Zevic Mishor / Psychedelic Support
After providing psychedelic support for the patrons of Boom Festival in Portugal, Zevic Mishor saw the need for a formalised document on how to help those in trouble. Combining his background in neuroscience and psychology he has learnt to aid people stuck in psychedelic limbo using techniques which focus on empathetic responses. A PHD candidate at the University of Sydney, he compiles the available knowledge on facilitating the necessary support services, and collates it into the ‘Manual of Psychedelic Support’ project.
