What a weekend at the @cryptopsychedelic conference and @welcometoabracadabra .. The words “Next Level” get thrown around a lot, I will have to say that the #CryptoPsychedelic Initial Event Offering in Tulum was exactly that.
I had the pleasure of interviewing some speakers of the event, presenting for CRYPCO, and met some brilliant minds like Sterlin Luxan, a visionary anarchist activist and speaker for bitcoin.com; Liana Sananda, next-level woman in Crypto and head of strategic partnerships at Lightstar, and Daniel Shankin of Psymposia -
Psymposia shares stories and fresh perspectives about how emerging psychedelic science, drug policy reform, and harm reduction shape society. 💫
The part of the day that made my heart sing the most was hearing Dennis McKenna speak about how Ayahuasca is making its way into the western world because she is “an intelligent plant” … “It is an ambassador of Gaia from a community of species to get its message out… Part of its agenda is to get out there and make connections. We have to foster that project… not be too judgemental, and we must maximize the benefit of that.” It was interesting to hear panels on using blockchain to fix a broken health system that profits on keeping people sick, ungrounded, and dependent on pharmaceutical drugs; Correcting government systems based on misinformation and fear; fixing a correctional system that profits by keeping people behind bars by putting systems in place where institutions are instead incentivized to keep the peace, and using Cryptocurrency and ICOs for intentional social projects and to provide funding for research and advocacy on indigenous plant medicine and psychedelic compounds to treat depression, PTSD, and heart problems. 💫
The ideas presented at the CryptoPSychedelic gathering were nothing short of extraordinary and revolutionary, looking forward to seeing how this space unfolds and seeing how we can use these tools to make a better world 🙏🏽💫🙌🏽🧚🏾♀️ thank you @planetbibi for the photo during @bloemsmusic’s set before @blondishmusic at #abracadabra
