Aleister Crowley on drugs? "When wasn't he?" you might say. Crowley's psychoactive intake was indeed phenomenal and the stuff of legend, but he was also a meticulous chronicler of his drug experiences and his writing on altered states and the psychology of addiction may be his most valuable contribution to the psychology of consciousness. In this talk, Gary Lachman will take a look at Crowley's experiments with and insights into a variety of intoxicating substances, from cannabis to cocaine, ether to anhalonium lewinii, and what his explorations on the fringes of the mind can tell us today.

Gary Lachman
Gary Joseph Lachman, also known as Gary Valentine, is an American writer and musician. He came to prominence in the mid-1970s as the bass guitarist for the punk rock/new wave band Blondie. He is now a full time writer and the author of twenty-one books on topics ranging from the evolution of consciousness to literary suicides, popular culture and the history of the occult.

"Lachman writes about philosophical and mystical ideas with exceptional grace, forcefulness and clarity."—The Washington Post
