About the Talk:
Finding the Others: How to Build a Robust Psychedelic Community
Even though interest in psychedelics is growing, it can be challenging to find local people to safely discuss this taboo topic. Grassroot psychedelic communities are popping up like mushrooms all across the country, but they need engaged supporters like you!
This talk will explore the recipe for growing a healthy community centered around psychedelic enthusiasm. Tobey and Elizabeth will share knowledge gained from over 10 years of experience in building psychedelic clubs, societies, and integration groups. This presentation will offer an introduction to community building, tips for getting started, and explore the future of psychedelic communities.
This class will:
- Explore the elements of a healthy psychedelic community
- Discuss how members can help reduce harmful behaviors from interlopers
- Describe what it takes to be an ethical leader and how to grow into one
- Brainstorm what future psychedelic villages might look like
- Offer tips and tricks to strengthen your grassroots movement
