Diversity and Inclusion
We celebrate the diversity of all conscious experiences.
We actively work to create and maintain an environment that respects and considers diverse physiologies and cultural backgrounds.
Focus on the Underserved
We will focus our resources and goals on the well-being of historically underserved and marginalized groups.
We engage and promote initiatives that disproportionately impact historically underserved communities.
We have signed Chacruna’s equity and inclusion statement.
Respect Indigenous Knowledge
The history of psychedelics is deeply rooted in indigenous peoples, communities, and traditions and it is our responsibility to ensure that history is not lost.
We engage with indigenous communities to learn about their present perspectives on and future visions about psychedelic-related practices.
We believe it imperative to support solutions to the ongoing exploitation of indigenous medicines (e.g. peyote and ayahuasca).
We support the non-judgmental, non-coercive provision of services and resources to people who use drugs and the communities in which they live.
In particular, we will refer our members to external toolkits or partner organizations where appropriate.
Solidarity and Collaboration
“When ‘I’ is replaced with ‘We’, then even the illness becomes wellness” – Malcolm X
We prioritize collaborating and building broad coalitions with organizations inside and outside the psychedelic space, to accomplish meaningful change.
Partnership or provision of a platform to any individual or organization is contingent on alignment with goals, principles, and values e.g. via a memorandum of understanding.
Public Awareness and Education
“Nothing in science has any value to society if it is not communicated.” – Anne Roe
We engage with the general public and disseminate knowledge through events, such as PsychedelX.
We support the Statement on Open Science and Praxis.
Share the Earth
We aim to cultivate “a strong connection with Nature in order to activate deeper levels of our understanding of reality and consciousness.” – The Cyberdelic Society.
We promote environmental stewardship so future generations may experience and embrace the natural beauty of this world.
All events, merchandise, and promotional materials will be produced at the lowest environmental cost possible.
We embody the spirit of light-heartedness and fun at the center of everything we do.
While failures and roadblocks are disappointing, we approach these challenges, like the rest of our work, with excitement and curiosity.
We create containers, e.g. IPN retreats and summits, for students to engage, co-create, and re-imagine the future.
We understand that individual acts of harm impact the entire network and, therefore, demand a community response.
Our measures of justice will seek to ensure the safety of those harmed, remedy conflict, and address the causes of misalignment of behavior with our principles and values in that order.
We actively cultivate and affirm consent culture.
When needed and possible, we will recruit university ombudspersons as third-party mediators along with the involvement of community members for support and long-term mediation.
