Presentations


"On Revelations and Revolutions in Ayahuasca Rituals of Palestinians and Israelis" from Breaking Convention 2021 (the intermission)
"Psychedelic Sociality" from "Symposium on Psychedelic Science" by Oxford Psychedelic Society. Psychedelics have a long history of bringing people together, facilitating intense shared experiences, and revitalizing cultures. This social dimension of the use of psychedelics—psychedelic sociality—should be considered in the current mainstreaming, as therein lies their potential to support change in individual therapy and beyond. The talk presents evidence regarding the social and relational components of psychedelic use and presents a biopsychosocial perspective on psychedelics' mechanism of action.
