What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence
Dive into the world of psychedelics with Michael Pollan’s No. 1 New York Times best-selling book. The former food journalist takes readers on a very approachable journey through the old and new science of psychedelics.
The book also covers the rich and widely unknown history of psychedelic research. From Albert Hoffman’s discovery of LSD in 1938, through the booming 1950s/1960s research and resulting counter-culture movement, up until the modern day psychedelic renaissance, Pollan doesn’t skip a beat.
Pollan spends time with and interviews mycologist Paul Stamets, which is covered in Chapter 2 – Be Mushroomed: A Natural History. Not only do we learn about psilocybin from Stamets, but also the world of mycelium.
Anyone looking to learn more about psychedelics should pick up this book.
“The Wake Immersion was an overall amazing experience with a great community of people. The safe and comfortable environment allowed me to do the inner work I needed to progress with my life as a father, husband and business leader.”
Our immersions center around advanced mushrooms containing psilocybin. Psilocybin is a psychoactive compound being investigated by scientific academia for its potential to restructure brain cells and heal trauma, disorders and illness.
