Celebrate Journalist Madison Margolin’s new book, Exile & Ecstasy

Thursday, November 16, 2023 @ 6:30 pm

This event is free and open to the public.

Through the perspective of having grown up among “HinJews” in the Ram Dass community and cannabis legalization movement, journalist Madison Margolin takes the reader on a journey inside New York’s Jewish counterculture and the Hasidic underground, reconciling her roots, tackling ancestral Jewish trauma, and finding intersectionality between the Jewish and psychedelic experience.


Exile and Ecstasy sets out to explore the psychedelic path that occupies the crossroads between the Ram Dass movement and Hasidism. It’s a path of seeking and escape, rebellion and return, medicine and magic.


This book is for anyone looking to feel spiritually kindled, to make peace with where they come from, and to reconcile seemingly disparate experiences of spirituality and psychedelics, with traditional religion.


The discussion will be followed by a Q&A.
