What Is A Psychonaut?

If you’re a regular reader of our blogs you will have noticed we use the word ‘psychonaut’ quite often.

Top 5 Ways To Celebrate Bicycle Day

Bicycle Day! For psychonauts it’s kinda like Christmas. Except that instead of celebrating the birth of Jesus, or Santa riding through the sky on his sleigh — we celebrate the birth of something that certainly has the power to convert you — and a ride that makes Kris Kringle’s look tame.  Yes! As you may […]

Mushrooms: The Next Plastic?

Ever thought about how often you use plastic? Most of us prefer to think of ourselves as “environment-friendly”, but there’s a lot of things that can slip through our ‘eco’-net without us realising.  A lot of products we use daily are made out of plastic, such as Starbucks coffee cups, straws, and boxes for Chinese […]

How To Combat Post-Lockdown Anxiety

How To Have A Psychedelic Easter

Easter is a strange holiday. Not having a fixed date, it always seems to take one by surprise — ‘some time around April I think…’  being the general guess. In this day and age, we are less governed by either the Christian Church or the movement of the moon, like the ancient Pagans were; thus […]
