Following a two day seminar entitled Researching Psychedelic-Assisted Therapies in Patients with Serious Illness: Defining a Path Forward hosted by the Radcliffe Institute for the Advanced Study at Harvard University,
There will be a screening of Fantastic Fungi for health care professionals. The film takes you into the world of mycelium and the mushrooms and their amazing intelligence and ability to partner with us on some of the most challenging issues we are currently facing, including medical issues.
Doors will open at 6pm to give people an opportunity to network with professionals involved and /or interested in the psychedelic-assisted therapies and research field.
Top researchers and leaders from this area of research, including Charles Grob, Mary Cosimano and Anthony Bossis, as well as prior participants in psychedelic studies, will participate in a post screening Q&A.
Please share this information widely within the medical field as we are interested in holding a large conversation about the use of psychedelics and to discover opportunities for collaborations.
This screening is sponsored by the Radcliffe Institute for the Advanced Study at Harvard University, Boston Psychedelic Research Group (BPRG) and the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies. Exhibits will be there for your further edification.
"Fantastic Fungi offers nothing less than a model for planetary survival."
~ Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
"Gorgeous photography! Time-lapse sequences of mushrooms blossoming forth could pass for studies of exotic flowers growing on another planet."
~ Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal
"Schwartzberg's film quickly proves to be one of the years most mind-blowing, soul-cleansing and yes, immensely entertaining triumphs."
~ Matt Fagerholm, RogerEbert.com
"A must-see for anyone interested in life, death and the pursuit of the planet's well-being."
~ David Carpenter, Forbes
When so many are struggling for connection, inspiration, and hope, Fantastic Fungi brings us together as interconnected creators of our world.
Fantastic Fungi, directed by Louie Schwartzberg, is a consciousness-shifting film that takes us on an immersive journey through time and scale into the magical earth beneath our feet, an underground network that can heal and save our planet. Through the eyes of renowned scientists and mycologists like Paul Stamets, best-selling authors Michael Pollan, Eugenia Bone, Andrew Weil, and others, we become aware of the beauty, intelligence and solutions the fungi kingdom offers us in response to some of our most pressing medical, therapeutic, and environmental challenges.
