You'll have the opportunity to connect with our incredible community, made up of people from across Canada who are passionate about psychedelics and plant medicines.

- Share your personal experiences and create new friendships with like-minded and like-hearted new friends.

- Network with others who may be interested to learn about your professional services or businesses.

- Get a “sneak peek” of what the CPA has planned for our community in 2021 (you’re going to love it!).

Music and psychedelics - Part 1

Music! Humanity's muse. Nietzsche once said that "Without music, life would be a mistake." Music has the power to make us laugh, cry, dance, and ponder deep philosophical questions. It moves our soul, heart, and body as nothing else can, and sometimes, all at once. Music connects humanity across culture and time. Sounds can reach deep down into us and help move trauma around and engage our cells in a symphony of healing and insights across our emotional, logical, and spiritual bodies.

The latest scientific literature is promising when it comes to pairing psychedelic therapy with music to help us feel better. Data and research papers are increasingly digging deep into the science behind the breakthroughs possible. Indigenous cultures are way ahead in that department and have understood the healing powers of sound for a very long time as music is a core element of plant medicine ceremonies and other spiritual practices.

Join us as we explore the fascinating world of music, sound therapy, and psychedelics in a series of webinars on the subject. In the first episode, we will talk about some of the science behind sounds and their ability to affect our cells and body, using sound and psychedelics in a therapeutic context, the emotional language of music, music in a shamanic context with plant medicines, and lots more.

And of course, there will be live music!
