EGA is a world-renowned australian ethnobotanical conference with a difference, the main auditorium is out under the summer stars in the Australian bushland.  This outdoor Psychedelic Symposium will span three days and nights, running from Friday 8 – Sunday 10 December 2017 and featuring more than 50 lectures covering a variety of perspectives on psychedelics and entheogenic plants and compounds. To accompany the main program there will also be discussion panels,  related workshops, as well as art and a market place.  

The 2017 Psychedelic Symposium is shaping up to be an incredible gathering of people from around the world sharing a wide variety of knowledge and experience on psychedelics and entheogens.  The event has gained international recognition for developing dialogue and community around this important field of study for over 14 years. 

The International Keynote presenters at EGA @017 announced so far (read full bios of the speakers below):

The Symposium

Taking place in the Goulburn Valley region of Victoria, Australia, the 2017 Psychedelic Symposium will utilise two venues including a new state-of-the-art conference space, nestled into a native bush mountain range with expansive views of the valley below.  The 2017 Psychedelic Symposium will see our much-loved outdoor auditorium return, supported by immersive outdoor spaces filled with art installations, market stalls, on-site catering and a bar. 
 

Accommodation and Catering

EGA is a unique event, and with that in mind, we have designed optional accommodation and catering packages for the growing number of interstate and international attendees drawn to this special gathering from all over the globe. Camping will be included in the ticket price for all ticket holders with an array of options to upgrade accommodation for those seeking a weekend away with all the creature comforts.

The conference will also have both self-catering and camping options for those looking to spend the weekend among the trees - as we know many enjoy that aspect of the outdoor experience so we have been able to maintain these elements with the new EGA conference model, however, there will be a shuttle bus between some elements and events.

Accommodation options for 2017 include camping sites near the water with access to camp kitchens and dorms/cabins with ensuite facilities. For those looking to upgrade further, we are also now able to offer private 4-star rooms with all the creature comforts. Regular shuttle buses will operate between the different accommodation and camping options and the main conference spaces over the event operation hours.

The Speakers

For 2017, we have increased the diversity of perspectives, subjects and methodologies of our speakers. This year’s speaker list includes relevant experts from the fields of psychedelic research, therapy, botany, anthropology, drug law reform, harm reduction, arts and design and many other areas of psychedelic culture. The speaker list is by no means exhaustive, and we look forward to a greater range of speaker applications from relevant and interested experts. Please help us in spreading the word and encouraging speaker applications for this national meeting of the minds by visiting entheogenesis.org.

 

2017 Conference Model

This EGA is going to be a different event from those of past years, so for those familiar with past EGA events, the new site and 2017 conference model has been designed as a fusion of the best of both our prior outdoor and indoor gatherings. This evolution will allow us to play host to a more professional, sustainable and international-minded event – while holding dear to the very elements that make EGA so unique. With this change, we hope to further legitimise Australia’s voice in the Psychedelic community around the world as well as setting the bar for conferences in the field of Psychedelic study in Australia. 
 

Ticket Sales

Ticket are now on sale via our web page. We announced the event early to give people time to save up for tickets as the conference new site and EGA vision come at a price, but one the team feels will be more than justified for attendees of the 2017 gathering.  Please keep in mind public tickets are limited to strictly 500. The conference will undoubtedly sell out well in advance, so make sure you hold the dates free and make EGA 2017 a conscious part of next year’s calendar.

For students and low-income earners, EGA has a payment plan option in place.  Please refer to the bottom of the ticketing page.

We very much hope you join us in December 2017, as we immerse ourselves in sharing the knowledge and multifaceted value of psychedelic and related compounds in an amazing new site surrounded by like-minded souls. Spread the word and let’s gather under the stars to celebrate an open and mature dialogue around entheogenic plants.

We hope you will join us for this special self-claimed long weekend away with the community while we explore the conversation around Psychedelics.

Kind regards

EGA team

Go to this. Absolutely go to this. Put it on your calenders, wend your way to Melbs and just go

 

I have loved every single EGA I have been to . It's not just the presentations, it's the networking and the catching up with old friends you get to see all at once

 

If you've never been and are worried about not knowing anyone yet, start thinking about that now, start a thread here or on FB, and people will often put themselves forward to make sure you don't feel isolated and have an excellent time

 

Run by lovely, friendly, professional people

Couldn't agree more.

 

Entheogenesis is an incredible collaboration, which brings together people from all walks of life, and with a very diverse set of backgrounds, interests, and approaches to the questions and subjects discussed at these events.

 

Hard to believe how many years have passed since the last outdoor event.

 

I'll be there 100%.

Hey, i need to do an updated event thread for EGA, but it's been a big start to the year and I thought I would jump on quick and drop a message to let you know there are only 5 Early Bird students/Pensioner tickets are left for this round of EGA tickets.

 

Better they go to SAB users so yes, get them while you can if you can - http://www.entheogenesis.org

 

Much respect 

Ronny:wink:

EGA Applications for local and international presenters close tomorrow night!
 
If you have been thinking about making a submission, apply now before it to late.
 
The 2017 Psychedelic Symposium will cover a diverse range of issues stemming from people’s use of a variety of psychoactive plants, fungi and other chemicals over the millennia and the social, cultural, scientific, political, and historical/traditional perspectives. Altered states of consciousness are a part of humanity’s story, with cultures throughout history having a myriad of relationships with psychoactive substances, from divine reverence to fear, prohibition and absolute condemnation.
 
If your interested make sure apply via the web page before Sunday is over!

Are you all psyched for this? Finally after years of waitingits back outdoors.

Thisevent has been the highlight of the year for me in the past. 

I'm looking forward to meeting my community again.

Seriously if you haven't been or are unsure about attending, make the investment. You just don't get to meet this group of people together at the same time in  other  circumstances.

If you have the ability to make this event. You'd be crazy not to go. I am so disappointed I can't attend this time round. The first outdoor EGA I'm going to miss and what looks like the best one yet. So many good memories. Like being a kid in a candy store. If your name was alice, then this is your wonderland. I just can't afford airfare and accomodation with a mortgage. Real life gets in the way sometimes. Please go or even just support this event. I will be donating to the raffle as usual. So if u can't make it, be sure to buy some raffle tix and be in for a chance at some incredible prizes.

Yes is Alan

 

ALAN ROCKEFELLER is a specialist in fungal taxonomy from Oakland, California, USA. In 2000 he began his autonomous studies in the field of mycology, beginning with the collection of fungi in California.   Each year since 2007 he has traveled to Mexico to collect mushrooms - he has now identified more than 1,000 species of fungi from Mexico.     Based on phylogenetic and microscopic analysis he has identified several species not described in the scientific literature. Alan regularly identifies mushrooms for several fungus fairs in Mexico and the USA in addition to identifying on websites such as The Shroomery, Mushroom Observer, iNaturalist and various Facebook groups.

 

Giving two talks and one workshop - see the EGA web page for more info under the programming tab
