Flipping the Script: Exploring the Intersection Between Psychedelics & Creative Cognition

Broadcast on May 08, 2023
With Laura Dawn, MSc
Hosted by Joe Tafur, MD

Join Laura Dawn as she focuses on reframing and flipping the script on the current narrative around psychedelics and mental illness — and shares how sacred plant medicines are profoundly valuable tools for cultivating creative thinking and problem-solving skills. She'll also explore why altered states of consciousness are so essential for uncovering innovative solutions to the complex challenges we currently face.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • Creativity is such a complex topic, it's helpful to break it down into the 4 P's of creativity to offer context
  • The lens through which we study, observe, and explore psychedelics influences our outcomes 
  • Underlying the psychedelic experience is unconstrained fluid thinking, which is very valuable for healing and creating
