Psychedelic Sessions 2015
Friday 31 juli 2015 at the Landjuweel festival in Ruigoord, The Netherlands, Azarius organized the first edition of the Psychedelic Sessions.
The afternoon was filled with six interesting lectures that give you the opportunity to learn more about the psychedelic experience. Most of us will know about tripping and spacing, but what can psychedelics offer us in terms of ritual, therapeutic, scientific or spiritual use?
The speakers are all experienced professionals and each paints a fascinating picture of the psychedelic experience from their own point of view and area of expertise. Everything from ayahuasca to peyote to LSD, it'll all be dissected during the Psychedelic Sessions.
