  • WVC Projects

    The Women's Visionary Council raises funds to provide grants to women on the forefront of psychedelic-assisted therapies for PTSD, end of life anxiety, depression, addiction, and other mental health conditions. We seek to amplify the voices of people of color, promote the advancement of women scholars, and encourage the transfer of knowledge among generations and cultural traditions.


    As a nonprofit fiscal sponsor we supported Sage Institute, a sliding scale clinic offering psychotherapy and psychedelic-assisted therapy (as it becomes legal) to under-served communities in the San Francisco Bay Area. Sage Institute also trains clinicians who reflect the diverse identities of the people they serve. After over a year of assistance from the WVC, we are proud to say that Sage Institute is now operating under their own 501(c)(3) status.

    The WVC addresses safety concerns for those participating in ceremonies that use psychedelics or engage in personal use of psychedelic substances.  Our founders have created Safety Tips for those participating in psychedelic ceremonies, a Manual of Best Practices for Radical Risk Reduction and Safety Protocols for Event and Community Organizers


    Since 2015, the WVC has presented risk reduction workshops at no cost to participants. These workshops provide training in the use of Naloxone, which blocks the effects of opioids including fentanyl to save lives from overdose. The most recent WVC risk reduction workshop took place in January 2020 in San Francisco where we joined with other community groups to provide training on how to use Naloxone and reagent testing kits.

    The WVC community includes thousands of people from around the world. You can support the work of the WVC by making a tax-deductible donation to help fund these ongoing projects:

    • In response to an escalating opioid epidemic and deaths from overdose, we organize risk reduction workshops.
    • The WVC is launching a new production crew that trains women how to finance, organize, and run community events.
    • WVC elders are frequently asked to speak, so we provide funds for travel or presentation at online events.
    • Support the upcoming 12th  Women’s Visionary Congress and this growing archive of presentations, documenting decades of research, activism, and personal stories of cognitive liberty - a body of knowledge that will benefit future generations.



  • WVC Initiatives

    The Women’s Visionary Council supports community service and social justice projects. These initiatives focus on reaching underserved communities and emerging movements that shift policy decisions and create long term change.

  • Conversations with women at WVC events reveal extensive concerns about safety during psychedelic ceremonies and at social events where psychoactive substances are used.
  • The WVC empowers women who work with plants and re-imagine food systems. Farmers and herbalists help communities connect to the power of the land and attune to the seasons.
  • In 2016, the WVC launched a series of workshops on risk reduction and drug safety. It raises funds to offer this training at no cost.
