Welcome fam. I'm Robin Divine, the organizer of Black People Trip. I serve Black womxn in the psychedelic space. I do this work because I want to help us live deeply and well. We deserve.
I'll keep this crisp because everyone is tired and I refuse to add to the overwhelm.
It's me. I'm everyone.
I founded Black People Trip in 2020 after I started using psychedelics to treat depression. I noticed that it was hard to find other Black people in this space and wanted to change that. As a result, I created a space where we could connect with each other, learn together and heal in community.
The mission of Black People Trip is to provide education, advocate for equity and create safe spaces for the Black community, specifically Black womxn.
I provide education through community outreach workshops. I create safe space by helping individuals find supportive BIPOC therapists, facilitators and healing spaces. In addition, I educate white therapists and facilitators on how to care for Black clients in psychedelic sessions. (The Creating Safer Guide I wrote can be purchased here.)
In terms of equity, I'm in the process of establishing the Entheogenic Equity Fund for Black Womxn - a non profit organization that will help cover the cost of psychedelic therapy. What sets this fund apart is that no one will be required to put their trauma on display in order to receive support. If someone needs help then they let us know and...we help.
This doesn't have to be hard.
I've removed myself from the chokehold of social media. Those platforms are racist, biased and honestly, don't deserve our content. You can find me here and on the Black People Trip podcast. The best ways to support my work are Patreon and through direct donations: Venmo@ divinerobin
