MAPS Psychedelic Science Conference

April 26th, 2010

I recently had the good fortune of attending and displaying artwork at the MAPS Psychedelic Science in the 21 Century Conference, held in San Jose, CA. MAPS (Multidiciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies) is “a membership-based, IRS-approved 501 (c) (3) non-profit research and educational organization. [They] assist scientists to design, fund, obtain approval for and report on studies into the risks and benefits of MDMA, psychedelic drugs and marijuana. MAPS’ mission is to sponsor scientific research designed to develop psychedelics and marijuana into FDA-approved prescription medicines, and to educate the public honestly about the risks and benefits of these drugs.”

The conference was a meeting of many brilliant minds including Sasha Shulgin, discoverer of MDMA, Dr. Stanislav Grof, founder of transpersonal psychology and an early pioneer in LSD psychotherapy, Dr. Ralph Metzner, artists Alex and Allyson Grey, Dr. Andrew Weil and many others. I met some really wonderful and inspiring people and listened to some rather insightful talks regarding the conscious use of psychedelics for the purpose of healing and growth.

For more on the conference and to see some of the truly positive things that the media has had to say on this, check out some of the links below.
