This new edition, just released, features new essays on ayahuasca’s unique influence on Zen Buddhism, a recent interview with Rick Doblin, founder of MAPS, Ralph Metzner’s New Look at the “Psychedelic Tibetan Book of the Dead,” and a public dialogue on mixing dharma and psychedelics with James Fadiman and Zen monk, Kokyo Henkel. Bookworks is a local, independent bookstore that is known for its author events, and is located at 4022 Rio Grande Blvd NW, in Albuquerque’s North Valley, north of Griegos, in the Shops on Rio Grande next to Flying Star.
“I love this book! I was fond of the earlier edition but this one, riddled with beauty, flecked with wisdom and containing an amazing number of relevant deeply personal stories is likely to remain recommended reading for the next few generations.”
James Fadiman, Author of The Psychedelic Explorers Guide
