About this Event

The Chalice is a monthly psychedelic salon held at the Berkeley Alembic. Instead of the mainstream focus on clinical trials, legal frameworks, and psychotherapy, The Chalice will draw from the deeper humanistic wells of history, poetry, the gods, ethnobotany, humor, and mystery. The first half of each gathering will feature a talk or special guest interview; we are particularly devoted to centering elders and members of the underground. The second half of the evening is designed to develop the community, with possible breakout groups and peer-to-peer discussion, and more questions than answers.

For the December Chalice, Erik Davis will give a talk on the complex ways that current psychedelic discourse and practice are attempting to balance and integrate the claims of religion and science.

The co-hosts for Chalice are Erik Davis, author and Alembic co-founder; Maria Mangini, co-founder of the Women’s Visionary Council and old-school head; and Christian Greer, currently a lecturer on counterculture at Stanford University.
