Psychedelic Medicine: CPR for the Soul?
November 10, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm
Watch a recording of this event here.
Go on a journey into the mind to explore the possibility of relief of suffering and spiritual growth through psychedelic-assisted therapy.
A universal change we all must face is death. For some, anticipation of this change brings significant distress. New research shows that guided psychedelic-assisted therapy might ease this distress for some of those battling serious illness. Do psychedelics have the potential to change the way we look at ourselves, our brains, and our connections with others? Ongoing research may help us answer these questions, but history also tells a tale of caution, and this is not a therapy currently available outside the research setting.
Dr. Lou Lukas of the Heartland Palliadelic Research Center will talk about how psychedelics may create a new path for relieving suffering in people with serious illnesses like cancer before joining a panel conversation that invites the audience to dive into the history, science, and possible future of psychedelics.
A partnership between Lyle Fettig, MD, a local palliative care physician; Lou Lukas, MD of Heartland Palliadelic Research Center; and Norma Stevens, MS, LCPC, a research therapist at Aquilino Cancer Center.
