Tom Shroder & Nicholas Blackston talk about Tom's recent publication “Acid Test: LSD, Ecstasy and the Power to Heal” at Horizons 2014.


Can once-feared drugs heal our wounded warriors and liberate our souls? The astounding saga behind the renaissance in psychedelic healing.

Horizons: Perspectives on Psychedelics is an annual forum that examines the role of psychedelics in science, healing, culture and spirituality.

Tom Shroder, Author and former Editor of The Washington Post Magazine. Tom Shroder is an award-winning journalist, editor, and author. His most recent book, Acid Test: LSD, Ecstasy, and the Power to Heal, was published in September. His earlier book, Old Souls, is a classic study of the intersection between mysticism and science.

Nicholas Blackston, Former Marine, participant in the MAPS clinical trial of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD. Nicholas Blackston joined the Marines out of high school, saw combat in the Iraqi cities of Faluja and Ramadi, suffered severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder until participation in experimental trials using MDMA-assisted therapy allowed him to face the roots of his disorder and heal himself.

I’ve recently personally started reading Acid Test myself and I can highly recommend reading it to anyone remotely interested in the research and work going on to legalize mind altering substances. You can read a synopsis and find a link to buy the book by clicking through the source below.
