It’s hard to deny the recent surge in clinical and educational interest in psychedelics. With shows like Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia, conferences like Psychedelic Science in California, and local groups like The Psychedelic Society of Brooklyn, the study and research of the benefits (and risks) of psychedelics has grown leaps and bounds in recent years.
And while most of these groups and organizations are relatively new, this year marks the 10th annual Horizons: Perspectives on Psychedelics, a forum in New York City that examines the role of psychedelic drugs in science, healing, culture and spirituality happening this weekend, Oct 7 – 9, at Cooper Union.
Hosted by an eponymous 501c(3) not-for-profit educational charity, this year’s Horizons speakers include authors, scientists, doctors, artists and scholars, including…
Michael Mithoefer will discuss the nature of the therapeutic process in our approach to MDMA-assisted psychotherapy on Saturday, 10/8 at 11:55am.
Jessica Nielson, Ph.D. will be speaking on the topic of the benefits and risks of using Ayahuasca for treating PTSD on Sunday, 10/9 at 1:55pm.
Horizons kicks off with a reception at the Rubin Museum on Friday night, and the conference itself is held at Cooper Union starting on Saturday morning. Tickets are available at HorizonsNYC.org
