"Fascinating and provocative. A remarkable exploration of the boundaries of science and consciousness itself."-- Rupert Sheldrake, author of "The Presence of the Past" "Rick Strassman's pioneering research work with DMT, a natural psychedelic drug used by Amazonian Indians, raises fascinating questions about the neurochemical basis of experience and the feasibility of conducting human research with mind-altering drugs in a university medical center. Truly adventurous reading!"--Andrew Weil, M.D., author of "Spontaneous Healing" "This book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the mind, philosophy, the nature of reality, and spirituality." --Karl Jansen, M.D., Ph.D. ""DMT: The Spirit Molecule" points the way beyond the present impasse of the reigning 'drug abuse' paradigm." --Jonathan Ott, author of "The Age of Entheogens" and "Hallucinogenic Plants of North America" "The most extensive scientific study of the mental and perceptual effects of a psychedelic drug since the 1960s."--Ralph Metzner, Ph.D., author of "Ayahuasca: Consciousness and the Spirits of Nature" "Strassman's important research contributes to a growing awareness that we inhabit a multi-dimensional universe." --John Mack, MD Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, author of "Abduction" and "Passport to the Cosmos" "Strassman raises vital questions about the origin of spiritual experiences and the nature of consciousness."--Larry Dossey MD, author of "Reinventing Medicine", and "Healing Words"; Executive Editor, "Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine" ""DMT: The Spirit Molecule" is a fascinating journey into the research of psychedelics. . . .
