Our Origin Story

Dana and Bea came together in their search for like-minded women to connect with around their shared interests in psychedelics and self development. When they couldn’t find the community they desired, they created their own!

Birthed in November 2021, Vancouver Women In Psychedelics (VWIP) launched with 15 ladies showing up at Bea’s apartment complex for a potluck dinner. They connected, shared stories, and learned about each others’ interests. By the end of the evening, they knew we wanted to meet again…and again. By the end of the year, just by word-of-mouth, the group had more than 50 members.

More local events and initiatives were launched in 2022 as the group continued to grow and to gain recognition in psychedelic communities around the world. The feedback was that there were women everywhere who were craving this kind of community.

In April 2022, VWiP rebranded into Sisters In Psychedelics (SIP), removing geographical barriers to create a global sisterhood.

Previously a c-suite executive and head of investor relations at Numinus, one of the leading publicly traded psychedelics companies, Dana stepped down to pursue a different avenue of supporting and educating people around the intentional use of psychedelics for transformation.

Bea Chan

Community Builder & Mental Health Advocate

After 7 years of an unfulfilling corporate career, Bea quit her job, bought a one-way ticket to Asia and embraced the digital nomad lifestyle.

Her journey from Canada to Thailand to Mexico led her to sacred plant medicine. Guided by the universe, she birthed a few creations into the world, including:

Wanting to elevate the feminine presence and invite more diversity into the psychedelic space, Bea collided with Dana at the right time to bring Sisters In Psychedelics to life.

She’s also a contributing writer on platforms like: Women On Psychedelics, Canadian Psychedelic Association and was featured on National TV as a psilocybin advocate.

Why a Sisterhood?

There’s something magical when women come together to share experiences, stories, thoughts, ideas, and strength. We have been doing this in sisterhood and circles since the beginning of time.

Today, and in the realm of psychedelic healing and growth, we need this perhaps more than ever.

Why?

Women have particular physical, emotional and spiritual experiences that are simply not shared across genders, and we need a safe place to share these with others who understand them first-hand.

There is a beautiful level of intimacy and support in women’s groups that simply can’t be replicated in mixed gender groups.

Due to historical and systemic gender-based power imbalances, it can sometimes be difficult for women to let their guards down in the company of men.

We believe in diversity and inclusion in the psychedelic space, and that, of course, includes all genders. In addition to mixed gender opportunities, a sisterhood provides a unique opportunity for women to revel in, celebrate and support our divine feminine selves.
