18 June: Exploring Altered states and scientific freedom
Talk & discussion with Aleksandra Gracjasz
We’ll start the evening with a talk by Aleksandra Gracjasz (MSc) who wrote an essay on the state’s relationship with psychedelics research at the Behavioural and Social Sciences Department at Utrecht University.
“A psychedelic cure; an exploration and analysis on the state’s relationship with scientific research”
During this talk she’ll map out the difficulties and obstacles present while doing research in psychedelics. Her research also contributes a lot to our understanding of how scientific research and the state are inextricably linked through historical, cultural and economic dependencies.
Discussion on altered states of consciousness
Aleksandra wrote her master’s thesis on altered states of consciousness (ASC) achieved through dance rituals. After the talk, we’ll explore together the different ways of inducing altered states.
Some of you have probably experienced that not only psychedelics, but also dance rituals, sound and vibration, meditation and yoga are capable of inducing altered states.
Perhaps you have a particular experience or insight that you would like to share? By any means, you are most welcome to participate in the discussion!
