Programs
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. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter for updates.
