The Springfield UU service on April 14 at 10 am will be "Healing and Hope: More on the New Research on Psychedelics" with Rev. Dr. Mellen Kennedy. We are in the midst of a Psychedelic Renaissance brought about by the loosening of government research restrictions in recent years. Researchers are demonstrating that these medicines hold great promise addressing PTSD, depression, anxiety, end-of-life angst and many other conditions, by helping folks find meaning, hope and peace in themselves. Let's explore this cutting edge development and the hope it holds for alleviating suffering. (Rescheduled from winter.) From Noon to 1 pm, "Michael Pollan's How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us about Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression and Transcendence" will be the topic of a book discussion held after the coffee hour. Rev. Mellen will also facilitate the book discussion. It's NOT necessary to have read the book to participate. All welcome.
