Mapping the Mind welcomes you back for our 6th annual conference!
We are an annual psychedelic science conference that aims to raise funds and awareness in support of psychedelic research in Canada. Proceeds from Mapping the Mind 2020 are being donated to MAPS Canada and will help fund studies into MDMA-assisted therapy for eating disorders and combining MDMA with Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD.
The Future of Psychedelic Science
From Michael Pollan’s How to Change Your Mind to The Goop Lab, psychedelics are transitioning from the shadow of the counterculture into mainstream consciousness. Recent studies (at Johns Hopkins, NYU, Imperial College, and others) have shown incredibly promising results using psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy to treat depression, PTSD, addictions, and improve well-being. Both psilocybin and MDMA-assisted psychotherapy have received FDA Breakthrough Therapy Designation, and psychedelics are on track to become legally available as prescription medicines within the next few years. On August 4th, 2020, Canada granted a special exemption to 4 patients seeking to access psilocybin therapy for cancer-related anxiety. A psychedelic future is on the horizon, but what does that mean?
This year, join us for a series of panel discussions that will delve into the future of psychedelic science. We’re bringing together some of the foremost experts in psychedelic science and therapy to share their wisdom, aspirations, and discuss the potential challenges and opportunities as we move into our psychedelic future. Each panel will consist of 60 minutes of a semi-structured discussion followed by 30 minutes of audience Q&A.
