Raising the Bar: An Intimate Dinner Discussing the Future of Psychedelic Medicine

October 10, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 12:00 am

You are cordially invited to a dinner party on October 10, 2015, in the West Village, New York City.

Join us for an evening featuring good food, fine wine, warm hospitality, and the company of like-minded individuals. Share your views and help shape the public discourse about the role of psychedelics in medicine, therapy, and healing.

Enjoy intimate conversation with MAPS Founder and Executive Director Rick Doblin, Ph.D., during this unique opportunity to learn about the path to legalizing psychedelic medicine.

MAPS is currently conducting clinical research into MDMA-assisted psychotherapy as a treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a serious medical condition that is notoriously challenging to treat effectively. In ongoing controlled clinical trials, the administration of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy is helping some study participants overcome treatment- resistant PTSD. As research into MDMA-assisted psychotherapy continues with promising results, we are approaching a new phase of research that will require more clinical sites, more therapists, more patients, and more support.

With your help, we can improve public perception of psychedelics and raise the bar for PTSD treatment.
Proceeds from the dinner benefit MAPS psychedelic research and education projects.

Special guests to be announced.

$200 (single) or $350 (couple)
Doors open at 7:00pm. Dinner served at 8:00pm.
Limited space available.

Special thanks to Giancarlo Canavesio and Stephanie Long, and to host committee members Bailey Gimbel, Sir Ivan, Josh Mailman & Monica Winsor, Sam Victor Tabar, Michael & Devera Witkin (committee in formation).
