1. Beckley Foundation, Opening Talk

    Amanda Feilding founded the Beckley Foundation in 1998 with the purpose of investigating the neurophysiological changes underlying altered states of consciousness in order to expand our understanding of consciousness, and how to use these compounds to the benefit of the individual and society. The second aim of the Beckley Foundation is to work towards the rationalization of international drug policies, which currently are ineffective and harmful, and also obstruct scientific research into the potential benefits of psychoactive substances.

    Speaker: Amanda Feilding - "Evolving Consciousness"

    Amanda Feilding is director and founder of the Beckley Foundation, which researches consciousness from an interdisciplinary perspective.
