Psychedelic States in Basic Research, Therapy, and Human Development.

INSIGHT is the European education leader in practical and science-based psychedelic therapies and their cultural implementation. The MIND Foundation and its partners are excited to welcome the general public, psychiatrists and other physicians, psychotherapists, nurse practitioners, psychologists,  and other mental health professionals to Berlin. The four tracks of INSIGHT cover Treatment, Basic Research, Philosophy/Anthropology, and Implementation – where science meets clinical applications and the emerging psychedelic industry.

Join us and leading experts – both in Berlin and online – as we explore every step from science to implementation.

We look forward to seeing you at INSIGHT 2021!
