Reviews

“I love this book! The interviews (really, intimate conversations) are emotionally intense, insightful, and revelatory. Each is a deep dive into a life transformed early on by psychedelic revelations and also matured, deepened, and revised over decades of continued psychedelic use. Finally able to be shared, here is the knowledge and experience of elders, shared life lessons of caring and compassion. A book of gifts, of gratitude, and so much to be learned.”
*James Fadiman, PhD, microdose researcher, author of The Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide, and coau*

“The publishing of Psychedelic Wisdom could not have come at a better time. Psychotherapists, neuroscientists, creatives, and spiritual seekers are discovering and rediscovering the amazing potential of psychedelic substances. These substances can promote psychological healing and facilitate problem-solving. They can be used as tools to study brain function and the nature of consciousness. They can produce feelings of wonder, sacredness, and transcendence.

“All of these topics and more are explored in this collection of in-depth interviews with elder scientists, therapists, professors, artists, and doctors. Over the years, these leaders have experimented with and employed psychedelic substances in their personal and professional lives. Their experiences have been well-seasoned by time, and yet they remain fresh as the morning dew.

“Dr. Miller has a way, a gift really, of opening the right doors with his questions for his guests. He then encourages them to freely express and follow the stream of consciousness that ensues. As these explorers share their stories, their ‘confessions’ provide a peek into the vast range of experiences accessible with these remarkable substances.”
*Nicholas V. Cozzi, PhD, educator and scientist at the University of Wisconsin–Madison School o*

“The dialogues featured in Psychedelic Wisdom shimmer with insight. The degree of candor, wit, and understanding reflected in its pages is unmatched among the psychedelic literature that is currently flooding into the marketplace. Lest there be any doubt, the high-minded wisdom of this book is needed now more than ever.”
*J. Christian Greer, PhD, research fellow at Yale University Institute of Sacred Music*

“Dr. Miller has memorialized the transformational stories of visionary elders who are laying the foundation of a psychedelic renaissance that will illuminate humanity’s future for centuries to come.”
*Jerry and Julie Brown, coauthors of The Psychedelic Gospels*

“A fascinating, unique, disarming, and intimate glimpse of the earliest taproots of the current blossoming revolution in spiritual and mental health.”
*Dean Edell, MD, radio and television broadcaster and author of Eat, Drink, and Be Merry*
