Surgery As Ceremony: Bringing intention and transformation to the surgical journey
Surgery and Ceremony are inherently similar processes. The ritualistic nature of surgery dates back to to ancient times, but over the years with the industrialization of medicine the awareness of the ritual has faded. This webinar will focus on Surgery as Ceremony ™: A methodology focused on guiding patients through a conscious experience during surgery to create powerful shifts in mindset and body.
When the process of surgery is treated as a ceremony, patients are given the opportunity to treat this rare experience with reverence and witness the harmonious interplay between the physical and soul bodies. Surgery as Ceremony involves a multidisciplinary team of experts to support the patient. It includes the surgeon, a lymphatic massage practitioner, and psychotherapist to provide comprehensive treatment of the mind, body and soul. Together they collaborate on a plan outlining the arc of the transformational journey staring with preparation, the procedure, and extending into aftercare for an optimal healing experience.
When performed with an intention of support and transformation, aesthetic and reconstructive surgery becomes an opportunity to enhance a person’s physical body so that they may more confidently express the highest version of their soul body. Like ceremony, surgery becomes a ritual of transformation through which an individual meets a new version of self.

The PAC “Industry Presents Series” Sponsored by Clearmind: Traditional vs. Novel Psychedelics
Join Clearmind Medicine CEO, Adi Zuloff-Shani, and MAPS Founder and Psychedelic Sector pioneer, Rick Doblin, as they discuss Traditional vs. Novel Psychedelics, and other issues related to the growing and changing International Psychedelic space. Classic psychedelics, which include LSD, mescaline and psilocybin, have been used by humans for millennia. There is a large and growing body of scientific knowledge surrounding these substances and their effects. Recently, scientific advances have led to the creation of new medicines referred to as Novel Psychedelics, similar in pharmacology to classic psychedelics. Psychedelic science brings together the diverse fields of medicinal chemistry and pharmaceutical science, neuroscience, and psychological medicine in a therapeutically promising – not to mention fascinating – area of research. The current psychedelic renaissance is opening the doors to the benefits of both the traditional and novel, as old traditions are being renewed and new molecules are being identified.

Compassionate Access to Psilocybin
78% of Canadians support access to psilocybin therapy at the end of life. (Nanos Poll 2020)
If a Canadian can qualify for MAID (medical assistance in dying) then surely they should have the right to have psilocybin therapy first.
Help us get 500 000 signatures on this Federal Petition.
Making it the MOST successful petition ever.
We only have 30 days to get the signatures required to have it read in Parliament.
Donations to our Compassionate Access Campaign will help us bring changes to out of date regulations, which permit terminally ill and mental health patients to access Medical Assistance in Dying, yet they cannot have access to psilocybin. This game-changing petition is one of many parts. Our goal is to raise $100,000 through donations and sponsorships to support the changing of hearts and the educating of minds in government and leadership, through July 2023.
As a non-profit organization, we can’t do this alone - we need your help. With your investment in this vital campaign, you become a core member of the psychedelic movement in Canada and you help patients in need get the treatments they deserve. By sponsoring this campaign you can play a key role in fundamentally shifting the psychedelic and healthcare landscape in Canada.
