Beyond Psychedelics, Global Psychedelic Forum - June 21- 24 2018 - Prague, Czech Republic
Eleonora Molnar, Executive Director of WVC Canada, spoke at Beyond Psychedelics, Global Psychedelic Forum, held in Prague, Czech Republic on June 21- 24, 2018. Her presentation discussed the ethical dimensions of current psychedelic research and of future treatments, as psychedelics become a legal adjunct to psychotherapy. The Beyond Psychedelics conference reviewed the risks and addressed the beneficial potential of psychedelics and alternative consciousness technologies, and worked toward the creation of guidelines for beneficial safe use and harm reduction.
The aim of the conference was to provide a platform for global cooperation among people with a professional interest in psychedelics, and to facilitate the exchange of both scientific knowledge and real practical experience to create new synergies – at a global level and across a variety of disciplines.
The event encouraged innovative discussions on approaches to psychedelics and on the ambiguous position these substances still hold in the modern age. An in-depth review of current challenges associated with their use will be a key topic. These topics have been of interest to the WVC for some time. Therefore the WVC has previously developed a list of 20 Safety Tips For Participating In Ceremonies That Use Psychoactive Substances
