Product description

The Psychedelic Experience, created by the prophetic shaman-professors Timothy Leary, Ralph Metzer and Richard Alpert, is a foundational text that serves as a model and a guide for all subsequent mind-expanding inquiries. In this wholly unique book, the authors provide an interpretation of an ancient sacred manuscript, the Tibetan Book of the Dead, from a psychedelic perspective. The Psychedelic Experience describes their discoveries in broadening spiritual consciousness through a combination of Tibetan mediation techniques and psychotropic substances.

Author information

Timothy Leary was one of the most famous countercultural icons of the 1960s. Labelled as the 'Most Dangerous Man in America', Leary had many run-ins with the law and served several prison sentences. He dies in 1996; the following year seven grams of his ashes were launched into space aboard a Pegasus rocket. Ralph Metzner is a professor of psychology at the California Institute for Integral Studies and president of the Green earth Foundation. RICHARD ALPERT is a former professor who conducted controversial LSD experiments with Leary at Harvard. He is considered one of the most important spiritual teachers of the 20th century.
