Join Brad Burge for the live, interactive video course, “Psychedelic Science and Spirituality: How to Apply What We’re Learning to Your Life.” Discover how to apply insights from psychedelic science to your life with leading experts in the fields of psychedelic research, medicine, and spirituality. Brad Burge of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) has invited a diverse and fascinating group of experts to help you understand, integrate, and learn to use insights from this transformative field. They include: Rick Doblin, Allan Badiner, Kokyo Henkel, Ryan LeCompte, Nicholas Blackston, Sitaramaya Sita, Julane Andries, and Kevin Franciotti.
Scientists around the world are now exploring the risks and benefits of psychedelics—such as MDMA, LSD, psilocybin, ayahuasca, ibogaine, and more—to explore consciousness, recover from trauma, enhance creativity, and enrich our spiritual lives. While psychedelics are still illegal outside of research in most countries, we can still apply what we are discovering to how we understand and live our lives. In this course, you’ll explore:
- What does research say about the connection between psychedelics, spiritual experiences, and healing from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), addiction, and anxiety?
- How are psychedelics being studied for their ability to help enrich our spiritual lives?
- How do indigenous cultures around the world use psychedelics in spiritual and religious ceremonies, and how are these uses changing in the 21st century?
- Is there a way to integrate psychedelic experiences with Buddhism or other ancient spiritual traditions?
- Can psychedelic therapy help people reduce their fear of death and dying?
- How can you use insights from psychedelic research to improve your relationships and spiritual practices?
In this unique course, you will explore the frontier of current knowledge about psychedelics and spirituality, learn how researchers are studying these fascinating compounds, and discover how you can help create contexts for the safe and beneficial use of psychedelics for healing, spirituality, and personal growth.
This course is your chance to go deeper, and find out how to directly apply insights from modern science and ancient spiritual traditions to your own healing, exploration, and personal growth. Recent years have seen a marked shift in popular attitudes toward psychedelics. In the word of MAPS founder Rick Doblin, “The last gasp of the Baby Boomers will be the legalization of marijuana and psychedelics.” Over these 5 sessions, you will explore the implications of this new frontier of psychedelic use for your personal experience with some of the world’s most informed and thoughtful experts.
You will be part of the discussion, able to ask your questions on camera, just like a Skype call. If you happen to miss a live session, you can view a video recording at any time. These sessions will be filled with provocative information, expansive first-hand testimonials, and practical advice from teachers, scientists, and leading advocates in this cutting-edge field.
