PSYCHEDELIC FEMINISM

“Psychedelic Feminism” is a term Cosmic Sister's founder Zoe Helene coined 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 trio of merit-based educational advocacy grants Psychedelic Feminism—Women of the Psychedelic Renaissance, Cosmic Sisters of Cannabis and the original, immersive Plant Spirit Grant—support women’s voices in psychedelics and cannabis. The original Plant Spirit Grant is funded internally. Donations for Women of the Psychedelic Renaissance educational grants are fully tax-deductible through Cosmic Sister’s fiscal sponsor, the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS).

“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

We have been featured in a wide range of Media, inducing Forbes, Playboy, VICE, VICE | Broadly, VICE | Tonic, Bust Magazine, LA Weekly, LA Yoga, Boston Yoga, ABC Australia, New Zealand Radio, Huffington Post, AlterNet, Organic Spa Magazine, Organic Authority, Utne Reader, MassRoots, Weedmaps, Civilized, Lift, Culture, Revelist, Oyster, Reset, and more.

THE PSYCHEDELIC FEMINISM GRANTS


PLANT SPIRIT GRANT

Our Plant Spirit Grant is a merit-based program that supports outstanding women from all walks of life and in different times of life to experience the healing and consciousness-expanding journey of ayahuasca ceremony in the Peruvian Amazon. Ayahuasca, a traditional psychedelic brew, is not only legal in Peru, it is designated as a “Cultural Treasure” by the Peruvian government.

Our Women of the Psychedelic Renaissance educational advocacy projects covers women in psychedelics, and helps women educate the public honestly about the risks and benefits of psychedelics and responsible work with sacred plants (and fungi) in transformational, self-liberating, consciousness-expanding mind-body-spirit work with natural psychedelic medicines such as ayahuasca, cannabis, peyote, iboga and psilocybin mushrooms. We currently offer grants in support of presentations, writing, and photography.
