We are part of a European network focused on new approaches to Mental Health and Well-being, with both academic, commercial and non-profit branches. We are a spin-off of the Department of Consciousness Research of SENSE-GARDEN. We collaborate with the Wisdom of Plants Institute and with the Department of Neuromedicine and Movement Science, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
The European Institute of Consciousness Research is focused on the phenomenological dimension of Psychedelics, Meditation and Non-Ordinary States of Consciousness, studying how different methods and techniques can transform human experience and enable a meaningful personal journey.
During the last decades, academic research is providing significant evidence about the low toxicity and potential therapeutic benefits of psychedelics.
Likewise, neuroscience has been studying meditation techniques with remarkable results in the context of mental health and well-being.
In order to complement science-based data supporting this thesis with a phenomenological approach, our role is to offer a window towards the experiential aspect of psychedelic-induced and meditative experiences.
We are interested in the phenomenological aspects of human experience, as well in the development of educational and informative programs for professionals in the field of mental health, counseling, or psychotherapy.
We are intended to explore with a qualitative approach the fascinating world of Non-Ordinary States of Consciousness .
Both psychedelics and long-term meditation can lead to a wide range of transpersonal experiences, some of them characterized by ego dissolution, with remarkable implications for PTSD, as well as depression or anxiety disorders.
The neurological impact of mindfulness-based practices & psychedelics can lead to positive outcomes in people's daily lives far beyond the moment of the experience, independently of the existence of a specific mental disorder.
On countable occasions, meditative experiences and a proper use of psychedelic substances can lead to positive outcomes such as gratitude, acceptance, belonging and a sense of a higher purpose. Beyond the cognitive impact, there are positive implications in behavior, such as the emergence of an ecological and social mindset.
