April 15-18, 2010 • San Jose, California
Psychedelic Science brought together international experts to present on psychedelic research and psychedelic psychotherapy topics for the largest conference dedicated solely to psychedelics in the U.S. in 17 years. There were three full days of programming with concurrent tracks exploring clinical and spiritual applications, issues relevant to healthcare professionals, and social and cultural issues surrounding the therapeutic and recreational uses of psychedelics.
This conference was a huge success. We brought researchers, medical doctors, psychologists, other medical and health professionals, and people with a general interest in psychedelics from around the globe to our sold out event. If you missed it, we are planning to have another conference in a few years. We encourage you to sign up for MAPS’ free email updatesand we invite you to join us in our research by becoming a MAPS member.
