Swimming in the Sacred offers a revelatory look into the past half century of psychedelics use via in-depth interviews Harris conducted with women elders who have worked underground guiding sacred entheogenic journeys to cultivate insight, healing, and spiritual development.
"The women elders have thousands of hours of experience with entheogens via their own journeys and guiding others, writes Harris. “They know that these medicines are a way of life, that they open us to larger worlds, that integration is a life-long process."
“The women guides of the psychedelic underground have been in relationship with these medicines for decades, providing a sacred container for entheogenic journeys,” writes Harris. “We need to hear from them now more than ever.”

The PAC “Industry Presents Series” Sponsored by Clearmind: Traditional vs. Novel Psychedelics
**PLEASE NOTE the new date for this webinar. If you purchased tickets for the October 19th date they will be honoured.
Join Clearmind Medicine CEO, Adi Zuloff-Shani, VP Business Development, Mark Haden 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.
