Title:
Let Justice Roll Down: Relinquishing Psychedelic Healing for People of Color - Jamilah R. George
Description:

“There are people around this world who want to heal the trauma of those who fear that they can’t go on any further - and it is up to us to push that work forward. It is up to us to find ways to disseminate those resources and stop leaving them at the top, in the most elite research institutions…” This Sunday, we are excited to share a liberatory psychedelic sermon by Jamilah George, M.Div. In Let Justice Roll Down: Relinquishing Psychedelic Healing for People of Color, recorded at MAPS’ Psychedelics & Cultural Trauma workshop in Louisville, KY, in August 2019, Jamilah shares songs, stories, and reflections about freedom and justice, healing of intergenerational trauma, and accessibility to psychedelic care. Listen to her words and let them lift you!

Rev. Jamilah R. George, a native of Detroit, MI, obtained her Bachelor's from the University of Michigan, completed her Master's training at Yale University, and is now pursuing a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at the University of Connecticut. Her research interests include obsessive-compulsive and related disorders, the psychological effects of discrimination and racial trauma on people of color, the neurological underpinnings of these disorders, and the potential promise of psychedelic medicine as a means to healing. Jamilah's passion for social justice and equality issues fuels her work as she advocates for the mental and holistic wellbeing of socially disenfranchised groups, including women, people of color, impoverished domestic and international communities, and the intersections therein. She will be delivering the message for Sunday's ecumenical service.
