Launching a Psychedelic Co-op

BPS is busy developing a one-of-a-kind psychedelic co-op. The coop will be a democratically owned healing and transformation center that we hope will become a model for making these powerful medicines a publicly accessible good. This is a project we’re very excited about and one that we’ll need a great deal of support from you, our community, to realize. Sign up for our newsletter for more info.

The Journey Cohort Program

The Journey Cohort Program will be the primary offering of the psychedelic co-op. This will be a healing and integration program for before, during, and after a transformative journey in a small group setting. More details will be announced soon. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter for updates.
