Psychedelic Healing Summit 2023

Psychedelic Healing Summit 2023

As recent clinical studies have shown, psychedelic medicines have high levels of efficacy when paired with treatments like therapy in treating depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), addiction, and a range of other challenges.

While psychedelic healing is an emerging frontier of modern Western mental health and wellness, it has been an integral part of many Indigenous cultures worldwide for thousands of years, which have used psychedelics to receive wisdom and offer healing to their communities.

Many people worldwide are exploring bridging therapeutic modalities and treatments with expanded states of consciousness to clear shame and heal personal, ancestral, and collective trauma.

The Psychedelic Healing Summit is more than just the latest clinical research — this is a 5-day experiential journey into the wisdom, intelligence, and embodiment of psychedelics and plant medicine.

Psychedelic Healing Is Becoming Mainstream

This Psychedelic Healing Summit (free!) illuminates the history, scientific research, and therapeutic integration processes of psychedelic medicine with sacred music and ceremonies, comes during an opportune time to positively impact our global mental health crisis.

The pandemic pushed rates of anxiety and depression four times higher in the U.S. alone, and many people around the world are struggling through grief, loss, and isolation. Use of anti-anxiety prescription drugs spiked more than 30% over the past two years, along with similar bumps in anti-depression and sleep aid prescriptions.

But an increasingly large market is seeking help outside the pharmaceutical industry, looking for relief from anxiety, depression, and trauma along with a connection to a higher purpose. Enter psychedelics, a movement that’s rapidly becoming mainstream thanks in part to:

  • Major press outlets sanctioning the movement (“Psilocybin and MDMA are poised to be the hottest new therapeutics since Prozac,” New York Times) and “Psychedelic frees up depressed brain,” BBC)
  • Prestigious medical research institutions like Johns Hopkins University and Yale reporting that psilocybin creates positive changes in moods, attitudes, and behavior when it comes to depression, anxiety, and addiction.

Psychedelics are now entering the mainstream as a method to address stress, burnout, anxiety, depression — as well as expand consciousness and cultivate inner peace.

Frequently Asked Questions About Psychedelic Healing

What is psychedelic healing?

Psychedelic healing is viewed from two distinctly related, yet different perspectives. Medically speaking, it is also known as psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, or PAP. This is a form of psychiatric treatment in which a psychedelic drug is consumed as part of a psychotherapeutic procedure. Spiritually speaking, for hundreds of years, numerous civilizations have employed hallucinogenic drugs in holistic medical and spiritual traditions. In both cases, a trained professional supports the healing journey.

What are the most frequently psychedelics used for healing?

While there are many options to choose from, the most commonly used today are: ayuhuasca, LSD, psilocybin, ketamine, and MDMA (aka ecstacy).

How do you take psychedelics for healing?

Legal psychedelics should only be used under the guidance of a trained professional. At present, there is no standardized administration for psychedelics. Generally, However, there are a few common guidelines that practitioners follow:

  • Use of a low to moderate dosage of a psychedelic substance
  • Professional monitoring throughout the hallucinogenic experience
  • Using one to two weeks between sessions to retake the psychedelic dosage
  • Approach it with a sense of calm and ease

What is the best environment for taking psychedelics?

Both “set” and “setting” are essential factors for an optimal healing experience. The set refers to your mindset, emotions, moods, intentions, and expectations. That's about who you are going into the experience. The setting should be a place that feels relaxing, safe, and supportive. The objective is to feel at ease with both the therapist and the environment in which the session will occur.

What does it mean to “integrate” psychedelics?

Psychedelic healing sessions are intended to assist the person in processing, making sense of, and finding meaning in their psychedelic experience. Therefore, after a session it's important to allow adequate time for the experience to deepen both into the conscious and unconscious minds. Having a trained professional helps facilitate this part of the experience in positive, healthy, supportive ways.

What is microdosing?

Microdosing is a type of psychedelic healing that includes consuming very tiny, non-hallucinogenic dosages of psychedelic drugs. Proponents of micro-dosing argue that even these shallow doses can have positive health effects such as improving performance, increasing energy, and decreasing depression.

Is there any scientific evidence for the healing benefits of psychedelics?

Just a brief search for “MDMA PTSA” brings up a plethora of well-cited and often-quoted scholarly articles. Further digging into NIH and other medical databases shows that there's continued interest and study into clinical research and professional uses for psychedelics. This is likely due to the fact that the stigma behind psychedelics is continuing to fade over time.

What are the negative side effects of taking psychedelics?

While psychedelics can have powerful healing effects, they can also have side effect including, but not limited to:

  •         Changed perception of time
  •         Virtual illusions
  •         Perceptually distorted sensations
  •         Strong feelings or impressions
  •         Insecurity
  •         Viewing, listening or feeling things that one would not normally encounter

Not everybody will experience all, or any of those side effects. Each person is uniquely different, and this is another reason why psychedelics should only be taken under the guidance of a trained professional.

Long-term, heavy, recreational psychedelic use has been associated long-term psychosis, manifesting as visual abnormalities, flashbacks, erratic thinking, paranoia, anxiety, and mood swings. They can also produce hallucinogen persistent perception disorder (HPPD), characterized by severe hallucinations and visual abnormalities.

While these side effects can be serious, and do sound scary, they are extremely unlikely when using psychedelics specifically for healing while under the guidance of a trained professional.

Do psychedelics make you more spiritual?

Some people claim to experience mystical or spiritual experiences after using psychedelic drugs. They may express sentiments of serenity, pleasure, oneness, or empathy, and feeling connected to the Universal Oneness that connects us all.

Can psychedelics be used instead of anti-depressants?

First of all, never change your medical dosages unless you have discussed it with your doctor. There may be adverse effects combining medications and psychedelics, so it's important to have full information, guidance, and support before making any changes.

That said, stress, melancholy, substance abuse, alcoholism, and PTSD have all been shown in studies to react well to psychedelic-assisted therapy. Here's a few areas of interest that have been studied, are being studied, and would benefit from further study:

  • Anxiety and mood disorders: Psychedelics offer potential mood advantages that might aid with depression therapy. A 2016 rigorous double-blind controlled study discovered that psilocybin medication significantly decreased worry and sadness in cancer patients.
  • Alcohol and drug use disorders: Early studies indicated that LSD might aid in the rehabilitation of drug use problems. Some newer data supports the notion that psychedelic therapy has promise as an addiction treatment.
  •  Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD): Research indicates that MDMA-assisted psychotherapy may be beneficial for the treatment of PTSD (PTSD), so much so, that in 2017 the FDA deemed it beneficial for PTSD symptoms and called it a “breakthrough therapy.”
