This Funzing Experience:
Funzing invites you to a day of talks on the wonderful world of psychedelics. We have invited three esteemed speakers to share their knowledge and expertise on those little molecules which alter human consciousness so profoundly.

Set in the garden of Peckham Springs, you will be soaking up sunshine and knowledge in this day of talks. If the weather does turn, there will be adequate covered areas.

Dr David Luke - The Science of Psychedelics

The traditional use of psychoactive plants and fungi for spiritual and shamanic rituals has occurred for thousands of years, whereas the Western scientific research of these substances has only been explored in the last 100 years, and prohibition stalled the last 50 years of this.

Now that scientific research is resuming, what do psychedelics tell us about the weirder side of human consciousness, and what can be learned from the traditional shamanic practices with these substances?

Dr. Luke is one of Europe's leading experts in this field, having co-authored four books on the subject and co-founded the International Conference on Psychedelic Consciousness, Breaking Convention.

Bruna Giribaldi - Psychedelics and Depression

Bruna Giribaldi is a key member of Imperial's Psychedelic Research Group which has been carrying out world leading research on Psychedelics and Depression.

Her main focus is co-ordinating the upcoming research on Psilocybin, the active ingredient in Magic Mushrooms, and depression. Initial results suggested mushrooms can bring immediate and long-lasting relief capturing headlines worldwide. But what do these mushroom sessions consist of and how do they work? You will learn this and more from Bruna

Gammadian Freeman - How Psychedelics enhance Perception

Psychedelics move perception in a drastic way. They open the doors of perception. However, they take their toll on the body. Often after the session, we feel drained. Even after recuperation, many of the insights we obtained are no longer available to us.

Gammadian discusses the various affects of different psychedelics with focus on the discoveries made under their influence and how to capitalise on the information received. He shares ways that we can move and enhance perception by natural means.

He will talk about recent tests where psychedelics are used along with therapy and the results they have obtained.

Venue: Peckham Springs, Peckham

Event Starts 1pm. Talks until 6pm.
