Have A Nice Trip: The Rise of Psychedelic Tourism

Mar 16, 2022

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

From Goop Labs to Nine Perfect Strangers, psychedelic retreats have been glamorized, dramatized, championed, and vilified by Hollywood. But as access to psychedelics expands with evolving regulations and attitudes, these retreats are entering the mainstream. Psychedelic tourism is on the rise — evidenced by a worldwide influx of psychedelic wellness retreats designed for anyone seeking healing, solace and mind expansion through nature’s bounty of plant medicines.

In this session, you’ll learn what actually happens at a psychedelic retreat: where and how they operate amidst a complex, evolving web of state and national regulations; the daily work of psychedelic retreat facilitators; and the trends converging to drive this burgeoning new category of luxury travel.
