The Ayahuasca Symposium is a holistic event, integrating the academic and spiritual worlds. It’s aim is to provide you with a thorough introduction to the sacred Amazonian plant medicine ayahuasca, and the inspiring community that has emerged around it.
The full-day program incorporates 9 speakers, a sacred ayahuasca ceremonial music concert with 6 acoustic musicians plus a DJ Set, a Palo Santo & Mapacho smudging ceremony, a Cacao ceremony, and plenty of time for community connection.
Vegan Lunch and Dinner available onsite from Gaia Pulses for a small cost.
At a time when ayahuasca ceremonies have become popular, but are still misunderstood and legally-persecuted spiritual practices, The Psychedelic Society intends to provide a balanced approach to the facts, issues and best practices surrounding this ancient plant-based medicine. Curated by psychedelic luminary, Benjamin Mudge, this event welcomes a line-up of internationally reputable speakers and soulful musicians.
