The Entheogen Review CD - all issues (PDF) 1992-2008.
Quote:
The Entheogen Review was a quarterly publication that served as a clearinghouse for data about the use of visionary plants and drugs. All communications were kept in the strictest confidence--unless otherwise requested, published material was identified only by the author's initials and state of residence. The mailing list was not for sale, rent, or loan. Think of The Entheogen Review as a network newsletter; the voice of a community of subscribers seeking and sharing information on the cultivation, extraction, and ritual use of entheogens. Subjective results experienced by readers were published too. The Entheogen Review published the latest, most accurate, and novel data possible on these and related topics. Edited by David Aardvark and K. Trout.

LSD problem Child and wonder drug - DVD from the symposium in Basel shortly before Albert died. Sealed/NEW
Quote:
LSD: Problem Child and Wonder Drug captures the fascinating story of LSD as it is eloquently told by Dr. Albert Hofmann, the 100-year-old sage-scientist who brought LSD into the world. With interviews and presentations by Rick Doblin, Alex Grey, Ralph Metzner, Carl Ruck, Goa Gil, and others, this historic message from the father of LSD is a timeless relic and an immediate source of inspiration.

The story is told through an account of the 2006 International LSD Symposium in Basel, Switzerland. At the now-legendary conference, eighty speakers and two thousand participants gathered for three days in honor of Dr. Hofmann’s 100th birthday and to hear Dr. Hofmann speak about his life, his discovery, and his thoughts on the psychedelic experience. It was also an occasion for leading doctors, researchers, artists and thinkers in the psychedelic field to present their work.

By documenting this historic symposium, LSD: Problem Child and Wonder Drug reveals the scientific, medical, artistic, and spiritual issues at the core of the psychedelic debate. While experienced psychonauts will certainly be touched by the words and passion of Dr. Hofmann, the film is also an excellent introduction for friends, parents, and colleagues to the reasons why the psychedelic experience cannot be simply ignored.

Rick Strausman - DMT The Spirit Molecule. Signed & new
Quote:
Synopsis:
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 DEA-approved 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 that is also manufactured by the human brain, consistently produced out-of-body, near-death, and mystical experiences. Many volunteers reported convincing encounters with intelligent nonhuman presences: angels, aliens, spirits. Nearly all agreed that the sessions were among the most intense experiences of their lives.

Strassman's research connects dmt with the pineal gland, considered by Hindus to be the site of the sixth 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.

Introduced by Timothy Leary, this collection of essays, photographs and research seeks to establish the scientific legitimacy of psychedelic studies. Important, very informative, and an additional valuable contribuition to the psychedelic movement --Dr. Albert Hoffman, inventor of LSD-25. As Hakim Bey writes in the Foreword: The 'doors of perception' --that's the first step. The second step is opening the doors of perception. Then --going through. Next --learning that there are no doors of perception. Then --going back outside and alerting everyone else to the wonders beyond the doors. 255pp.

The first: Journal of Cognitive Liberties. Volume 1 Number 1 : winter 1999

The Center for Cognitive Liberties was founded by lawyer Richard Glen Boire. The board of directors includes notables such as :
John Perry Barlow , Rick Doblin, Alex Grey, Alexander Shulgin, Jonathan Ott, Myron Stolaroff and others.

This first publication contains articles on the ideal of cognitive liberty, court cases, laws and impending laws and a fascinating section on Entheogen arrest related news stories, among other things. An important little piece of history!

Charles Hayes - Tripping: An Anthology of True-Life Psychedelic Adventures: signed by Charles Hayes. Originated with MAPS so inscribed mentioning maps.

Quote:
The psychedelic experience has been both demonized and mythologized, but what is it really like to trip?

TRIPPING: An Anthology of True-Life Psychedelic Adventures, the first major compilation of personal testimonies about psychedelic experiences, contains narratives by 50 people of various nationalities and walks of life about their most unforgettable altered states -- from the heavenly to the horrific. In gripping, often suspenseful tales suffused with a high sense of adventure, TRIPPING liberates the psychedelic experience from the closet of social stigma as well as from the mists of Sixties counter-cultural idealism.

Relating the harrowing straits and exhilarating peaks of the psychedelic inner odyssey are many accomplished writers, including former Grateful Dead lyricist John Perry Barlow, war photographer Tim Page, Beat poet Anne Waldman, science fiction writer Robert Charles Wilson, thriller writer Steven Martin Cohen, Ecstasy expert Bruce Eisner, and phenomonologist Paul Devereux.

Most of the narratives, however, come from “ordinary” people from Sydney to Belfast to San Francisco, for whom their anonymity brings out an intensely personal, confessional dimension. The stories, edited mostly from taped interviews by journalist Charles Hayes, enable readers to either “trip” vicariously or compare notes on their own experiences.

Specially featured is a lengthy conversation with the late Terence McKenna, the man who many believe inherited Tim Leary’s mantle as the leading spokesman for psychedelics from the late Seventies until his death in April 2000. A veteran of myriad heroic doses, McKenna discusses some of his own trips for the first time, as well as a range of issues, including his own provocative brand of eschatology, politics, and anthropology, at the center of which is an abiding faith in the power of psychedelic drugs.

TRIPPING’s balanced, objective perspective portrays both positive and negative impacts of psychedelic experiences, depicting both the tolls and the rewards of such chemically-induced excursions from reality. Types of episodes run the gamut from encounters with godhead and alien or discarnate entities; out-of-body experiences, freak-outs, flashbacks, psychosis (momentary and otherwise), and acts or events of apparent magic or miracle. The trips described were catalyzed not just by classic psychedelics such as LSD, but by a wide array of psychotropics, from the sacred plants of indigenous peoples to the latest synthetic “smart drugs.”

Acid Dreams: The CIA, LSD, and the Sixties Rebellion Rare 1st edition hardcover. Read but in good shape
Quote:
You won't here these stories on Fox News or Salon. This book is a superb piece of cultural anthropology and an awesome read. Remember: Owsely, the Farm, the Haight & the Brotherhood of Eternal Love, CIA suicides and the Edgware Arsenal? You get all of the foregoing plus great investigative journalism and a contact high. Part one: the CIA & LSD (You won't hear these stories on Fox News) is worth the price alone. If you can't remember which American General demanded that the Congress flood the NY subway system with LSD gas, you can find the answer here. ...Shrink

Tim Leary, Billy Hitchcock, Milbrook, Alan Watts, pink owsley, The Brotherhood of Eternal Love, Clair Booth Luce! (It's all here.) A finely written work of contemporary history from the LSD user's point of view. If you have an interest in LSD or the CIA or the 60s there is no finer book to read. This book is not a comic book or like far out, man, treatment of LSD. It combines meticulous investigative journalism and cultural anthropolgy submitted and is a awesome read.

And it's all true! If you were there go back and come inside where it's warm for a while. If you weren't there, it's gonna blow your mind.

Anybody remember Ronald Hadley Stark?

Stanislav Grof - LSD Psychotherapy. Signed.
Quote:
The sensationalism surrounding the widespread use of LSD in the late 60s and the subsequent legislative overkill virtually ended psychotherapeutic LSD research. Much of what had been learned over thirty years of scientific medical study was so distorted or suppressed that no objective overview was available to the general reader - except for this book. LSD Psychotherapy is a complete account of a remarkable chapter in the ever-continuing inquiry into our transpersonal nature and origins. The controlled studies described in this book reveal exciting and challenging data about the nature of human consciousness, perception, and reality itself. Drawing on this work Dr. Stanislav Grof outlines a new cartography of the human mind, one which accounts for experiences such as shamanic trance, near-death experiences and altered states of consciousness. This vision is also the foundation for Dr. Grof's revolutionary new Holotropic Breathworkβ„’ techniques. This book is also a visual feast, with numerous color drawings and paintings created by research participants (see featured artist Sherana Harriette Frances' book Drawing It Out: Befriending the Unconscious). Many of these depict archetypal images from the collective human consciousness, which form a powerful addition to the text. LSD Psychotherapy is a valuable source of information for those who are involved with LSD in any way, as parents, teachers, researchers, legislators, or students of the human psyche. The approach to healing described in this book is inspired by the eternal desire of humankind for wholeness and an enduring grasp of reality.

"Opium Den" LSD Blotter art signed by everyones favorite hash smuggler: "Mr. Nice" Howard Marks. Signed to the late author Thomas Lyttle

From a series of LSD Blotter prints commissioned by the late author Thomas Lyttle in the Early 90''s. Arguably the first blotters intended solely as art. Prints were left untrimmed and he had numerous psychedelic visionaries sign them. While most of the signed prints were numbered- few (if any) actually had the whole series signed. While Timothy Leary signed a great number, most others signed relatively few of these. Many were donated to MAPS many years ago, and these have become very hard to come by.

Jonathan Ott - Pharmacophilla- or the Natural Paradise -extremely limited and rare edition hardcover/slipcase.

Quote:
Chapter Overview By: R. Lowe
1. Phytomphalos

This is a short ode to entheogens as the Tree of Life, Elixir of Life etc. etc.

2. Le Paradis Naturels

Starts off with an overview of 19th century literary works by pioneers of the field such as De Quincy and Baudelaire leading into Ott's assertion that Baulelaire's calling of hashish and opium as an artificial paradise is not only incorrect but the exact opposite from the truth because they are in fact the most natural routes to paradise available. Because of the brain receptors that specifically fit the molecules that exist in the plants and our own neurochemicals that are so similar to them. In conclusion of the chapter Ott quotes Nietzsche and Gottfried Benn saying that Inebriation is Nature's game with man and that potent brains are not strengthened by milk, but by alkaloids.

3. Celestial Pharmacuetics

This chapter begins with an overview of the early entheogenic tombs from the 19th century. The Chemistry of Common Life by James F. Johnson, Plant Intoxicants by Ernst Von Bibra and The Seven Sister of Sleep by Mordecai Cubitt Cooke and while Johnson's book dealt with all types of plants Bibra and Cooke dealt exclusively with psychotropic substances. Then there is a summary of the conclusions of their work as pertaining to the moral implications of drug use and Ott moves on to 1887 with Louis Lewin obtaining a peyote cactus specimen from the U.S. which lead to the first purified entheogenic substance (Mescaline) in 1896 by Arthur Heffter and the pioneering bioassays he did with mescaline and peyote. Then it's on to 1924 and Lewin's Phantastica which was the first comprehensive review of both psychopharmacology and ethnopharmacognosy; and a discussion of the progression of the study of entheogenic substances. With a note of the aforementioned authors' knowledge that indigenous peoples project divinity onto certain plants; and their disregard of this notion. Then onto Nov 16, 1938 Hoffmann synthesizes LSD for the first time and the rest is history followed by a discussion of R. Gordon Wasson and his rediscovery of the mushroom cult in Mexico and Wasson's evolved viewpoint of entheogenic experiences being genuine in nature.

4. Idiosyncracsy and Pharmacophilia

This chapter begins with an explanation of the concepts of physiology and medicine from the zenith of the Roman Empire until the end of the Dark Ages which included categorizing people according to the Hippocratic or Cardinal Humors. In the second part of this chapter Ott examines human biochemical individuality as it is relative to the pharmacology of inebriants; shedding light on peoples' preferences for certain drugs and the fallacy of the notion of good and bad drugs.

5. Psychopharmacological Engineering

In this chapter Ott comments on the absurdity of the fight drugs with drugs notion such as using drugs to replace other drugs (Methadone for Heroin), drugs that block the effects of other drugs etc etc....Note that the goal is not to cure the drug taking behavior but to have people consume sanctioned drugs. Putting an End to prohibition would only allow people to freely medicate themselves not create an epidemic as has been supposed. Ott's contention is that we need safer and longer lasting euphoriants. While the enhancing of the known stock of the pharmacopeias to may them more potent and longer lasting may seem like a radical concept it is already practised the area of steroids.

6. Psychonautics and Pharmacohedonology

Many people are avid in their rejection of all pleasures pharmacological while ascertaining that it is appropriate to utilize drugs to correct medical disorders. But what of using drugs to enhance performance, functioning and appearance such as Viagra and Rogaine. Let us not forget that in this day and age with our obsessions with diet & exercise and nutritional supplementation that we pharmaceutical and other technologies are harnessed to our will. What is so strange about the notion of wanting safer euphoriants. The chapter then moves into a discussion of the stigma associated with recreational drug use over prescription drug use and then into the possibilities of drug administration via tobacco with a conclusion that our drug problem is in actuality a prohibition problem.

NOTES

As usual with Ott's books the notes section is extensive in fact it is the longest part of the book but as always it illuminates the text very well

Jonathan Ott - The Age of Entheogens & the Angels Paradise. Extremely limited and rare edition hardcover/slipcase.

Quote:
A fantastic read, one of Ott's most accessible books. "A radical re-examination of the history of our western civilization, exploring the brutal suppression of ecstatic, experiential, natural religions from The Age of Entheogens, by the 1600-year-old Pharmacratic Inquisition, leading up to the contemporary Entheogenic Reformation." Followed by a dictionary-style lexicon of words used pertaining to shamanism and entheobotany; made in response to R. Gordon Wasson's call for "a vocabulary to describe all the modalities of a Divine Inebriant."Could there ever be a more damning indictment of the spiritual bankruptcy of our vaunted western civilization. than the fact that it has transubstantiated the sacred fruit of the Tree of Life, the veritable well-spring of all culture. into scurvy contraband. made the truth a secret. the Logos a dirty word.?"

K. Trout - Some simple tryptamines. Definitely well read but in good condition. Inscribed to the Late psychedelic writer Thomas Lyttle by Trout. Should need no introduction. Many black and white photos and a stunning amount of data. As it says on the cover: "More then you need to know" 2002 edition.
Quote:
...An invaluable reference tool for professional researchers and other workers needing far more information than the general public. This book is presently the single most comprehensive and detailed review & reference compendium that exists concerning the naturally occurring tryptamine alkaloids.

Ecstasy Rising DVD Compilation

This special DVD of “Ecstasy Rising” is perhaps the best documentary ever made about MDMA. This Peter Jennings special originally aired in 2004 on a special edition of ABC’s “Primetime Thursday” in which Jennings tells the previously untold story of Ecstasy. The compilation includes special interviews with MAPS Founder and Executive Director Rick Doblin as well as with Pharmacologist and Chemist Alexander “Sasha” Shulgin -- the godfather of Ecstasy.






Ibogaine: Rite of Passage Documentary DVD

“Ibogaine: Rite of Passage” is a documentary about the use of the controversial substance ibogaine for the treatment of opiate addiction. Ibogaine is a psychoactive substance derived from the African plant iboga. It is used during ritual initiations of the Bwiti people in Gabon. In the 1960s, American researcher and heroin addict Howard Lotsof discovered the anti-addictive properties of ibogaine. Not long after his discovery, the use of ibogaine became illegal in the United States and remains illegal there today.*
“Ibogaine: Rite of Passage” follows an American heroin addict through an ibogaine session at a clinic in Tijuana, Mexico. Through a series of critical interviews with former addicts, ibogaine facilitators, and other experts, the documentary asks if the controversial status of ibogaine is due to economics or to its hallucinogenic effects? The DVD includes the official trailer, information about ibogaine treatment centers and other resources related to ibogaine and opiate addiction, and a filmography of the director. Subtitled in English, French, German, Spanish, and Dutch. You may also visit Ibogaine: Rite of Passage on the Lunart Productions website for more information about the film.
The film was completed thanks to the generosity of Custom House Publishers, For A Better World, Inc., and the Rotary of Antwerp,




Vine Of The Soul DVD - Encounters with Ayahuasca
Synopsis:
Can a sacred plant from the Amazon heal our minds and spirits? For centuries, indigenous people of South America have used ayahuasca, a psychoactive plant medicine, to cure all manner of psycho-spiritual ills.
Today, thousands of Westerners, seeking healing and spiritual awakening, attend ayahuasca ceremonies around the world to drink the vision-inducing tea and experience dramatic transformations in their lives.
"Vine of the Soul” is a documentary that explores this brave new world, offering insights into the nature of faith, mystical experience and self-healing through a heightened state of consciousness.
Filmmaker Richard Meech follows key protagonists as they journey to Peru – and back home – capturing in veritι style both the life-altering epiphanies and nights of terror encountered after drinking the sacred brew.
Is ayahuasca a doorway to direct knowledge of the divine or a path that leads to psychological trauma? Can it cure modern addictions to drugs and alcohol or is ayahuasca itself a possible substance of abuse? Some people call it a medicine, others a sacrament; the Amazonian shamans say it is simply a ‘plant teacher’ that tells you what you need to know.
Throughout the film, in-depth interviews with Peruvian and Canadian shamans, ethnobotanist Dennis McKenna, addiction expert Dr. Gabor Matι and scholar Kenneth Tupper speak to the increasing use of ayahuasca outside the Amazon and the potential benefits for Western medicine, personal spiritual growth and a new understanding of nature.
Featuring Guillermo Arιvalo, Metsa Niwue and Ronin Niwe. Shot on location at Espνritu de Anaconda near Iquitos, Peru and at other locations in North America.





National Geographic "Inside LSD"
LSDs inventor Albert Hofmann called it "medicine for the soul." The Beatles wrote songs about it. Secret military mind control experiments exploited its hallucinogenic powers. Outlawed in 1966, LSD became a street drug and developed a reputation as the dangerous toy of the counterculture, capable of inspiring either moments of genius, or a descent into madness. Now science is taking a fresh look at LSD, including the first human trials in over 35 years. Using enhanced brain imaging, non-hallucinogenic versions of the drug and information from an underground network of test subjects who suffer from an agonizing condition for which there is no cure, researchers are finding that this "trippy" drug could become the pharmaceutical of the future. Can it enhance our brain power, expand our creativity and cure disease? To find out, Explorer puts LSD under the microscope.

Festival Express (DVD, 2004)
In the summer of 1970, a rock festival travelled across Canada by luxury train, stopping in Toronto, Calgary, and Winnipeg. Lured by the promise of a mobile party, Janis Joplin, the Grateful Dead, The Band, Buddy Guy, The Flying Burrito Brothers, and Ian & Sylvia signed on to the tour for a fraction of their usual fees. The performances and the stars' antics on the train were both filmed, only to be locked away for 25 years. The colorful and thrilling results, seen here for the first time, capture these artists at their loosest and most natural. Fans of Joplin and the Dead will find reason to rejoice in the playful footage of these icons enjoying each other's company on the train, as well as their blistering stage performances. The events are also put into context through new interviews with the surviving musicians, including Buddy Guy, the Grateful Dead's Bob Weir, and Mickey Hart, who speak frankly and humorously about the tour. Once buried in reputation by the era's other historic concert events such as Woodstock, or the Rolling Stones at Altamont--FESTIVAL EXPRESS is proof that a monumental live event in '60s rock has been long overlooked.



Timothy Leary's Last Trip (DVD, 1998)
The long, strange trip of Dr. Timothy Leary, alternately lionized and despised as the High Priest of 1960s LSD subculture, has inspired generations in search of self-discovery and expanded consciousness. This authorized documentary of Leary's life pays homage to Leary and other '60s counterculture personalities such as Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters--who inspired Tom Wolfe's THE ELECTRIC KOOL-AID ACID TEST--and Acid Test house band The Grateful Dead. Like other films that deal with the work of iconoclastic American heroes, such as WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS: COMMISSIONER OF SEWERS and GROWING UP IN AMERICA--spotlighting '60s political radicals like Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Rubin--this film offers testament to the power of revolutionary thought. LAST TRIP recounts Leary's early life, from his schooling at West Point and his tenure as a Harvard professor, to the university and government experiments that prompted his research into LSD and other hallucinogens. Centering on Leary's relationships with key figures in the heyday of the drug era, archival footage and interviews chronicle the famous bus trip that first brought Leary and Kesey together. Insightful interviews with Leary toward the end of his life (he died of cancer in 1996), show that he dealt with terminal illness in a manner as colorful as the era with which he will be forever linked.

The Pharmacology of LSD: A Critical Review (Paperback)*
Annelie Hintzen, Torsten Passie
[I]Published by the Beckley Foundation


LSD has a controversial and extraordinary reputation, due to the special effects it can induce on human consciousness. Its experimental use lead to some groundbreaking discoveries about the brain and the deeper layers of the human psyche. After its application in neuroscience, and as a tool within psychotherapy, it was increasingly used by laymen for producing euphoria and religious experiences. Today, there is a resurgence of interest in LSD, including its possible uses in psychotherapy and for the treatment of some headache disorders. This book represents the first ever comprehensive review of the psychological and pharmacological effects of LSD. It draws on data from more than 3000 experimental and clinical studies. The Pharmacology of LSD provides a unique and valuable resource for anyone interested in better understanding this controversial hallucinogenic drug - including brain scientists, psychopharmacologists, addiction researchers, and psychiatrists.

The picture on the covers is from Albert Hofmann - LSD crystals under polarized light.







Life Magazine from May 13, 1957 featuring R Gordon Wasson:
Secret of "Devine Mushrooms".* Vision-giving mushrooms are discovered in a remote Mexican Village by a U. S. Banker who describes the strange ritual and effects of eating them.
This is the article that turned north america on to psychedelics / psychedelic mushrooms. An amazing (and very hard to come by) piece of history.

John Lilly signed Fractal Coast LSD Blotter Art
From a series of LSD Blotter prints commissioned by the late author Thomas Lyttle in the Early 90''s. Arguably the first blotters intended solely as art. Prints were left untrimmed and he had numerous psychedelic visionaries sign them. While most of the signed prints were numbered- few (if any) actually had the whole series signed. While Timothy Leary signed a great number, most others signed relatively few of these. Many were donated to MAPS many years ago, and these have become very hard to come by.

Beavis and Butthead Vintage LSD blotter signed by Sasha Shulgin.

This LSD blotter is from the "dirty dozen" created by the best known lsd blotter artist- Mark McCloud. He was creator of many famous blotters that circulated in the ealrly 90's- eventually put on trial by the feds and won, establishing LSD blotter as a legitimate folk artform.

1988 Batman Issue of Detective Comics:
- In 1988, DC Comics released a Batman issue of the Detective Comics series where the primary villain is a young man who is given ecstasy and then goes on a killing rampage. The secondary villain is the ecstasy dealer / pusher who gives the young man the drug. This comic represents some of the absurdist "Just Say No" propaganda common in the late 1980's and is an amusing piece of War on Drugs memorabilia. This comic also represents an interesting piece of history because it came somewhat after the first crest of media frenzy about MDMA. By 1988, the "designer drug" hysteria had been mostly drowned out by the "Crack Epidemic" scare. When Ecstasy fear mongering was reinvented in 1998-1999, the previous wave of anti-ecstasy media was all but forgotten.
The story in Batman 594, written by Alan Grant and John Wagner, is very thin and the artistry of the book, drawn by Norm Breyfogle and colored by Adrienne Roy, is of middle quality. Included here are several pages from the comic to give a flavor for the depth with which the issue is addressed and the standard drug-scare cliche plot. The story itself isn't specific to ecstasy and any "Evil Drug" could easily be inserted in place of the term "Ecstasy" and the story would make just as much sense (if not more). The storyline is all the more absurd since Ecstasy is known to be one of the psychedelic-class drugs least likely to precipitate severe traumatic Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or lasting psychosis.

The Spirit Molecule DVD (new/sealed) &DMT The Spirit Molecule - Ltd Ed. Poster




THE SPIRIT MOLECULE weaves an account of Dr. Rick Strassman's groundbreaking DMT research through a multifaceted approach to this intriguing hallucinogen found in the human brain and hundreds of plants, including the sacred Amazonian brew, ayahuasca. Utilizing interviews with a variety of experts to explain their thoughts and experiences with DMT, and ayahuasca, within their respective fields, and discussions with Strassman’s research volunteers, brings to life the awesome effects of this compound, and introduces us to far-reaching theories regarding its role in human consciousness.

Several themes explored include possible roles for endogenous DMT, its theoretical role in near-death and birth experiences, alien-abduction experiences, and spiritual states, both within Eastern concepts of enlightenment and Western ideas regarding prophecy, and the uncanny similarities in Biblical prophetic texts describing DMT-like experiences. Our expert contributors offer a comprehensive collection of information, opinions, and speculation about indigenous use of DMT, the history and future of psychedelics within the research community, and within the larger social matrix, and current DMT research. All this, to help us understand the nature of the DMT experience, and its role in human culture and evolution.

The subtle stimulating combination of science, spirituality, anthropology, sociology, and philosophy within the film’s approach sheds light on an array of ideas that could considerably alter the way humans understand the universe and their relationship to it.

These items have been valued... so an idea may be to put your item to auction or straight sale, thus recouping your money and still helping DF to grow.

This first publication contains articles on the ideal of cognitive liberty, court cases, laws and impending laws and a fascinating section on Entheogen arrest related news stories, among other things. An important little piece of history!

I have never seen a copy of this available anywhere- this was from the personal library of the late writer Thomas Lyttle.

Do you have to donate the full amount in one go or can you accumulate until you've donated the amount to receive a particular item? If the former, I'd be glad to take LSD symposium DVD off your hands. If not, I'd prefer to wait until I've donated enough for the rarer gems.

With my donation of 215 euro I would like Opium Den signed by Thomas Lyttle. And I guess I would get that cool magazine as well.

Man, I get to help out the Forum (which they need), and get some rare cool shit!!! More people should be jumping on this!

^^ In the US one can go to their bank aand exchange funds (usually takes 2-3 days), and most airports have currency exchanges. Also many large cities have businesses- look in the yellow pages under "Currency Exchange".
And of course Alertpay & paypal will ecxhange funds as part of a transaction.

Re: Donation gifts: signed rare books, blotter art & collectors items

I will be donating tomorrow (just waiting until October 1st so the Donation Drive will be in effect), is it possible to reserve "The Birth of a Psychedelic Culture" and pay for it over time, as Coconut mentioned?

Re: Donation gifts: signed rare books, blotter art & collectors items

Am I right in saying DMT - The Spirit Molecule is available still?

If so I'll try to get money together for a donation before the October Drive is over.

Re: Donation gifts: signed rare books, blotter art & collectors items

SWIM has raised a support ticked to donate 200E for Opium Den LSD Blotter signed by R.A.W.- the late author Robert Anton Wilson

Awaiting a response... response received, and donation made .

SWim adds, what a great collection of stuff above, choosing was hard, but budget set a limit to what SWIM could afford, but wow, great collection, so wish SWIM could afford more blotter art, lol.

another update, recieved me items today, chuffed to bits cheers!!

a big thanks for the bullet proof packaging and freebee poster!!, strait through customs, not opened, not a mark on it, perfect!!

Exchange rates fluctuate on the minute, so that post is likely already outdated
