Psychedelic Healing is a place to discuss intriguing questions about psychedelics as a tool for lasting change in adults. Since the curative effect of entheogens comes not from a chemical effect on the body, but by triggering a peak or spiritual experience, can psychedelic therapy:
* Repair malfunctions in natural development?
* Speed up the natural developmental process?
* Trigger transformative change into novel areas?
Together, we can unlock the healing powers of these unique tools, providing an integral medicine for postmodern society.
