Hey readers, on Monday, May 15th at 7pm we'll be hosting a new book club: Psychedelic Passage!!!
Psychedelic Passage is a group devoted to exploring, discussing, and understanding the latest developments in psychedelic research. We are in the midst of a psychedelic renaissance, and some of the world's most brilliant and creative scientific minds are starting to unlock the secrets of these miraculous medicines. Our mission is to dive deep into this scientific research and do our best, as non-scientists, to keep abreast of these thrilling developments in neuroscience, psychology, psychiatry, consciousness, and the nature of mind and spiritual experience.
At our May meeting, we'll be focusing on a phenomenon that, as of yet, has been paid scant scientific attention - the practice of LSD microdosing, that is, taking small, subperceptual amounts of LSD every three or four days to enhance creativity, cognition, productivity, and concentration. Rather than exploring a scientific article, we'll be discussing the exciting new book by Ayelet Waldman, A Really Good Day: How Microdosing Made a Mega Difference in my Mood, My Marriage, and My Life. Ms. Waldman shares with us her moving personal story of a life made all too painful by her decades-long struggle with psychiatric disorders that were not amenable to treatment, and were indeed made far worse, by conventional pharmaceuticals. With seemingly nowhere else to turn, she stumbled upon the book, A Psychedelic Explorer's Guide, which described microdosing, a practice for which even LSD's accidental inventor, Albert Hoffman, held out great hope. What follows is an inspiring story of Ms. Waldman's personal transformation with the help of this sacred medicine.
All are welcome, and no prior knowledge of microdosing or psychedelics is required. All you need is curiosity and a love of learning!
