About
‚ÄúPsychedelics might be for the mind what the microscope and the telescope are for the living world beneath our feet, and the stars above our heads.‚Ä̬†¬†¬†¬† -¬†¬†¬†¬† Stanislav Grof‚Äôs assertion here remains the kernel point of our society, namely that non-ordinary states of consciousness, and the tools to induce them, are indispensable rudiments for any complete cartography of mind.¬†¬†In the same way it is impossible to truly understand the nature of matter and energy by solely describing the¬†behaviour¬†of water at room temperature, we believe it is impossible to truly understand the nature of the human by describing its¬†behaviour¬†within a narrow range of conscious states.¬†¬†Welcome to the UCL Society for the Application of Psychedelics (SAP)¬†¬†Here at SAP we believe a¬†fully-fledged¬†transdisciplinary investigation of psychedelic drugs - that both deploys prevailing, and devises pioneering, methods of inquiry - is an urgent task for humanity.¬†¬†¬†We welcome everyone, from the inconspicuous observer to the fervent orator, and run a range of events such as a regular journal club, discourse circles, guest lectures and panel discussions that aim to¬†utilise¬†every academic apparatus, from neuropsychopharmacology to¬†antipositivist¬†anthropology.¬†¬†If you would like to hear more about the interaction between psychedelics and biological, sociological or conjectural systems then follow our social media for updates.¬†Feel free to message us any questions on¬†facebook, especially in this unsettling time.¬†¬†Facebook, Instagram, Twitter: @uclsap¬†¬†So¬†come along, open your mind: you never know what you might find!¬†¬†
