This Funzing Experience:
Thinking about the big questions, what is the meaning of life, are we even real, can leave our brains floating with possibilities. Similar to how psychedelic drugs often lead to mystical experiences in which people feel they arrive at deep truths about themselves and reality.

Join Jules Evans, philosopher and historian, for a mind-altering talk where he'll discuss how psychedelics have influenced the great minds of our times.

In this talk, he considers how our cultural assumptions shape psychedelic experiences in various ways. Jules will discuss some helpful techniques from Christian and Buddhist mysticism and transpersonal psychology, which can help us make sense of trips.

Discover how reliable our psychedelic insights are. Do psychedelics really give us access to ultimate truths, or do they simply reflect our beliefs and assumptions back to us?

Venue: The Square Club
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.
