I’ve just joined NEIP! To quote from their website:
“The NEIP – Interdisciplinary Group for Psychoactive Studies – was founded in 2001 and is a center for study of psychoactive substances that brings together scholars in the Human Sciences affiliated with various institutions to promote joint reflection on the topic. The NEIP has functioned above all as a space for academic dialogue useful in developing our own research. “
It is headed up by Bia Labate who is one of the preeminent scholars, both in Brazil and internationally, on Ayahuasca. I am extremely honored to be allowed to join, and am very excited about the opportunity. My profile has been put up here, and a PDF of one of my essays on ayahuasca has been published over here!
Very, very exciting stuff!
