Tarnas, Richard – Psychedelic Therapy, Sacred Medicine Journeys, and Astrology

With the growing renaissance of government-approved research into the power of psychedelic therapy for treating conditions ranging from PTSD and addiction to depression and end-of-life anxiety, and with the increasing interest in indigenous sacred medicine rituals such as ayajuasca and peyote circles, the unique capacity of astrology for illuminating the archetypal character and timing of non-ordinary states of consciousness has become especially relevant. The world’s leading psychiatrist in psychedelic therapy, Stanislav Grof, has called astrology the “Rosetta’s stone” of the human psyche. Richard Tarnas will share his and Grof’s forty years of research in this field, which began at Esalen Institute in the 1970s.
