BLURBS #Rick Strassman's pioneering research raises fascinating questions about the neurochemical basis of experience and the feasibility of conducting human research with mind-altering drugs in a university medical center. Truly adventurous reading!
-- Andrew Weil, author of Spontaneous Healing
"Fascinating and provocative. A remarkable exploration of the boundaries of science and consciousness itself."
-- Rupert Sheldrake, author of The Presence of the Past
"A dazzling journey through psychedelic drug experimentation and a tantalizing peek into a new model of how the brain and mind work. Strassman's research points toward a physiological basis for spirit and its interaction with the human body; his data suggests that our brain chemistry allows us access to other realms of existence just when we need it most, and his story recounts both the dangers and promises of entering this brave new world."
-- Bruce Greyson, Editor, Journal of Near-Death Studies
