The road to Eleusis : unveiling the secret of the mysteries by R. Gordon Wasson( Book )

19 editions published between 1977 and 2008 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The secretive Mysteries conducted at Eleusis in Greece for nearly two millennia have long puzzled scholars with strange accounts of initiates experiencing otherworldly journeys. In this groundbreaking work, three experts—a mycologist, a chemist, and a historian—argue persuasively that the sacred potion given to participants in the course of the ritual contained a psychoactive entheogen. The authors then expand the discussion to show that natural psychedelic agents have been used in spiritual rituals across history and cultures. Although controversial when first published in 1978, the book’s hypothesis has become more widely accepted in recent years, as knowledge of ethnobotany has deepened. The authors have played critical roles in the modern rediscovery of entheogens, and The Road to Eleusis presents an authoritative exposition of their views. The book’s themes of the universality of experiential religion, the suppression of that knowledge by exploitative forces, and the use of psychedelics to reconcile the human and natural worlds make it a fascinating and timely read. This 30th anniversary edition includes an appreciative preface by religious scholar Huston Smith and an updated exploration of the chemical evidence by Peter Webster.--
Plants of the gods : their sacred, healing, and hallucinogenic powers by Richard Evans Schultes( Book )

17 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The use of hallucinogenic plants has been a part of human experience for millennia, yet modern Western societies have only recently become aware of the significance that these plants have had in shaping the history of diverse cultures. Capable of bringing human beings in closer touch with the spirit worlds, hallucinogenic plants have long been venerated as aids to mental health and as the sacred connection to the mystical. The authors of this definitive book examine the cross-cultural ceremonial and ritual use of many hallucinogenic substances. Profusely illustrated, this book contains an extensively researched plant lexicon, providing common and botanical names, history, ethnography, preparation, chemical components, usage in healing, and effects for 91 hallucinogenic plants

5 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The acclaimed discoverer of LSD's personal experiences and thoughts on chemistry, the natural sciences, mind-altering drugs, the soul, and the search for happiness Shares a different side of the father of LSD, one known only to his friends and close colleagues Explains Hofmann's different methods of pharmaceutical research based on traditional plant medicine Includes the poetry of this mystical prophet of psychedelic science Best known as the first person to synthesize, ingest, and discover the psychedelic effects of LSD, Albert Hofmann was more than just a chemist. A pioneer in the field of visionary plant research, he was one of the first people to suggest the use of entheogens for psychological healing and spiritual growth. His insights into the consciousness-expanding effects of psychedelics as well as human nature, the psyche, and the nature of reality earned him a reputation as a mystical scientist and visionary philosopher. This book--Hofmann's last work before his death in 2008 at the age of 102--offers the acclaimed scientist's personal experiences and thoughts on chemistry, the natural sciences, mind-altering drugs, the soul, and the search for happiness and meaning in life. Hofmann explains different methods of pharmaceutical research based on traditional plant medicine and discusses psilocybin, the active compound in psychedelic mushrooms that he discovered. He examines the psychological role of psychoactives, their therapeutic potential, and their use in easing the life-to-death transition. Sharing a different side of the father of LSD, one known only to his friends and close colleagues, this book also includes the poetry of this mystical prophet of psychedelic science

8 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Am Anfang steht ein Topf Honig, der aus der Schweiz nicht ausgeführt werden darf, am Ende ein chinesischer Glückspilz, gefunden oberhalb der Rittimatte im Basler Land, der auch noch dem 101- jährigen ein langes Leben schenken soll: Ein halbes Jahrhundert lang schreiben sich der Schriftsteller Ernst Jünger (1895-1998) und der LSD-Entdecker Albert Hofmann (1906-2008), von 1947 bis zu Jüngers Tod. Sie telefonieren miteinander, besuchen sich und verreisen zusammen - nach Sri Lanka und Kreta, aber auch mit Hilfe verschiedener Drogenexperimente. Das erste Mal 1951: "Wir hatten die Schuhe ausgezogen; es war ein Ausflug, zu dem man weder Stab noch Stiefel, weder Rad noch Flügel braucht", erinnert sich Ernst Jünger in Annäherungen. Drogen und Rausch (1970). Der nun erstmals publizierte Briefwechsel zeigt die bürgerliche Nachkriegswelt, in der diese auch literarisch genutzten Trips stattfanden

The encyclopedia of psychoactive plants : ethnopharmacology and its applications by Christian Rätsch( )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most comprehensive guide to the botany, history, distribution, and cultivation of all known psychoactive plants Examines 414 psychoactive plants and related substances Explores how using psychoactive plants in a culturally sanctioned context can produce important insights into the nature of reality Contains 797 color photographs and 645 black-and-white illustrations In the traditions of every culture, plants have been highly valued for their nourishing, healing, and transformative properties. The most powerful plants--those known to transport the human mind into other dimensions of consciousness--have traditionally been regarded as sacred. In The Encyclopedia of Psychoactive Plants Christian RAtsch details the botany, history, distribution, cultivation, and preparation and dosage of more than 400 psychoactive plants. He discusses their ritual and medicinal usage, cultural artifacts made from these plants, and works of art that either represent or have been inspired by them. The author begins with 168 of the most well-known psychoactives--such as cannabis, datura, and papaver--then presents 133 lesser known substances as well as additional plants known as "legal highs," plants known only from mythological contexts and literature, and plant products that include substances such as ayahuasca, incense, and soma. The text is lavishly illustrated with 797 color photographs--many of which are from the author's extensive fieldwork around the world--showing the people, ceremonies, and art related to the ritual use of the world's sacred psychoactives
