Psychedelic Sangha Presents,
GATHERING: The Alchemy of Transforming Trauma with Dr. Katherine MacLean 

Most people have doubtlessly experienced some degree of trauma in their life. For Buddhists (who believe in rebirth) trauma is conceived in terms of multiple lifetimes! Karma and rebirth may seem to be unnecessary supernatural suppositions, but epigenetics suggest that the effects of intergenerational trauma are empirically real--thus making Buddhist psychology uniquely applicable.  

Katherine MacLean believes that intergenerational trauma can be transformed through the alchemy of Buddhist practice with psychedelics. A provocative claim that she substantiates through her own experience as both a psychedelic researcher and psychedelic Buddhist practitioner. 

Please join us for us for the inaugural GATHERING of Psychedelic Sangha, at Judson Memorial Church, with special guest Dr. Katherine MacLean. 

We will be begin the evening with a special puja to mark the occasion, followed by some Psychedelic Sangha spiritual games. Katherine will lead the sangha in a guided "RAFT" meditation (Remembering to be Aware of Feelings in your body and Trust your experience). And then share some of her professional and personal experience of intergenerational trauma and her alchemical practice for transformation.
