Psychedelics can produce an ineffable experience of clarity in a person – but are we too focused on describing the indescribable? We have empirical descriptions of the neurobiological correlates, subjective states, and behavioral changes following the use of psychedelics. But what if we’re just being shy about having bona fide insight into the nature of reality?

Join us for an in-depth discussion with Katherine MacLean, PhD, regarding psychedelics, the nature of mind, religion, and the limits of scientific accounts of the psychedelic experience, on June 15th @ Art Cafe + Bar.

Katherine MacLean, PhD is the director of the Psychedelic Education and Continuing Care Program at the Center for Optimal Living. A trained research scientist, Katherine has done research on mindfulness and well-being, and has worked with Dr. Rolland Griffiths researching how psilocybin (magic mushrooms) can positively effect lasting change in personality.
