About the Psychedelic Society

Today the San Francisco Psychedelic Society is a bay area 501(c)(3) non-profit organization devoted to weaving community with people from all walks of life who share an interest in the exploration of altered states of consciousness.

We are dedicated to helping individuals, and the global community, unlock the healing and transformative potential of psychedelics while seeking to honor their Indigenous lineages.

Our mission is to educate and advocate for altered states of consciousness by providing community, support and integration resources to those seeking harm reduction, addiction recovery, spiritual growth and personal development. We emphasize honoring indigenous lineages, access without dogma and the destigmatization of all drugs.

Our Roots

Daniel Jabbour birthed the first ever Psychedelic Society in December of 2011 during the MAPS Psychedelic Science conference in Oakland. He rapidly began holding a variety of meetings and events for the group, from harm reduction to digital security and even speaking at Burning Man. Sadly, two years after the group’s inception Daniel Jabour passed away, leaving the community at a massive loss and with uncertain leadership.

In April of 2018 there was a search for new leadership and several people stepped up to share the responsibility of the society and dedicate themselves to this work; Danielle Negrin, Damla Gungor, and Seth Warner have remained the core team with help from a wide range of contributors. We rebirthed this organization into existence after many years hiatus and incorporated as a non profit organization 501(c)(3) in 2019.
