Join us for a Screening and Panel Discussion of the documentary, "Psychedelia: The History and Science of Mystical Experience" at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. The screening will be followed by a discussion with filmmaker Pat Murphy and esteemed panelists Paul Stamets and Dr. Anthony Bossis.
The film takes viewers on a journey through the origins and resurgence of psychedelic research and explores how spiritual experiences are transforming mental health.
This is the Saturday evening event for the Catalyst Summit, so all conference pass holders will have access. A limited number of spots are being opened up to the public, which you can purchase here. All ticket sales will go directly towards supporting the filmmaker.
“My two favorite movies that are educational are ‘Fantastic Fungi’ and ‘Psychedelia.” There was footage I’ve never seen and it educated me on some things I did not know.”
- Paul Stamets, Mycologist and Author
“I’ve seen many films on the 1960s and the psychedelic renaissance, but I have to say this is one of the best.”
- Dennis McKenna, Ethnopharmacologist
“Absolutely terrific… this is an excellent film and one that should be seen widely. It’s really a film whose time has come.”
- Britt Bunyard, FUNGI Magazine
