We invite you to be a part of this full day of ethnobotanical knowledge sharing and discussion on psychedelic plants & culture. It will be an indoor community gathering made up of keynote lectures, panel discussions, workshops and market space. EGA is a not-for-profit educational organisation that exists to provide opportunities for critical thinking about psychedelic plants and related compounds. Help us share the seeds.

About Entheogenesis Australis:
For over a decade Entheogenesis Australis has provided a major meeting place for ethnobotanical enthusiasts and specialists in Australia to share information and form a national meeting point for the community. The aims of the EGA conference are to address the issues relating to drug use from social, cultural and traditional perspectives. Past conference programs have drawn on covered diverse topics including therapy, biology, pharmacology, psychology, neuroscience, anthropology, botany, visionary art, culture, politics, law and more, to provide a realistic context of the role drugs and altered states play in the modern world.
Altered states of consciousness have long been a fundamental part of human culture, and as our world becomes increasingly fast-paced, alternative modalities are becoming ever more significant and consciously explored. If you’ve ever asked yourself: “has the ‘war on drugs’ created more problems than it has tried to solve?” or “is MDMA really a more dangerous drug than alcohol?” – then EGA is the place for you.
The Entheogenesis Australis (EGA) team is a collective of people from many different backgrounds, areas of expertise, and experiences, who volunteer their time to produce the symposia, associated events and online presence. The EGA symposium is an international forum where we share knowledge and discuss ethnobotanical research and policy reform in Australia around medicinal plants and compounds.
Entheogenesis Australis is completely funded by the community, and currently receives no funding from government, or government-funded organisations.
All funds go directly to the symposium’s production costs, and future botanical, educational and artistic projects. The board members and directors of Entheogenesis Australis Inc. are not currently paid a salary for their efforts in organising EGA events and related media.
