From September 24th – 26th, Horizons: Perspectives on Psychedelics will return for its fourth year. Once again, we will be hosted by Judson Memorial Church in the heart of Greenwich Village.
This is our largest offering yet, featuring thirteen presentations. Saturday’s program will present the latest in medicine, science, psychology and public policy. Sunday afternoon will explore philosophical and cultural topics.
Since its inception in 2007, we have grown from a single afternoon of local and regional speakers to a full weekend of knowledge, community and celebration with presenters from across the United States and Europe.
Purchase tickets. Join us on Facebook. Learn more on our website. Tell you friends.
