  1. We have managed to squeeze a few more rooms at the discounted rate for the Inn at OpryLand.

    These rooms will only be held until Tuesday September 2, 2014, after that a higher rate will apply.

    If you need a room, please book it NOW.

    If you have any difficulties please email info@clusterbusters.org

    See you in Nashville.

  2. available now, right now.   :-)


    Please, if you are coming please book your room now.  We have a block left and we WILL LIKELY be running out at some point.  There are other hotels nearby if we can't find a room at The Inn   

    Let us know if  you have any troubles.


    Feel free to copy this anywhere else if there are discussions about no rooms.



  3. The Clusterbusters, Inc. 9th Annual Cluster Headache Conference in Nashville TN, is now only 45 days away. This year's lineup of speakers will educate, entice and hopefully entertain all that attend during the September 18 to 21, 2014 weekend.

    If you are planning on making it to this event, we urge you to register and make your hotel reservations, if you need them, as soon as possible.   Attendance is running higher than last year and we have a limited number of rooms remaining.  There are other hotels nearby if the room block at the Inn at Opryland fills.

    There are many things that need to be planned based upon total attendance and the earlier we have a good number on how many are attending, the easier it is for us to plan ahead and make the conference as enjoyable for everyone as we can.  Please register through the link below to assist us in planning.


    What a line-up of speakers!!  (see above)

  4. I despise editing posts.  But after discussion with other admin persons it seemed necessary in this thread which incorrectly identified wrong individuals and therefore cast doubt on their qualifications, expertise and commitment to persons with CH.

    Opinions are fine. Lets play nice.

    OK, I really hate editing posts.


  5. Thanks for posting about this problem.   Checking into it further.

    Seems to be working for me from 3 different browsers?  The link ad the site.

    Not sure why?

    Maybe try clearing your memory cache, could be an old page still stored?

    Anyone else having this problem?

  6. I've just sent out emails to all registrants on this message board with a new speaker list and the details of the conference.

    The main registration page is here:  ONLINE REGISTRATION

    Yes, there is plenty of parking.

    To all the newcomers or first-timers thinking of coming --- I can only say these conferences are the experience of a CH lifetime, one you will not want to miss.

    And it will be a great conference, once again.


  7. Got this in the mail today from the researchers at John Hopkins.  If you might qualify, please consider completing the survey.

    Researchers from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine are currently recruiting individuals who have quit smoking cigarettes or reduced their smoking (even temporarily) after an experience with a psychedelic, for participation in an online survey. Our team has previously conducted innovative research on the effects of compounds including psilocybin, dextromethorphan, and salvinorin A.

    The goal of this survey is to learn more about whether psychedelic drugs are associated with reduction or cessation of cigarette smoking. We want to characterize people's experiences in non­laboratory settings in which taking a psychedelic may have led to reducing or quitting smoking. For the purposes of this survey, we will be asking specifically about individuals who have quit smoking cigarettes or reduced their smoking (even temporarily) after experiences with psilocybin (magic) mushrooms, LSD, morning glory seeds, mescaline, peyote cactus, San Pedro cactus, DMT, or ayahuasca. This research study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board of Johns Hopkins Medicine.

    The survey is completely anonymous (IP addresses will not be recorded) and will require 40-45 minutes to complete. If you are interested in participating, please click the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/nonsmoker . Your participation is voluntary and will not be financially compensated.

    Participants must be 18+ years of age, speak/write English fluently, and have experienced a reduction or cessation of cigarette smoking after an experience with one of the psychedelic substances listed above. For more information, please contact the researchers via the site's private messaging system.

    This is one conference you will not want to miss!

    Meeting another "clusterhead" in person is one of the more meaningful experiences previous conference attendees share with us when asked for feedback, so come for this reason alone.

    Schedule of Events:

    The 9th Annual Conference will start with Registration and the President's Reception at 6pm on Thursday September 18, 2014. 

    The speakers and presentations will follow beginning at 9am on Friday  and continue to Saturday at 5pm.  Sunday is left open for socializing and final goodbyes.

    We are still working on the agenda and list of speakers, these will be announced shortly.


    As the size of the conference grows each year it becomes more important we plan the conference well in advance to obtain the best possible rates while ensuring we have space, rooms and food for everyone.  We need your help to make it all possible.


    • Current Research on the Human Experience of Spirituality Following the Ingestion of ‘MagicÂ’ Psilocybin Mushrooms: An Annotated Bibliography for Social Workers and Other Health Care Professionals

      An interesting an lengthy paper by Rose Jade, attorney.   

      Annotations throughout and more reading way down in the 28 pages.

      This page leads to the abstract and the entire paper can be  downloaded at no cost.


      Oh, it doesn't mention CH anywhere in the paper.   :-(

    • Today I managed to crash part of the message board. Administration his its privileges and pitfalls.

      I think everything was recovered but any posted made while I was messing things up could have been lost, if so I apologize.

      A big thank you to DJ for bailing me out of this.  Again.   

      Thanks DJ - best of the season to you and your family.


    • I can't take credit for anything that is changing.      And I'm certainly no whiz at cyberspace.   lol

      DJ manages the site and server for us, so anything that is happening is because of his tireless efforts for Clusterbusters and those with cluster headache.

      Thanks DJ!!

    • Thanks for the voice of reason Jeebs.

      I'm thinking of leaving this without edits as similar questions have been asked in the past and for some this is a very important and serious subject.

      I respect the topic and the questions.  I find the information quite interesting.

      However, this is really close to being over the line.  The Government, Microsoft/computers and Religion all in one thread.

      Leaving it for now (hope that is OK), as long as we play nice and stick to the topic.  :-)
