Saturday, March 9, occult author Erik Davis will be leading the first San Francisco Psychedelic Sangha meet-up. This will take place at 7:30 pm at the SF Dharma Collective, on 2701 Folsom Street. Their site says:
“Are you a psychonaut looking for a complementary meditation practice? A way to integrate and navigate psychedelic experience through the contemplative and philosophical tools of Buddhism?
“Or maybe you’re a Buddhist who is curious but cautious about “entheogens” and their potential for healing and illumination. Or perhaps you are a seasoned practitioner who found the dharma through the “paisley gate” and never entirely closed the gate behind you.
“The Psychedelic Sangha is a spiritual collective of Buddhist psychonauts who share a commitment to the dharma and a belief in the value of psychedelic substances. Our public mission is to facilitate the encounter of psychedelics and the dharma in a spirit of critical dialogue, community-building, and navigational group practice. We organize and host meet-up Gatherings, immersive Happenings, public talks, group retreats, music performances, film screenings, and more. We are not allied with any particular tradition or school.
“This Psychedelic Sangha Gathering will open up a safe and supportive spiritual community space with a commitment to discrimination, practice, and play. We offer a refuge for misfit Buddhists and psychonauts who value both dharma practice and psychedelic exploration, but are willing to interrogate them both along the path towards greater insight and engaged action.”
