Psychedelic medicine and psychedelic-assisted therapy are demonstrating tremendous positive impact for trauma survivors, people struggling with depression or suicidality, individuals at the end of life, and many others. This presentation and community discussion will engage the topic of healing through non-ordinary states of consciousness, as has been practiced for centuries by indigenous cultures and more recently through the advent of Psychedelic Psychotherapy. We’ll also focus on MAPS, Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, initiative to make mdma-assisted psychotherapy an FDA approved legal treatment for PTSD (anticipated 2021), training opportunities for psychedelic psychotherapists, efforts to expand access to culturally-relevant psychedelic healing, and other political and ethical questions arising within this emergent, yet ancient, field of medicine.
