What is the future of consciousness hacking? Organic molecules, blinky machines, good old fashioned meditation, or some combination of them all? Join Michael Taft of Deconstructing Yourself, Vincent Horn of Buddhist Geeks, and host Mikey Siegel as they discuss the possibilities, the challenges, and the many ways forward in the transformation of human consciousness.  After the presenters kick it off the conversation will open up to everyone attending as we engage in a group dialogue on psychedelics, technology, and the future of meditation.
