“It is imperative for indigenous traditional ecological knowledge & practices (TEK) to play an integral role in the fight to protect our sacred global biome.
(...) which has been so successful that, although indigenous lands account for less than 22 percent of the world’s land area, their traditional territories are home to approx 80% of the world’s biodiversity.
And the biodiversity of which, as the UN report shows, is declining at a significantly slower rate than elsewhere, demonstrating their success as stewards of their natural environment...”

"The frequency of lifetime psychedelic use was positively correlated with nature relatedness at baseline.
Nature connection or relatedness is an interesting thing to look at scientifically as it is strongly correlated with a broad range of measures of psychological wellbeing, while also being a strong predictor of pro-environmental behaviour. So it’s an interesting and topical area given the burgeoning, concurrent mental health and ecological crises we are facing, with there being a recognised lack of effective interventions for reducing people’s environmentally destructive behaviour."

“The causes of the [planetary] crisis are political, economic, legal and cultural systemic issues but underneath that are issues of human trauma, powerlessness, scarcity and separation.
The system resides within us and the psychedelic medicines are opportunities to help us shift our consciousness...”

Our Contribution to Scientific Action Research on Psychoactivity
Some of the world's leading universities have ventured into research on psychoactive technologies and culture. Their astonishing findings underpin the potential of psychedelics as a medicine to cure various physical, emotional and mental problems and, further, as a state shifting technology that enables humans to expand their own embodied mental capabilities.
To introduce action research on psychoactivity into areas that concretely address the ongoing complex planetary challenges, PSYx is incubating a global-first Centre for PsychoActive Leadership, Innovation and (Global) Systems, multi-located at various of the world’s leading universities and other research hubs. The objective is to systematically derive action research, as well as develop and distribute the optimal ways in which PsychoActive Technologies may be applied to optimise global risks & opportunities.
