Chacruna Events produces high-quality in-person and virtual events exploring the most timely issues in the psychedelics and plant medicine world. Like with our Chronicles, our events highlight critical conversations about controversial and marginalized topics in the psychedelic ecosystem, and also promote diverse voices from women, Indigenous people, people of color and LGBTQI speakers. We create various types of events, including bi-weekly Community Forums featuring presentations and conversations from visionary thought leaders working at the forefront of psychedelic science, policy and culture. We also produce large-scale annual conferences that focus on cutting edge themes each year, from indigenous knowledge and sacred plants, to equity, diversion, inclusion and diversity, to women and queer issues, to questions around decriminalization, legalization and commodification. Further, we curate special panels for other organizations featuring important speakers from our community to share their views and/or research on specific issues and bring in new perspectives to the discussions that are often lacking. Finally, we have been producing a series of meta reflections on the scope and composition of psychedelic conferences, especially concerning, for example, the emergent market for psychedelic conferences (or “profitdelic” conferences) and the inclusion of indigenous people.
