Congratulations Cosmic Sister Emerging Voices Award (CS EVA) recipient Taylor Hayes (@psy.nurse)!

Alabama-based Taylor Hayes is applying psychedelic medicines and holistic healing modalities to Western psychiatry. She has completed the Fundamental & Advanced Modern Shamanism courses through Blue Morpho Ayahuasca Center in Peru and coursework at the Ayahuasca Foundation's Riosbo Research Center in Peru and has studied with traditional healers in the Andes Mountains. She was part of the world's first women's psilocybin retreat at MycoMeditations in Jamaica.

Taylor is developing the nonprofit International Association of Psychedelic Nursing (IAPN) and is a founder of Hope Network, a legal psilocybin mushroom wellness retreat in Brazil. She is a founder of Healing Hearts Hemp Scrubs, an ecologically oriented fashion company focused on the empowerment and celebration of traditional cultures around the world. Active within the American Cannabis Nurses Association, Taylor is a proponent for medical cannabis in Alabama. She teaches jiu-jitsu and yoga to hospitalized adolescents.

“I have long-term visions of a health care system that is expanded to include psychedelic medicines and other holistic healing modalities such as yoga, art, and meditation,” she says. She hopes “to help to make a change in nursing practice standards based on clinical evidence to support the health and wellbeing of the suffering psychiatric patient population.”

In partnership with Spirit Plant Medicine Conference in Vancouver, BC, Nov 1 - 3, 2019, the Cosmic Sister Emerging Voices Award (CS EVA) increases visibility for talented women in the field of psychedelics and cannabis who work tirelessly in supportive, behind-the-scenes roles, as well as talented newcomers who shine in spotlight positions.
