Sex, Drugs and The Healing Arts
Sex drugs and rock’n’roll goes the old adage… some may be able to conceive of music as a healing modality but sex… and drugs? Yet transcendent sex is as old as time itself, sexual healing is more than just a Marvin Gaye song, psychoactive plants are almost universally used throughout human cultures (as well as by animals!) and many drugs that are currently Schedule I are suddenly enjoying a renaissance in legitimate medical study for a range of disorders with surprising results. Come find out more with a presentation followed by group discussion.
Britta Wollman Love is a writer and activist who is passionate about drugs and sex. She campaigns to decriminalize sex work and end the war on drugs, with a strong belief that cognitive liberty and sexual freedom are human rights. As a graduate of the London School of Economics she wrote her dissertation on sex work in the UK. Her more recent research is grounded in humanity’s rich history of healing and connecting to the divine through sacred sexuality and psychoactive plant medicines. She is currently enrolled at Goddard College completing a master’s degree in Consciousness Studies. Brittany is based in NYC where she writes a blog on sex, drugs and consciousness (www.TheDailyTransmission.com) and advocates with the Sex Worker’s Outreach Project of New York City (SWOP-NYC) and the ibogaine movement.
