Pharmacology of Consciousness or Pharmacology of Spirituality ? A Historical Review of Psychedelic Clinical Studies, Ismael Apud, 2016

Pharmacology of Consciousness or Pharmacology of Spirituality ? A Historical Review of Psychedelic Clinical Studies Ismael Apud The Journal of Transpersonal Psychology, 2016, Vol. 48, No. 2, 150-167.   ABSTRACT: In the second half of the twentieth century, when psychopharmacology was not developed as we know it today and psychoanalysis was an influential school, various psychiatrists began to develop a ‘pharmacology of consciousness,’ and became interested in hallucinogens as new paths for accessing the unconscious. However, with the psychedelic model, the pharmacology of consciousness turned also into a ‘pharmacology of spirituality,’ focused on the use of spiritual experiences as catalyzers of psychological change.

Published 2013 by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.   Psychedelics and other natural and synthetic substances have an ability to induce a range of transpersonal experiences.

Texas Peyote Culture, Kevin Feeney, 2018

Texas Peyote Culture Kevin FEENEY Cactus and Succulent Journal, 2018, 90, (1), 29-38   Peyote (Lophophora williamsii (Lem.) Coult.) has deep roots in Texas, or a deep taproot to be precise. While Texas is currently home to a federally regulated peyote trade, where members of the Native American Church (NAC) can legally purchase peyote for use in religious ceremonies, archaeological sites in Texas, and neighboring Coahuila, also mark the earliest known ceremonial associations between humans and peyote. It is believed that the peyote rituals of the Huichol, Nahua, Tarahumara, Cora, Tepehuan, and more recently the NAC, all trace their origins to the peyote gardens [...]

Much emphasis has been placed on the occurrence of mystical-type experiences in determining long-term responses to psychedelics yet here we demonstrate the importance of another component, namely: emotional breakthrough. Methods : Three hundred and seventy-nine participants completed online surveys before and after a planned psychedelic experience. Items pertaining to emotional [...]
