Beyond the Narrow Life: A Guide For Psychedelic Integration and Existential Exploration seeks to thread a needle by addressing the shared elements of intersecting complexities and possibilities surrounding questions regarding legal access to care, ongoing criminalization, and medical restrictions to care which limit the therapies available. The book introduces the reader to significant themes elicited by psychospiritual and therapeutic use of psychedelics––which includes the process of psychedelic integration. These themes integrate several frameworks, from third-wave cognitive-behavioral therapy to Jungian depth psychology, existentialism to scientific understandings of the cosmos, and mindfulness and compassion-focused traditions to popular and secular culture. Such an approach provides value to people regardless of their history using psychedelics as it connects to the greater mysteries and concerns of the human experience.
