LDN Talks @ Night: Science of Ayahuasca

Doors: 7pm Talk starts: 7.30pm

The Science of Ayahuasca: Hallucinogenic panacea or tourist rip off?

Until very recently it was an obscure hallucinogenic brew from the Amazon jungle, but now Ayahuasca has fast become the most intriguing beverage on the planet. Droves of Westerners are increasingly heading out to purpose built retreats in South America in search of professional inspiration, physical and psychological healing, and spiritual insight, but are such motives based on desperate hope and an opportunistic tourist industry or are there well researched effective uses for ayahuasca that match any of its growing hype as a panacea for all 21st century ills.

This talks pours the known research into a big pot, boils it down, and filters out the chewy bits to give a concentrated taste of The Science of Ayahuasca, covering the potential medical, physical, psychological, ecological, creative and spiritual uses of ayahuasca. Come as you are, no bucket required.

LDN Talks is a new concept which aims to re-invent your after work drinks. We've pulled together an impressive array of leading entrepreneurs, intellectuals and bright thinkers to leave you feeling inspired.
