Wed Nov 15 (1pm-6pm ET) Hallucinogenics, Marijuana, Clinical Impact with Sex Therapy – Sylvia Rosenfeld and Tammy Nelson

In this conversation, we will explore the commonalities between sexual and psychedelic experiences. Some of the themes we will discuss are transcendence, connection, and healing. Additionally, we will have an opportunity to reflect on Donald Mosher’s model, The Three Dimensions of Sexual Experience, and how psychedelics might impact those dimensions. This will be an interactive presentation and sharing of personal experience will be encouraged but not required.
