Women Elders in Psychedelics: Science and Spirituality in Self-Discovery and Self-Care.
The internationalization of Ayahuasca and the current interest in entheogens and psychedelics for treatment and self-discovery bring challenges to professionals and participants alike. While licensed ritual use, research and clinical efforts are moving forward, there seems to be little knowledge available for the community at large regarding the experiences, and the potential awakening precipitated by non-ordinary states of consciousness (NOSC).
This presentation discuses the “maps” necessary for depth inner exploration, for these journeys require a broader cartography of the self and the unseen, transpersonal realms. We will address how in NOSC each person’s experience is unique, why issues such as boundaries, identities and ethics need specific attention, and how to wisely manage care of one’s body, soul, and spirit during the process of self-discovery.

Canada Supports Campaign
The PAC to introduce new regulatory change to Health Canada
Canada overwhelmingly supports access to new regulations with polling numbers showcasing the need for change including, 78% of Canadians polled support or somewhat support a government that legalized psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy to improve the quality of life for terminally ill patients.
The Psychedelic Association of Canada and other experts from across Canada have been meeting with Members of Parliament, senior government officials, representatives from all parties, and national stakeholders over the past 10 months and encountered unanimous support for access to psilocybin therapy with a palliative diagnosis.
With public support at an all-time high, we are focusing on introducing evidence-informed regulations to officials at Health Canada. We come together with a group of key experts including palliative care professionals, therapists, MDs, non-profit supports, industry, medical and legal experts to communicate, petition, and deliver a regulatory framework that will transform the lives of Canadians who deserve access to medicine that can help them overcome their most debilitating mental anxieties.
Work with us, lend your support and help us create a new path for legal psilocybin-assisted therapy in Canada. #canadasupports
