Explorer’s Club: Bruce Damer – Psychedelics, Consciousness, Creativity, and the Origins of Life

April 25 @ 5:00 pm - 6:15 pm PDT

A Ram Dass community exploring non-ordinary states of consciousness, (psychedelics), spirituality, and science.

Step into a realm of extraordinary – join these free community gatherings as we delve into pivotal movements within the psychedelic renaissance while paying homage to the enduring legacy of Ram Dass, a trailblazing icon in this field. Our gatherings will include, yet transcend, the conventional discourse on psychedelics as therapy and healing. In addition, we embark on explorations of expanded consciousness, guided by the themes of awe, transcendence, union, and beyond. Journey with us as we navigate psychedelics in the contexts of spirituality, science, and the creativity impulse – a key component for addressing the profound questions that shape both our personal journeys and the world at large. Through a blend of archival talks by Ram Dass, engaging interviews with contemporary visionaries in the field, live audience Q&A sessions, and group discussions, our gatherings serve as catalysts for mutual learning and growth. Join us on this transformative odyssey towards a deeper understanding and collective evolution.”
