Upcoming Events


Safe and legal contexts for the psychedelic experience. Enhancing the potentials for patients & healthy humans.


Supporting and conducting psychedelic studies – across medicine and psychology, philosophy and neuroscience, natural and social sciences.

What members do


We organize in committees with volunteers and a few employed colleagues. 
Many of us are experts in one or more fields of practice or research closely related to psychedelic science: We publish. We write grant applications.
We train psychotherapists, prevention workforce, and researchers. Bridging the gap between the ivory tower and social practice is our goal.
Transdisciplinarity is our unique feature. 
In speaking to the press and TV we try to change wrong and misinformed images of the psychedelic experience. 
Our current challenge is fundraising.

  • Science committee

    Discuss, write grants and papers, find supervisors or study participants. Network.

  • Therapy & Development committee

    Develop new approaches for depression, trauma, alcoholism and other hard to treat diagnoses. Build ASC trainings and meet colleagues for case reflexion.

  • Prevention and Harm Reduction Committee

    Develop, practice and evaluate the Integration Circle Series, train and practice harm reduction at festivals and other contexts.

  • Internal committees

    Public Relations, CI, Technical, Ethics, Members or Fundraising Committee. Get websites, facebook, twitter and YouTube going. Work with volunteers, interns and employed staff.

I think, that the time is ripe for a new handling of altered states of consciousness and psychoactive substances: based on research and common sense – not on taboos, anxiety and horror stories.

I support Psychedelic Science because it will contribute to better understanding the psychedelic experience, and for utilizing its potential sustainably for individuals and society.

I support MIND, because it is time to question boundaries that block a new handling of maladies. Adequate and cutting-edge research is needed with approved scientific methods.

This research helps to relieve suffering, facilitates the development of new therapies, and allows for precious explorations into the fabric of life.

I Support MIND, because societal change can only develop by contextualization, examination, and scrutinizing of social norms.

I support MIND, because researchers and therapists should be able to explore new forms of therapy – without being stigmatized.
