Banyen's Description: 

Featuring essays and interviews with Timothy Leary, Aldous Huxley, Ram Dass, Albert Hofmann, Alexander (Sasha) Shulgin, Daniel Pinchbeck, Tim Robbins, Arne Naess, and electronic musician Simon Posford, as well as groundbreaking research and personal accounts, this one-of-a-kind anthology is a collection of the most influential and provocative articles and essays published by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). These pieces explore some of the most surprising and beneficial effects of psychedelics, including MDMA, ibogaine, LSD, ayahuasca, 2C-B, and other psychedelics: treating addiction and PTSD, providing creative inspiration and formative coming-of-age experiences, enriching sexuality and spirituality, improving our relationship with nature, and creating innovative technologies for the future.

With its wide range of voices and multifaceted viewpoints, Manifesting Minds is an insightful, well-rounded exploration for educated readers interested in psychedelics, as well as professionals in the fields of progressive therapies, neuroscience, pharmacology, spirituality, and art.

Among the many articles are these:
