“It’s like TED talks for Psychedelics”

The Palenque Norte Speaker Series is a series of lectures focused on altered states of consciousness, psychedelic medicines, and the mystical experience. We will be returning to the Burning Man festival for the first time since 2007, and need your help to make this happen. We’ve put together an amazing schedule of 22 speakers across 4 days which include luminaries such as Alex and Allyson Grey, Paul Stamets, Daniel Pinchbeck, Rick Doblin and many more. The talks will hosted by Camp Above the Limit and be located in the Crystal Cavern, a 40’ dome at 9:15 & B.

Palenque Norte History

The Palenque Norte journey began with the legendary Entheobotany Conferences held at the Chan Kah hotel near the ancient Mayan ruins just outside of Palenque, Mexico. There, Terence McKenna, Jonathan Ott, Ann & Sasha Shulgin, and a host of other psychedelic luminaries passed along many insights, discoveries, and wild tales to the fortunate Tribe members who were there. And it was at the end of the pool where Terence McKenna gave some of his last talks at the Chan Kah.

Years later, then in 2003, a few alumni from those conferences decided to have a "Palenque reunion" at the Burning Man Festival, and so we organized a theme camp and lecture series to continue the Palenque tradition.
