About the Event
This cycle's book is ''Drug Use for Grown-Ups: Chasing Liberty in the Land of Fear'' by Carl Hart!
If possible, read the prologue and the first chapter before the first meeting.
MPS Book Club is:
- Free to join.
- Primarily in English
- Currently offered Online only via Zoom
- Currently being run by Carrie Katz; Board Member of MPS, Certified in Both Psychedelic Integration and Integrative Harm Reduction Psycho-spiritual Coaching.
All meetings are confidential.
We ask that once you join for a book you stay till the end if at all possible. We do not accept members mid-way through a book.
Book selection is by consensus: We have a meeting that is open to anyone that is already a member or wants to join the MPS Book. During that meeting we decide what the next book will be. The choice of books is from a resource list of Psychedelic books or some bring their own book Titles for consideration. It’s a lively conversation. We wait 2 weeks approximately between books to give everyone a chance to obtain the book.
At the beginning of each book we divide the Book Club meetings into manageable chapters. Over the next few weeks each person volunteers to host or curate that chapter. That member will be moderating the conversation and gathering and posing questions pertaining to that chapter(s).
The purpose of the BOOK Club is to connect, educate, and support the potential of psychedelic experiences for healing, personal transformation, the exploration of consciousness and scientific advancement.
The Book Club is for those interested in the dialogue about psychedelics and the exploration of non-ordinary states of
consciousness. We value inclusivity and welcome people of all genders, sexual orientations, ethnicities, ages, abilities, and socio-economic backgrounds.
We intend to :
- Promote reflection and discussion about the cultural, historical, spiritual, political, legal, phenomenological, and scientific aspects of psychedelics
- Promote other approaches to exploring altered states of consciousness, including meditation and contemplative practice, Holotropic breath work and more.
IF YOU WANT TO SIGN UP - sign up here on the website and attend the first meeting of the new cycle (Feb 21st), you'll get all the details then.
