Event Details

Mapping the Mind with Mushrooms returns to Toronto! This annual conference aims to bring the ongoing psychedelic research renaissance to the general public. Over the last 20 years, psilocybin, LSD, MDMA and more have returned to scientific labratories and have been informing neuroscience and therapeutic practice at an unprecedented rate. Hosted at the University of Toronto Earth Science Centre, we will bring together psychologists, philosophers and mycologists to address the current findings and implications of psychedelic mushrooms and more. Topics will include:


- The history of magic mushroom research

- Insight and wisdom

- Hallucinations and the nature of perception

- MDMA assisted psychotherapy

- Mystical Experiences


This event is in affiliation with the 920coalition; a network of indiviuals and groups that host events to raise awareness of the benefits and uses for ‘magic’ mushrooms every September 20th. Be a part of the movement! Profits made from this event will be donated to research groups that fund research into psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy. Join us to learn, connect to the community, and make magic happen!
