Workshop Details

Digital Raign’s X series is inspired by Esalen's history of pioneering vital conversations ahead of adoption by mainstream culture. In today's world of exponential technology, the X Series explores topics including how to influence tech's trajectory toward the betterment of life, and ways we can re-invent our social systems as new realities continuously appear.

Digital Raign’s Next Gen Therapeutics think tank includes both experiential and conversational sessions with a focus on actionable outcomes. We will explore the way virtual reality (VR) and entheogens are revolutionizing therapeutic practices. Psychedelic therapy is experiencing a renaissance with research studies taking place at NYU, UCLA, and John Hopkins, and legalization underway in numerous states. While VR technology was invented over 50 years ago, recent developments have brought about a resurgence in the exploration of its therapeutic applications, which include PTSD, depression, addiction, anxiety, isolation, phobias, pain distraction, Alzheimer's, and dementia.

We will explore how these therapies can be implemented for the betterment of society, and identify the way projects can be crafted and a community fostered to realize the power of these technologies for the benefit of humanity.

This is an invitation to leaders in health care and emerging therapeutic industries to convene and co-create positive, impactful strategies focused on tech and psychedelic therapies to be more rapidly adopted by the health care industry to help more people with the health and emotional issues facing society.
