The 2018 Forum (Oct 11 – 12) took place at Westin Bear Mountain Resort, while the post-forum weekend workshops  (Oct 13 – 14) venues were the Victoria Conference Centre and James Bay Athletic Centre in downtown Victoria.



Psychedelic Psychotherapy Forum 2018: The Unfolding Promise held its two full forum days (Oct 11 and Oct 12) of presentations, panels, and exchanges/dialogues, at Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort and Spa, in the foothills just west of Victoria, BC (30 minutes drive from downtown Victoria).  The resort can provide the space, catering and amenities to support this event. The resort village offers outdoor trails for walking and biking, outdoor heated pools, golfing, spa services, gym, and more.

The 2018 Forum’s block of standard rooms based on the group rate of CAD160++ have been used up. The group rate was CAD160++ per standard room (with two queen beds), with an additional daily resort fee of CAD25 which covers amenities including internet, parking, and access to some outdoor activities in the village. If you’ve booked your room on this group rate and want to add extra nights before or after the Forum, or if you want to secure accommodation based on the next best rates, please contact the hotel at Alternatively, late registrants can try to book through travel websites.

ACCOMMODATION & RIDE SHARE: The hotel rooms at the resort are quite large, normally with two queen beds, to enable room sharing with your network of friends who may be attending as well. We also encourage carpooling/ride sharing to cultivate community and to reduce some of your travel costs.

GETTING TO THE RESORT: The resort is about a 30-minute drive from downtown Victoria.
