Just got back from playing music at the Psychedelic Integration symposium at Esalen. It was inspiring to be involved in the conversation around the renaissance of psychedelics in modern Western society. (I say ‘in the West’ because native cultures all over the world have understood the power them for thousands of years). There’s a lot to unpack around the potential applications as well as the risks. I loved getting to meet so many of the experts. . These compounds hold great potential for mental health, spiritual practice, climate activism, creativity, the betterment of well people, dying well, and so much more. While I don’t think they’re a cure-all, it is clear that there are many ways they can help us. . There are people working hard behind the scenes to architect a world in which we all have safe access to these tools. If all goes as planned, there will be legal treatment centers, similar to a meditation retreat. Imagine a world where you could go to a safe, professional center heal trauma or explore your own consciousness. This is all happening in the underground now, but I look forward to the day that everyone has access. . Thank you to everyone who put this together and all of the work being done everywhere on this massive project. .
