An exploration of music’s transformative potential in psychedelic therapy and beyond.
Recent years has seen an unprecedented rise in interest and clinical research on psychedelic therapy, an approach that combines psychedelics, music, introspection, and person-centred support. The combined use of music and psychedelics is ancient and universal, yet with the rise of psychedelic therapy many questions are emerging on the function of music and how to use it within in this context. This workshop will take co-creative approach, combining introspective music listening, a presentation on relevant research , and a group discussion about music’s function in psychedelic therapy.
Please bring an eye-mask to wear during the listening sessions.
