Psychedelic Program: Public Groups & Special Events

Services        About Us        Advisory Board        Public Groups & Special Events

Have you had a psychedelic experience and are looking for someone to talk to? Curious about what you’ve read about psychedelics in the news? Or maybe someone you know uses psychedelics and you’re wondering if it’s safe? Come to one of our monthly public groups, workshops or special guest lectures to learn more, share your story, and have your questions answered in a safe, supportive environment. Each event will be facilitated by one of our professionals and will include group discussion.

2017 Groups


Psychedelic integration groups are open to the public and meet the third Wednesday of each month from 7-9pm at 370 Lexington Ave, Suite 500. General admission, student discounts and package deals are available. Each group is led by Dr. Katherine MacLean, who is the director of our program and former research scientist and psychedelic guide in the Johns Hopkins Psilocybin Research Program.

*DISCLAIMER: The Psychedelic Education and Continuing Care Program does not provide psychoactive or illicit substances. We do not conduct or promote psychedelic psychotherapy and we do not provide referrals to “underground” (illegal) psychedelic services. Please do not attempt to distribute psychedelic drugs at group meetings or use the groups to disseminate information about underground psychedelic services. We strongly discourage the active use of psychedelics or other psychoactive drugs during group meetings.

Psychedelic Healing: A Workshop of the Soul

You are invited to join Neal M. Goldsmith, psychotherapist and author of Psychedelic Healing: The Promise of Entheogens for Psychotherapy and Spiritual Development, for a deep soul-loving workshop created to bring you down to the ground of your being and enable you to touch the light of love.

Dr. Goldsmith has developed an evening of intimate, heart-opening exercises that reflect and elicit the core issues the self faces in unfolding – love, safety, the true self vs. personality, transcendence, catharsis, acceptance, release, forgiveness, relationships with parents, partners, family. Through readings from his book introducing a series of exercises designed specifically to release the knots in your psyche, you will be led on a journey of emotional discovery and re-identification with your true, original self, an organism of light and love and learning.
