“Psychedelics have been used since ancient times in many different cultures for treatment of physical and mental ailments. If you wish to widen your perspective and release your creativity, they are an effective tool of self-discovery. I wish that our society re-establishes its pragmatic relationship with these substances and utilizes them in therapy.“
„Mental health problems and depression are a growing world-wide problem. For decades, it’s been just narrowed down to suppressing symptoms. I believe that there is a huge therapeutic potential in psychedelics, not only for the treatment of depression. In my opinion, it’s crucial to support studies of these substances, so in the future, they can be used safely for our benefit.”
"Scientific research should be free, it should not be subject to the prejudices and clichés of the time. If there are natural substances that can significantly help people, both individuals and the human species as a whole, it is right to support such research. The more complex our world becomes, the more obvious it is that we cannot limit ourselves to looking after our physical side. Human beings as individuals form a psychophysical unity and, moreover, as social creatures, our individual selves together form a complex mental network. The state of consciousness of the individual and of society as a whole is a key factor in the state of the world as a whole, and the therapeutic potential of psychedelics can provide an important impetus for change for the better in a world of depression and loss of a sense of purpose in life."
“Psychedelics are part of humankind's history. They have been used as a remedy for soul, a tool which helps us see the problem from a different angle, a tool for improvement of one's creativity and an assistance in coping with things we can't change. It's about time for a paradigm shift. Psychedelics - a changed state of consciousness, help move not only individuals but the civilization for the better. I believe that responsible, conscious, humble and legalized approach to these substances is a real game changer for our society.“
„I support psychedelic research because I see its potential not only in treatment of the ongoing mental illness pandemic, but in raising the collective consciousness as well. That is the development which we as humans have no chance of surviving without.”
„Throughout the years, we often lose our authenticity, because we live in certain cultural and social patterns. This can result in mental chaos and potentially have negative effects on our health. I believe that psychedelics offer a way for us to reconnect with ourselves, expand our state of consciousness and harmonize our internal processes. Those begin with us alone. I believe, however, that those processes can help move the whole society to much needed transformations for the better.”
„Psychedelics are proven to be effective in the treatment of anxiety, depression and personal trauma. I believe that individual inner changes and the personal development that occurs during the therapy have a beneficial effect on the individual and those around him. I consider therapy with expanded states of consciousness using psychedelics under the guidance of experienced therapists to be a today's vision for the future. I believe in a modern transformation of the legal system that will allow for responsible work with psychedelics and further research.”
The operation of the PSYRES Foundation is covered exclusively by the support of individual Patrons. Donor contributions are intended exclusively for the supported scientific projects. Patrons thus act as the main supporters of the PSYRES’ activities. Without them, the foundation would not be able to carry out activities aimed at fulfilling our goal - the financial security of the Czech scientific research in the field of psychedelics.
Patronage includes exclusive status within the organisation and regular information on news and participation in organized events. A dinner with researchers and Patrons takes place once a year.
If you want to join our Patrons, contact the CEO of the Foundation directly.
