Netflix ‘How to Change Your Mind’ Screening and Q&A
October 10, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join NeueHouse for a screening of the Netflix Original Documentary Series How to Change Your Mind from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Pollan, Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney, and two-time Academy Award-nominated and Emmy-winning director Lucy Walker (also a NeueHouse member), exploring what psychedelics can teach us about consciousness, dying, addiction, depression, and transcendence.
The event is co-hosted by MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies), the leading psychedelic research organization dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of psychedelic substances since 1986, and will be followed by a Q&A with Rick Doblin, the founder of MAPS.
This evening will feature Chapter 3: MDMA, delving into what psychedelics, particularly MDMA (a version on the dance floors was called ecstasy), can teach people about consciousness, dying, addiction, depression, and transcendence. Championed by both therapists and ravers, MDMA stands out as the first psychedelic that will be considered for approval by the FDA, thanks to passionate advocates. Leading the charge and paving the way, MAPS has dedicated the last 36 years to changing the way people think of, talk about, and consume psychedelics through research, education, and advocacy.
Stay for a live DJ and cocktail hour following the screening. Complimentary mushroom-infused CBD mocktails from Little Saints and chocolates from Dr. Bronner’s. In partnership with Orbit.
