Spreading Knowledge

uniMIND provides a platform for university students and senior academics worldwide to come together and share their thoughts, insights, and criticisms regarding  a number of fields related to  altered states of consciousness and psychedelics. This process not only enables academia to grow, it also inspires and informs the next generation of researchers and practitioners. 


uniMIND sets up academic discussion groups composed of students and senior academics from a wide range of levels and backgrounds. These groups then meet with the shared goal of engaging in a critical discourse on altered states of consciousness and psychedelics. The discussion revolves around their application in basic and clinical research, the brain sciences, philosophy, and human development. It can be the starting point for writing a bachelors, masters, or doctoral thesis; for collaboration and project application and  for building evidence-based and vivid communities.

uniMIND groups meet regularly at a convenient location. Each weeks speaker presents a publication/topic/project per meeting using e.g. slides, handouts, or an oral presentation. Topics may cover any discipline of psychedelic science, from psychotherapy and neuroscience to anthropology and the social sciences. The topic will be shared prior to the meeting to allow the rest of the group to prepare.

Participate or host!

With a number of uniMIND groups already in place, there may even be one at your own location! Check out the list below for details as well as contact information. Membership of the MIND Foundation is not required for attendance, so feel free to reach out to the organizers if you would like to participate in their meetings. 

If you want to start a uniMIND group yourself, please fill out the contact survey below and we will help you get started. It is necessary for all local group organizers to have an active MIND membership.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
