For those in the UK, if you’ve got next weekend free then this might be right up your alley: Breaking Convention is “a multidisciplinary conference on psychedelic consciousness” to be held on the 2nd and 3rd of April at the University of Kent, Canterbury. The speaker list reads a bit like a who’s who from our own Darklore anthology series: Paul Devereux, Mike Jay, David Luke, along with Graham Hancock, Andy Letcher, Amanda Feilding, Mike Crowley, and Rick Doblin, as well as video presentations from Stan Grof, Ram Dass and Ralph Metzner. There will also be screenings of a number of films about the psychedelic experience, including DMT: The Spirit Molecule and Aya: Awakenings.
At just £80 for the two days (£60 for students and seniors), this seems a damn fine way to spend the start of April…I’d be there if it wasn’t for half a globe worth of distance between me and Canterbury. Full details at the Breaking Convention website.
