Talk Title: Zendo Project Psychedelic Peer Support: Celebrating 10 Years On Playa!

What can psychedelic peer support teach us about individual and collective healing? How does peer support provide a model for community wellness? This year is the 10th anniversary of the MAPS Zendo Project. Sara and Ryan will reflect on what the Zendo Project community has learned through serving over 6,000 guests and training thousands of individuals and volunteers and how these teachings are applicable to the psychedelic space and beyond.
