    We are delighted to announce that the Women’s Visionary Council (WVC) will host the 2023 Women’s Visionary Congress in Berkeley, CA from Friday, October 6th, to Sunday, October 8th.

Since 2007, this event has amplified the voices of women and elders who work with psychedelics. We invite you to come hear the healers, researchers, activists, artists and spiritual leaders wh
  2. BICYCLE DAY with Hofmann Quotes In appreciation for the people and cultures throughout history who have cherished psychedelic experiences, and helped to bring us to where we are able to undertake this kind of serious study, I would like to introduce you to a holiday that has been celebrated in my community for almost 40 years. In 1984, educational psychology professor Thomas B. Roberts at Northern Illinois University founded the first Bicycle Day, on April 19th.

These awards have only one requirement: that the recipient use the grant funds in support of their personal health, pleasure or well-being. The WVC will continue this tradition as a part of its focus on the older members of psychedelic communities. It will organize discussions with elders on WVC website forums, online events and i

  5. Psychic Self Defense, by Maria Mangini 2015 It is not uncommon in modern life to find oneself daily exposed to various kinds of mental and psychic manipulation. Sales techniques, ways of fascinating sexual partners, attempts to make oneself popular and dominant, and schemes for attracting money and success are all commonplace in our daily exposure to media and to other peoples’ ideas and desires. Most advertising that we encounter is based on a promise that some product or practice will help us with one or another of these goals. In some facet of our lives, most o

  7. The Shadow: Transcription of a talk presented by Ann Shulgin at the 2019 Women’s Congress in June 2019 Testing testing. Can you all hear me in back? Ok, do you hear me better now? Does any one hear me at all? (Those present say yes! Laughter and cheers.) You are going to have to forgive me for reading my talk. I’m eighty-eight years old and my memory is very good. But not good enough to do this off the top of my head. So please forgive me. I am talking about the Shadow. You can divide people who explore their consciousness with visio
