New Guide: “Towards Better Ayahuasca Practices”

22.10.2019

The search for information about ayahuasca tends to be a hazardous task. There are plenty of writings, videos, studies and books relatively accessible online. However, it is common for knowledge to varied in terms of quality and rigor and information is often not comprehensive.

To address this gap, ICEERS is launching a new informative guide on ayahuasca, which was commissioned by the Department of Health of the Generalitat de Catalunya. “Towards Better Ayahuasca Practices: A Guide for Organizers and Participants” is a compilation of basic ethical and security standards for the use of ayahuasca in non-Amazonian contexts and deals with areas of legality and both individual and collective responsibility.

To our knowledge, this is the first time that any health department in the world has published a safety guide for ayahuasca. In this regard, we want to thank all the people and collectives that, over decades, have paved the way and contributed with much of the information that has made the publication of this guide possible. This is a collective victory and a recognition of the value of previous resources that were stigmatized or of low quality.

ICEERS also extends our thanks to the Sub-Directorate General of Drug Dependencies of the Department of Health of the Generalitat of Catalunya for their commitment to this type of collaboration and their willingness to be at the forefront of emerging public health phenomena with the goal of minimizing risks and maximizing benefits.

The guide is over 40 pages and is available in three languages: Catalan, Spanish and English. It can be downloaded for free in PDF format from the Canal Drogues website of the Generalitat de Catalunya:
