Banyen's Description: 

How--and why--do psychedelics exist? Did psilocybin catalyze our early human ancestors social evolution? And how can an integral understanding of psychedelics quite literally change the world? In an ambitious and comprehensive look at psilocybin--and how humanity co-evolved alongside mushrooms--Jahan Khamsehzadeh explores our historical and ancestral relationship to psychedelics, presents new and exciting research, and explores what psilocybin can mean for us humans going forward.

Separated into three sections--Present, Past, and Future--Psilocybin Connection advances our understanding of psychedelics in unexpected and original ways. Khamsehzadeh shares compelling research that suggests that naturally-occurring psychedelics may have played an essential role in our social, cultural, and linguistic evolution. Supported by archaeological evidence, neuroscience, and academic studies, he explores how mushrooms gave rise to art and expression, impacted spiritual experiences, and even catalyzed human brain development.

Blending the selected experiences of nine people's transformative experiences, his own psychedelic awakening, and the most comprehensive synthesis of psilocybin research to date, Khamsehzadeh's Psilocybin Connection moves our understanding of the psychedelic mushroom forward toward a fresh, hopeful, and exciting future.

"This book’s blend of scholarship, erudition, and imagination makes a compelling argument that human evolution, even the enlargement of our brains, has been due in part to psilocybin mushrooms and their effects on perception, cognition, and imagination... His perspective is persuasive, optimistic, and a pleasure to read." —James Fadiman, microdose researcher and author of The Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide

"This book is the single most comprehensive on the subject of psilocybin mushrooms that I’ve come across in twenty-plus years of exploring the subject. Regardless of your level of knowledge or experience, [this] book is accessible, inviting, inspiring, and incredibly informative. This will be my go-to recommendation when anyone asks me any question about the history, use, science, or potential of psilocybin mushrooms." —Michael Roesslein, founder of Inaura
