Join us for the September meeting of the Browsers Nonfiction Book Club.
We will discuss How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Depression and Transcendence by Michael Pollan. The discussion will be led by customer Elizabeth Suffern. If you have any questions, please email Andrea.
More about the book:
A brilliant and brave investigation into the medical and scientific revolution taking place around psychedelic drugs--and the spellbinding story of his own life-changing psychedelic experiences
A unique and elegant blend of science, memoir, travel writing, history, and medicine, How to Change Your Mind is a triumph of participatory journalism. By turns dazzling and edifying, it is the gripping account of a journey to an exciting and unexpected new frontier in our understanding of the mind, the self, and our place in the world. The true subject of Pollan's "mental travelogue" is not just psychedelic drugs but also the eternal puzzle of human consciousness and how, in a world that offers us both suffering and joy, we can do our best to be fully present and find meaning in our lives.
Our book discussions aim to bring people together to talk about books in a safe and inviting atmosphere. Our meetings are inclusive; we invite you to attend. You don't have to RSVP, just come and enjoy a lively discussion about the chosen book with other readers.
The books are available in store at 15% off if you plan to attend the book club.
