Talk:

Consciousness Medicine; a vision for the future of humanity

Talk date & time:
Saturday 17:00-18:00

Abstract:

The current conversation on consciousness, psychedelics, and psychology is in the stage of reaching broadly into our society.

The challenge is to integrate theories about human potential and direct experiences of expanded states of consciousness.

Consciousness medicine aims at addressing not only the need of healing individuals by resolving past trauma and psychological wounds resulting in depression, anxiety, addiction, but also to support human growth through expansion of consciousness.

Consciousness medicine weaves skills and techniques from indigenous traditions and Western Psychology to create a solid framework for these experiences of expanded states, thus bringing a new hope of solidarity and ecological balance for a better future of humanity on this planet.
