Michael Pollan

How To Change Your Mind

In conversation with Nick Powers, PhD.

In a talk based on his new book, Michael Pollan explores these same themes while charting bold new territory. How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence is Pollan’s brilliant and brave investigation into psychedelic drugs and what they reveal about the human mind, the self, and our connection to the natural world and each other.
This unique event will feature Pollan in conversation with Dr. Nick Powers, professor of literature, poet, and journalist, and founder of the People of Color camp at Burning Man. He has explored how psychedelics transform the practice of journalism and how they intersect with race.
~~~~~
The ARK Series is a new platform, created by Beloved Presents and Soul’d Out Productions, that aims to put original ideas at the forefront. We’ll continue to explore how music and celebration can feed these conversations AND we need a place to make these conversations more explicit. More information and events coming soon!
