Psychedelic Parenthood: Why Are We Leaving Children and Adolescents Out of the Psychedelic Renaissance?

As the psychedelic movement gains momentum, its impact on individuals extends beyond personal exploration. Thousands of parents and caregivers are now weaving these experiences into their lives, seeking support for challenges like imposter syndrome and maternal guilt. While traditional cultures have long incorporated psychedelics within community life, including pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding, the Western psychedelic mainstream still struggles to include families.

This presentation, drawing upon the author’s personal experience raising children in a Brazilian psychedelic context, offers 10 points for reflection on navigating this new frontier. It explores the potential and risks of psychedelic therapy for young people, social and economic considerations for psychedelic families, and the need to decolonize the field to embrace diverse perspectives. By sparking a dialogue about psychedelic parenthood, we can work towards a more inclusive and supportive Psychedelic Renaissance.

Join us for this FREE webinar hosted by Dr. Glauber Loures de Assis, Associate Director of Chacruna Latinoamérica in Brazil.

Dr. Glauber Loures de Assis has a Ph.D. in sociology from the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) and is Research Associate at the Interdisciplinary Group for Psychoactive Studies (NEIP) in Brazil. His main interests include the ayahuasca religions, new religious movements, the internationalization of the Brazilian religions, drug use in contemporary society, and psychedelic parenthood. He is the author of numerous articles and book chapters, and the co-editor of the book Women and Psychedelics: Uncovering Invisible Voices (Synergetic Press/Chacruna Institute, in press). Glauber is also an ayahuasca practitioner with 15 years of experience. He has built this practice in dialogue with his local Brazilian ayahuasca community and with the blessings of Indigenous elders and activists in Brazil. He is also the leader of Jornadas de Kura, a plant medicine center in Brazil that promotes a bridge between the ceremonial use of sacred plants and psychedelic science.
