Research

Through clinical studies like EPIsoDE, featured surveys from institutions like John Hopkins University or MIND’s study on acceptance, the potential of psychedelic medicine and its risks are being uncovered. We employ rigorous scientific methodologies, to inform discourse on psychedelics and contribute to the growing body of evidence supporting their therapeutic benefits.

Training & Personal Development

Our 14 programs address everyone – from medical professionals and psychotherapists to people with a very new personal interest in contemplative states and psychedelics. The APT program is a training course for psychedelic therapy – in English and German. Beyond Experience and Footsteps teach integration skills. uniMIND connects young and senior researchers all over the world, while our blog is a reliable resource for psychedelics-related information.

Eco-System

Through our network we build an eco-system that revolves around clinical work, research, human development, and community building. Particularly our clinical partner, the OVID Clinic Berlin, sets new standards for innovative mental health treatments, and through memberships and our community, as well as through in-person event series like the INSIGHT Forum we create cultural momentum.

Augmented Psychotherapy Training

One of the key challenges concerning the implementation of psychedelic-assisted therapies (PATs) lies in the lack of qualified and trained therapists to facilitate these novel treatment modalities. This is exactly why we felt the need to create the most extensive and scientifically grounded training program. 

The Augmented Psychotherapy Training is a 15-month curriculum that provides participants with the knowledge and skills they need to practice Psychedelic-Augmented Psychotherapy and Integration-Focused Psychotherapy in a legal, safe, and evidence-based framework. 

Providing excellent training to a new generation of psychedelic therapists is key to the success of implementing psychedelic therapies.

INSIGHT Forum

To harness the potential of altered states of consciousness for human development, we need to create a new, and responsible culture. That is why the INSIGHT Forum opened it doors in February 2024. Here we critically explore the science and the practice of consciousness from a variety of perspectives - the medical, philosophical, societal, economic, and many more to inform our discourse. Ultimately, we strive for a responsible enculturation of psychedelic states into medicine and society, much in the way the German philosopher Thomas Metzinger describes with his concept of a Bewusstseinskultur (an ethical culture of consciousness). 

In practical terms, the INSIGHT Forum is realized in an event series that lends itself to this goal. Each event consists of three parts: the Rationale as critical, intellectual discourse, the Transrationale as an experiental practice such as meditation, and Communitas as a networking space. Through this combination of activities, we strive to build a new cultural context.

Get Involved

Around the core MIND Foundation exists a flourishing, multilayered network that invites you to join and participate. 

The MIND Members Association offers memberships in MIND's supportive, professional association in order to facilitate MIND's goals and mission. With members in over 48 countries across the globe, our Members Association offers many activities and contents that are accessible online. The main public space to join the network is our MIND Community Platform.

To get involved in the offline world, we have built a global network of journal clubs that are interdisciplinary and discuss academic publications in the field of psychedelic science. If you are interested in more informal local communities that focus on personal and human development, psychedelic integration, and social life, you are cordially invited to participate in or organize your own localMIND group.

There are more ways to get involved, for example through an internship, volunteering, donating or fundraising at MIND - do not hesitate to get in touch!
