This talk was part of the Transformations with Psychedelics symposium.
This Video is sponsored by the Beckley Foundation, which is a UK-based think-tank founded and directed by Amanda Feilding that, since its establishment in 1998, has been at the forefront of global drug policy reform and scientific research into the potential medical benefits of psychoactive substances, with a particular focus on cannabis and the psychedelics.
The Foundation’s Scientific Programme collaborates with leading experts and institutions on a wide range of projects investigating the neurophysiology, pharmacology and subjective effects of psychoactive substances. This pioneering research has shed much light on the mechanisms of action of these substances, their therapeutic potential and consciousness itself.
The Foundation’s Policy Programme has greatly influenced global drug policy reform. The Foundation had been responsible for organising a series of pivotal international seminars at the House of Lords, publishing over 40 much-cited books and reports, holding numerous meetings with thought-leaders, and advising other policy makers such as President Pérez Molina of Guatemala on drug policy reform.
