Our Values

We believe that psychedelics can have a great impact on the health of our society and our goal is to steward their use in a safe and effective way.
Our intention with everything that we do is to empower those that can empower others, creating a lasting ripple effect across our communities and within our healthcare systems.

Integrity
In·teg·ri·ty /inˈteɡrədē/

In harmony with the practices and experiences we integrate into our community, we foster uncompromising honesty, reliability and a willingness to improve. We work from integrity to ensure all parts of the whole are healthy, strong and supported.

Respect
Re·spect /rəˈspekt/

Giving and receiving empathy, dignity, validation, and admiration for everyone’s different abilities, culture, qualities, challenges, and achievements. Listening openly and with curiosity to continuously learn from each other.

Equity
Eq·ui·ty /ˈekwədē/

Guided by a grounded notion of equity and self-care, we continue to do our self-work to bring awareness of our own privilege and cultural blind spots, ensuring a sense of respect, diversity, and reverence for all members of our community and ecology. By creating this sense of safe mutuality, we bring an anti-oppression lens to our work and continue to learn with humility and mutual respect.

Compassion
Com·pas·sion /kəmˈpaSHən/

Offering an authentic and empathetic exchange that inspires trust, equality, respect, creativity and collaboration. Individuals feel seen, heard and cared for. United as parts of the whole, the individuals are empowered to grow through the support and strength of the collective.
