In recent years, trauma has become a buzzword. Oftentimes, different kinds of trauma get grouped together, from ancestral trauma to sexual trauma, systemic trauma, and acute PTSD. In the psychedelic community, we often talk about trauma as being the underlying cause of mental health indications, from depression to anxiety and beyond. There’s this belief that people receive mental health diagnoses, but really what’s going on, on a deeper level, is that their trauma is manifesting as this diagnosis and that psychedelics can get to the root cause of it. 

Meanwhile, MDMA, ketamine, psilocybin, and ayahuasca, among other substances, have all shown promise for the healing of treatment-resistant post-traumatic stress disorder. But how do you know if you or a loved one has it? What even is trauma? And might a psychedelic journey be the answer? We also talk in the psychedelic community about the connection between individual, communal, and planetary healing—this idea that if an individual heals their trauma, that they then might become a more conscientious global citizen and begin to heal the problematic systems that perpetuate trauma more broadly. But is this true? And what might the limitations of this belief be? We cover all this and more with some of the leading voices in psychedelics on trauma at DoubleBlind’s first summit.
