“Music, community, and connection have always played an important role in sacred ceremonies and are integral to psychedelic-assisted therapy and integration,” says Payton Nyquvest, Founder and CEO, Numinus. “Through the music as medicine by Numinus series, we celebrate an emerging genre of meditative music and explore the role music can play in the healing process, while building connections within a community.”
“Psychedelic therapies are legal across the world, and yet it feels like no one is talking about the music that accompanies them,” says Jon Hopkins. “In Native psychedelic ceremonies,” he adds, “music is as important as medicine, and has been for thousands of years. Music is how you navigate through space.”
Following the recent announcement of Numinus’ planned expansion into the United States, music as medicine by Numinus will be hosted in various cities across the United States and Canadacelebrating Numinus’ arrival in the United States and strengthening his community in his home country, Canada.

“We are delighted to be part of the Music as medicine by Numinus series of events. The intention is to create a safe container for deep listening,” says Justin Boreta. “That’s how this type of music should be experienced.”
