About Us

And our transformative community

Welcome to our humble abode. I'm Colin Pugh, the Executive Director for BPS (the guy in the blue shirt in the photo below). I'm really excited to have you here, on our website, checking us out, and seeing if this community might be your cup of tea. I really hope it is.


I've been working hard since 2015 to take this from an idea to what is now a reality of over 7,000 people who come together each month to connect over the power of psychedelics. I hope to see you soon at one of our upcoming events!

Our Story

Brooklyn Psychedelic Society was founded by Colin in response to a transformative experience he had with MDMA after the loss of a close friend.


When he recognized the healing power of psychedelics he began building this community with grassroots efforts.


We now have over 7,000 followers and continue to grow each day.

Our Structure

Brooklyn Psychedelic Society, Inc., operates a charitable project fiscally sponsored by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), (Federal TX ID: 59-2751953), a Section 501(c)3 public charity.


In accordance with federal tax requirements, MAPS exercises discretion and control over all project funds. Please make your donations for the purposes of the project directly to MAPS.


Our Team

We envision a world where people can safely access affordable resources and a community centered around their psychedelic journey.
