WPD Presents The Psychedelic Salon

9 am – noon (PST) / Noon – 3 pm (EST) / 5-8 pm (BST/GMT)

Last year 2,500 people from over 50 countries registered for 15 thought-provoking panels with 52 global speakers. If you’d like to view them, they’re available here for free.

This year we’re jumping into augmented reality in the Ozzo.events 3D meeting platform. Ozzo has generously offered to host our Psychedelic Salon and has hosted events for MAPS (the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies) and NASA. Using your arrow keys, you can move around freely in Ozzo’s interactive 3D environments and talk with or listen to this year’s great line-up of guests and people from all over our beautiful planet.

If you’d like to join us we’d encourage you to watch this 1 minute demo video. Please go for a full tour of its features prior to the event.
