Music as/for Psychedelic Therapy

12th December 2020 | 16:00 – 21:00 CET | Online


The combined use of music and psychedelics is ancient and universal. Yet with the rise of psychedelic therapy, many questions are emerging on the function of music and how to apply it effectively within in this context. This workshop will take a co-creative approach, combining introspective music listening, group discussion and presenting relevant research. The workshop will focus on teaching participants practical skills on how to apply this knowledge in practice. Finally, workshop participants will be amongst the first to experiment with Wavepaths’ app that provides adaptive music for psychedelic therapies.

In addition, participants will receive:

  • A deep listening session guided by Mendel;
  • A wealth of psychedelic therapy playlists in Spotify, and clear instructions on how to use these;
  • Free access to Wavepaths Beta for one month;
  • Free access to Wavepaths’ education platform for one month.
