The Psychedelic Gospels
Sacred Sacraments and the Future of Religion.
This richly-illustrated slide presentation examines the religious role of psychedelics in Judeo-Christianity, in indigenous shamanism, and in classical Greece and India. Based on humanity’s ancient history with this proven pathway to the divine, Jerry and Julie call for the establishment of Sacred Centers, where healthy people could legally and safely explore psychedelics for religious and spiritual purposes.
New Science of Psychedelics
Breakthroughs in Psychology, Medicine and Spirituality.
This presentation discusses major advances in the application of psychedelics, such as ayahuasca, LSD, MDMA and psilocybin, to the areas of consciousness, medicine, and spirituality – including the modern mainstreaming of psychedelic-assisted therapies for people dealing with addiction, depression, and PTSD.
