The path of self-discovery and growth can be a lonely one. But we don't need to do it alone. 

Welcome to the monthly Psychedelic Society Sharing Circle, a gathering for our members to connect with others, explore new topics related to personal growth and spirituality, and deepen your understanding of yourself and others.

Each month, we will focus on a different theme inspired by the seasons and their gentle teachings of how we might be in this world.

This month's theme: PRESENCE

“In any moment, no matter how lost we feel, we can take refuge in presence and love. We need only pause, breathe, and open to the experience of aliveness within us. In that wakeful openness, we come home to the peace and freedom of our natural awareness.” ― Tara Brach

Almost every spiritual tradition and sage through time has told us that being present, in this moment with all of our being, is the key to a good life. They tell us: ‘the present is all we have,' and encourage us to ‘be here now.' Presence is a gateway to transcendence, enabling us to tap into the infinite wellspring of inner peace and joy that resides within each of us. It is where our senses come alive through seeing, smelling, tasting the reality around us. Being present with ourselves and our emotions also helps us be present for others; offering them the gift of our undivided attention, creating space for shared moments of vulnerability and intimacy. 

And yet we spend so much of our lives out of the present. Our bodies are here but our minds are planning and worrying about the future or analysing the past. Both are important but how can we find a better balance in this busy world?

In this circle, we will collectively explore the power of being present, our resistance to it, and practices to help us experience the beauty of this life as it is in this moment: 

Order of events:

  • Opening meditation on being present
  • Warm up and connection exercise through movement
  • One-to-one sharing
  • Ritual to ground us in the present
  • Group sharing circle

Location & getting there

We are delighted to be meeting at our friend and partner, Yoga in the Stars' beautiful space in Leytonstone for this circle. We will have tea and chai, but feel free to bring snacks to share.

These gatherings are for our members to offer a space for building deeper community in London. Want to join us? Join here from just £5 a month.

Whether you are new to the world of 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! 

What you can expect:

  1. Connection: Our monthly events offer a unique opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who share similar interests, passions, and struggles. 
  2. Self-discovery: Gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your place in the world. Sharing circles can offer a safe and supportive space to explore personal beliefs, values, and experiences, and to gain insights into how these factors shape our lives.
  3. Healing: By sharing our stories and experiences, we can release pent-up emotions, gain perspective, and receive validation and support from others who have gone through similar struggles.
  4. Growth: This will be a space for learning, reflection, and growth, as participants gain new knowledge, skills, and perspectives from each other.
