DMT and the soul of prophecy : a new science of spiritual revelation in the hebrew bible by Rick Strassman( )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After completing his groundbreaking research chronicled in DMT: The Spirit Molecule, Rick Strassman, MD, was left with one fundamental question: What does it mean that DMT, a simple chemical naturally found in all of our bodies, instantaneously opens us to an interactive spirit world that feels more real than our own world'When his decades of clinical psychiatric research and Buddhist practice were unable to provide answers to this question, Strassman began searching for a more resonant spiritual model. He found that the visions of the Hebrew prophets were strikingly similar to those of the volunteers in his DMT studies. Carefully examining the concept of prophecy in the Hebrew Bible, he characterizes a "prophetic state of consciousness" and explains how it may share biological and metaphysical mechanisms with the DMT effect. Examining medieval commentaries on the Hebrew Bible, Strassman reveals how Jewish metaphysics provides a top-down model for both the prophetic and DMT states, a model he calls "theoneurology." Theoneurology addresses issues critical to the full flowering of the psychedelic drug experience. Perhaps even more important, it points the way to a renewal of classical prophetic consciousness, the soul of Hebrew Bible prophecy, and unexpected directions for the evolution of contemporary spiritual practice

DMT - das Molekül des Bewusstseins zur Biologie von Nahtod-Erfahrungen und mystischen Erlebnissen by Rick Strassman( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A clinical psychiatrist explores the effects of DMT, one of the most powerful psychedelics known. A behind-the-scenes look at the cutting edge of psychedelic research. Provides a unique scientific explanation for the phenomenon of alien abduction experiences. From 1990 to 1995 Dr. Rick Strassman conducted U.S. Government-approved and funded clinical research at the University of New Mexico in which he injected sixty volunteers with DMT, one of the most powerful psychedelics known. His detailed account of those sessions is an extraordinarily riveting inquiry into the nature of the human mind and the therapeutic potential of psychedelics. DMT, a plant-derived chemical found in the psychedelic Amazon brew, ayahuasca, is also manufactured by the human brain. In Strassman's volunteers, it consistently produced near-death and mystical experiences. Many reported convincing encounters with intelligent nonhuman presences, aliens, angels, and spirits. Nearly all felt that the sessions were among the most profound experiences of their lives. Strassman's research connects DMT with the pineal gland, considered by Hindus to be the site of the seventh chakra and by Rene Descartes to be the seat of the soul. DMT: The Spirit Molecule makes the bold case that DMT, naturally released by the pineal gland, facilitates the soul's movement in and out of the body and is an integral part of the birth and death experiences, as well as the highest states of meditation and even sexual transcendence. Strassman also believes that "alien abduction experiences" are brought on by accidental releases of DMT. If used wisely, DMT could trigger a period of remarkable progress in the scientific exploration of the most mystical regions of the human mind and soul

LSD, Spirituality, and the Creative Process : Based on the Groundbreaking Research of Oscar Janiger, M.D. by Rick Strassman( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

PSYCHOLOGY / DRUGS "There is no doubt about LSD's enormous impact on creativity. Unfortunately most artists cannot talk openly about LSD use for their artistic creativity and personal spiritual growth because of the overshadowing 'War on Drugs.' This pioneering book shows the value of the psychedelic experience for creativity."--(Christian Ratsch, Ph.D., author of "Marijuana Medicine" and coauthor of "Plants of the Gods") "With "LSD, Spirituality, and the Creative Process" Marlene Dobkin de Rios provides a compelling account of the unique research program conducted by Oscar Janiger studying the effects of psychedelics on creativity. This important contribution should stimulate further investigations into this fascinating yet neglected field."--(Charles S. Grob, M.D., professor of psychiatry, UCLA School of Medicine, and author of "Hallucinogens: A Reader") This book presents for the first time the results of one of the longest clinical studies of LSD ever undertaken and explores their implications regarding LSD's influence on creativity, imagination, and spirituality. In 1954 a Los Angeles psychiatrist began experimenting with a then new chemical discovery known as LSD-25. Over an eight-year period Dr. Oscar Janiger gave LSD-25 to more than 950 men and women, ranging in age from 18 to 81 and coming from all walks of life. In this book, the authors examine the intriguing data collected during those trials, as well as follow-up studies done forty years later. Author Marlene Dobkin de Rios, a medical anthropologist who has studied the use of hallucinogens in tribal and third world societies, considers the spiritual implications of these findings, comparing them with the experiences of indigenous groups that employ psychoactive substances in their religious ceremonies. The book also examines the nature of the creative process as influenced by psychedelics and includes artwork and poetry from the original experiment sessions, allowing the reader to personally witness LSD's impact on creativity. The groundbreaking studies recounted in "LSD, Spirituality, and the Creative Process" depict an important moment in the history of consciousness and reveal the innate creativity of humanity. OSCAR JANIGER, M.D., (1918-2001) was one of the first American researchers to study the psychedelic drugs LSD and DMT and was the author of "A Different Kind of Healing". MARLENE DOBKIN DE RIOS, PH.D., is a medical anthropologist who has conducted fieldwork in the Amazon on the plant hallucinogen ayahuasca. She has written several books, including "Visionary Vine" and "Hallucinogens: Cross Cultural Perspective". She lives in southern California
DMT: La molécula del espíritu : Las revolucionarias investigaciones de un médico sobre la biología de las experiencias místicas y cercanas a la muerte by Rick Strassman( )

1 edition published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Las avanzadas investigaciones de Rick Strassman plantean preguntas fascinantes acerca del fundamento neuroquímica o de la experiencia y de la factibilidad de realizar investigaciones humanas en un centro médico universitario con estupefacientes psicoactivos. ¡Una lectura verdaderamente audaz!" -Andrew Weil, autor de Spontaneous Healing (La curación espontánea)"Fascinante e incitante. Una extraordinaria exploración de los límites de la ciencia y de la propia conciencia". -Rupert Sheldrake, autor de The Presence of the Past (La presencia del pasado)"Un viaje deslumbrante por la experimentación con drogas psicodélicas y un fascinante vistazo a un nuevo modelo de cómo funciona el cerebro. Las investigaciones de Strassman dan a entender que el espíritu y su interacción con el cuerpo humano tienen una base fisiológica; sus resultados sugieren que los procesos químicos del cerebro nos proporcionan acceso a otros reinos de la existencia justamente cuando más lo necesitamos. Su relato personal nos revela los riesgos y las posibilidades de entrar en este nuevo mundo singular" .-Bruce Greyson, editor, Journal of Near-Death Studies (Revista de estudios sobre experiencias cercanas a la muerte)De 1990 a 1995, el Dr. Rick Strassman realizó en la Universidad de Nuevo México estudios clínicos aprobados y financiados por el gobierno de los Estados Unidos, en los que inyectó a 60 voluntarios con dimetiltriptamina (DMT), uno de los psicodélicos más potentes que se conocen. Su recuento pormenorizado de esas sesiones constituye una interesantísima indagación sobre la naturaleza de la mente humana y el potencial terapéutico de los psicodélicos. La DMT, una sustancia química derivada de las plantas que se encuentra en la ayahuasca, una infusión psicodélica del Amazonas, también es producida por el cerebro humano. Esta sustancia, liberada naturalmente por la glándula pineal, facilita al alma su entrada y salida del cuerpo y es una parte integrante de las experiencias del nacimiento y la muerte, así como de los estados superiores de meditación e incluso de la trascendencia sexual. Si se utiliza sabiamente, la DMT podría dar paso a un período de extraordinario progreso en la exploración científica de las regiones más místicas de la mente y el alma humanas
Shamans of the Amazon( Visual )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A personal account of filmmaker Dean Jefferys' journey to the Amazon to learn about the ancient hallucinogenic ayahuasca ritual. The film examines the effects the outside world is having on the Amazonian shamans and explores how they and the ayahuasca rituals are adapting to these changes, including the legalities of using ayahuasca for the Amazon shaman, the curious westerner and people who want to get the use of ayahuasca legalised for their spiritual pursuits. Jefferys also visits new age shamans who extract dimethyltryptamine (DMT), the active ingredient of ayahuasca, from oher plants. The film utilises the latest in computer graphics technology to simulate the feelings and visions one has during the ayahuasca ritual
