Psychedelic Conversations with Dr. Neal Goldsmith

Friday, June 30th

07:00pm

Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture (53 Prospect Park W, Brooklyn)

Join us for an evening of conversation and sharing around the psychospiritual use of psychedelics, facilitated by psychotherapist and author, Dr. Neal Goldsmith.

This will be an intimate event in a nice quiet space, with attendance capped at 20 people to encourage sharing. You’re also encouraged to come with an experience you’d like help integrating into your life, or a topic you’d like to discuss. Some example topics listed below:

-Why do psychedelics give pain relief?
-The desire for change is a reflection of the problem, not of the solution.
-Psychedelics can trigger insight, but behavior change takes time, and in this culture, such realignment is often harder to sustain than we acknowledge.
-How regulated should the use of psychedelics become?
-If the results of the current research are positive and the outstanding issues are addressed, how will psychedelics be integrated into medicine, science, and society — and how might that change the world?

Neal M. Goldsmith, Ph.D., is a social psychologist, licensed psychotherapist, public speaker and author of Psychedelic Healing: The Promise of Entheogens for Psychotherapy and Spiritual Development. Dr. Goldsmith has extensive experience working with individuals seeking to fully benefit from and integrate the lessons learned during psychedelic experiences.

Tickets are $20. Doors will open at 6:30 and we will begin at 7:00 and go until 10. Note that there is a strict attendance cap of 20 people, so be sure to buy your ticket ahead of time! Please note that no psychedelics should be imbibed before or at, or brought to this event, as they are still illegal.

Please check out our full list of topics, and if any pique your interest feel free to bring it up: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1IfJrAQKchCeu-frAJqIZ6Xk4EI-sS_fyyD8kzgPbzTk/edit?usp=sharing
