Hear Katherine MacLean talk about her experiences in the male-dominated medical establishment before she left it and how she discovered that this male domination carried over into her experiences in the “alternative” psychedelic community.
Katherine MacLean is a research scientist, teacher and meditator. In her academic research, she studied how psychedelics and mindfulness meditation can promote beneficial, long-lasting changes in personality, well-being and brain function. Following her sister’s untimely death from cancer, she left academia and co-founded the Psychedelic Education & Continuing Care Program in New York, which focuses on increasing awareness and reducing risks of psychedelic use.
WLRN’s Thistle Pettersen was able to connect with her by phone to capture this interview in February 2019.
Ms. MacLean will be giving one of the keynote addresses at the third annual Mycelium Mysteries Women’s Retreat in Almond, WI taking place the weekend of September 27-29, 2019. Learn more at www.midwestwomensherbal.com
