In 1995, the Council on Spiritual Practices, along with the Chicago Theological Seminary, invited a group of professionals from diverse backgrounds in religion, psychology and mental health to a retreat on entheogens. Entheogens refer to psychoactive substances used for spiritual practices. The word is employed to separate them from hallucinogens and psychedelics, as those connote recreational drugs. Call me naive — I was totally unaware of the legal research and use of entheogens prior to the U.S. federal government outlawing the drugs. This book really enlightened me as to the history, practices and general sentiments of the diverse professionals who value entheogens as a valid and very worthwhile complement to spiritual practices. It’s been added to my Top 10 list of important books to read.
