Tickets are offered in four tiers, on the honor system. Please purchase tickets at the highest level you are able. This is the most affordable weekend-long psychedelic learning and community event in North America. If most people purchase at the minimum level, we will simply have to raise prices for everyone next year.

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. 2014 is its eighth 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.
