Fantasyland Michael Pollan masterfully guides us through the highs, lows, and highs again of psychedelic drugs How to Change Your mind chronicles how its been a longer and stranger trip than most any of us knew Daniel Goleman, co author Altered Traits Science Reveals How Meditation Changes Your Mind, Brain and Body Very few writers, if any, have the gravitas and journalistic cred to tackle this explosive subjectfrom both the outside and the insideextract it from its nationally traumatic and irrationally over reactive past, and bring both reason and revelatory insight to it Michael Pollan has done just that This is investigative journalism at its rigorous and compelling best and radically mind opening in so many ways just to read it Jon Kabat Zinn, founder of mindfulness based stress reduction, and author of Full Catastrophe Living and Coming to Our Senses Michael Pollan assembles a great deal of information here on the history, science, and effects of psychedelics I found his frank recounting of his recent experiences with LSD, psilocybin, and toad venom most revealing They appear to have softened his materialistic views and opened him to the possibilities of higher consciousness He did, indeed, change his mind Andrew Weil, author of The Natural Mind and 8 Weeks to Optimum Health Do psychedelics open a door to a different reality, or is it just the same old, same old reality seen through a different set of lenses I quickly became engrossed in Pollans narrative the intersection of science, consciousness enhancing, and government prohibition But at the center of Pollans story is the greatest conundrum of all why should substances that have been so beneficial to so many people, be the focus of crazy criminal penalties Why, indeed Errol Morris Michael Pollan has applied his brilliant mind and fastidious prose to the Mind itself, specifically the modes by which psychedelic substances temporarily obliterate the ego and engender deep spiritual connectedness to the universe Michael walks the tight rope between an objective reporter and a spiritual pilgrim seeking insight and sustenance from psychedelics, and his innocence and integrity serve as a balance bar between cynicism and partisan affirmation His success here places these drugs and what they do at the center of a potential revolution in medicine Its an extraordinary achievement, and no matter what you may think you know about psychedelics, if you even know the word, you should read this book Peter Coyote, author and Zen Buddhist Priest After 50 years underground, psychedelics are back We are incredibly fortunate to have Michael Pollan be our travel guide for their renaissance With humility, humor, and deep humanity, he takes us through the history, the characters, and the science of these mind manifesting compounds Along the way, he navigates the mysteries of consciousness, spirituality, and the mind What he has done previously for gardeners and omnivores, Pollan does brilliantly here for all of us who wonder what it means to be fully human, or even what it means to be Thomas R Insel, MD, former director of National Institute of Mental Health and co founder and president of Mindstrong HealthA rare and utterly engrossing exposition that will most certainly delineate a fundamental change in the understanding of the human mind and the mystery of consciousness Pollan previously reshaped our knowledge of earthly landscapes in his writings With this book, he transforms our understanding of the innerscape, the unbounded world we occupy every conscious second of our life experienced by thoughts, suffering, awareness, joy, and reasoning This is than a bookit is a treasure Paul Hawken, author of Blessed UnrestThe 1 New York Timesbestseller.A brilliant and brave investigationinto the medical and scientific revolution taking place around psychedelic drugs and the spellbinding story of his own life changing psychedelic experiences When Michael Pollan set out to research how LSD and psilocybin the active ingredient in magic mushrooms are being used to provide relief to people suffering from difficult to treat conditions such as depression, addiction and anxiety, he did not intend to write what is undoubtedly his most personal book But upon discovering how these remarkable substances are improving the lives not only of the mentally ill but also of healthy people coming to grips with the challenges of everyday life, he decided to explore the landscape of the mind in the first person as well as the third Thus began a singular adventure into various altered states of consciousness, along with a dive deep into both the latest brain science and the thriving underground community of psychedelic therapists Pollan sifts the historical record to separate the truth about these mysterious drugs from the myths that have surrounded them since the 1960s, when a handful of psychedelic evangelists inadvertently catalyzed a powerful backlash against what was then a promising field of research.A unique and elegant blend of science, memoir, travel writing, history, and medicine, How to Change Your Mind is a triumph of participatory journalism By turns dazzling and edifying, it is the gripping account of a journey to an exciting and unexpected new frontier in our understanding of the mind, the self, and our place in the world The true subject of Pollan s mental travelogue is not just psychedelic drugs but also the eternal puzzle of human consciousness and how, in a world that offers us both suffering and joy, we can do our best to be fully present and find meaning in our lives.
