Discovery: Magic Medicine + Psychotropic herb workshop

  • Harris Academy South Norwood 2 Cumberlow Avenue London SE25 6AE (map)

Dir. Monty Wates • 2018 • UK • Documentary • Cert 15 • 79 mins

Can magic mushrooms cure depression? April’s Discovery film is a fascinating documentary about the first medical study of psychedelic drugs in 60 years, with results that could have the power to transform millions of lives.

We follow three volunteers in the study as they cling on to the hope that so called magic mushrooms might give them the chance to lead their lives freely without being weighed down by their lifelong suffering with crippling depression.

We’re excited to be welcoming Rabiah Mali from The Herbal Blessing Clinic who will be leading a conversation on the historic and traditional understanding of mental illness and the medical use of psychotropic herbs.

*Please note the alternative programme timings for this event. Workshop 7.45pm, Film 8.30pm.
