MAPS is one of the most extraordinary nonforprofit organizations I know. Their dedicated leaders, enormous volunteer base, diversity of supporters, unique expertise in the field and hard work puts them on the forefront among most effective nonforprofits today.  MAPS has been able to bring together scientists and thinkers, health practitioners and faith leaders, cutting edge research institutions and diverse ethno - cultural wisdom practitioners, visionaries and community leaders from across the globe to create more positive, more humane and more hopeful world. MAPS transformative work is providing many people with hope towards healing, recovery and wholeness when it is most needed in their lives. I am very honored to know them.

MAPS is an excellent organization with great integrity and best of intentions. They work they are doing is invaluable and the brave people who stand up and fight for what they know is right in the name of helping others deserves all it can get. As they have steadily progressed with their projects and the success of their clinical studies it is only a matter of time before many people wake up and realize the importance of this work and how it has been all along, thanks to the incredibly supportive community who literally fund it all independently.

At the forefront of human potential, I believe MAPS vision to be inspiring and valuable. Although psychedelics, entheogens and hallucinogens have played a sacred and central and role in most societies throughout history, today they are misunderstood and oppressed both culturally and politically. MAPS is leading the way in their renaissance with solid scientific research and public policy reform. Like microscopes and telescopes for a conscious psyche and humane spirit, the first time I experienced psychedelics I caught a glimpse of the potential and possible implications they hold. Used in medicine, psychiatry and spiritual practices, psychedelics can heal individuals and positively transform society and culture. The impact MAPS could contribute to human development spans wide and deep.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing their online presence and public relations grow. They once seemed humble and amateurish in appearance, but now their revamped mission and media savvy website display a clear and professional presentation.

significantly influence the world. Imagine integrated health care centers that offer psychedelic therapy where individuals could heal, develop and thrive. Healthy, balanced, open, loving and awake -- imagine cultures that function at deeper ways of being.

MAPS has worked to keep the candle of psychedelic research going through some very dark years. It is difficult to appreciate how long they have tried to disseminate balanced and helpful information in the face of a "no tolerance" attitude and a "war on drugs" which put all substances into the same category. Now that some psychedelic research is actually taking place again after decades, MAPS is leading the way with careful studies.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Meeting with others to share information on both psychedelics and their legal and social ramifications.

MAPS first came into my life 6 or 7 years ago at Burning Man. They were involved in a camp named entheon village. Entheon village hosted a series of lectures with speakers from all over the world with different backgrounds. I had just read PIHKAL and was thrilled to know Dr. Alexander Shulgin was in attendance and giving a couple lectures. Dr. Shulgin and MAPS have taught me the value of a psychedelic experience and how to responsibly delve into the mind through psychedelic experience. MAPS is definitely holding the torch when it comes to researching and studying the myriad of positive uses and applications of psychedelic experience. Without organizations like MAPS so much potential could be lost by dogmatic and fearful thinking when it comes to furthering ourselves spiritually and mindfully. Thank You MAPS for demystifying entheogens and showing me how to responsibly and productively explore the mind.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the research that has been funded by MAPS and the public pull MAPS can garner.

Maps is leading the revolution of scientific study into the important area of medecines /tools for the mind. Both healing in the sick and growth /development in the healthy. They're spearheading an evolution of societies attidudes and perceptions with regard to mind altering substances. We live in a maturing society, one in which regulation rather than prohibition will continue to prove the more effective and beneficial policy. The work of maps is an inspiration and an example of what can be achieved with patience perseverance and a solid and righteous philosophy

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The misinformation and propaganda surrounding the medicines they are developing.

One thing I'd also say is that...

It's time that society and the media get real and stop sensationaling for revenue and the DEA redirect their strong arm bully boy tactics. Let the scientists and the medical profession deal with drugs and re-employ these crime fighters fighting crime.
