UPCOMING L.A. PANEL: A Conversation Exploring Psychedelics and Consciousness

Waking up with Psychedelics will be an honest discussion and potentially controversial evening.

This event explores whether there is a meritorious relationship existing between ancient wisdom traditions and psychedelics.

Are mind-altering substances [psychedelic actually means "mind-making"] a legitimate means of personal transformation?

It’s inarguable that many Westerners have found spirituality through the use of psychoactive substances.

It’s also true that practitioners with established contemplative disciplines incorporate mind-expanding plant medicines and chemicals as a tool to more deeply explore their consciousness.

Buddhist Geeks' Vince Horn
Beyond the mystical aspects scientists are researching the potential benefits of psychedelics as therapeutic agents for mental health issues including depression, anxiety, addiction, and end-of-life care.

On Sunday May 13, 2018, 7:15 PM-9:30 PM, Vincent Horn, Buddhist Geeks Podcast host, will moderate a panel conversation that will include two Western pioneers of Eastern traditions.
Spring  Washam
POC East Bay's Spring Washam
Ram Dass, the legendary 1960s spiritual teacher, will be live-streaming from Maui, Hawaii.

He will join Trudy Goodman, LA’s senior mindfulness teacher and founder of Insight LA.

They are partnering with author, teacher and healer Spring Washam and UCLA psychedelic researcher Dr. Charles Grob.
