About us

Hi, I'm Stephen, and I'm the founder and director of the Psychedelic Society. I have extensive personal experience with a wide variety of psychedelics and have facilitated psychedelic sessions for a number of years. My psychedelic experiences have been amongst the most profound of my life, and have helped me to become a happier, calmer, kinder and more open-minded person.

I regularly dance 5Rhythms, facilitate Psychedelic Rhythms dance sessions, play squash and sit zazen. Psychedelics stimulated my interest in nondual philosophy and I am greatly inspired by the work of Alan Watts. I have attended meditation retreats at the Esalen Institute and Dhamma Dipa Vipassana meditation centre.

I am a camp lead for La Botica Exótica, a camp at European Burning Man events Nowhere and the Borderland, and have been on the organising team for several similar co-created gatherings in the UK. I am a committee member of the Breaking Convention multidisciplinary conference on psychedelic consciousness.

I live in London, enjoy a plant-based diet and do freelance digital work for a number of NGOs and political organisations. I have always been interested in the nature of reality and have Masters degrees in Physics from the University of Oxford and Complexity Sciences from the University of Bristol.

I believe that many people stand to benefit greatly from the careful use of psychedelic substances. I am deeply honoured to facilitate the Experience Weekends and bring to them my full love, energy and attention.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
