Hungry for a Breakthrough
The Effect of Psychedelics and Mystical Experiences on Psychoanalysis

Leslie Stein (USYD)

Dates: Monday, 06/11/2023
Time: 5:30pm
Venue: Madsen Building (F09), Level 3, Room 331
How to register: Free, no registration required

Abstract: We have an impenetrable mind that seeks its own justifications and needs concrete proof before it will allow any change.  This makes psychoanalysis, a deep excursion into those hidden forces that govern our personality and that emerge for consideration in the misty, seemingly irrational content of dreams, in visions, and projections, a difficult and long process.  Psychedelics promise instant revelation and have gained acceptance by its therapeutic use for PTSD, end-of-life despair, eating disorders, OCD and other intractable conditions. But do they really bring us to the hard questions about meaning and the mystery? Carl Jung wrote that mystical experiences are the “real therapy.” Does the importance of a breakthrough give psychedelics a place in the winding descent into the unconscious.
