Description
Psychedelics have been an important part of human culture for thousands of years, being used in ritual, healing, divination and—as of late—scientific research. Did you know that psilocybin (the active ingredient in mushrooms), LSD, DMT and ayahuasca may have important therapeutic properties for the treatment of depression, anxiety and addictions? They're also being used as important tools to help scientists understand the human consciousness and what makes us feel connected to nature and to other people. Our resident psychedelic expert will explore the exciting possibilities that psychedelics can offer us, all backed up by current global research. Have your questions ready for the Q&A!
