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. 2015 will be our ninth 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.

Board Members

The New School for Social Research

Horizons is generously hosted by The New School for Social Research.

The New School for Social Research’s Concentration in Mental Health and Substance Abuse Counseling emphasizes the importance of understanding the unique relationship that exists between the individual and a substance.

Although the broader scientific community has paid significant attention to the deleterious consequences of substance misuse, research into the benefits of healthy relationships with substances and their clinical utility has been overlooked.

The collaboration between Horizons and the Substance Abuse Counseling track aims to promote advancement in the psychological study of psychedelic science.
