Our mission purpose:

We are a collective of professionals and peers interested in the potential psychological and spiritual healing properties of psychedelics.

PsychedeLiA’s program takes a harm reduction approach with these objectives:

  1. We aim to provide accurate information about mindful and safe preparation, engagement and integration of entheogenic experiences.

  2. We aim to offer educational tools to users of psychedelics and to their support systems.

  3. We aim to offer emotional support to individuals and groups who are curious about, are planning on exploring or have explored psychedelic states.

  4. We aim to create meaningful connections between community members.

Since 2016, PsychedeLiA hosts a series of educational psychedelic workshops, integration classes and community integration circles across the greater Los Angeles area and online.

Events are facilitated by beloved core members of our community. All facilitators are experienced and well-versed with psychedelic states, and incorporate their own tried and true integration and healing modalities into their practice.

The events are open to anyone that is curious about, is thinking about experimenting or has experimented with psychedelic substances and plant medicines. No previous experience with psychedelics is required to participate, but you must be over 18 to attend.

No illegal substances are used/served at our events, and we allow entrance only to those who appear to be in an UN-altered state (not intoxicated). There is time to connect with other like-minded community members and with the facilitator.

Our calendar updates monthly; sign up to our monthly mailer to keep posted on integration events.

We aim to grow our community, as it is the true medicine! Please share our events with friends and better yet - bring them along to one of our workshops.

We look forward to meeting you!

Greg Lawrence  is a  psychedelic integration specialist , an active member of the southern California plant medicine community and energy worker who believes that spiritual development and personal growth go hand in hand, that psychedelics and entheogens can be effective tools in the pursuit of both, and that community support can be a valuable component in the integration of other states of consciousness. He credits plant medicine, psychotherapy and the support of his family and peers with helping him turn his life around after personal tragedy turned it upside-down a few years ago. Greg is honored to be a part of PsychedeLiA's own growth by facilitating the West San Fernando Valley and Santa Monica integration circles.

John Saul  found himself rebuilding his life after having it turned upside-down a few years ago. In late 2012, he was struck by systemic sclerosis, or “scleroderma,” a debilitating, painful, incurable life-threatening illness. Through many means, including participation as a study subject in the MAPS-sponsored Phase II clinical trial of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for the treatment of anxiety due to life-threatening illness, John has been able to emerge out of the darkest place one could find themselves and rebuild his fortitude and his life. He hopes that by sharing his story of psychedelic healing he can show others that that it is possible to choose life over death, become your own cure, and meet the resulting challenges with love and an empathetic heart. John continues to explore and work with a wide variety of healing modalities including meditation, yoga and fitness, and is fascinated by witnessing the transformation of people who embark on therapeutic psychedelic journeys. John is a peer facilitator at the Santa Monica integration circles.
