Description: Horizons 2010: September 24-26 at Judson Memorial Church in New York City. Tickets Are On Sale Now! Horizons is a forum for learning about psychedelics, held annually in New York City. The goal of the conference is to open a fresh dialogue on the role of psychedelics in medicine, culture, history, spirituality, and art. Previous speakers have included researchers from NYU, UCLA, Johns Hopkins, Purdue, the University of Zurich, and numerous writers, historians, artists, and thought leaders. Horizons 2010 will be the conferences fourth year. In the 1950s and early 1960s, legal research with psychedelics spurred important discoveries in science and psychology. During the 1960s, psychedelics entered worldwide popular culture. Questions about their safety, medical value, history and implications in politics and culture were unfortunately answered with numerous myths spread by both their users and the media. In recent years, a small group of dedicated researchers, sch!
olars, and activists has orchestrated a renaissance that is re-shaping the publics understanding of these unique substances. Horizons brings together the brightest minds and the boldest voices of this movement to share their research, insights, and dreams for the future.
