Psychedelic Alchemy Speaker Series: LSD & the Alchemy of Modernity with Erik Davis, PhD

August 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Today’s psychedelic enthusiasts seem equally fascinated with ancient plant medicines and the latest pharmaceutical patents.

But what about good old LSD?

Acid remains the most influential psychedelic in the modern world, but we hear very little about it now. Why? And what happens when we look at LSD’s legacy not just historically, but mythopoetically? What if LSD is an alchemical sacrament whose wild underground lineage offers precisely the sort of sacred values that might help guide us through the maelstrom of our moment?

Join us for an exciting evening with renowned psychedelic scholar Erik Davis, PhD as he wrestles with these questions!
