Horizons is an annual forum for learning about psychedelic drugs in New York City. Its goal is to open a fresh dialogue on their role in medicine, culture, history, spirituality, and creativity. 2011 is its fifth year.
During the 1960s, psychedelics entered worldwide popular culture. Fueled by the wild social dogmas of the era, recreational use become commonplace. Questions about their safety and value for were answered with myths and confusion spread by their users, the media and the government.
In recent years, a small group of dedicated researchers and scholars have orchestrated a renaissance in psychedelic science and thought. Horizons brings together the brightest minds and the boldest voices of this movement to share their research, insights, and dreams for the future.
Horizons is hosted by Judson Memorial Church, a century-old historic landmark in Greenwich Village designed by Mead, McKim & White.
