movie-nightJoin us for our monthly documentary movie night — always uplifting, heart-opening, mind-expanding films. Stories that entertain, empower, and inspire!

This month’s special selection is *FROM NEURONS TO NIRVANA: THE GREAT MEDICINES* ~ a mind-expanding journey exploring the biggest psychological, social and therapeutic issues confronting humanity today. Through the latest scientific research and powerful story-telling, we discover the role that psychedelic medicines can play in alleviating those issues and assisting in our awakening, and the “Civilizing of our Civilization”.

“a film where Psychopharmacology and Neuroscience, Mysticism and Depth Psychology mesh; where time becomes relative and the viewer is entranced in a thought-provoking journey through the very doors of perception.”


“Between your heart to the heart of the Cosmos.”

Fascinating Neuroscience research, as well as subjective experience of these ancient and taboo medicines – carefully explained by the world’s leading neuroscientists, psychopharmacologists and other experts in the field. Noted contributors include Dr. David Nichols, Emeritus Professor of Pharmacology, Purdue University who explains in detail the neuroscience of psychedelics, Amanda Feilding, Director of the Beckley Foundation to Further Consciousness; Michael Winkelman, co-editor of the authoritative “Psychedelic Medicine”; Dr. Michael Mithoefer who conducted the groundbreaking, successful posttraumatic stress disorder trials with MDMA; Wade Davis, author, ethnobotanist; Dr. Dennis McKenna, author, ethnopharmacologist, expert on DMT and Ayahuasca; Jeremy Narby, author, anthropologist; Rick Doblin, Director of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies and Dr. Gábor Máté, the award winning author and expert on addictions.
