Getting Higher: The Banned Lecture
Time & Location
About The Event
Plato claimed that the unexamined life is not worth living, and to examine life surely we must explore awareness itself? Over two millennia later Timothy Leary compared psychedelic drugs to the telescope in terms of their capacity to reveal hidden aspects of our minds. As psychedelic experience struggles to break free of the Drug War paradigm how can we integrate psychedelic use within our existing institutions and culture?
While suitably distanced research work on psychedelics is increasingly acceptable, personal engagement with these substances often isn't. From mainstream medicine to academia and to politics - everywhere psychedelic substances are the teacher that dare not speak its name. Join us for an evening with psychonaut, occultist and writer Julian Vayne to explore these issues.
Julian was recently banned from addressing students at the University of Oxford because of his involvement with psychedelic drugs. He is the author of Getting Higher: The Manual of Psychedelic Ceremony and sits on the board of the Journal of Psychedelic Studies.
