Psychedelic Science will offer pre- and post-conference workshops with Stanislav Grof, M.D., Rick Doblin, Ph.D., Michael Mithoefer, M.D., Annie Mithoefer, B.S.N., Alex and Allyson Grey, David Nichols, Ph.D., Franz Vollenweider, M.D., Ralph Metzner, Ph.D., and Ann Harrison and Carolyn "Mountain Girl" Garcia of the Women's Visionary Congress.

Also speaking will be Bob Wold (Me  ;)

from Clusterbusters.

This conference is an important fundraising and awareness raising opportunity for Clusterbusters. An important step in getting our research approved and funded for future work at Harvard and in Germany. We're looking forward to 2010 being a exciting year for us with psilocybin as well as moving forward with BOL.

The next step in our goals with Bromo-lsd will be an expanded study with participants in both Europe and the US.

This conference will help lay the groundwork for this expanded work.

Hope to see some of you there

The conference was quite an experience.

1200 people actually showed up along with a gaggle of news crews.

Presentations going on in 3 locations to get through everything.

This conference was an important step in reaching Clusterbuster's goals and has helped move our work forward.

2 CNN video segments, The Lancet, Nature Magazine, The Associated Press,WIRED, Yahoo News and dozens of other articles and reports stirred up by the conference so far:

With everything going on, it was tough getting a mention in the articles. I'm still getting through them all but I know we got mentioned in the Lancet..

Onward and Upward!

Bob

Thanks to the Busters that attended  :)
