With Rachel Harris, PhD, & JP Harpignies

Discover the latest research into the use of the sacred vine to treat depression, addiction, PTSD, and Anxiety.

Used for thousands of years by indigenous tribes of the Amazon rainforest, ayahuasca is becoming increasingly popular in the West. Considered a medicine by practitioners, the tea has great therapeutic potential that is just beginning to be studied. As a result of her own personal experience with ayahuasca, Dr. Rachel Harris was inspired to research how this medicine was being used in North America in the largest study of this kind to date. Her new book, Listening to Ayahuasca, describes her findings, including miracle cures of depression and addiction, therapeutic breakthroughs, spiritual revelations, and challenging or bad trips.

Come celebrate the publication of Listening to Ayahuasca and hear Rachel's compelling, firsthand accounts of the medicine's healing effects from her groundbreaking research. She will also share her own personal experiences with ayahuasca and how she integrated them therapeutically into her life.

Joining Rachel for a conversation will be author JP Harpignies, programmer for the Bioneers conference and editor of the collection Visionary Plant Consciousness.
