Chacruna produces new large-scale, in-person or virtual conferences each year, focusing on cutting-edge themes that are largely absent from the mainstream psychedelic conversation. These include diverse subjects such as indigenous knowledge and sacred plants, diversity, equity and inclusion, women and queer issues, and questions around decriminalization, legalization, mainstreaming and commodification. Our next conference will be Sacred Plants in the Americas II on April 23-25 2021, and will focus on the themes of indigenous reciprocity and the globalization of plant medicines.
