Psychedelics Today: On Stage and Under the Microscope
Join award-winning playwright Lynne Kaufman and actor Warren David Keith for a discussion and excerpts from their new production ACID TEST: THE MANY INCARNATIONS OF RAM DASS, playing at The Marsh in Berkeley this Fall. Trace the life, times and spiritual journey of Ram Dass from his roots as Richard Alpert, a scion of a wealthy Jewish family, to his tenured professorship at Harvard University, his beginning the psychedelic revolution with Timothy Leary, his finding his guru in India, to his becoming a revered spiritual leader. Accompanying the playwright and actor is Dr. James Fadiman, author of The Psychedelic Explorer's Guide. A professor and psychologist who has been called the wisest and most respected authority on psychedelics and their use, Fadiman will speak to the latest research and the resurgence of scientific interest in psychedelics.
