Description

Called "America's wisest and most respected authority on psychedelics and their use", James Fadiman has been involved with psychedelic research since the 1960s. In this guide to the immediate and long-term effects of psychedelic use for spiritual (high dose), therapeutic (moderate dose), and problem-solving (low dose and microdose) purposes, Fadiman outlines best practices for safe, sacred entheogenic voyages learned through his more than 40 years of experience - from the benefits of having a sensitive guide during a session (and how to be one) to the importance of the setting and pre-session intention. 

Fadiman reviews the newest as well as the neglected research into the psychotherapeutic value of visionary drug use for increased personal awareness and a host of serious medical conditions, including his recent study of the reasons for and results of psychedelic use among hundreds of students and professionals. He reveals new uses for LSD and other psychedelics, including microdosing, extremely low doses for improved cognitive functioning and emotional balance. Cautioning that psychedelics are not for everyone, he dispels the myths and misperceptions about psychedelics circulating in textbooks and clinics as well as on the Internet.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Great Info but...

I found the information provided in the audio book to be important and helpful but a lot of the content lends itself better in print form. It was difficult to follow the science portions and test cases provided in the audio book format. Just something to keep it mind when trying to decide between the audio or print version.

Underwhelming for the initiated

There are a handful of earnest attempts to share entheogenic experiences in the last 3 hours very moving stuff that I think many walkers can relate to. A “darkness retreat” also sounded worthwhile; but overall, just for me, I guess I wanted more. More stories to see if we are all experiencing a similar connection. I don’t know what I expected to be honest, and there are great safety tips for those putting toes in the pool; but I guess if I’m honest I wanted an Alan Watts figure to walk me through his ideas and take aways from several decades of researching psychedelics and the human experience. A high bar I know. Haha, I just wish an 80 year old shaman would write a book of their experiences with people, gods and the plans that bind us.

I suppose I should be the change I want to see, right?

unlistenable

Terrible narration and a book structure/format that doesn’t lend itself well to an audiobook (too many headings and subheadings in the text). Gave up early on which is unfortunate given my interest in the subject matter.

Listen at 1.25 speed

I found that speeding up the slow-ish narration made the book much more conversational and easier to consume.

Hard to listen to

Everything that normally is put in the foot notes and list of reading on the topic here is read painfully slow out loud. Hence performance is almost unbearable.
The story adds nothing to other much better books like Michael Pollan's volume on the same subject.
A bunch of links to various web pages that were read out loud in this book might be valuable, I wrote down a few but have not seen them yet.
If I knew what this book is I would have not bought it.

Lots of information

As an eminent researcher and shepherd to future guides and researched this is a comprehensive point in time look at psychedelic experience and exposure in our country. It is sometimes tedious to follow. Lack of high quality current research (because of government bans) means there is quite a bit of annecdotal evidence and story reports. Hopefully this book continues the tradition of psychedelics for personal growth and healing.

Not what I expected

Cool book. But, it seems to go over the same material in different chapters and repeats some information more than needed. I lost interest during a long segment of LSD trip reports, but still finished.

Very disappointing

Because of the publication date I had high hopes. Unfortunately the presentation is disjointed, and rambling. At times the book seems to be an autobiography as the author spends a lot of time lavishing praise on himself. The narrator's voice is flat. Listening to the book was a painful experience. Since the author spends an inordinate amount of time talking about varouus web sites, my advice is to spend your time exploring the material on the web rather than waste your money on this book.

Great for my journey

I was interested in a entheogenic journey and this book was great at guiding me towards the set & setting needed for great results.
I listed to it several times and highly recommend it.

Great book, stilted narration

The content of the book is fabulous but the narrator reads in a robotic fashion - horrible

already knew everything

it was good narrated but it was pretty repatative and felt like reading a bunch of trip reports. it was also more biased than actually scientific even though it has some nice facts and guides in it. But nothing mindblowing.
