Fest300/Everfest traveled to Envision Festival in Costa Rica to learn about psychedelic first aid and how integral it can be to the festival experience. In this original video we share the 4 Pillars of the Zendo Project and the principles of harm reduction at festivals. This video is an in-depth follow-up to our 2015 article "I Did Psychedelic First Aid at a Festival in Costa Rica."
