Psychedelics, Wellbeing & Spirituality

Amanda Feilding set up the Beckley Foundation with a passionate desire to understand the mechanisms underlying consciousness and its changing states, and to explore ways of harnessing the healing potential of these compounds. Fascinated by their capacity to initiate mystical states of consciousness and heighten creativity, Amanda Feilding quickly recognised their transformative and therapeutic power.

Although spirituality is almost as taboo as psychedelics themselves in the scientific community, one of the Beckley Foundation’s goals is to explore in depth the link between the two – knowledge which could be key to fully harnessing their transformative and healing potential.

At the core of the healing experience brought about by psychedelic-assisted therapy, is the mystical experience.” – Amanda Feilding
