Confessions of Psychedelic Elders
Following my delightful interview with New York City psychoanalyst Charley Wininger, during which he openly spoke about his decades of responsible, recreational experimentation with psychedelic medicines, I am inspired to conduct a series of interviews with prominent psychotherapists, authors, and other public figures on their personal use of psychedelics, entitled “Confessions of Psychedelic Elders.”
On Tuesday, December 15, 2020 (9am PACIFIC), we will hear the confessions of two nationally-known doctors, David Geisinger and Howard Levene.
Dr. David L. Geisinger, is the 82-year-old author of Kicking It: The New Way to Stop Smoking and Permanently Going The Distance: Finding and Keeping Lifelong Love, written with his life partner, Dr. Lonnie Barbach.
Dr. Howard I. Levene – 85-year-old former Commander and medical officer in the U.S. Navy – is founder of Diabasis House, and a faculty member at the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco and Department of Psychiatry, UCSF Medical School.
