LATE LUNCH AT LIMINAL
Sharing Circle by Daan Keiman
How’s your Boom going? Is it your first one? Are you a veteran and you like to compare your experiences? Are you finding it overwhelming or life-affirming? Did something amazing or troubling just happened and you need to share about it? Or do you just want to sit back and hear other people’s sharings?
Join facilitator Daan Keiman in this informal sharing session to hear from each other how is it going. Join us at 3pm in Late Lunch, everyday supported by a different space-holder (you can bring your lunch with you!).
THE WAR ON DRUGS AND SOCIAL JUSTICE: BEYOND PSYCHEDELICS EXCEPTIONALISM
Panel by Daan Keiman, Erica Lagalisse and Camille Barton
As psychedelic-assisted therapies enter the mainstream, psychedelic exceptionalism is the dominant narrative - the idea that psychedelics are the """"good drugs"""" and other substances are """"bad"""" drugs.
In order to make ethical decisions that expand access to psychedelics, it is essential to consider the impact of the war on drugs, which has disproportionately impacted Black people, as well as other global majority communities, in the UK, USA, Canada, Brazil and other European contexts.
In this discussion panel, Daan Keiman will weave a reflection with artist and educator Camille Barton and anthropologist Erica Lagalisse on how to move beyond psychedelic exceptionalism and acknowledge the ways that drug policy has been used as a tool of social and racial control.
This panel will consider how learning from the past will allow us to weave different futures, rooted in care for all beings as well as bodily autonomy.
