annual Horizons Conference: Perspectives in Psychedelics.
Horizons brings together scholars to discuss psychedelics and their role in medicine, culture, history, spirituality and creativity. Previous speakers have included clinical researchers from top universities, scholars, activists and artists of many stripes.
In the past decade small groups of dedicated researchers and academics have orchestrated a renaissance in psychedelic research and thought. This conference is an opportunity for these bright minds to share their research, insights and dreams for the future.
