‘The Wild Kindness’ and the Psychedelic Experience:

Bett Williams’ lyrical, unforgettable memoir, The Wild Kindness: A Psilocybin Odyssey (Dottir Press, 2020), takes us on her hypnotic, psilocybin-fueled journey toward understanding the world around her and, in turn, herself. Williams’ experiences take us across America from Standing Rock to Huautla de Jiménez, MX where the legendary curandera María Sabina spent her life. She chronicles and confronts both the complexities of interpersonal relationships, colonialism and exploitation as well as the richness of love, chaos and transcendence. What is the psychedelic experience? What can we learn from it?

Williams is joined by Chicago and Washington, D.C.-based Soma Phoenix, a psychedelic researcher and integration consultant who spent years in pharmaceutical litigation as a litigation support attorney. In this virtual webinar, Williams will read passages from The Wild Kindness between discussions with Phoenix and conclude with questions from the audience.
