Many of us have journeyed into magical mushroom space and wondered how to bring the treasures we find there into our daily lives. What we often forget is that these states of mind, body and heart require commitment and practice. Join us for an evening of sacred, communal meditation, led by psychedelic scientist Dr. Katherine MacLean and contemplative scientist and meditation teacher, Dr. Erika Rosenberg. We will engage in specific mind-training techniques, inspired by Buddhist meditations, that can help enliven our somatic and energetic memories of past mushroom experiences. We will practice befriending all of the inhabitants of our minds and extending our hearts out to our fellow beings.

Please note that these meditations may inspire intense emotions, memories, thoughts and sensations. We will have trained individuals present to support anyone having difficult experiences. We encourage you to attend with a friend you trust so that you can help each other after the event has concluded.

Katherine MacLean, PhD is a research scientist, teacher and meditator. In her academic research at UC Davis and Johns Hopkins University, she studied how psychedelics and mindfulness meditation can promote beneficial, long-lasting changes in personality, well-being and brain function.

She has traveled throughout the United States and internationally to facilitate integration groups for psychedelics users and lead trainings and educational workshops for clinicians and the public.
