OUR VALUES

We thrive on shared values and a shared vision for common sense psilocybin laws.  We use our values as a moral and ethical compass. These values are invoked at length whenever possible.

Science-based information

We value peer-reviewed scientific research for its ability to prove things false, knowing that a greater truth always transcends human experience and observation. Science can tell us what does not work and provides endless opportunities to open our eyes to a world of new possibilities.

Environmental stewardship

We can advocate for nature’s rightful place in our modern society: a source of life and wonder. Sensible laws regarding organic compounds with medical benefits can celebrate the wonders of mother nature while helping us understand our connection to it.


Solidarity

We seek to form partnerships with those who have been researching, advocating, and promoting sensible psilocybin laws.  We understand that the collective is the only vehicle for change. We commit our time, resources, and material to each other. 

Compassion

We must support common sense psilocybin laws that are accessible to everyone regardless of their background and we must protect those who have been unjustly persecuted due to archaic drug laws.  We demand our government support an America that works for all Americans and foreign policies that support a world that works for everyone. We seek a deep bond with ourselves, one another, and a higher power, as we understand it, by better understanding the human condition.

Transparency 

We increase our courage to have honest conversations about difficult topics both internally with our organization and externally with our supporters.  We acknowledge that we have the ability to oppress and be oppressed. We admit publically the ways in which we have oppressed ourselves and others.

Education 

We study the delicate intricacies of psilocybin history and research so we may craft a better future for our country. The goal of Psilo is to have common sense psilocybin laws but can only achieve this if we acquire, educate and activate advocates. 

Ethics and Safety

We value ethics and safety as integral components of common sense psilocybin laws. Reform is undermined by practitioners of psilocybin assisted therapy who do not safeguard participants from consent violations. Legislators, independent third parties and community members must develop regulatory bodies free from conflicts of interest and that oversee both licensed and unlicensed therapists.

Fun

We work because it’s fun and if it’s fun, we’re working.
