Psychedelic Integration Circle - with Cambridge Psychedelics
A facilitated, supportive space to meet with others to share and explore your experiences.
The Psychedelic Society is proud to be partnering with Cambridge Psychedelics and their expert team of facilitators on this in-person integration circle.
Who we are
Cambridge Psychedelics is a facilitated peer support and sharing circle with the aim of supporting the integration of psychedelic experiences into people’s lives in a way that is helpful and meaningful to them. Our facilitator team is made up of practitioners with a wealth experience in the field of psychedelic support and expertise in contemporary research into psychedelic assisted therapy (see bios below).
What we do
Our circle is a non-judgemental, confidential space for those who have used psychedelics or are considering using them. If you have had a challenging psychedelic experience and want to make sense of it, or wish to share a meaningful experience, then this is for you. The group focuses on experiences induced by use of psychedelics; it does not offer therapy. It is simply a safe space for people to share their experiences or hear from others if they are considering whether use of psychedelics is right for them.
The group recognises the positive potential of the use of psychedelics, but always works within the law. Participants are asked not to turn up under the influence of substances and not to take psychedelics in the session. We will also ask participants not to share information about illegal psychedelic services.
The group runs every month and the number of facilitators present will depend on the number of attendees (max. 15 participants per circle). The facilitators will rotate and thus vary from session to session.
Our facilitators currently give their time on a voluntary basis. The ticket price only covers the venue and associated organisational costs, so if you are able to afford a Supporter ticket, please do so, as this will help ensure these much-needed spaces continue and support the future of the UK integration circle network. If you can afford a Standard price ticket, please select this option to free up more low income spaces to those people who really need them.
To keep the cost of attending the integration circle as low as possible, proceeds from events organised by Cambridge Consciousness Forum may be used to subsidise it. If you cannot afford the ticket price, get in touch with us as we aim to provide some reduced and assisted places for each circle in order to be as accessible as possible to those in most need of this support.
If you have any questions about psychedelic integration or this group specfically, please contact Mags Houston: email@example.com

Alex has had a longstanding interest in the use of psychedelic and other drugs in all their contexts, therapeutic, spiritual/mystical, euphoric and other, and in harm reduction practices in all these domains. He has been fascinated to follow the renaissance of research into therapeutic use of psychedelics and empathogens to help people with many different mental health issues.
