Psychedelics Made Me What I Am

with Caveh Zahedi

We are thrilled to welcome Caveh Zahedi to present his most recent project, a live performance in which he tells the story of his experiences with hallucinogens over a 25 year period.

The performance will be followed by a Q+A.

Psychedelics Made Me What I Am

80 min, 2019

I have been experimenting with psychedelics for over 35 years and filming these drug trips. About 25 years ago, I discovered the ideas of Terence McKenna who urges people to take what he calls “heroic doses” of mushrooms, as opposed to what he calls “recreational doses.” I began experimenting with heroic doses (three times the amount of a recreational dose) and started having experiences that I can only describe as becoming “possessed.”
