Entry £7 /£5 Concessions, Arrive 6pm for a 6:30pm Start – Wine availableBeyond the current resurgence in psychedelic studies on healing specific conditions, we will explore the restoration of basic freedoms: the connection to the Divine, dimensions of the self, re-connection to the natural world, and the right to use these tools for scientific and technical problems. We will review how psychedelics have aided physicists, mathematicians, architects, etc. and present the first research findings on micro-doses that seem to act as all-chakra enhancers. Participants will have the chance to participate in an international user survey project.
