The Next Steps Towards Enculturation of Psychedelic States

The fifth and final moderated discussion of INSIGHT 2019 will conclude the conference. It will be moderated by Steve Paulson (Executive Producer and Co-Founder of To the Best of Our Knowledge, Wisconsin Public Radio) and will include audience participation. What have we heard from the speakers and debates of INSIGHT 2019?Which controversies were sparked and what insights were developed both for the scientific system and larger society? The focus of the round table will be on concrete steps for the enculturation of psychedelic states into a Western, globalized culture. Which role does our general understanding of consciousness play in this? Is there a special role for mindfulness practices when it comes to finding a responsible place for the psychedelic state in culture? Modern societies differ radically from the traditional groups who use psychedelics in their ritual and healing systems. Today we have a higher degree of individuality, a larger number of worldviews and spiritual systems, as well as a diverting global drug control system that tackles the regulation of several hundred psychoactive substances – a situation never experienced before in the history of humankind. In addition to this, most countries have a developed medical system and the question arises if the psychedelic experience should be integrated or remain alien to these systems. What are the arguments for and against creating a legal space for psychedelics in society? Who should have access and who not? How would a future system of self-exploration and therapy look? Which controversies would it create?The final panel will take time to debate ideas related to the broader future and ethics of the psychedelic state in society.

The requirements for psychedelic therapists’ training is one of the most controversially discussed topics in the field. Which level of formal training does a psychedelic therapist need to go through before she/he can offer a psychedelic-assisted treatment, and to whom? All these questions constitute controversies that need to be debated and decided. But who should have a say in the regulation of the figure of psychedelic therapist? Do future psychedelic therapists have to be medical doctors or psychiatrists (since these are usually […]
