PSYCHEDELIC FEMINISM

“Psychedelic Feminism” is a term coined and concept originated by Cosmic Sister's founder, Zoe Helene, to describe an environmental sub-genre of feminism that embraces the power of psychedelics from a women’s healing, empowerment, self-liberation 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.

Our Psychedelic Feminism educational advocacy initiatives 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).

Our quintet of interconnected educational advocacy projects are; Cosmic Sisters of Cannabis and Cosmic Sister Women of the Psychedelic Renaissance educational initiatives, and the Cosmic Sister Plant Spirit Grant. The Cosmic Sister Emerging Voices Award supports individuals who demonstrate outstanding potential in the field of psychedelics (and cannabis) to strengthen their visibility in the community. We also offer Cosmic Sister Special Talent Scholarships for outstanding women to explore unique educational opportunities.
“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.

PSYCHEDELIC FEMINISM GRANTS + AWARDS


COSMIC SISTER PLANT SPIRIT GRANT

The Cosmic Sister Plant Spirit Grant is a merit-based program that supports outstanding women from all walks of life and in different times of life as they experience the profound healing and consciousness-expanding journey of ayahuasca ceremony with Indigenous healers 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.
