About Us

Horizons is an annual forum for learning about psychedelics in New York City. Its goal is to open a fresh dialogue on their role in medicine, culture, history, spirituality, and creativity. 2013 is its seventh year.

During the 1960s, psychedelics entered worldwide popular culture. Fueled by the wild social dogmas of the era, recreational use become commonplace. Questions about their safety and value for were answered with myths and confusion spread by both their users, proponents, the media and the government.

In recent years, a small group of dedicated researchers and scholars have orchestrated a renaissance in psychedelic research and thought. Horizons brings together the brightest minds and the boldest voices of this movement to share their research, insights, and dreams for the future.
