“At the contemplative core,” says Roger Walsh, “the great religions are road maps for inducing transcendent states of consciousness.” And shamanism, one of the most ancient and direct forms of religious experience, may be “a viable technology for inducing altered states for allowing people to access the intuitive wisdom within.” Walsh compares psychedelic and “genuine” mystical experiences, and delves into the use of psychoactive substances in both their original sacred contexts and in modern life.
