Do you want to dive into the history of psychedelics and the drug war? Do you want to explore the weirdest stories that have emerged from non-ordinary consciousness? Are you looking for new concepts and paradigms with which to process your own experiences? BPS invites you to join its Psychedelic Book Group.
Every month we will pick a book together and meet to talk about it on the first Thursday of every month. We hope to engage a number of topics with our selections, and to create a space for honest and curious conversation.
For our next book, we are reading Mescaline: A Global History of the First Psychedelic, by Mike Jay. In the text, Jay outlines the definitive history of mescaline and explores its mind-altering effects across cultures, from ancient America to Western modernity
We will be meeting in person to discuss the book together on Thursday, April 7th from 7-9pm at Caffeine Underground (447 Central Ave, Brooklyn).
May Bookclub: If you would like to get a head start in ordering our next book selection. We will be discussing Higher Wisdom: Eminent Elders Explore The Continuing Impact Of Psychedelics by Roger Walsh.
