The Australian Psychedelic Society (Sydney) is proud to present our first official screening of A New Understanding: The Science of Psilocybin as part of the 920 Coalition events. Held around the world each year on 20th September, the coalition is focused on research and the role that psychedelic psilocybin mushrooms play in our society and health care system.
A New Understanding explores the treatment of end-of-life anxiety in terminally ill cancer patients using psilocybin to facilitate deeply spiritual experiences as part of the first psychedelic research studies with terminally ill patients since the 1970s. The recent resurgence of psychedelic research is once again revealing the power of compounds like psilocybin to profoundly alter our understanding of both life and death in a society that devotes a great deal of attention to treating cancer, but very little to treating the human being who is dying of cancer.
