EXPLORING THE metaphysical nature of psychedelic experiences
This panel features a number of psychedelic researchers with extensive knowledge in the field of metaphysics. Together, they will engage in a discussion about the metaphysical nature of psychedelic experiences themselves and their place in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy and personal growth. First, terms will be defined, specifically what distinguishes metaphysics from mysticism and abstract concepts more generally. Then, the panelists will look critically at the role of metaphysics in psychedelic therapy as it is employed today. What role should it play for patients exactly? And are there alternatives to the current methods?
