Join Psychedelic Sangha for a GUIDED MEDITATION and walking EXPLORATION of Brooklyn's PROSPECT PARK. Darshan दर्शन is Sanskrit for “beatific vision.” It is a numinous experience of the senses that transcends visual form and touches the sublime. Darshan is a spiritual engagement with art, nature, and teachers. Darshan is traditionally “received” in the company of spiritual friends—a sangha (“spiritual community”). Come receive DARSHAN with Psychedelic Sangha! We'll explore the mandala of Prospect Park, and retrace the path that we took with ERIK DAVIS. Along the way we'll do some psychedelic meditation and connect with spiritual friends. We'll convene on the steps of the BROOKLYN PUBLIC LIBRARY (10 Grand Army Plaza) before journeying into PROSPECT PARK. Should the weather prevent a gathering outside, we will simply move indoors to the same nearby Psychedelic Sangha residence.

TICKETS: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/gathering-psychedelic-integration-harm-reduction-with-katherine-maclean-tickets-66218040943 Have you had a powerful psychedelic/entheogenic experience? Are you looking for a safe space to process your insights? GATHERINGS is a community-led peer integration circle with a commitment to inquiry and harm reduction. A psychedelic/entheogenic experience can be beautiful, but also harrowing and confusing. Having a safe place and access to a community who understand this experience can be hugely beneficial. GATHERINGS are where individuals come to safely share their psychedelic experience and knowledge with the support of a trained facilitator and compassionate spiritual community. Psychedelic Sangha and The New York Psychedelic Society have joined forces to launch a series of GATHERINGS dedicated entirely to psychedelic integration and harm reduction education. Our aim is to cultivate a community-led peer integration circle that is non-hierarchical, non-judgmental, accessible, diverse, and educational. And we are committed to providing opportunities to learn the principles of harm reduction. Dr. Katherine MacLean is our facilitator-in-residence who will spearhead the first three GATHERINGS that will take place in the Assembly Hall at Judson Memorial Church starting August 1st, and then meeting monthly thereafter on a regular schedule. ______________ Katherine MacLean, PhD is a research scientist with expertise in studying the effects of mindfulness meditation and psychedelics. At Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, she conducted legal clinical trials of psilocybin, the primary chemical found in "magic mushrooms”. In 2015, she co-founded and was the first director of the Psychedelic Education and Continuing Care Program in New York, where she led training workshops and monthly integration groups focused on increasing awareness and reducing risks of psychedelic use. She's helped to bring medical and humanitarian aid to remote Himalayan villages, as well as create sanctuary spaces for psychedelic support at large outdoor festivals.
