Finding the Jaguar Within: Psychedelics, the Brain, and the Shaman’s Journey
Dr. Katherine MacLean of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Dr. Charles Raison, Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Arizona, will discuss what happens in the brain during the shamanic trances brought about in part by the ingestion of entheogenic substances.
This lecture is made possible in part by a grant from the Emory College Center for Creativity & Arts' David Goldwasser Series in Religion and the Arts. It is being held in conjunction with the ongoing exhibit, For I am the Black Jaguar (http://carlos.emory.edu/black-jaguar): Shamanic Visionary Experience in Ancient American Art, at the Carlos Museum through January 5, 2013.
