Our name is a reference to Beatrice Portinari: the woman often cited as the spark that ignited the Renaissance movement.
Beatrice’s legendary beauty, grace, and wit are said to have influenced Dante Alighieri’s infamous epic poem, The Divine Comedy. In the book, a fictionalized version of Beatrice serves as a wise and knowledgeable guide to the underworld and afterlife.
Like Dante’s muse, we aim to spark a movement to a new era. Psychedelics and functional mushrooms are more than just food and hallucinogenic drugs.
Functional mushrooms and psychedelics have the power to transform our health and well-being through improved cognition, immunity, and mental wellness.
We aim to serve as a guide, socializing every aspect and benefit of this new world, and joining forces with leading medical producers, scientists and therapists to promote the shared cause of access and education to safe therapeutic solutions.
Currently under development inside The Waterworks Food Hall, the newest and most sought-after development in Toronto, our flagship space will be the industry’s pinnacle for exploration and education.
People will come to experience Beatrice Society Inc. through product exploration, educational seminars and workshops, speaking engagements, and events.
