Thank you for joining the Mind Medicine Australia study group. We look forward to exploring the following readings with you:
Psychedelics: Mysticism, Religion and Philosophy
This study group will discuss the potential use of psychedelics during the Eleusinian Mysteries in Ancient Greece and its subsequent influence on Western thought, philosophy and early Christianity. Additionally, we will examine St John of the Cross’s Dark Night of the Soul mystical experience and how it can be reconceptualised under Stanislav Grof’s ‘perinatal’ experiences for fostering spiritual development with psychedelic-assisted therapy.
