Psychedelics are remarkable for their ability to reliably bring about so-called mystical/spiritual-type experiences, the hallmark of which is a sense of unity and interconnectedness of all things. Research has found that such unitive experiences can produce significant and sustained increases in Nature Relatedness, a measure associated with greater wellbeing and ecologically sustainable behaviour. Join this session to explore the role of psychedelics in the regeneration of ecosystems worldwide.

Stephen Reid is a co-operative technologist and cultural changemaker who has trained in the fields of physics, complexity science, software development, meditation, psychotherapy, plant medicine, conscious sexuality and political activism.

Previously, he was the youngest ever board member of Greenpeace UK, was selected as the Green Party parliamentary candidate for Totnes, co-founded the New Economics Foundation’s New Economy Organisers Network and worked as a technology consultant for organisations including the Labour Party, the Living Wage Foundation and 350.org.
