In the last decade, the interest and use of ayahuasca has expanded exponentially. This phenomenon has both activated the advancement of scientific research into its effects, risks and therapeutic potential, as well as serious legal, ethical and sustainability challenges. The World Ayahuasca Conference 2014, organized by the ICEERS Foundation, aims to be a multidisciplinary event that brings together leading scientists, legal experts, practitioners. environmentalists and other experts involved in the ayahuasca field, facilitating the interchange of experience and knowledge, and the birth of new synergies and collaborations through the formal presentations and round tables, workshops and debates, as well as the informal events of the conference.

    The language of the conference will both be Spanish and English and there will be simultaneous translation in the main room during the whole event. The conference will take place in the Palau de Congressos of Ibiza. Address: C/Salvador Camacho n¬ļ11 - Santa Eul√†ria des Riu.>

    Film Forum

    During the World Ayahuasca Conference 2014 we will be screening a selection of feature length documentaries and shorts about ayahuasca. We received over 20 submissions from over the whole world that deal with different aspects of the subject matter: traditional indigenous uses, environmental aspects, healing journeys of people who are followed through their experiences, personal accounts, ethnographic documents, science, etc.

    Among the selection there are several new documentaries that will officially premier at the conference, with the presence of the director and in some cases also some of the characters of the films.
