Uncovering the Mind: What can we learn from psychedelics?
Time & Location
About the Event
The term 'psychedelic' was first coined by Humphry Osmond in the 1960’s to mean "mind-revealing". In recent times we have begun to witness a more systematic exploration of psychedelic compounds. Studies from institutions including Johns Hopkins University and Imperial College London have shown potential therapeutic benefits of psychedelic therapy in treating conditions such as depression, addiction and anxiety.
Historically, psychedelics have been used by ancient cultures around the world, from the mysterious "Soma" mentioned in the Rig Veda to “kykeon” used in Ancient Greece and South American “Ayahuasca”. However, In Britain they remain "Class A drugs". What role could policy-makers play in the creation of a sustainable psychedelic space? If so, how might society integrate psychedelic use sustainably?
