In Search of the Ultimate Highby Anja Saunders, Nicholas Saunders, Michelle Pauli
Throughout history, people have taken mind-expanding substances, whether out of curiosity, a need for development, or a deep longing for something greater than themselves. This practical and unusual book looks specifically at the use of psychoactive drugs in the spiritual quest - at how those who honestly seek the truth have taken them, not as an escape route, but as a way to inspire their lives. Absorbing and wide-ranging, the book covers the use of psychoactives - from LSD, Magic Mushrooms, and Ecstasy to Ibogaine and Ayahuasca - in different societies and religions, including shamanism, New Age movements and Rave culture. There are fascinating personal accounts and clear medical and legal sections.
