An End Of The Year Greeting

Dear Friends and Advocates,

This Giving Tuesday, we invite you to make a meaningful impact by supporting the Women’s Visionary Council (WVC) in our work assisting psychedelic elders, which involves honoring their knowledge, supporting their work, and ensuring their contributions continue to benefit us all. Your generosity can help us continue to honor and preserve the invaluable wisdom of those who have pioneered the understanding and responsible use of psychedelic plants and substances.

The term “psychedelic elders” typically refers to individuals who have been involved in the psychedelic movement since its emergence in the 1960s or have extensive experience and wisdom in the realm of psychedelics, whether through personal use, research, or advocacy. These individuals often possess deep knowledge about psychedelic substances, their effects, potential benefits, risks, and their cultural and historical significance.

The WVC is committed to recognizing and supporting the legacy of these remarkable individuals. Our initiatives include recording and documenting their experiences, facilitating their ongoing projects, and providing platforms to share and celebrate their lifetime of knowledge. By donating to the WVC, you are directly contributing to these efforts, ensuring that the accumulated wisdom and irreplaceable insights of our elders are not only preserved but also passed down to future generations.

Your support will enable us to create more opportunities for intergenerational dialogue, mentorship, and collaboration. It’s not just about honoring the past – it’s about building a bridge to the future. We believe in the power of these connections to foster a deeper, more informed understanding of our relationships to these substances and their potential for healing and growth.

Please consider making a donation to the Women’s Visionary Council this Giving Tuesday by visiting our website https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/visionarycongress. Your contribution, no matter the size, is a valuable investment in preserving the legacy and wisdom of our psychedelic elders. Together, we can ensure that their voices and experiences continue to enlighten and guide the psychedelic future.

With heartfelt thanks,

The Women’s Visionary Council
