Featuring Sara Reed in conversation with Ismail Ali
4th and final part of our Psychedelic Community & Racial Justice series
How do we make psychedelic healing accessible to people of color and marginalized communities in an ethical way? What are the blind spots in protocols designed by white-only practitioners? What are the pros and cons of psychedelic medicalization? To what extent is working within the system effective and transformative vs playing into harmful structures?
