David Patrick Harry

Religion Scholar

My name is David Patrick Harry, I’m a PhD student at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, CA and I’ve been studying world religion for the last decade of my life. My undergraduate studies focused on East Asian traditions, specifically Taosim, Buddhism, and Hinduism, while also spending two summers in southern China at Sun-Yat Sen University studying  Mandarin. My masters research at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign revolved around Early Christianity and psychedelic shamanism. However, my doctoral work focuses on a critical analysis of modern religious trends in America, specifically psychedelic forms of spirituality, but includes New Age religion and the rise in popularity of occultism.
