From a curious Swiss scientist who discovered LSD (he lived to be 102 years old), to the first Westerner who participated in a Mazatec mushroom ritual. Relating the stories of remarkable historical figures, as well as drawing from personal experience, Arno will lead us through the highlights of hallucinogenics' roller coaster past.
Stephan is a researcher at the Utrecht University. He'll discuss the historical use of hallucinogenic mushrooms like the Fly Agaric, and shed some light on the use of mushrooms' psycho-active ingredients for medical purposes.
Dive into the psychedelic underground with Ivar, and discover how the use of certain hallucinogenics can stimulate artistic and spiritual growth.
