Hi Randy,

I just wanted to tell you again that I think you and the crew did a great job with the conference and can feel extremely proud of what you’ve accomplished.

Keep up the good work. Blessings and protection, Namaste, Leo

I attended the conference – what a great occasion! …The work you do means a lot to me personally. Thanks so much :).


Wow, the conference was amazing! Congratulations for putting together the most important conference on psychedelic science in human history.

It really feels like a cultural threshold has been reached and the world is really changing. Thanks for all the fantastic work that you’re doing!

Thank you Rick for your sincere dedication to this cause for sooooooo many years!! You are such an inspiration to me and the conference was absolutely amazing!! So much hard work done by you and the entire MAPS staff, I’m forever changed and humbled by you all!!! Blessings, thanks and praise!!!


Dear Rick,

Just a short note to thank you, your staff and everyone else involved for an amazing conference. I’m sure you’ve already heard this but I really got the feeling the con- ference could be the official “start” of the Psychedelic Renaissance. Let’s hope so anyway.

Many thanks again for a wonderful history-making event.

Best wishes, Sahajia S


In my 30 years of attending conferences, I have never been to one I enjoyed more than “Psychedelic Science in the 21st Century”. The diversity of presenters and their levels of expertise were outstanding, the level of interac- tion among all participants, and the absence of big egos was extremely refreshing and a tribute to MAPS and its mission/philosophy.

The staff were near impeccable in their demeanor and service to the attendees. You guys made me very proud to be a MAPS member, and your first try at a major conference will be remembered as a significant historical event in the history of alternative health care/human- centered medicine.

You worked your ass off, man… THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

Sincerely, Andy R.

I filled out the survey BUT I just wanted to say again personally what a great conference it was. The location was perfect and if you do it again I would have no hesitation registering AND staying at this hotel. I loved the fact that there was so much nature around and the spring plant-people were out and lovin’ us, too.

Congrats to you and the rest of the MAPS top-notch staff! Best,


The ever-widening ripples from the conference are just plain wonderful and I am so grateful to you and the rest of the team for giving so many of us a new lease of life – and a hell of a lot more to do.

Hi Rick,

Just wanted to say thank you for an amazing conference. It was pivotal for me in ways I can’t begin to explain….Thank you for having the will and the courage to lead us through the thick maze of red tape. We’re on our way!


Dear Randolph,

I wrote a (paper!) letter to Rick and the team to say thank you all so much for the great conference.

I was really impressed by the whole set-up. Thank you for all your hard work and expertise in bringing this subject into the 21st century. It really felt like there is a new groundswell of support from the mainstream media and medical profession – and that is largely due to MAPS.

Best Wishes, Ben

Thank you for all you do, Rick! The conference was incredible!


Thank you so much for what you do. I really enjoyed the MAPS conference, and never waste an opportunity to tell people of your important work. Thanks,

Thanks again to you and the amazing MAPS crew for San Jose.

It was hopeful and inspiring. (And hopefully the “first annual”!)
