Entheogenesis Australis presents
'Garden States Microdose' Webcast series
An encounter with a selection of Australian Ethnobotanical and Psychedelic Minds.
Upcoming webcast January 19th 2022 – 8 pm AEDT (Melbourne)
Be More Tree: What the psychedelic renaissance can learn from the laws of the land?
The eleventh Microdose Webcast will be a little different. We will be partnering with our sister organisation PRISM. This Episode will feature Dr Rosalind Watts. Ros is a former Clinical Lead of the Psilocybin for Depression trial at Imperial College London. This talk is for those looking to maintain long-term connectedness to self, others, and the natural world.
What do psychedelics mean for perceived divisions between and within our bodies, our environments and our cultures? Communitas, codes and ethics provide foundations for a less anthropocentric view of psychedelic set and setting. The line between identity and nature blurs even further in the unique connections of this entheobotanical community.
Hosted by PRISM & EGA
Bio - Dr Rosalind Watts
As former Clinical Lead of the Psilocybin for Depression trial at Imperial College London, Rosalind Watts, PhD, led a clinical team which facilitated over a hundred psilocybin treatment sessions. She is now part of a team exploring the potential of DMT as a treatment for depression in the UK. Ros has published qualitative research suggesting that the central psychological mechanism of psychedelic-assisted therapy could be ‘connectedness to self, others and world’ , which led to the development of a psychometrically validated tool for measuring connectedness, the Watts Connectedness Scale (WCS). She has also published a model for psilocybin-assisted therapy, 'Accept, Embody, Connect' and is about to offer a year-long online community integration process for anyone wanting to maintain long-term connectedness to self, others, and the natural world (Accept, Embody, Connect, Restore). Ros is an advisor to Usona, a not-for-profit profit psychedelic research organisation, and she currently leads the clinical track of the Synthesis Institute Psychedelic Practitioner Training.
Psychedelic Research in Science & Medicine (PRISM) is a DGR-1 charity, established in 2011 to initiate, coordinate, and support formal research into the applications of medicinal psychedelics and related technologies. PRISM provides scientific expertise for clinical trial and technology development for medicinal psychedelics and consciousness research. PRISM supports clinical research for the treatment and prevention of conditions for which current therapies provide limited relief.
