Revue de presse

Enter the shamans of science and the psychonauts of psychiatry Although books on psychedelics abound, volumes like The Psychedelic Renaissance show how the field is now addressing the substance of findings from recent research rather than the legions of case reports and anecdotes. Kelly Morris The Lancet Vol. 381 February16, 2013 --The Lancet Vol. 381 16-02-13

Présentation de l'éditeur

Can psychedelics do for psychiatry what the microscope did for biology and the telescope to astronomy? Can they be used to access on the depths of the psyche that are usually inaccessible? Psychedelic means: mind manifesting About the book Psychedelics were inextricably associated with the hippie counterculture of the 1960s and, more recently, with the rave music scene, and were once believed to hold great promise for treating a number of medical conditions as well as providing access to profound spiritual experiences. However, legal restrictions on the use of such drugs effectively forced them underground and brought clinical research to a halt until recently. In this book, psychiatrist Dr. Ben Sessa makes a persuasive case for the re-evaluation of psychedelics LSD, MDMA ( ecstasy ), DMT, psilocybin, ayahuasca, peyote, ibogaine, and more as he explores their clinical potential for treating a range of conditions from post-traumatic stress disorder and depression to autism and cluster headaches. Based on a thorough review of the evidence, Sessa corrects some common misconceptions about psychedelics and makes a clarion call for their responsible therapeutic use, with appropriate set and setting, in psychotherapy, psychiatry and personal growth. Topics covered in this book include: What are the drugs and why are they so controversial? How should they be safely and wisely used What is the nature of the psychedelic experience? What are the implications for psychiatry and for psycho-spiritual growth? With clarity and wit, the author surveys the contributions of major figures in the psychedelic movement from Huxley, Hofmann and Sandison to Leary, Grof and McKenna and takes the reader on a journey through the fascinating history of psychedelic plants and chemicals as he considers the crucial role such drugs have had in human culture from prehistory to modern times

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Definitive Text on an Issue That Needs Definition 1 décembre 2012
Par David Biddle - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I've written a review on The Psychedelic Renaissance that is exclusive to the members of, but here's the first paragraph:

"In the very near future, college courses at major universities will be offered using Ben Sessa's brilliant and comprehensive new book The Psychedelic Renaissance: Reassessing the Role of Psychedelic Drugs in 21st Century Psychiatry and Society. There can't be a better text out there to introduce thoughtful psychology, religion, or sociology students to all things psychedelic. It probably wouldn't hurt to offer a class on psychedelics to first year medical students either. From the long history of altered states to a structured account of the psycho-chemical actions and the psychic healing potential of standard and designer mind altering drugs, this book provides a wealth of knowledge all in straightforward fashion."

If you want to claim you really understand what psychedelics are all about, you need to read this book.

This is one of the most all-encompassing books about psychedelics that I know of and would serve as an excellent introduction to psychedelic studies for both individual readers and for university courses. It is jammed packed with the essentials of psychedelia, trimmed to their essentials. The range is apparent from the chapter titles, and thanks to the index and a table of contents that lists subtopics, one can pinpoint a specific topic quickly.Extensive chapter notes support his text.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book for the XXI century era of Psychedelia 3 février 2013
Par Adrian @ Psychedelic Spirituality - Publié sur
Format: Broché
...The Psychedelic Renaissance is a book that you'll even want to buy for your parents. There may be two reasons for it:

1st - because they have discovered that you're using (omg!) drugs and they're concerned about you.

2nd - because they are hippies who may need a refreshment because psychedelics are coming back.

And last but not least - because it's a great introduction to psychedelics for everyone.

The book was written by a respected British psychiatrist who definitely knows what mind-altering drugs are and knows all dangers as well as the BENEFITS. Ben is not isolated in thinking that people can benefit from using psychedelics if they are used in a safe manner (just like knives, matches and window cleaner).

The doctor will take you on a trip through the ages, cultures, plants and substances. He will introduce you to the most influential people of the psychedelic eras (past and present). He will tell you about the use, users, places (he mentions Psychedelic Spirituality!) and his involvement in the TV show called Dirty Sanchez.

But remember, he's a psychiatrist who has a vision of introducing psychedelics into medicine. Needless to say - he has our full support. Besides, he has a good sense of humor (which is rather rare considering he's a shrink) and the book is an absolute pleasure to read.

If you want to know my opinion, I think he's one of the most sober drug proponets. It's a safe deal, get it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 So much awesome information 8 septembre 2013
Par Carrie - Publié sur

So much inforamation in one place! More people should read good, accurate, tested information about psychadelics. The world would be a more colorful place, and thats not such a bad thing. In the book it covers everything you could imagine and then a bunch you couldnt imagine. If your open minded enough to give it a read you will find the writers were extremely well informed and present the information in a unique and postive light, a way thats easily understood and processed. Awesome modern information!
