Join Nikki Wyrd and Julian Vayne for a two day trip into the world of psychedelic magick. From peyote and ayahuasca to LSD and new exotic molecules – for thousands of years humans have used psychedelic states for healing, for spiritual discovery, for self-transformation and for magick. Over this weekend you’ll learn about ancient entheogenic cultures, the history of psychedelics in the western occult tradition, and get an update from the cutting edge of scientific research in this field. As well theory you’ll also have the opportunity to practice skills to enhance your work with psychedelics. Nikki and Julian will share techniques for using psychedelics in operative magical workings, such as casting sigils and other forms of spellcraft, as well as ways to curate group psychedelic ceremony.


Participants will have the opportunity to try several techniques over the weekend that can generate the psychedelic state without using drugs, including as part of an immersive ritual event on Day 2.


Whether you’re new to the field of mind altering substances, or are already an experienced psychonaut, you’ll find plenty of fresh, clearly explained, practical methods in these workshops. There will also be the opportunity for group discussion, where we’ll cover issues such as therapeutic protocols, dealing with challenges, entity encounters, psychedelic integration and the legal issues surrounding these magical materials.
