Publisher Comments:

Explores scientific and medical research on the emerging uses of psychedelics to enrich mind, morals, spirituality, and creativity andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;andbull; Outlines a future that embraces psychedelics as tools for cognitive development, personal growth, business, and an experience-based religious reformation andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;andbull; Presents research on the use of psychedelics to enhance problem-solving, increase motivation, boost the immune system, and deepen ethical values andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;andbull; Includes chapters by Roger N. Walsh, M.D., Ph.D., and Charles Grob, M.D., on their psychedelic research on religious experience and alleviating the fear of death andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;As psychedelic psychotherapy gains recognition through research at universities and medical establishments such as the Johns Hopkins Medical Institute and Bellevue Hospital, the other beneficial uses of psychedelics are beginning to be recognized and researched as well--from enhancing problem-solving and increasing motivation to boosting the immune system and deepening moral and ethical values. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;Exploring the bright future of psychedelics, Thomas B. Roberts, Ph.D., reveals how new uses for entheogens will enrich individuals as well as society as a whole. With contributions from Charles Grob, M.D., and Roger N. Walsh, M.D., Ph.D., the book explains how psychedelics can raise individual and business attitudes away from self-centeredness, improve daily life with strengthened feelings of meaningfulness and spirituality, and help us understand and redesign the human mind, leading to the possibility of a neurosingularity--a time when future brains surpass our current ones. Roberts envisions a future where you will seek psychedelic therapy not only for psychological reasons but also for personal growth, creative problem solving, improved brain function, and heightened spiritual awareness. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;Our psychedelic future is on the horizon--a future that harnesses the full potential of mind and spirit--and Thomas Roberts outlines a path to reach it.
