Come and spend an evening with renowned speaker and bestselling author, Dr. Gabor Maté. Dr. Maté will talk about his life and work, from what led him to the field of medicine and the beginnings of his practice, to his twelve years working in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside with patients challenged by hard-core drug addiction, mental illness and HIV, to his more recent interest in the therapeutic potential of psychedelic plants. Rather than offering quick-fix solutions to complex health and social issues, Dr. Maté weaves together scientific research, case histories, and his own insights and experience to present a broad perspective that enlightens and empowers people to promote their own healing and that of those around them.
