We are a psychedelic society that promotes personal growth and collaboration around the use of sacred medicines and psychedelics. We work to preserve the human right to nature-based interventions and to be a place of healing and education for all.

Omar is a veteran and end-of-life doula whose Afro-Caribbean upbringing led him to seek out non-traditional answers to his own PTSD and trauma issues in the early 90's. His search eventually took him to Mexico where he underwent 30 days of fasting, isolation, and intensive sacred mushroom work under curandero guidance.

about dps

We are a psychedelic community with roots in Africa, the Americas, and across the Caribbean. We view sacred medicine use as a biological right for the exploration of existence, celebration of life,  and furthering the reality of healthy, peaceful, and balanced living in this world.

OUR 7 Core Principles

We foster collaboration across the psychedelic spectrum. 

II.  Community Building 

Personal, family, and community wholeness is our goal.

III.  Medicine as a Way of Life

Sacred medicine use is valid as part of a healthy lifestyle.

IV. A Place of Bridges Between Communities

We embrace practices that cut across ideology to unite. 

V. Dedicated to Constructively Disrupting the Norm

We embrace new paradigms that legitimize responsible psychedelic use.

VI.  A Commitment to Nature and Restorative Practices

    We are stewards who find solutions in the blueprint provided by nature.

VII. The Responsibility of Intentional Medicine Use

Medicine use is a sacred act and is treated as such.
