Looking beyond the current resurgence in psychedelic studies about healing specific conditions, we will explore the restoration of basic freedoms: to experience one’s connection to the Divine, to explore dimensions of oneself that can lead to healing and re-connection to the natural world, and the right to use the best tools available to solve scientific and technical problems. We will review some ”best practices”: current entheogenic trainings, as well as how to use psychedelics as tools for physicists, mathematicians, architects, etc. We will present preliminary research findings on micro-doses that may act as all chakra enhancers and ongoing research studies including those done at prior Horizon and other psychedelic conferences. Members at this conference will have the chance to participate in the current national user survey project.
