Long after the psychedelic revolution of the ’60s and the academics and hippies that experimented with their mind-altering effects, a group of dedicated practitioners, scholars and artists are keeping alive the sacred practice of using medicinals to facilitate the opening of the mind.
In May 2017, Spirit Rock hosted a panel of experts to talk about the intersection of psychedelics and the dharma. Special guests include: Stanislav Grof, Rick Doblin, Ralph Metzner, Aurianna Joy, Don Lattin, James Fadiman, Erik Davis, Alex Grey, Allyson Grey, Michael Stone and more. Guest speakers address such topics as psychedelic medicine, philosophical & existential exploration, current findings of the scientific community, as well as a more nuanced and slightly critical view of the place of psychedelics in healing the mind from suffering.
Though this recorded webcast is in the format of a lecture series, we will break for intermittent sitting sessions during the 3-1/2 hour long talks, including a break for a shared lunch.
Date: Sunday, July 15
Time: 10am – 4pm
Venue: Home of a sangha member (address will be shared at time of registration)

We hope to see you there.
