Welcome to the New Brooklyn Psychedelic Society!
BICYCLE DAY 2021: A Rebirth
Happy Bicycle Day! Also, a happy birthday to Brooklyn Psychedelic Society, as today we are officially being (re)born. As many of you know, we have been hinting at some really big changes coming to BPS that we’ve been waiting to announce until the time was right. Today, that day has finally come.
Our mission is to make psychedelic healing a publicly accessible good through community, education, democratic ownership, and advocacy.
Fiscally sponsored by MAPS, the nonprofit currently funding phase 3 clinical trials for MDMA-assisted psychotherapy.

Launching a Psychedelic Co-op
Over the course of the summer, we will be rolling out a psychedelic co-op. This will the first of its kind democratically owned healing and transformation center that we hope can be a model for how these medicines and their accompany modalities can be made publicly owned and accessible. This is something we’re very excited about and will be needing a lot of support and input from the community on. 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 in the coming weeks.
