  1. There was concern that “private psilocybin parties” were taking place amongst some students. On 27 May 1963, Alpert was fired for distributing psilocybin to an undergraduate student. Psychedelic-assisted therapies have resulted in transformative experiences for many individuals, as well as the practitioners who have worked with them. However, despite the wealth of anecdotal evidence gathered to date, the scientific basis for the use of psychedelics remains somewhat limited. In addition to the need for more basic science about how psychedelics work on the brain, psychedelic-assisted therapies will benefit from the development of best practice standards, modernized regulatory policy, practitioner training, and public education. “The goal of HAVN Life, since its inception, has been to support and serve communities in need of cognitive and mental health treatment alternatives,” says HAVN Life CEO, Tim Moore. “We feel well aligned with organizations like TheraPsil, who are advocating for compassionate access to psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy for Canadians in medical need, as well as making strides in creating a framework for what medicalized psilocybin may look like in the near future. We are thrilled to participate in Project Solace, which aims to move the needle on regulatory guidelines in Canada,” he adds. Research on the classical psychedelics, which include LSD, DMT, mescaline and psilocybin, has a long history at UC San Diego. Mark Geyer, Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry and Neurosciences Emeritus and founding member of the PHRI, has conducted research on the behavioral and neurobiological effects of psychedelics for more than 40 years at UC San Diego.  He also helped start the Heffter Research Institute in 1993, dedicated to renewing research into beneficial uses of psychedelics—research that had been cut off prematurely during the 1970s. There are more than 100 species of psilocybin mushrooms worldwide, with samples found everywhere from Latin and North America to Europe and Asia. Given this geographic distribution, it is unsurprising that various cultures throughout history have incorporated their use into ceremonial and religious practices.
