I love what he did for the food revolution, but he’s also just an incredible investigative thinker, It’s an interesting discussion on how we view mental health and hallucinogenic drugs and the kind of ancient connection between those two things.      source

One of my favorite books of the last five years.      source
There's a good book Michael Pollan wrote recently called How to Change your Mind, and I think it is a brilliant book everybody should read. The book discusses psychedelics. Psychedelics are a bit of a cheat code in self-observation. I don't recommend drugs for anybody, you can do it all through pure meditation. If you want to accelerate ahead, you know, psychedelics are good for that.      source
A fun exploration of psychedelic drugs, especially for someone who has never tried them.      source
I’m also reading How to Change Your Mind by Michael Pollan about the history and escape from freedom - David Heinemeier Hanssonlessons of psychedelics. I never did drugs in my youth (besides a single encounter with marijuana), and to be honest, I kinda regret that! I think there’s something deeply fascinating about the altered states of consciousness that drugs give us access to. And none more so than psychedelics. But right now, I’m not really in a great place to experiment, as a father of small children, business owner, and a litany of other responsibilities. So I live vicariously through the accounts of Pollan’s personal journey and that of others in the books.      source
Changed my mind, or at least some of the ideas held in my mind.      source

Two recent ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ books from the last couple of weeks: 'How to Change Your Mind' by Michael Pollan (audiobook with him narrating was great) and 'The Courage to Be Disliked' by Ichiro Kishimi and Fumitake Koga (also listened vs read; recommended).      source
Has done a better job than any I’ve read so far on this subject at rationally, calmly, and scientifically exploring just how impactful psychedelics can be for the individual and our culture.      source

Just finished reading the wonderful #HowToChangeYourMind by @michaelpollan. Rarely before has a book made me think so much about what it means to be human. A must-read even if you've never tried psychedelics before. #neuroscience #goodreads      source
