Banyen's Description: 

Best-selling author Graham Hancock and others explore the magic and mystery of consciousness in this edited anthology aimed at all those who are interested in the connection between consciousness, psychedelics and the development of humankind.

Graham Hancock has been writing and speaking about this to audiences worldwide, including a controversial Tedx talk on ayahuasca and DMT, which some call the god molecule. Hancock leads the charge in this collection of the latest thinking on consciousness with a particular focus on the use of psychedelics to open up the realm of the supernatural. Leading minds including Dennis McKenna, Rick Doblin, and Rick Strassman illuminate the topic like never before.

I suspect the real breakthroughs in our understanding of consciousness are going to come from an entirely different direction. That direction, controversially, has to do with psychedelics—which, as many of the contributors to The Divine Spark argue, offer spectacular potential for the investigation of the “hard problem” of consciousness. —Graham Hancock, from the introduction

Contributors include: Mike Alvernia, Russell Brand, David Jay Brown, Paul Devereux, Rick Doblin, Amanda Fielding, Nassim Haramein, Martina Hoffman, Don Lattin, Eduardo Luna, Dennis McKenna, Thad McKraken, Rak Razam, Gabriel Roberts, Thomas B. Roberts, Robert Schoch, Mark Seelig, Rick Strassman, and Robert Tindall.

In one of his own essays, "Giving Up the Green Bitch: Reflections on Cannabis, Ayahuasca, and the Mystery of Plant Teachers," Hancock provides a candid look at his years of daily all-day cannabis use (the writer's muse, he felt) and how with the help of Mother Ayahuasca, he came to see how his cannabis overuse was turning him in a dangerously paranoid direction, and so he has quit. And feels liberated, and renewed.
