Psychedelics open us to the prospect of death as part of our common humanity and consciousness. Research from NYU, Johns Hopkins and UCLA have consistently shown that psilocybin, not just reduced the anxiety and depression associated with the fear of dying in cancer patients, but it also brought feelings of unity and peace and acceptance to death and dying.
This panel will bring together the End-of-Life Doula who led the development of two end-of-life retreat and training programs for Diaspora Psychedelic Society, a psychedelic trained psychotherapist with 30 years' experience as a hospice social worker and cancer survivor who participated in an MDMA study for individuals with life-threatening illnesses, and a Psychedelics Today colleague who was transformed through psychedelics after the death of her father.
Join them in an engaging panel discussion to talk about the death and dying process, the role of an End-of-Life Doula in this process, how and why psychedelics are powerful sources for healing in those with terminal diagnoses, and how you can begin to shift your thinking about death and dying. They each will share their personal stories with psychedelics and death which are moving testimonials to the potency of psychedelics for this, the most important, part of one's life journey.
