For millennia, humans have used ancient technologies like meditation and psychedelic medicine to expand their consciousness, support healing and facilitate deep personal and collective transformation. As we continue to expand our technological capacities in the modern age, new tools for transformation are being birthed, and hold promising potential as solutions to humanity's systemic problems.
On May 18th and 19th, 2019, Consciousness Hacking held our first annual two day Awakened Futures Summit. Together we explored how the renaissance of psychedelic science and the mainstreaming of contemplative practices might combine with the latest transformative technologies to create the next paradigm of healing and awakening.
We brought together visionaries, teachers, researchers and entrepreneurs at the leading-edge to explore the integration points between these domains.
Questions that we explored:
What are the potential implications of scalable and universally accessible technologies that are as potent as peak psychedelic experiences or thousands of hours of meditation?
How can psychedelics, tech and meditation be combined to create totally new transformative tools leveraging the best of each?
What can we learn from the current landscape of psychedelic research and therapy to better design and administer transformative technologies?
Could modern tech ever replace organic molecules and traditional practices as means of shifting consciousness?
What are the ethical considerations and risks of these developments?
How do we preserve the wisdom of the ancient traditions as we move forward into an uncertain and technologically-enhanced future?
