Miracles Club: a comprehensive, culturally competent approach to addiction recovery

What started in 1993 with three men wishing to create a safe and sober environment to sustain the African American Community has evolved into the Miracles Club, a non-profit organization providing comprehensive support to individuals struggling to be free from alcohol and drug addiction. Earlier this summer, the Club passed a new milestone with the grand opening of its new location in northeast Portland that now provides 40 affordable housing units in a new sustainable facility as well as its traditional mentorships, clean and sober activities and family-oriented forums and presentations.

She'll speak with journalist Sarah Posner about the religious crusade against abortion in the Lone Star State. Posner details the shift in religious efforts against abortion in Texas, away from a national push led by major evangelicals towards a more local, militant strategy. While abortion hasn't played a central role in the presidential campaign, that, too, is a product of the shift in strategy: anti-choice activists are focused not on overturning Roe v. Wade (although that remains a crucial goal).

James Fadiman, PhD, discusses his book, "The Psychedelic Explorer's Guide"

James Fadiman, Ph.D., will discuss how old and new research on psychedelics shows their potential to enhance not only our personal well-being, but also the well-being of the culture at large. Fadiman, author of The Psychedelic Explorerer's Guide - Safe, Therapeutic and Sacred Journeys, studied with Dr. Richard Alpert (AKA: Ram Dass) at Harvard and pioneered research into LSD in the early 60's when it was still completely legal. His book covers how psychedelics can aid spiritual growth, therapeutics, and problem solving while emphasizing that for each of these, the intention, setting, substance/dosage and presence of a guide are of critical importance.
