"Psychedelic Listening to Open Minds & Hearts": Dennis McKenna, Alexandre Tannous & Mellody Hayes, moderated by Marik Hazan

What are ways to amplify voices and engage in respectful listening? Psychedelics deprogram and open minds, and ultimately open hearts — critical right now in these times of heightening division. How can we rechart the course to keep minds and hearts open?
