Ryskowski said that entheogens can offer healing that won’t be found in traditional medicine. “It means real healing,” he said. “People lose so much of their lives to mental health issues.”
Ray Ryskowski said that the conference was something he’s wanted to organize ever since. “We’ve been working up to the conference for years with our goal being to build community and trying to maintain a balanced and educational perspective on psychedelic medicines,” Amanda Ryskowski said. Over the course of the three-day conference, 47 speakers discussed the therapeutic potential of psychedelics such as psilocybin, ayahuasca, peyote, MDMA, DMT, ibogaine, ketamine, cannabis and more through a series of panel discussions, presentations and workshops.
