I don’t believe everyone should take psychedelics, but I do believe that psychedelics are for everyone.
In 2019 I had an opportunity to experience a guided psilocybin (magic mushroom) journey, and it completely changed my worldview. Since then, I have gone from someone who had never taken any drugs, with the exception of a few experiences with cannabis, to a deep dive into the study of human consciousness with the help of psilocybin, ayahuasca, ketamine, LSD, MDMA, DMT, 5-MeO-DMT, and more.
Thirty years after my last science class, I went back to school to get a Master of Science degree in the Psychology and Neuroscience of Mental Health so I could better understand the biology and the psychological foundation that psychedelic psychotherapy is building upon. I have gone to numerous conferences and retreats and sought out conversations with spiritual leaders and medical professionals who regularly use psychedelics as tools to help people navigate through life. I have spoken with hundreds of people whose lives have been transformed by the power of psychedelics.
While I’m not suggesting that psychedelics are a panacea that will solve all of life’s problems, I am confident that they can play a powerful role in healing and connection, both for the people that choose to use them and for those that do not. This is what I mean by Psychedelics for Everyone.
While there is a lot of information on psychedelics available, there is a lack of resources for the average person. When I first became interested in learning about psychedelics, I found the majority of the literature to be either too technical, too woo-woo, or too opinionated.
This book is my attempt to gather accurate information on a number of different psychedelic medicines and put them into one place for easy reference. Though written for people with a non-science background, many of the chapters in this book have been medically reviewed for accuracy. A source of unbiased, science-based insights and practical guidance for safe use, my intention for this book is to share information that anyone can read, understand, and trust.
I am an accidental psychonaut. Psychedelics have shown me a world that I didn’t know existed and have changed the trajectory of my life. I am eternally grateful to have the opportunity to share this wisdom with you.
