Bridging Indigenous Wisdom and Western Psychotherapy with Francoise Bourzat (USA).
In recent years, research with psychedelics has been widely talked about and the use of such compounds promise efficient treatments of various mental pathologies. In this climate of moving forward with this medical use of psychedelics, how are ancient traditions anchored in the use of sacred plants and fungi considered? How is it possible to cultivate reciprocity, honoring these traditions, cultures, people while integrating the value of their potency in our Western industrialized world? How are these rituals handled in their own traditions and how do we replicate them without cultural misappropriation? The risk of recapitulating a colonialist attitude is present. Yet, once connected with lineages and traditional uses of these sacred substances, our modern world can feel the support and permission to translate their ceremonies.

Time: 12pm – 1:15pm (incl Q&A) (AEST)
