Themed Shake the Tree: Seeds to Action, Psychedelic Psychotherapy Forum, scheduled Sept 29 – Oct 2, intends to visibly “shake the tree” — to open up possibilities for transforming health (especially mental health), and related professions. Through developing active, inclusive and cohesive communities with shared vision and practices, we can create positive change and solutions, and commit to investments in people, teams, and new infrastructures.

Ways We Educate & Build Community
Psychedelic Psychotherapy Forum is the longest running psychedelic conference of its kind in Canada, and is unique today in that it is crafted for and co-created with practitioners, supporting, working, and training, in the field of psychedelic-assisted therapy.
The Forum / Conference is an opportunity for everyone interested in the field of psychedelic-assisted therapy — including health providers, advocates, researchers, students, bodyworkers, traditional and/or holistic therapists — to come together to network, and to dialogue about learnings, opportunities, issues and challenges, models of healthcare, and standards of practice.
