Event description
Michael Pollan on the new science of psychedelics and what it teaches us - in conversation with John Crace

About this Event

Join 5x15 on a mind-altering adventure with the pioneering, genre-busting writer Michael Pollan. Delving into states of consciousness, looking at the latest brain science and visiting the thriving underground community of psychedelic therapists, we’ll immerse ourselves in what is a major new field of therapeutic research.

In his thrilling chronicle How to Change Your Mind, we meet the scientists, professionals, seekers and patients exploring the effects of LSD on the mind, creativity and personal experience and discover what the new science of psychedelics teaches us about consciousness, dying, addiction, depression, and transcendence.

A profound shift in the public discussion around psychedelics and their positive, therapeutic affects is taking place across the US and UK. It has always been clear that psychedelics offer a paradigm shifting tool, and now with increased funding, psychedelic research is becoming mainstream. It is set to have a major impact on science and psychiatry, mental health, neuroscience and social science.

Michael will be in conversation with leading Guardian journalist John Crace.
