Program-Global Forum

(for Psychedelic Week click here)

The programme below is only for preliminary reference and will be updated. Please be patient – the final version will be published soon. We are working on arranging the wide variety of topics in an interesting, complex and coherent manner. We believe that the running order and thematic continuity of the panels and lectures will be finished in the next days and that Beyond Psychedelics will be able to provide a perfectly balanced mixture of lectures, discussions, workshops and, last but not least, unforgettable experiences.
