Psychedelic Science Summit: Austin, Texas (November 1-3, 2019)

Speaker: Natalie Lyla Ginsberg, M.S.W.

A collaboration between MAPS and the Centre for Psychedelic Research at Imperial College London, Antwan Saca, Leor Roseman, Ph.D., and Natalie Ginsberg, M.S.W., interviewed 36 Palestinians and Israelis who drink ayahuasca in joint circles, in an effort to learn how ayahuasca might promote peace through collective healing and community building. Natalie presents a selection of interviewees’ stories and speak to the themes emerging from these interviews.

Natalie Lyla Ginsberg received her B.A. in history from Yale, and her master’s of social work (MSW) from Columbia. Before joining MAPS in 2014, Natalie worked as a Policy Fellow at the Drug Policy Alliance, where she helped legalize medical cannabis in her home state of New York, and worked to end New York’s race-based marijuana arrests. Natalie has also worked as a therapist at an alternative-sentencing court for prostitution and drug-related offenses, and as a middle school guidance counselor. At MAPS, Natalie works to disentangle science from political partisanship on Capitol Hill, at the United Nations, and beyond. She is also co-developing a psychedelic peace-building study with Imperial College, working with Palestinians and Israelis. Natalie is particularly inspired by the potential of psychedelics for healing systemic, intergenerational trauma, for building empathy and community, and for inspiring creative and innovative solutions.
