2024 Canadian Psychedelic Summit
With Hollyhock Leadership Institute, Kim Haxton and Orane Cheung
July 17 - 21, 2024
Pre-register for the 2024 Canadian Psychedelic Summit and secure your spot at the 3rd annual gathering on Cortes Island.
What to Expect
Led by facilitator and ceremonial practitioner Kim Haxton, our time together will center the embodied knowledge of Indigenous peoples, creating space for ceremony, storytelling, and connection with ourselves, one another, and the natural world. With these foundations in place, we will lean into tough conversations facing the psychedelic landscape, creating a movement for the future.
The Canadian Psychedelic Summit offers five days of inspiring talks, structured group and breakout sessions, as well as unstructured time for socializing, rest, and community connection. This three-year project will meld in-person gatherings with continued engagement of cohorts of those attending.
Over five days, our curated community of participants will:
- Create connections and develop relationships across diverse sectors and perspectives
- Contemplate a short and long-term vision for psychedelics in Canada, leaning into challenging conversations with trust and goodwill
- Create shared agreements about how we wish to shape the psychedelic industry, with equity at its core
Who Should Attend
This interdisciplinary Summit welcomes individuals from the psychedelic community as a whole. We truly want this to be an opportunity where voices from a wide range of stakeholder groups are present to help bring to life a long-term vision for psychedelics in Canada that is representative of all Canadians.
We invite people working across research, not-for-profit, public health, underground, market, government and other communities to bring their valuable experience and knowledge to this interdisciplinary space.
With a key outcome to shape a more equitable field, we encourage in particular participants from equity-denied communities to attend, including folks who identify as BIPOC, LGBTQ2S+, neurodiverse, physically disabled, and those seeking economic equity. Scholarships are available to support participation.
Hollyhock ensures gatherings and events are accessible and valuable to diverse communities. We welcome and encourage applicants who will bring diversity to the Summit, including but not limited to diversity of gender, race, ability, sexual orientation, and class. We know that important, exciting, and innovative work is happening on the margins.
Given the limited number of spots available to attend in person, participation is by application, which will be curated by the Core Team who will review applications to reflect the most diverse and representative community possible. We encourage you to apply soon to be considered for early admission; applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and space is limited!
We are inviting a limited number of organizations to join as Sponsors of the event. As a sponsor of the Canadian Psychedelic Summit, you are actively building a vision for psychedelics in Canada founded on principles of decolonization, inclusion, justice, equity, human rights, and public health.
