The Coming Psychedelic Renaissance with Dr Neal. Goldsmith
If you 'd like to get a copy of the Powerpoint presentation, please email Neal at email@example.com The much-heralded "Psychedelic Renaissance" is really "just" a renaissance in psychedelic research. The real societal psychedelic renaissance begins in just five years or so when these extraordinary substances will be rescheduled and become more widely available. In this talk, I'll review the current state of the research on the clinical use of psychedelics, and describe psychedelic integration, the popular new practice of "microdosing," and the concept of "ego-death." I'll highlight the relationship between the stages of developmental psychology and tribal rites of passage - both of which are facilitated by the loosening action of visionary substances and both of which represent mini- "deaths and rebirths" - and show how societal development mirrors personal development. We'll conclude with a discussion of the future of psychedelics policy and the big-picture implications of a re-introduction of psychedelics into Western civilization. Neal M. Goldsmith, Ph.D. is a social psychologist, expert in psychedelic research and therapy, and a licensed psychotherapist with a psychospiritual development orientation. Author of dozens of popular and scholarly articles, he is a frequent speaker on psychotherapy and change, adult developmental psychology, psychedelics research and policy, and the integral future of society. He also curates and hosts innovative workshops, salons, and conferences, including the annual Horizons: Perspectives on Psychedelics and the MAPS Psychedelic Science conferences. Dr. Goldsmith’s book, Psychedelic Healing: The Promise of Entheogens for Psychotherapy and Spiritual Development, describes the influence of psychedelics on the development of his world view, personality theory and clinical practice. Trained in humanistic, transpersonal, and Eastern traditions, Dr. Goldsmith maintains a private psychotherapy practice in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
