Our Purpose

Port Townsend Psychedelic Society aims to cultivate appreciation and respect for entheogens and their healing potentials within our community. We support decriminalization, a grow-gift-gather approach, and are committed to ensuring these medicines are equitably accessible. We seek to educate and empower our community members to engage with psychedelics in safe, respectful, and effective ways. We believe entheogens can help us cultivate a healthier community of individuals connected with themselves, one another, the more than human world, and spiritual well-being.

Land Acknowledgement

The Port Townsend Psychedelic Society acknowledges that the city of Port Townsend and eastern Jefferson County, Washington lie on the traditional land of the Chimacum people. Jefferson County, which spreads west across the Olympic Peninsula to the Pacific Ocean, covers land that belonged to numerous other native populations, including S’Klallam, Quileute, Queets, and ChalAt’i’lo t’sikAti (Chalat’).

 

We acknowledge the longer history of our location here and recognize that these lands and waters had significance, and continue to have significance, for these peoples. We strive to enrich ourselves by learning from native groups about their relationships to these places. It is our desire to show our gratitude for them by supporting Indigenous people in any way that we can.
