The Psychedelic Society of the Netherlands is delighted to announce its first event, a lecture by Canadian author James Jesso who is passing through Amsterdam on his European tour.
Psilocybin provides the opportunity to explore a very novel state of consciousness which is being increasingly attributed with high levels of psychological and spiritual significance. In particular, it is being attributed to catalyzing powerfully transformative changes in those using it. There is solid discussion on the the various qualities and characteristics of the psilocybin experience within the academic community, but a coherent model of the psychology of psilocybin specific to the process of positive personal transformation is lacking. This presentation presents such a model, developed out of personal experience and extensive study.
The model is referred to as The 4 Archetypes Of Psilocybin and discusses the its use for the purpose of supporting a process of self-transformation towards psychological and emotional health; the experiential characteristics of the psilocybin experience, the emotional processes it catalyzes, and the possible benefits those process can offer the individual; as well as how these described processes and benefits overlap with discoveries in neuroscience.
James W. Jesso is a Canadian author and public educator who is dedicated to helping to distill an accessible language for understanding what it means to cultivate and live a life of psychospiritual maturity.
In doing so, he looks to engender regenerative, coherent, and public discourse on psychedelics, sexuality, meditative practice, and conscious relationships — the means by he believes psychospiritual maturity can be most powerfully developed.
After the event there will be a possibility to buy one of James’ books.
