Long-term personal study of psychological and spiritual
growth, using several psychedelics (LSD, MDMA, 2C-B, 2C-T7,
2C-E, others). Awareness to free oneself into joy, being
immersed in heavenly light, the Presence of God, and sublime
heights. Also work on inner psychological problems and
difficult mental states. Forward by Sasha and Ann Shulgin.
Excellent study of brief history of MDMA, who uses it, why
they use it, why they quit, and problems of use, based on a
research survey. They recommend a social policy of harm
reduction and research into its therapeutic potentials. Best
book for policy making. Also good user advice.
