PSYCHEDELIC FEMINISM

“Psychedelic Feminism” is a term coined by Cosmic Sister's founder, Zoe Helene, to describe a sub-genre of eco-feminism that embraces the power of psychedelics from a women’s empowerment perspective. Women have been forced to work within a broken system with an extreme power imbalance for millennia. This imbalance has warped and continues to warp the way we are evolving as a species. Our voices matter.

Cosmic Sister's Psychedelic Feminism educational advocacy initiative encourage women to explore the wilderness within, where they can grow, heal and learn more deeply about themselves, and where they can to explore core feminist issues in fresh and exciting ways. We promote intentional journeying with natural psychedelics in a safe, legal “set and setting,” and we help to bring women’s voices to the forefront in the field of psychedelics (and beyond).

We currently offer an interconnected quartet of merit-based Psychedelic Feminism educational advocacy grants—Women of the Psychedelic Renaissance and Cosmic Sisters of Cannabis and the original, immersive Plant Spirit Grant—support women’s voices in psychedelics (and cannabis) culture. The new Emerging Voices Award supports individuals who demonstrate outstanding potential in the field of psychedelics (and cannabis) to strengthen their visibility in the community.

“When women support women, our power to create positive change rises in the collective consciousness. When more men choose to be allies, and that is demonstrated through actions, then hope doesn’t feel like wishful thinking. We can foster women’s voices until a true balance emerges, and only then will the psychedelic journey be fully reflected in our community.” - Zoe Helene, founder, Cosmic Sister

DONATIONS for our educational grants are fully tax-deductible through Cosmic Sister’s fiscal sponsor, the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS).

The projects have been featured in a wide range of MEDIA.
