Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A brilliant and thoughtful book by one of the leading proponents of safe and responsible use of psychedelics, primarily LSD.

Although he acknowledges the spiritual power of entheogenic substances the main focus of the book is how to use these substances to enhance creativity. Based on his own research - together with Willis Harman - in the 60s. As well as eye witness accounts from recent times. Also touching on the (controversial) subject of regular use of low dose LSD in every day (work) life.

The book has many scopes. accounts of the mind and career changing events for the early pioneers like Albert Hofmann, Aldous Huxley, Timothy Leary, Huston Smith and Stan Grof. Interviews with James Fadiman himself taken from Higher Wisdom (SUNY Series in Transpersonal and Humanistic Psychology)and Time it Was: American Stories from the Sixties.

Although Fadiman clearly defines himself as a law abiding citizen this book DO contain some well thought out and reasonable criteria for a succesful session. Especially focusing on the need of an experienced guide (who does NOT- unlike in the Leary experiments - take the substance her self). Personally I think there can be arguments for self experimentation with out outside helpers - as described in Acid Diaries: A Psychonauts Guide to the History and Use of LSD. As even the most emphatetic guide might influence and subtly shape the experience.

The book starts out by stating the information is only about serious therapeutic and spiritual experiences - not for tripping for the fun of it. It stays quite scientific and covers many subjects related to psychedelics. Many co-writers offer their opinions through out the book making it diverse. If you want to know how the psycedelics might be used for specific and targeted experiences in both therapy, self exploration and problem solving, this book is very informing.

Jimmy Fadiman's one and only concern is our well being. Understanding that there are limits to conventional medicine, with some doing more harm than good, Dr Fadiman opens the vaults to a once taboo topic and contemplates the benefits of psychedelics in the field if psychotherapy and beyond....
An amazing book by an even more amazing person ....
