About the event
Psychedelic Speed-Friending is a night of sweet conversation, open to everyone, where you can drop the small talk and ask the questions you REALLY want to ask. We use the word ‘speed’ in the loosest possible sense. Real connection can't be rushed and neither will we!
Taking inspiration from the 36 Questions to Intimacy and The School of Life's '100 Questions', this kind of platonic friend ‘dating’ gives you a menu of profound, intriguing, and spicy questions designed to inspire authenticity and deepen your connection with those around you.
You’ll be guided through playful ice breakers, and into a series of 10 minute conversations with strangers, in groups of 2's and 3's throughout the evening and landing into free flowing socialising.
You’ll leave here with new friends and inspiration for how to guide conversation into juicy and interesting territory.
The night will be hosted by Mags Houston, Co-director and Events Curator for The Psychedelic Society. Members are invited to bring a non-member friend with them - this requires a separate ticket.
We will be meeting at Love Shack, a vegan restaurant and cocktail bar spread over three beautiful exposed brick arches in the heart of Hackney, East London. A variety of delicious food, drinks (including mushroom cacao!) will be available for purchase.
We kindly ask that you arrive no later than 19:15 so we can begin on time and close the container for deep connection and conversation. If you would like to enjoy some of Love Shack's incredible food, please try to order and eat before or after the event. There will be a short break in the middle for you to grab drinks from the bar. You will have time after the event to socialise freely and continue conversations with the people you've met during the evening.
