Stay Tuned for a series of upcoming workshops as of spring 2017!

BEYOND PSYCHEDELICS: THE JOURNEY HOME – a one-day integration group and retreat, Vancouver Island, BC, April 8, 2017.

FORUM UPDATES

With MAPS’ Psychedelic Science Conference scheduled in April 2017 this year, the organizers of the Psychedelic Psychotherapy Forum have decided to hold the next Forum in 2018. This year, we will focus our efforts on exploring the long-term organizational needs of the Forum, as well as developing retreats, workshops and training opportunities for counsellors, psychologists, psychiatrists, medical and other healing professionals.

We are presenting a Holotropic Breathwork event this fall, in Victoria, BC. Save the dates: Oct 13 evening & Oct 14 full day. More details will be provided shortly, with registration opening in March.

We are also pleased to hear that local/regional groups initiated from the last Forum are actively engaging in continued dialogues and cultivating community.

NEWS FLASH

MAPS Canada will be launching a crowdfunding campaign on April 17, 2017, to fund the MDMA assisted psychotherapy for PTSD study. We have completed our phase 2 of the research and will be starting phase 3 in the late spring. We anticipate that upon completion of phase 3 MDMA assisted psychotherapy will be legal in Canada and the USA and our current hurdle is to raise the funds to support this project.

Mark Haden, Executive Director, MAPS Canada, noted: “We have no corporate funding as no large pharmaceutical company will support this, so our goal is to be funded by the community of people who understand the healing potential of psychedelic medicine.” He added that he is currently looking for people who have large networks of contacts and are willing to spread the word when MAPS Canada hits the launch button in April.
