Democratizing transformative experience through community
WHO WE ARE
The Brooklyn Psychedelic Society is a community-based not-for-profit that supports individuals pursuing transformative psychedelic experiences. Our offerings include education, workshops, community-gatherings, support services, and many other programs for before and after a psychedelic experience. We seek to be an ecosystem that makes flourishing from a transformative experience more likely, both for the individual and society at large.
Brooklyn Psychedelic Society is situated in Brooklyn, NY, which is one of the most diverse cities in the world. This is our chance to reconstruct the significance of psychedelics beyond its usual boundaries.
The psychedelic experience is a very powerful catalyst for change and growth. The work we do before and after are actually what makes this experience transformative. We aim to provide structures to aid in healthy, dynamic growth.
We seek to be a grounded environment and brand by having a relaxed, calm space as well as a subtle and new aesthetic around psychedelics. BPS should be able to simultaneously feel like a refuge for those in distress as well as a launching pad for those looking to learn and change.
"It is our mission to provide the right soil for the psychedelic
experience...both for the individual and for society at large."

- HOW YOUR DONATIONS WILL HELP BROOKLYN PSYCHEDELIC SOCIETY -
As some of you may know, we are fiscally sponsored by MAPS. Meaning every donation you give is now tax-deductible and greatly appreciated! However we are operating as a not-for-profit, and would need to file the necessary paperwork to take us to the next level: A nonprofit organization. This would result in filing fees and legal fees to get us there.
RESTRUCTURING OF NEW PROGRAMS AND EVENTS
While we're adding more reoccurring programs focused on a wider variety of demographics and subject matters, we're also gearing up to represent top experts in the field of psychedelic research and activism.
TOP TO BOTTOM BPS IDENTITY REVAMP
The brand identity of BPS began from a great place. But as time went on, we recognized a change was needed to reflect a community we are so humbly grateful to sustain. And over time we hope to strengthen these bonds, maintaining stability through our evolution.
STAFF / VOLUNTEERS
There have been many people to pass through our doors who have chosen to give their time, their energy, and their skill set to BPS with little to no reward. Even though we believe our gratitude is worth a million bucks, unfortunately our many thanks cannot be eaten! We'd hope to provide the necessary resources to encourage a steady forward momentum.
OFFICE / EVENT SPACE
With our growing programs and team expansions, we'd love to have a comfortable and familiar space to host our thriving community. Now, more than ever, we see the importance of having a prominent psychedelic center for our collective to utilize and enjoy.
