Event Details

The Psychedelic Press is turning 10 years old on the 1 December 2018!

To celebrate, the crew, authors and various friends in the psychedelic community are going on a speaking tour.

Writers on Drugs is a celebratory series of full-day and evening events that address psychedelics in all their multifarious guises - from the latest cutting-edge science, to religious and magical thinking, ecology, and the role they've played in the history and culture of the world. These extraordinary substances are deeply woven into the fabric of human life; a fact that Psychedelic Press publications have always explored, and which our speakers and authors would like to share with you!

 


 

EDINBURGH SPEAKERS:


Nikki Wyrd: ‘Psychedelic Ecology: What Lives in our Heads?’

Nikki enjoys helping people communicate their thoughts. She is a director of the charity ‘Breaking Convention’ (a biennial conference on psychedelics), Editor of the Psychedelic Press Journal, runs The Universe Machine publishing house, and works as a freelance proofreader/copyeditor; her assistance is found in most of the notable psychedelic books of recent years. With Julian Vayne, she co-authored The Book of Baphomet, which beautifully blends scientific rationale with magickal actions. She has a growing reputation as an inspirational retreat leader. Her past roles include British Isles Section Head of the Chaos Magic order The Illuminates of Thanateros, Ecology graduate, bass player in an all-women punk band, and single mother.

Danny Nemu: ‘Getting High with the Most High: Entheogens in the Bible’

Danny is a writer, activist and ayahuasca researcher with academic background in the History and Philosophy of Medicine. He first encountered ayahuasca when living in Japan, and eventually followed the trail back to the source of Daime in the Brazilian Amazon. He was bitten by a sandfly, which proved to be a great teacher. The resulting 8 month battle with a necrotic parasite provided a window into Daime ritual technologies, and an opportunity to explore the meaning of illness and health from a different point of view. His books include Science Revealed and Neuro-Apocalypse

Julian Vayne: 'Psychedelic Ceremony: Spiritual Mindhacking for the 21st Century'

Julian is a British occultist with over three decades of experience of esoteric culture: from Druidry to Chaos Magick, from indigenous American shamanism through to Freemasonry and Wicca. During this time Julian has written for numerous underground esoteric journals, contributed to various collections of essays, led workshops, retreats and facilitated a wide range of group ceremonies. He is a founding member of Transform Drug Policy Foundation and Chair of The Friends of The Boscastle Museum of Witchcraft, and his books include: Pharmakon: Drugs and the ImaginationMagick Works: Stories of occultism in theory and practice and Deep Magic Begins here…  and Getting Higher: The Manual of Psychedelic Ceremony. He’s also co-authored  Now That’s What I Call Chaos Magick (with Greg Humphries),The Book of Baphomet (with Nikki Wyrd) and most recently Chaos Craft (with Steve Dee). 

Reanne Crane: ‘Recipes for Living and Loving: Laura Huxley’s Psychedelic Self-Help’

Reanne is a PhD candidate based at the University of Kent, within the Faculty of English. Her research is centred around the philosophy of language vis-a-vis altered/alternative states of consciousness, focusing on ‘affective openness’ and the power of poetic language. She has a background in teaching and translation, with a B.A in Mandarin Chinese and English Literature, and an M.A in Contemporary Literature.
