Psychedelic Care: Transforming the Death and Dying Journey

The safe use of psychedelics can transform the way we experience the death and dying process. This presentation is designed for anyone interested in how psychedelics can benefit those faced with a life-threatening or terminal diagnosis. We explore how psilocybin, ketamine, and MDMA, as the most widely available and researched psychedelics, have helped thousands of people find peace and equanimity in their death and dying process. We cover the research, health considerations, how to work with them at end of life, and share a number of real-life stories which really explains why this work is so important.
