Come join us for the second part of our Future of Psychedelics pairing as we welcome Katherine MacLean to Studio 34 Yoga on Friday, May 10 at 8:00 to speak on the ethics involved in integrating psychedelics into our culture.
Psychedelics have officially re-entered mainstream American consciousness, and we are poised to integrate these powerful chemicals, plants and fungi into modern life. What does that integration look like? In this talk, Dr. Katherine MacLean will outline her vision of the ways in which we will see psychedelics enter legally recognized venues, from medical clinics to community sanctuary spaces. She will focus on the great promise these substances offer for healing and transformation, as well as the potential risks and ethical considerations that need to be addressed in various contexts. She will draw upon her experience as a psychedelic guide and researcher at Johns Hopkins, as an educator and psychedelic-support facilitator in NYC, and as a trip sitter at large festivals and intentional retreats.
Dr. Katherine MacLean is a research scientist, educator and meditation practitioner, with thousands of hours of experience in supporting individuals during high-dose psychedelic experiences. She completed her PhD training at UC Davis [masked]), studying the effects of long-term meditation practice on attention and well-being. She completed her postdoctoral training at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine [masked]), under the supervision of Dr. Roland Griffiths, Dr. Bill Richards and Mary Cosimano, LCSW. At Hopkins, she conducted legal, clinical trials of high-dose psilocybin and salvinorin-A, which included supporting study participants before, during and after their experiences. In 2015, she co-founded and was the first director of the Psychedelic Education and Continuing Care Program in New York City (www.psychedelicprogram.com).
