Psychedelics: In Spirituality and Religion
Join us for a deep dive into the mystical facets of psychedelics and how they've helped people discover their soul’s true purpose. Drawing from his personal journey and anthropological research, author Jerry Brown will share explorations into psychedelic's rich religious history, illustrating examples with stunning photographs of magic mushrooms in medieval Christian art. Learn about his studies on how psychedelics can lead to life-changing insights for passion, purpose and healing; and explore a future where psychedelics affect and form spirituality and religion.
Jerry B. Brown, Ph.D. is an author, anthropologist and activist. From 1972 to 2014, he served as founding professor of anthropology at Florida International University in Miami, where he taught a course on “Psychedelics and Culture.” He is coauthor with Julie M. Brown of The Psychedelic Gospels: The Secret History of Hallucinogens in Christianity (2016). He is also coauthor of “Sacred Plants and the Gnostic Church,” Journal of Ancient History (2014) and of the forthcoming “Entheogens in Christian Art: Wasson, Allegro and the Psychedelic Gospels,” Journal of Psychedelic Studies (September 2019).
