time:19:00
price: Tickets Below

Information:

A misadventure into magic, myth, folklore and potent neurohacking chemicals. This talk discusses both the scientific and the mystical understanding of people's experiences of visionary encounters with discarnate beings...

In all times and places people have had unnervingly real encounter experiences with deities, demons, angels, elves, aliens, and ghosts. Sometimes these occur when a person is in altered state – dreaming, on drugs, or is near death.

The connection between the altered state and the 'visitation' is explored in a vivid illustrated talk, which takes a personal tour through folklore, mythology, neurochemistry, magic, shamanism, the Luciferian witch cult, Death and the angel of a thousand eyes, brain anatomy, Tibetan demonology, the pineal gland, art, the Reg Veda, psychoactive toads and a cauldron full of other odd ingredients.

Location: The Jam Jar, Old Market
Doors 7 pm / Talk Starts 7.30 pm

Dr. David Luke is Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Greenwich where he teaches an undergraduate course on the Psychology of Exceptional Human Experience. His research focuses on transpersonal experiences, anomalous phenomena and altered states of consciousness, especially via psychedelics, having published more than 100 academic papers in this area, including seven books, most recently Otherworlds: Psychedleics and Exceptional Human Experience (2017, Muswell Hill). He has studied techniques of consciousness alteration from South America to India, from the perspective of scientists, shamans and Shivaites, and lives life on the edge... of Sussex.
