In his new book, How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence, food writer Michael Pollan turns his attention from the sustenance we put into our bodies to survive to the drugs we ingest to get high. Specifically, Pollan looks at LSD and magic mushrooms, which are increasingly being used to treat everything from anxiety to addiction. A masterful storyteller, Pollan will reflect on his own experiences with altered states of consciousness, as well as the science behind these mysterious molecules. This is one event not to miss—whether you are altered or not.
