Have you had a powerful psychedelic/entheogenic experience?
Are you looking for a safe space to process your insights?
GATHERINGS is a community-led peer integration circle with a commitment to inquiry and harm reduction.
A psychedelic/entheogenic experience can be beautiful, but also harrowing and confusing. Having a safe place and access to a community who understand this experience can be hugely beneficial.
GATHERINGS are where individuals come to safely share their psychedelic experience and knowledge with the support of a trained facilitator and compassionate spiritual community.
Psychedelic Sangha and The New York Psychedelic Society have joined forces to launch a series of GATHERINGS dedicated entirely to psychedelic integration and harm reduction education.
Our aim is to cultivate a community-led peer integration circle that is non-hierarchical, non-judgmental, accessible, diverse, and educational. And we are committed to providing opportunities to learn the principles of harm reduction.
Dr. Katherine MacLean is our facilitator-in-residence who will spearhead the first three GATHERINGS that will take place in the Assembly Hall at Judson Memorial Church starting August 1st, and then meeting monthly thereafter on a regular schedule.
Katherine MacLean, PhD is a research scientist, teacher and meditator. In her academic research at UC Davis and Johns Hopkins University, she studied how psychedelics and mindfulness meditation can promote beneficial, long-lasting changes in personality, well-being and brain function. Following her younger sister’s untimely death from cancer, she left academia and co-founded the Psychedelic Education & Continuing Care Program in New York, which focuses on increasing awareness and reducing risks of psychedelic use. She has traveled throughout the United States and internationally to facilitate integration groups for psychedelics users and lead trainings and educational workshops for clinicians and the public. She currently lives on an organic farm with her husband and two small children. Learn more: www.katherinemaclean.org
