I don’t usually do personal updates on this blog, but since most of my writing is scattered elsewhere throughout the psychedelic community, it makes sense for this to be a bit of a hub for my informal thoughts, in addition to my favourite pieces of writing.
The big news is that I’ll be presenting a small talk at Breaking Convention this year – the first time I’ll be discussing a psychedelic topic at a conference. I’m excited about it, especially because the topic is Salvia, the first psychedelic I ever experienced, and a truly special plant. Hopefully the talk will be online afterwards, and I’ll share it here.
For the past two and a half years I’ve been working as the content manager for The Third Wave, an organisation that educates about psychedelics and promotes microdosing. Recent events have prompted the majority of the team to leave, including myself.
Here is the full statement from a few of us regarding the decision. It is followed by a personal statement from myself.
The Psychedelic Scientist is now live! Expect weekly updates summarising the most recent psychedelic research, with occasional commentaries about consciousness, psychedelics, drug policy or research ethics.
Feel free to leave a comment, all feedback is appreciated and will help develop the style of the blog.
Thanks for reading!
