"In the mid-1960s, Harvard University psychology professor Timothy Leary and his colleagues ... conducted a series of experiments with LSD and other psychedelic drugs until negative national media attention led to the suspension of their program. But they continued their pursuits in non-academic surroundings. The Psychedelic Experience is a manual based on their studies."--Back cover.

Review: The Psychedelic Experience: A Manual Based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead

User Review  - Rafael Blayze - Goodreads

When discovering new avenues of approach it's always good to have a guide. At worst you're a bit uncomfortable, at best you come out unscathed and a bit wiser. This book is not only for the psychonaut. Many can benefit from the words of wisdom inlayed within these pages. Read full review
