Mission:

We provide public education and cultural understanding 
about psychedelic plant medicines and promote 
a bridge between the ceremonial use of 
sacred plants and psychedelic science.

Vision:

We envision a world where plant medicines and other psychedelics are preserved, protected, and valued as part of our cultural identity and integrated into our social, legal and health care systems.
