Limited Capacity seats available

How can we operate from a place of possibility in a world full of existential fear? Our rapidly changing world is always presenting new obstacles, demanding changes in the ways we respond. This multidisciplinary panel will explore the role of expanding our consciousness in shifting how we relate to each other and the natural world. How can art, science, and plants help us vision new ways forward grounded in collective action and healing? From the often depressing front lines of climate science and mental health, we will hear from panelists whose unique research is yielding incredibly promising results, including removing carbon from the atmosphere and effectively treating PTSD, addiction, and depression with psychedelic therapy and cannabis. Indigenous traditions around the globe have long used ceremony, music, dance, and sacred plants to align and to heal community. How can we learn, and create the physical and psychological spaces to vision possibility from a place of balance?
