Event description

Description

Montreal Psychedelic Society presents a livestreamed seminar by Dr. Jerry Brown, co-author of The Psychedelic Gospels.

The Psychedelic Gospels:
• Follows the authors’ anthropological adventure discovering sacred mushroom images in European and Middle Eastern churches, including Roslyn Chapel and Chartres
• Provides color photos showing how R. Gordon Wasson’s psychedelic theory of religion clearly extends to Christianity and reveals why Wasson suppressed this information due to his secret relationship with the Vatican
• Examines the Bible and the Gnostic Gospels to show that visionary plants were the catalyst for Jesus’s awakening to his divinity and immortality

Jerry B. Brown, Ph.D., is an anthropologist, author and activist. From 1972-2014, he served as founding professor of anthropology at Florida International University in Miami, where he designed and taught a course on "Hallucinogens and Culture." The course examines the use of psychoactive plants by tribal and classical cultures, including Ancient India and Greece, and by modern mind-explorers, the "psychonauts of the twentieth century."

REVIEWS:
"This book also highlights the important role psychedelics can playi nt he realization of the fundamental unity of all beings through the mystical experience. A great read which I recommend to anyone interested in the spiritual aspects of the psychedelic experience."
- Rick Doblin, Ph.D., founder of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies

"This book expertly navigates through the iconography of mushroom symbolism throughout the ages. One clear message comes through: mushrooms have played a central role in the evolution of human consciousness, and indeed religion. Thought provoking and well-articulated, the authors present a solid case for their thesis. This is an important book to contemplate. If true, the very roots (mycelia!) of Christianity were inspired by the use of deeply guarded and secret sacraments: magic mushrooms."
- Paul Stamets, author of Mycelium Running

“A fascinating piece of scholarly work that opens new possibilities of understanding human consciousness.”
- David Crosby, singer-songwriter
