About Us

Synergetic Press is an independent publisher committed to publishing the most original writers in the fields of environmental research, sustainability, ethnobotany, and consciousness. For the past thirty years, the Press has been part of a wider scientific and artistic community dedicated to exploring ways for humanity to exist in greater harmony with nature.

We offer the work of leaders and visionaries from diverse fields: environmentalists like Tony Juniper, Mark Nelson, and Christian Schwägerl; biospheric pioneers like Vladimir Vernadsky and John Allen; groundbreaking anthropologists like Richard Evans Schultes, Luis Eduardo Luna, and Steven F. White; spiritual seekers like Ram Dass, Ralph Metzner, Allan Badiner, Alex Grey, and Albert Hofmann; and inventive literary artists of the Beat Generation like William Burroughs, Johnny Dolphin, and Terry Wilson.

The world is at a crossroads today, and we believe it is our responsibility to bring forth works that point the way to achieving a healthier relationship with our planet and ourselves. We seek to publish writers who can inform and inspire the current and next generations with the most innovative, creative ideas and approaches to building a more sustainable and regenerative world—one that will flourish long into the future.
