How to Change Your Mind

by Michael Pollan

This book was published in May of 2018. The author, Michael Pollan, began researching how LSD and psilocybin were being used to treat depression, addiction, and anxiety. Michael delves into the current psychedelic research alongside the newest scientific discoveries of the brain. His research led him to explore the experiences of these altered states of consciousness first hand.

Michael explores the history of psychedelic research from the 1960’s when public opinion changed the perceptions of these drugs. Decades later and science is picking up where it left off as the public’s view is changing once again. This book is about the exploration of consciousness paired with the most up to date scientific research.
