How To Change Your Mind

Recommended reading: How To Change Your Mind – The New Science of Psychedelics by Michael Pollan.

Michael Pollan explores the history of psychedelics and shares recent research.

It’s a really interesting read and covers perspectives on psychedelics from different angles like history, politics, society, psychology, neurology, etc. mixed with personal insights and experiences. My guess is you’ll most likely learn a few things about psychedelics you don’t know yet.

As far as I know, there is no German translation yet.

Another recommendation is Michael Pollan’s Netflix documentary ‘Cooked’, where he looks at food and cooking. Every episode nurtured the nerd in me (for everyone who knows me – yes, there’s also a part about fermentation).

  1. Psychedelics – for me that sounds like PInk Floyd, The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, like Liquid Light Shows, weed, tantric sex and Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. Like in the good old days 😉
    Nowadays cooking will have to do the job. Or baking.

    1. Well, could be, doesn’t have to… There was a huge amount of research done as well in the good old days, much of which is rediscovered and new research projects are happening, linked to mental health and palliative care for example, which I found really, really interesting.
      And you’re right, doesn’t have to be psychedelics. Other things will do too. Like cooking and baking. 🙂
