A Talk by Diana Quinn , Abou Farman , Shelagh Brown and Djinn Thompson

About this Talk

Underworld Integration: Psychedelics and Death, Grief & Transition For many marginalized communities, loss and grief is an ongoing experience related to not only individual death but to state and social violence. How can psychedelics support the specificity of grief for QT/BIPOC? What does it look like for psychedelic integration to take social issues and context into account? What are the complexities of holding space for both integration and multiplicity? Join us for a panel discussion of the role of psychedelics in individual and collective care for QT/BIPOC navigating death, grief and transition.
