ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
One of the most influential religious historians of the 20th century, Huston Smith, once referred to it as the “best-kept secret” in history. Did the Ancient Greeks use psychedelics as part of initiation into the Mysteries such as those at Eleusis? And did the earliest Christians inherit the same, secret tradition? Could a profound knowledge of visionary plants, herbs and fungi have passed from one generation to the next, ever since the Stone Age?
In this opening presentation of the series, Psychedelic Renaissance: Past, Present and Future, Brian Muraresku discusses his twelve-year global hunt for answers to these questions. He also reflects on what it all means for the future of medicine, religion and society at large.
From the ruins of Greece and the hidden collections of the Louvre Museum, to the catacombs under the streets of Rome and the secret archives of the Vatican, he unveils the details of his recent New York Times bestseller, The Immortality Key: The Secret History of the Religion with No Name.
