Psilocybin, the active compound in hallucinogenic mushrooms, is finally getting the recognition it deserves – thanks to groundbreaking studies at Johns Hopkins University and other research institutes. Study after study suggest its efficacy in the treatment of conditions including depression, PTSD, and addiction. As awareness of psilocybin permeates mainstream culture, big business is starting to invest, hopeful about profits to be gained from medicalization and pharmaceutical patents.
Additionally, ever-increasing numbers of people who are looking for healing, spiritual growth and peace of mind, find and use psilocybin with positive results. Countless others are curious to know what this natural medicine might offer them.
Despite growing interest, there hasn’t been a forum to support this global discussion wanting to happen – until now. Scheduled for fall 2019, the Mt. Tam Psilocybin Summit is a worldwide, online conference designed to connect people around the world with a brilliant, multi-disciplinary team of scientists, policy makers, ceremony leaders, healthcare providers, community organizers, and more! During four days of presentations, these experts share their deep wisdom and answer participants’ real-time questions. Topics include:
Best practices, safe use, and managing worst case scenarios
Policy, reclassification for medical use, and decriminalization efforts
Leading edge research on psilocybin and depression
Facilitating powerful experiences
Traditional culture, ritual, and practice of the Mazatec
The summit’s extensive programming on the Mazatec traditions of Mexico – a significant first in the modern Western world – offers a deeper look to these indigenous practitioners who’ve been working with this medicine for centuries and use them today in their healing work.
The summit is hosted by Tam Integration, a community organization that provides psychedelic integration events and spiritual support in Marin County and the rest of the Bay Area. Dedicated to crafting meaningful experiences and cultivating healthy psychedelic leadership, Tam Integration looks forward to welcoming thousands of people eager to immerse themselves in psilocybin research, magical practices, shamanic experiences, and cultural exploration – from those interested in the burgeoning science and policy intricacies related to decriminalization, to therapists exploring how psilocybin might affect their work in the future, to people whose lives have already been changed by psychedelics, and others looking for viable ways to heal themselves from conditions like depression and PTSD.
The Psilocybin Summit allows the mycelial network of psychedelic change makers to reach a worldwide audience, so anyone who would like to attend can not only learn from but also interact with presenters in real time in a welcoming, community environment.
Join the conference September 19-22. Presentations are free the first day.
