From antiquity through today, entheogens and expanded states of consciousness have played a role in Jewish practice, ritual, and prophecy. Jewish mystical traditions, including kabbalah and meditation, provide a container through which to understand, process, and integrate the psychedelic experience. Psychedelics can also kindle a reinvigorated approach to religion and spiritual connection through shamanic Jewish practice and non ordinary states of consciousness.
In this two-day summit, we will explore the many ways that psychedelics play a part in Judaism—from archaeological evidence showing the use of entheogenic incense to the potential of psychedelics to treat Jewish trauma. We'll hear from top scholars in the field, while hearing from those with lived experience in Jewish psychedelia. We'll cover all corners of the Jewish psychedelic world, including why Jews (many with psychedelic experience) seek out spirituality in Eastern traditions, and why ending the Drug War is a Jewish imperative. We'll also hear from a panel of psychedelic rabbis, along with Jewish entertainers, and after the panels, will provide an opportunity for breakout groups to enable our community to further connect.
Psychedelic Judaism may not be as far out a practice as it sounds; indeed, psychedelics have played a role in Judaism from the near-genesis of the religion, and are continuing to reignite our spiritual connection to it. This summit will show how experts and practicing Jews engage with psychedelics for spiritual growth, connection, healing and transformation.
