Psychedelic Journey

A psychedelic journey is the altered state of consciousness experienced when one consumes a psychedelic substance such as psilocybin, ayahuasca, LSD, or DMT. Depending on the substance used, a variety of different experiences can occur, ranging from heightened senses, states of euphoria or peacefulness, vivid mental imagery, and even mystical or spiritual encounters. A person can also experience a "bad trip," which can include feelings of anxiety, paranoia, agitation, confusion, or even psychotic episodes. While some believe that difficult trips can be doorways to important growth opportunities, it is highly recommended that anyone seeking a psychedelic experience is aware of the risks and does so with a “trip sitter,” someone who can keep an eye on the person and ensure they remain safe while journeying.

The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test

Tom Wolfe's much-discussed kaleidoscopic non-fiction novel chronicles the tale of novelist Ken Kesey and his band of Merry Pranksters. In the 1960s, Kesey led a group of psychedelic sympathizers around the country in a painted bus, presiding over LSD-induced "acid tests" all along the way.

Understanding the Acid Trip Experience

The technical term for getting high on acid (LSD) is LSD intoxication, but it is also known as an "acid trip" or "psychedelic experience."

LSD was not a pharmacological agent generating exotic experiences by its interaction with the neurophysiological processes in the brain. This remarkable substance was clearly an unspecific catalyst of the deep dynamics of the human psyche.
