The microprogram in Psychedelics & Spirituality Studies is situated at the intersection of several disciplines, including Religion, Psychology, Anthropology, and Health. It involves the examination of the spiritual, ritual, and therapeutic uses of psychedelics and other non-ordinary states of consciousness, cross-culturally and throughout history. Plant medicines have constituted an important part of humanity's ritual and religious traditions for millennia. The capacity of plant medicines to evoke feelings of empathy and gratitude, as well as insight and a sense of meaningfulness, have made them important tools for human spirituality and wellbeing and have, in recent years, led them to become the focus of renewed scientific interest.
