OUR VISION
AND VALUES
Our values — community, cooperation,
transparency, and scientific integrity —
emerge from our goals.
We are a public benefit corporation that seeks to improve individual and community health, primarily by developing new medicines and secondarily by encouraging healthy, humane, and sustainable ecosystems that can support effective psychedelic medicine. We believe medicalizing psychedelics is not enough. We must also psychedelicize medicine. For psychedelics to truly realize their transformative potential as medicines, we must integrate the practice of psychedelic medicine with more sustainable and equitable practices of health and community. To this end, we support pollination approaches for strengthening the connection of people to each other and to community systems that foster individual and collective flourishing. We have signed the northstar guide ethics pledge.

COMMUNITY
We are from the psychedelic community and for that community, imagined broadly and inclusively. Our community includes all those who have benefitted from, should have benefitted from, or could one day benefit from psychedelic drugs. Our community especially includes individuals and groups who have been harmed by unreasonable laws about psychoactive drugs. We support and work for restorative justice and for an end to white supremacy.
cooperation
We recognize we can only succeed through collaboration. We seek to help and be helped by people and organizations who broadly share our values and goals. We pursue patents and intellectual property with the goal of making sure we can do business (“freedom-to-operate”). We do not seek to block others from making discoveries, building organizations, or relieving suffering.
transparency
We strive to be clear about what we do and why. We will regularly communicate our objectives, our metrics for tracking progress, and our progress.
scientific integrity
We report the truth as we find it, even when it disappoints our hopes or expectations. We will do our best to avoid scientific fads and simplifications that can prevent us and others from seeing the truth. We will carefully research the potential harms as well as benefits of psychedelic medicine.
