Rick Doblin, PhD Interview and Live Q&A
Time & Location
About the Event
Rick Doblin discusses what led him to work on legalizing psychedelics for creative and healing purposes. His psychedelic experiences in college inspired him to become a psychotherapist, but criminalization of these substances compelled him to work towards their legalization. He offers a historical understanding of the war on drugs, the omissions of negative experiences in Leary’s Good Friday Experiment, and the need to embrace the challenging experiences that lead to lasting transformation of world views. He suggests that psychedelics can help people work through their fears to find new ways of thinking about the challenges we face, including generational conflicts and healing deep traumas.
