"A New Understanding: The Science of Psilocybin"

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This film explores the research and benefits of using psilocybin to dramatically reduce the anxiety of death in terminally ill cancer patients. Last year, Robert was an attendee of the festival and spoke on a panel regarding medicinal Psilocybin research. More about the movie: Over the past decade, government-sanctioned, FDA-approved, human psychedelic medical research with psilocybin has been conducted at Johns Hopkins University, New York University and UCLA by The Heffter Research Institute. The research serves as the narrative backbone for the documentary. The film presents an intimate look into the lives of several terminally ill cancer patients participating in the studies and opens an intriguing discourse of the dying process and our role as a society in the process. By informing current misconceptions about psychedelic medicines, A New Understanding utilizes a collection of accomplished minds to discuss psilocybin’s role in culture, evolution, mystical states, and even life itself.

There will be a discussion beforehand and a chance to ask questions.
