The Science of Ayahuasca: Hallucinogenic panacea or tourist rip off?

Until very recently it was an obscure hallucinogenic brew from the Amazon jungle, but now Ayahuasca has fast become the most intriguing beverage on the planet. Droves of Westerners are increasingly heading out to purpose built retreats in South America in search of professional inspiration, physical and psychological healing, and spiritual insight. Are such motives based on desperate hope and an opportunistic tourist industry? Or are there well researched effective uses for ayahuasca, that back up the growing hype that it is a panacea for all 21st century ills.

This talk pours the known research into a big pot, boils it down, and filters out the chewy bits to give a concentrated taste of The Science of Ayahuasca, covering the potential medical, physical, psychological, ecological, creative and spiritual uses of ayahuasca. Come as you are, no bucket required.

Venue: The Lighthouse Bar, Shoreditch

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
