||The Entheogenic Evolution: Psychedelics, Consciousness and Awakening the Human Spirit
|| Kyandara Publishing/Martin W. Ball
|| BL 65 .D7 B35
|| Paper, perfect-bound in full-color illustrated wrappers. Entheogen (meaning "generating God within" ) was first coined as a term by Gordon Wasson in the late Seventies but as a reading of the psychedelic experience it has a much longer history. Presently, it appears, the entheogenic reading has become the dominant paradigm for the counterculture. The author makes a case for the value and significance of direct spiritual experience through entheogen use and how they can alter our collective understanding of the nature of reality and our personal relationship with the divine.
