Join us for the most comprehensive conference so far on the intersection of psychedelics, religion and spirituality!

Religion and Psychedelics Forum

April 22nd-24th, 2022

Chacruna Institute is renowned for its annual conferences exploring cutting-edge topics regarding psychedelic culture, discussing issues that are absent from the mainstream media conversation. The Religion and Psychedelics Forum will feature three days of panels exploring the role psychedelics have played in the history of religion and spirituality across the world, and the key role that religion now plays in the modern psychedelic renaissance. We’ll take a multidisciplinary and intercultural approach to these issues, examining important questions around mystical experience, Indigenous spirituality, religious freedom and drug policy, and how psychedelics intersect with both Eastern and Western religious traditions.

To get a feeling of the event’s incredible content, check out these short promotional videos featuring our speakers:
