For the second year in a row, our friends at the Horizons: Perspectives on Psychedelics conference have invited us to host a benefit and networking event for our friends, allies, and local supporters.
On Saturday evening, October 15th from 7 PM – 10 PM, join MAPS and friends in New York City for an intimate dinner at the home of a gracious local MAPS supporter, located above Oracle 113 Gallery. –Rick Doblin, Ph.D. (MAPS Founder & Executive Director) –Berra Yazar-Klosinski, Ph.D. (MAPS Lead Clinical Research Associate) –Brian Wallace (MAPS Director of Field Development) –Neal Goldsmith, Ph.D. (Psychotherapist, Author of Psychedelic Healing: The Promise of Entheogens for Psychotherapy and Spiritual Development) –Julie Holland, M.D. (Psychiatrist, Author of The Pot Book, Ecstasy: The Complete Guide, and Weekends at Bellevue) –Daniel Pinchbeck (Reality Sandwich, Evolver.net, Author of Breaking Open the Head: A Psychedelic Journey into the Heart of Contemporary Shamanism)
After benefactor dinner attendees enjoy a meal together, these guests will join after-party ticket holders downstairs in the gallery around 10 PM for a special celebration with fine music, beverages, and extraordinary works of art. Attendees are reminded that the dinner residence and art gallery are private, healing spaces and that smoking is not allowed on the premises nor directly outside – please take a stroll and respect our hosts.
Tickets for the benefactor dinner are on a donation basis, with a required minimum donation of $325 per person ($285 tax-deductible), and include entry to the after-party at no additional charge. Tickets for the after-party may be purchased for $50 each. The combined capacity for both the dinner and the after-party is extremely limited, and will definitely sell out!
This event will feature a silent auction of rare psychedelic memorabilia, including laboratory glassware from Sasha Shulgin’s lab, signed Albert Hofmann collector’s items, original artworks, and one-of-a-kind jewelry and custom clothing. (Alexander “Sasha” Shulgin and his partner Ann documented the creation and exploration of MDMA, 2C-B, and hundreds of other psychedelic compounds in their books PIHKAL and TIHKAL; Albert Hofmann, Ph.D., is the late chemist who invented LSD in 1938).
