About the event

Psychedelics in Recovery (PIR) is a syncretic organization adapting elements of Twelve Step Fellowships (TSFs), most notably: Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA), and Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA), to attract members looking to incorporate the psychedelic experience as part of a spiritual program of ongoing recovery. The philosopher Alan Watts described the psychedelic experience as, “revelations of the secret workings of the brain, of the associative and patterning processes, the ordering systems which carry out all our sensing and thinking” (Watts, 2013). Watts saw value in using psychedelics to elicit such states that are for the psyche, “not an acquisitive process of learning more and more facts or greater and greater skills, but rather an unlearning of wrong habits and opinions.

This is a peer-led group meeting every Wednesday at 6:30pm at Psanctum Thrift.
