Welcome to the new monthly Psychedelic Society Sharing Circle in Frome, a social event and gathering to connect with like-minded individuals, explore new topics related to personal growth and spirituality, and deepen your understanding of yourself and others.

During our circle, we will incorporate a variety of activities and techniques to help facilitate connection and self-exploration, including meditation or visualizations, sharing circles, pods, journaling, self-inquiry, connection activities, and rituals.

This event is not about promoting or advocating the use of psychedelics, but rather providing a platform for those who have had such experiences to openly share their insights, revelations, and reflections. Whether you've encountered altered states of consciousness through psychedelics and other tools of consciousness alteration, or are simply curious to learn from others, this discussion circle welcomes it all.

Our intention is to create a space of safety and support where you can share your thoughts, feelings, and experiences with others who are on a similar path of self-discovery. We encourage you to come with an open mind and an open heart, ready to engage in meaningful conversations and build a community of like-minded individuals.

Whether you are new to the world of the Psychedelic Society or have been with us on this journey for a while, our sharing circle offers a unique opportunity to connect, grow, and find your tribe. We look forward to seeing you there!

Disclaimer

While this work may have therapeutic benefits, this is not therapy or a replacement for therapy. If you are experiencing significant mental health challenges, we strongly encourage you to seek 1-1 support from a qualified psychotherapist.

While we do our best to create an environment that feels safe and inclusive, it is your responsibility to look after your own needs and boundaries. If this is something you struggle with, or you are concerned about any element of this workshop please contact us in advance. We are very willing to chat and check in about whether this workshop is right for you at this time.

Depending on your needs and expectations from this event, you may find that our  Psychedelic Integration Circle, with Somerset-based Psychotherapist Justine Corrie, is better suited for your requirements.

Carly Birch

Carly is a facilitator, event curator and co-director of the Psychedelic Society. She holds a reverence for the transformative potential of immersive retreats, and crafts events designed to cultivate a deeper connection with ourselves, each other and the natural world. 

An advocate for the safe and therapeutic use of psychedelics, she is in the final stage of accreditation in Transpersonal Psychology Coaching with the Alef Trust and Psychedelic Therapy and Integration with VITAL, aiding her experience in creating transformative passages through expanded states of consciousness.

Michael Barry

With a background as a doctor of Emergency Medicine, Michael is currently retraining as a psychedelic-assisted psychotherapist with the goal of helping people to prevent illnesses before they reach a crisis point. He works at a residential addiction rehab clinic in Weston-super-Mare, working 1-1 and in groups.

He has completed the Psychedelic Practitioner training at the Synthesis Institute, during which he did a month long placement at a retreat centre in Mexico combining Western psychotherapy and Ayahuasca, and is now apprenticing and assisting on various retreats.

Outside of the western clinical framework, he is walking the path of sacred plant medicines in the Peruvian tradition, and has done a number of traditional “plant dietas” in Peru in 2021, 2022 and 2023 with Alonso del Río. He also practices Buddhist ways of being and silent retreat work, with a particular focus on concentration and insight meditation (samatha and vipassanā) and the cultivation of beautiful states of mind (brahmavihārās). His favourite thing in the world is to play guitar and sing to Mother Earth within ceremony.
