Carl Jung understood that psychedelic substances provide access to the deepest realms of the unconscious, and Jungian psychology provides penetrating insights into psychedelic experiences. With the resurgence of research into the therapeutic potential of substances like LSD, psilocybin, and MDMA, the time is ripe for discussing the rich relationship between psychedelic research and Jungian psychology. Scott Hill will first cover Jung’s explanation of psychedelic experience and the challenge of integrating unconscious material released during a psychedelic session. He will then discuss difficult psychedelic experiences (“bad trips”) in the light of Jung’s approach to trauma, the shadow, psychosis, and transformation. Dr. Hill will also consider the transformative potential of psychedelic-induced religious experiences. 
 
Dr. Hill’s presentation will include dialogue with Dr. Alan Ruskin and Dr. Charles Garfield and opportunities for audience contributions.
