The History and Science of Mystical Experience
COMING TO SAN DIEGO THEATER 2022!
The documentary chronicles the use of psychedelic substances in controlled research studies that began in the 1960s. The film tells the story of medical professionals who have re-introduced these compounds into a legal and growing field of study. It is a first-person account from a study on end-of-life anxiety exploring the profound, life-altering insights psychedelics induce in participants and what these insights might mean for society at large. There is a current expanding push to explore the efficacy of using psychedelics for several mental health disorders.
