APS @ The Rainbow Serpent Festival

The Australian Psychedelic Society attended the
Rainbow Serpent Festival

This January the APS crew have been having a good ole time at the Rainbow Serpent Festival.

This year we hosted a panel discussion alongside PRISM: Psychedelic Research in Science & Medicine and Mind Medicine Australia.
We also hosted a stall where we collected thousands of signatures for the Students for Sensible Drug Policy Australia campaign for pill testing #BeHeardNotHarmed.
We can’t wait for the next one!

EVENT: Breathwork Circle- Melbourne

APS-Melbourne Presents
Breathwork Circle – February

Last December, our practiced, caring facilitators, Teneille and Kristine help guide a full room of participants through our first Conscious Connected Breathing circle, guided by the beautifully curated sounds of Krti Psyskrit. Throughout the session there was a lot of emotion and catharsis being expressed. This left people feeling connected, light and refreshed.

During this practice, the body is oxygenated and as increased amounts of energy reach parts of the body that have long been held in tension, stored or suppressed memories, emotions and mental patterns, are recalled and released. During this kind of Breathwork,  participants often report psychedelic states similar to those induced by entheogens. In the 1970s this practice was pioneered in the west by Dr Stanislav Grof as an alternative to using LSD in therapy sessions.

Note: This practice is completely safe when done with a trained instructor, however it is not suitable for people with some medical conditions, please check out the information in our facebook event to see if this practice is for you.
