What do psychedelic forms of healing offer to an expanded view of human nature?

April 18, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm UTC-5

All forms of healing rest on assumptions about human nature. Psychotherapy and Buddhist meditation share many of these assumptions while departing in significant ways. As psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy is gaining interest in the psychiatric community, it’s clinical efficacy raises challenging questions about our fundamental nature. What do these non-traditional forms of healing share, and what do they suggest about the nature of psychological suffering, healing, and our capacity to live fully, with wisdom and understanding?

This live Zoom discussion is the second offering in the 2023 CMC/IMP Mindfulness & Psychotherapy Exploratory Conversations Series, which will explore influences on the practice of psychotherapy and healing originating from various contemplative traditions and other non-clinical sources. Attendance is free and pre-registration is required. This event will be recorded and available to all registrants. Please visit the Institute for Meditation & Psychotherapy Certificate Program for certification details.
