World Ayahuasca Conference 2019

May 31 – June 2 , 2019 | Girona, Spain

AYA2019 will be more than a conference. It will be the largest event ever held about ayahuasca, one where our diverse community will come together to plant the seeds for a better future. We invite you to join us in beautiful, historic Girona to celebrate the diversity of ayahuasca cultures, practices, art, film, and research.

Chris will present:

Ayahuasca Sustainability from Vine to Cup: In this overview of findings from the Medicine Hunter Ayahuasca Sustainability Field Report, the first-ever journal published field study of ayahuasca sustainability, we’ll explore the impact of ayahuasca’s popularity on indigenous communities, shamanism, populations of ayahuasca plants, and pasajeros who seek ayahuasca for healing. KEYNOTE (ENGLISH), Saturday, June 1st, 1 12.20 - 12.50, Hall 1

The First Published Ayahuasca Sustainability Field Report: In this deeper dive into the Medicine Hunter Ayahuasca Sustainability Field Report, we’ll examine the harvesting, transport, preparation, recipes, sale and administration of ayahuasca in Peru’s Loreto and Ucayali provinces. Featuring interviews, rare photographs and data gathered from shamans, collectors, traders, and others in the ayahuasca scene, this is new information shared at a conference for the very first time. WORKSHOP (ENGLISH) Saturday, June 1st, 15.30 - 17.45, Hall 3

The Spirit Plant Medicine Conference

First weekend in November, 2019 | University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, BC, Canada

Psychedelic Sermon: Before the advent of organized religions, people of most cultures employed plants and fungi, so-called plants of the gods, to encounter spirit directly, to effect profound healing, and to divine knowledge by journeying in the spirit landscape. In ceremonial and intentional ways, this engagement afforded a direct experience of mystical consciousness without intermediaries. The Psychedelic Sermon series delivers messages of spirit, without isms, ologies and osophies, offering insights into intentional and radically transformative engagement with the great psychedelics. This year’s Psychedelic Sermon is “A Psychedelic Dharma.”
