Announcing Horizons 2008

Horizons is a forum for learning about psychedelics. It seeks to open a fresh dialogue about psychedelics and challenges society to rethink their role in history, culture, medicine, spirituality and art. After a successful debut in 2007, it is now an annual event. Its dates for 2008 are September 19-21. Speakers have been announced and tickets are on sale!

Psychedelics are a unique class of psychoactive drugs that have been used by humans for thousands of years. Millions of people in every corner of the globe have used them to alter their consciousness in search of introspective contemplation, spiritual insights, creative exploration and physical and psychological healing.

In the 1950s and early 1960s, legal research with psychedelics spurred important discoveries in science and psychology. During the 1960s, psychedelics entered worldwide popular culture. Fueled by the wild social dogmas of the era, recreational use become commonplace. Questions about their safety, medical value, history and implications in politics and culture were unfortunately answered with numerous myths spread by both their users and the media.

Times are changing. The freewheeling sixties are now a distant memory and the hype of the millennial rave fever has finally been laid to rest. Now, a small group of dedicated researchers and activists has orchestrated a renaissance in psychedelic research that is re-shaping the public's understanding of these unique substances. Horizons brings together the brightest minds and boldest voices of this movement to share their research, insights and dreams for the future.

Yep, I'm going. Posted about it in the gathering forum but not too many people seemed interested. You thinking about going?

I went last year and it was very interesting.

Too bad! :smile:

Last year this awesome professor talked about mdma research for ptsd in crime victims.

Someone else talked about psilocybin for helping to resolve end of life issues in terminally ill cancer patients, etc. It was really informative and heartening to hear about actual medical studies that prove the effectiveness of entheogens for some types of mental illness.
