Renaissance is an expansive multimedia project promoting compassionate healing via psilocybin assisted therapy, a scientifically-validated approach to mental healthcare being introduced by Oregon in 2022 and 2023. Oregon is the first state to pass such inspiring progressive legislation.
This body of work began in 2019 and was completed over three years, with the majority produced during the pandemic era. It is our first release created with prominent collaborators separate from Gravity Mission.
Our latest release serves to be an educational framework in alignment with the goals of the Oregon Psilocybin Society (OPS), PSI 2020, IP-34, and Measure 109 passed on the Oregon 2020 state ballot. As a team of four, we choose to acknowledge the surging mental health crisis within the United States and to address it from a compassionate space.
Our intention with Renaissance is to support those who wish to move forward with psychedelic assisted therapy as a beneficial means for integrating clinically proven, lasting, and positive changes within their lives. It is offered as a prominent self-care resource for promoting deeper relaxation and quality of rest; processing emotions and traumas; fostering loving kindness, mindfulness, and empathy; abandoning entrenched addictions and vices; and facing death with dignity on one’s own terms.
