NOVEMBER 3 - 4, 2018


You are warmly - and enthusiastically - invited to participate in this adventure on the weekend of November 3rd and 4th, 2018

at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

The Spirit Plant Medicine Conference

We're in a remarkable historical time period. The tide is turning and after decades of ignorance and repression of sacred plants, there is a vigorous psychedelic renaissance underway. People are discovering, rediscovering, and developing multiple uses of sacramental entheogenic medicines such as ayahuasca, psilocybe mushrooms, iboga, peyote, cannabis, 5-MeO-DMT, LSD, MDMA, and many others.We at the Spirit Plant Medicine Conference (SPMC) recognize and are deeply inspired by the great potential of these medicines when they're understood and used skillfully. Now in its 7th year, the mission of the SPMC is to help guide this work forward by bringing a world-class international group of leading visionary voices to Vancouver.Along with the brilliant information and inspiration shared by the presenters, the conference has also proven to be a powerful community-strengthening event—a great environment to connect with others of similar interests and aspirations and to plant and nurture seeds that can and do lead to amazing manifestations.You are warmly invited to share in this vision and join us for a great weekend of insight, inspiration, compassion, and yes, humour.

The Use Of Visionary/Healing/ Awakening Plants

such as ayahuasca, psilocybe mushrooms, iboga, peyote, cannabis, huachuma (San Pedro), and semi-synthetic substances like LSD and MDMA—is spreading rapidly during this period of intensified change.

These allies may be the most direct and effective teachers many of us have now when we meet them in the best of conditions (set and setting) and are able to integrate the insights and openings into our daily lives.
