The First Step in Safe and Responsible Use is Information.
Before partaking in entheogenic healing, a review of information on the plant/fungi that you will be building a relationship with during this practice is essential. Each entheogen has different protocols, unique wisdom, varying durations, and pre/post care practices that should be considered when deciding which entheogen may best support your healing process.
The Port Townsend Psychedelic Society aims to connect individuals with trusted sources of information, though our website, social media, personal referrals, and community events. These sources include local experts and teachings, as well as links to the websites of various organizations that have assembled vast amounts of information and knowledge from throughout the world on effective preparation, use, and integration (such as the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), Erowid, Chacruna, Women’s Visionary Congress, Psychedelic Sangha, Polaris, Being True to You, ICEERS, the Global Ibogaine Therapeutic Alliance, and Wasiwaska, just to name a few).
We hope to partner with various local agencies and organizations with a healing focus, such as our county public health department, the Port Townsend Recovery Cafe, and our hospital. Through such alliances, we can better support community outreach, education, and engagement on participating with entheogens in ways that support positive transformation.
