Sunday October 14th – Espace Réunion (6610 rue Hutchison) – 6:15 PM – $15 / $20 (le mood day ticket)
Jewish-American writer and activist Daniel Sieradski’s will be coming up to Montreal for the Le Mood festival. His event there will examine allusions to mind-altering substances in the Torah and Hasidic literature, which may just explain some of our tradition’s greatest mysteries, while providing a framework for sensible drug policy. Questions and explorations may just include: Could the origins of human intelligence, spirituality and civilization lie within a mushroom? Could a halakhic framework for ritual consciousness exploration help stem the tide of drug abuse? Explore the “stoned ape” theory of human evolution and its implications for Jewish civilization.
