MMA FREE Webinar Series: Shamanism: The Myth of Eden, Psychedelics, and Shame – Our Original Wound

With Dr Alberto Villoldo (USA)

Date: Wed 09 March 2022 @ 1:00pm
Location: Online

We have the only mythology (the Western Mythology) in the world where we were cast out of paradise. This is the foundation myth of Western  Society and Religion, and is buried deep in our psyches. We are outcasts, we don’t belong. We are ashamed.

The West is in need of a new myth. Shamanic mythologies have much to offer us today, including a way back to Eden, to the original garden that we can return to as its stewards.  But first we must heal our original wound, repair our relationship with the mythic serpent, and take our rightful place again under the tree of wisdom.

BioForum – Our Mental Health Epidemic: The Need for Innovation in Treatment

With Tania de Jong AM, Peter Hunt AM, Dr Paul MacLeman and Professor Arthur Christopoulos

Date: Wed 04 August 2021 @ 4:00pm
Location: Online

Despite an ever-increasing number of Australians experiencing debilitating mental illnesses, there has been little innovation in mental health treatment options over the last 5 decades.

With a new approach desperately needed, attention is now being paid to the potential role of psychedelic medicines as aides to psychotherapy for a wide array of conditions, including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and addiction. The Australian Government has recently demonstrated its support of these breakthrough therapies with a $15 million grant to kick start clinical trials.

This keynote session will discuss the science and data around psychedelic medicines and the exciting work that is currently being done in this space. We will examine the evidence for psychedelic-assisted therapy, investigate its potential applications, and learn about pre-clinical research and animal models currently being developed in Victoria. You will also learn about how the current policy and regulatory environment affects the work.
