Dr. Future - July 26th, Author James Fadiman and his "Psychedelic Explorers Guide-safe, therapeutic and sacred journeys"
Our guest today invisions a future where we are able to embark on safe, therapeutic, and sacred psychedelic journeys. Here’s what a few sages on the topic have to say about Dr. Fadiman and his new book:
“James Fadiman, one of the foremost pioneers of scientific research of the potential of psychedelic substances for therapy, self-discovery, spiritual quests, and creative problem-solving, has written an invaluable guide for safe and productive sessions. Based on more than forty years of the author’s experience in the field and presented in a clear, easily understandable style, this book is a breath of fresh air, dispelling the mis-information that has been disseminated over many decades by sensation-hunting journalists and fear-based antidrug propaganda. The publication of The Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide could not be more timely; it coincides with a major renaissance of interest in psychedelic research worldwide. The information that it provides will thus be useful not only for the hundreds of thousands of people involved in self-experimentation but also for the new generation of psychedelic researchers.”
(Stanislav Grof, M.D., author of LSD: Doorway to the Numinous )
“James Fadiman was the Forrest Gump of the psychedelic sixties. He witnessed the first flowerings of that amazing era of mindexpansion, then kept popping up for cameo appearances whenever the action got particularly interesting and enlightening. Now, riding a new wave of scientific research into the beneficial use of these misunderstood substances, Fadiman is back with a practical and at the same time inspiring guidebook for the next generation of entheogenic explorers.”
(Don Lattin, author of the bestselling The Harvard Psychedelic Club )
“Approaching his subject from intimately historical, psychological-cultural, and accessibly authoritative perspectives, Fadiman’s psychedelic magnum opus establishes the benchmark reference for anyone interested in understanding, experiencing, or supervising the effects of this unique family of psychoactive substances.”
(Rick Strassman, M.D., clinical associate professor of psychiatry at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine and author of DMT: The Spirit Molecule )
