From Religion News we meet Moana Meadow, a hospice chaplain in California, is pioneering the field of psychedelic chaplaincy.

She is on a mission to bridge chaplaincy and the work of accompanying people under the influence of psychedelics as they approach death.

Her goal is to help people through the perceptual changes brought on by psychedelic drugs, which can be similar to pivotal moments like marriage, childbirth, or death. Academic institutions across the U.S. are launching training programs in which spiritual practitioners can become qualified psychedelic facilitators, paving the way for a new field of psychedelic chaplaincy.
