We’ll also learn from the experts about the risks and benefits of psychedelics such as MDMA, LSD, psilocybin, ketamine, and ayahuasca for mental health and personal growth, and the powerful role this work is playing in policy, law, and culture. This event is a 600 person single-track, single-stage summit, featuring presentations from MAPS Founder Rick Doblin, Ph.D., mycologist Paul Stamets, addiction expert Dr. Carl Hart, and a live interview with Tim Ferriss and Marcela Ot’alora.

Paul Stamets


Speaker, Author, Mycologist, Medical Researcher, and Entrepreneur

Paul Stamets, speaker, author, mycologist, medical researcher, and entrepreneur, is considered an intellectual and industry leader in fungi: habitat, medicinal use, and production. He lectures extensively to deepen the understanding and respect for the organisms that literally exist under every footstep taken on this path of life. His presentations cover a range of mushroom species and research showing how mushrooms can help the health of people and planet. His central premise is that habitats have immune systems, just like people, and mushrooms are cellular bridges between the two. Our close evolutionary relationship to fungi can be the basis for novel pairings in the microbiome that lead to greater sustainability and immune enhancement.

Paul’s philosophy is that “MycoDiversity is BioSecurity.” He sees the ancient Old Growth forests of the Pacific Northwest as a resource of incalculable value, especially in terms of its fungal genome. A dedicated hiker and explorer, his passion is to preserve and protect as many ancestral strains of mushrooms as possible from these pristine woodlands. His research is considered breakthrough by thought leaders for creating a paradigm shift for helping ecosystems worldwide.

Paul is the author of six books (including Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save The World, Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms, and Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World), he has discovered and named numerous new species of psilocybin mushrooms, and is the founder and owner of Fungi Perfecti, LLC, makers of the Host Defense Mushrooms supplement line.

Betty Aldworth


Executive Director of Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP)

Betty Aldworth is the Executive Director of Students for Sensible Drug Policy where she supports students and young people united to build a more sensible future through drug policies rooted in safety, justice, and education. Since joining the team in 2014, she has led the organization through its most substantial growth period: SSDP’s member base and campuses have doubled, global presence has quadrupled, and as a result the policy change and education efforts members are leading have grown immeasurably.

From 2009 until 2014, Betty specialized in community outreach, public relations, advocacy, and policy reform as a consultant to or staffer for cannabis-related businesses and nonprofit organizations. She served as spokesperson and advocacy director for Colorado’s successful 2012 Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, the collaborative committee responsible for legalizing, taxing and regulating marijuana for adults in Colorado and was the Deputy Director of the National Cannabis Industry Association in 2013, the organization’s fastest year of growth. Prior to her work in marijuana policy and medical cannabis, she was a volunteer leadership professional with some of Denver’s most well-respected nonprofit organizations, ultimately leading a team of 4,000 volunteers who contributed over 40,000 hours of service annually.

Betty’s early activism focused on anti-war, anti-apartheid, and environmental issues. Her fondest childhood memories include attending an annual Easter peace rally at the local nuclear testing facility, and she organized her first action at 13, a cleanup day at the local lake attended only by Betty and her mom. That action informed her commitment to “failing forward,” an approach which demands taking smart, managed risks and learning everything you can from them whether or not the result is a “success”. As an adult her activism centered around anti-war efforts; civic engagement; intersectional womens’ issues; and racial, economic, and social justice. Today, her primary issues of concern are ending mass incarceration, engaging citizens in the political process, and building economic justice; she understands that ending the War on Drugs is necessary but insufficient to replace the racist cycle of poverty and criminalization which continue to drive inequality and human rights abuses.

Betty lived and audited coursework at Deep Springs College, a small but elite academic and ranching community isolated in central eastern California. She has completed coursework in philosophy and women’s studies at Metropolitan State University of Denver, and periodically flirts with the idea of returning to complete her degree but then, as has always been the case, becomes absorbed with compelling work.

Carlos Plazola, M.E.S.


Chair of Decriminalize Nature, CEO of The Haven Community

At an early age, Carlos became confounded by the concept of the infinite and the end-of-life after learning about the death of a loved one. This obsession with understanding the existential questions carried him through various forms of childhood trauma that profoundly impacted those around him. Based on his desire to understand the nature of life, Carlos self-funded his way through college, working long hours, while also attending UCLA -- where Carlos received a B.S. degree in biology and anthropology. Seeking further growth, Carlos lived with the Achuar of Ecuador for several months, where Carlos saw, first-hand, the destruction of the rainforest and impact on ancient traditions. Carlos then obtained a master of science degree in environmental science from Yale University. 

Upon graduating, Carlos sought the tools to create global change at the local level, organizing with the Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition, ACORN, and the Southwest Network for Environmental and Economic Justice. Carlos then spent 8 years learning the tools of political organizing, eventually becoming a field director for a mayoral campaign, and chief of staff to the Oakland Council President. His latest efforts since 2006 have been in manifesting creativity through the built environment, becoming a real estate developer, completing over 30 projects, including two mid-rises, and winning three Historic Preservation Awards, while also exploring and advancing methods of sustainable development. 

Upon the passing of his mother in 2013, Carlos realized that the healing from his childhood trauma was not complete, despite years of effort, and Carlos immersed himself in seeking greater understanding by studying physics and participating in yoga and meditation. While these were helpful, they failed to reveal the answers Carlos sought. Carlos then engaged in two powerful and transformative journeys using psilocybin mushrooms and ayahuasca. These journeys finally provided him the answers to the existential questions he had sought his entire life and brought him the inner peace he sought. 

Due to the power of this experience, Carlos has become an advocate for the decriminalization of entheogenic plants and fungi in a just and equitable way, ensuring they become accessible to all communities, especially to low-income communities which experience the highest levels of life-inhibiting trauma. To support this intention, Carlos is currently building a financially self-sustaining healing center called The Haven Community, a co-living, co-working consciousness community in Oakland, CA.
