Ecopsychedelic Practices for Addressing Eco/Social Crises

Monday June 19, 2023 9:00am – 1:00pm MDT

Additional registration fee applies.

In the face of our ecological (global climate chaos, sixth mass extinction, etc.) and social crises (global resurgence of fascism, increasing military tensions and new wars, etc.), finding ways to connect with nature, address issues of environmental justice and ecoanxiety/trauma, and foster novel solutions to our problems is more important than ever. Ecopsychedelics offer a unique opportunity to do all three. This workshop will explore the intersection of ecopsychology and psychedelics through theory as well as practices that are designed to overcome the disconnections between an individual and their true self, other humans, the more-than-human world, and the ground of Being. By exploring the intersection between ecology, justice, psychology, and psychedelics, humanity may find new ways to tackle some of the most pressing challenges facing our planet today. With the psychedelic resurgence underway, the possibility of using these medicines in both clinical and environmental contexts with the intention of deepening individual connection to the planet, and our collective liberation, can help people develop a fuller understanding of the importance of working together to preserve and honor our planet by building just and sustainable societies.

Format: The session will include the following elements:

  • Practice: Participants will be guided through a number of exercises designed to help them connect with nature and foster empathy for the natural world. They will also have the opportunity to share their experiences and learn from others in the group.
  • Lecture: We will discuss the latest research and theories on nature and psychedelic use and their potential to help us heal our relationship with nature and transform unjust and unsustainable systems. A panel of practitioners will also be on hand to share their insights and answer questions.
  • Small Group Discussion: In one break out session, attendees will share their thoughts and experiences about how psychedelics can help us connect with nature on a deeper level. Another session will discuss how ecopsychedelics can be used to help address the global climate crisis, injustices, as well as other pressing environmental and social challenges.
