Panel Discussion on DMT Including An EGC Bishop

LAMPS is hosting a panel discussion, “Can the God Molecule Save The World?” on February 17, 6-8PM PST with a panel including EGC Bishop Merrill Ward. The posted description says:

These are the times: the world is facing runaway climate change and extreme weather, the old normal is dead, and the New World Order beckons. Can 5-MEO-DMT play a crucial part in our collective awakening process in time? While science is demonstrating both mental and physical healing from 5-MeO, this healing cannot be separated from the mystical experience it can engender. And as corporadelic companies plan to absorb 5-MeO into the medical model, 5-churches are blossoming to provide community containers for the intimate and sacred spiritual nature of this experience. At the same time, 5-MeO vape pens have arrived in the underground, which could bring God to the masses, just as everything’s falling apart. And is this a good thing? How do we navigate these accelerating changes with care – and should we be open to radical ideas that could bring 5-MeO to millions? Can a collective 5-MeO awakening shift the status quo in time to save the world, or to enter the next? This will be a provocative discussion on the new frontier of 5-MeO in the world.
