The Future of Psychedelics in Australia (Voicecraft Live 3)
In February 2023 Australia legalised the medicinal use of MDMA and psilocybin in specific therapeutic contexts. But what does 'psychedelic' really mean? And what does a truly wise personal and cultural relationship with psychedelics ask of us, individually and collectively?
Hosted by transformative philosopher Tim Adalin, this is Voicecraft Live: a context for real conversations about matters of profound importance in our time. Welcoming hearts and minds, this participatory experience invites facilitated group conversation intermixed with spotlight dialogues with invited guests who have unique insight to share.
