The Aspen Psychedelic Symposium gathered over 400 curious attendees to explore the tradition, science, and advocacy behind integrating these life-saving medicines into modern culture.

This five-part radio broadcast series features discussions on ceremonial use, mental health treatments, pain management, the role of public policy, and a special keynote lecture presented by Dennis McKenna. Hear from groundbreaking researchers, scientists, doctors and others working in the field— alongside individuals who have had these life-changing experiences.

Produced by Aspen Public Radio, the Aspen Psychedelic Resource Center, Healing Advocacy Fund, and the Wheeler Opera House, these recordings were made live during a day-long event in Aspen, CO.

The recent successful state passage of the Natural Medicine Health Act (Proposition 122) represents a massive shift in public perception regarding psychedelics. Colorado's ballot initiative was the first to decriminalize the possession and use of psychedelic mushrooms and certain plant-based psychedelic substances in Colorado law for individuals aged 21 and over, and requires the state to establish a regulated system for accessing psychedelic mushrooms and additional plant-based psychedelic substances.
