Community Psychedelic Integration Circle
After a psychedelic experience it can be challenging to integrate the experience into our everyday lives. This circle can help by allowing safe space for discussion about these experiences and to offer and receive support to/from the community. All are welcome. This is a peer support circle (not group therapy). Facilitated by Julie Barron, M.A. (Transpersonal Michigan) and Michaelene Ruhl, PsyD (Dragonfly Journeys).
Cost: $15 – $20 suggested community contribution. This group will run the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of every month. Please visit the site for additional details and RSVP.

The Detroit Psychedelic Community consists of mycologists, educators, students, herbalists, historians, midwives, psychotherapists, and others who have a passion for entheogens and their many healing, spiritual, ancestral and medicinal uses. We share our expertise and experience(s) on psilocybin, ayahausca, ibogaine, and DMT, along with LSD, cannabis, and others.

This year, millions of people will use psychedelics outside of supervised medical contexts, many of them for the first time. Taking psychedelics can result in overwhelming and uncomfortable experiences, more likely with high doses, amongst first-time users, and without adequate preparation or setting. Psychedelic harm reduction includes a variety of methods to help prevent and transform difficult experiences while in a non-ordinary state of consciousness.
