Bill Richards – Sacred Knowledge: Just Because You’re Mortal Is No Reason To Be Depressed
This presentation focuses on the positive correlation between insightful personal, visionary and mystical forms of consciousness facilitated by psilocybin and significant and enduring reductions in depression and anxiety, coupled with reported increases in quality of life. The probable application of this intervention in palliative and hospice care settings in the near future is discussed, including the need for training persons to implement it safely and effectively. Attention is paid to the importance of set and setting, the definition of visionary and mystical states, and reflections on why the memory of such psychedelic experiences may be so therapeutically effective.
