Attend From Shock to Awe, a Documentary Screening on November 12, 7:30-9:45pm.
From Shock to Awe tells the story on how do we heal our deepest wounds. It shows the intimate transformational journey of two U.S. combat veterans (and their families) who suffer from severe trauma, abandoning pharmaceuticals to seek relief through the mind-expanding world of cannabis, ayahuasca, and MDMA. Recent scientific research coupled with a psychedelic renaissance reveals that these substances can be used to heal PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) for individuals and their families. Beyond the personal stories, From Shock to Awe illuminates fundamental questions about war, the pharmaceutical industry, and the US legal system.
Tickets must be purchased before November 5.
