Cómo cambiar tu mente

Lo que la nueva ciencia de la psicodelia nos enseña sobre la conciencia, la muer

Michael Pollan

Could psychedelic drugs change our worldview? One of America's most admired writers takes us on a mind-altering journey to the frontiers of human consciousness When LSD was first discovered in the 1940s, it seemed to researchers, scientists and doctors as if the world might be on the cusp of psychological revolution. It promised to shed light on the deep mysteries of consciousness, as well as offer relief to addicts and the mentally ill. But in the 1960s, with the vicious backlash against the counter-culture, all further research was banned. In recent years, however, work has quietly begun again on the amazing potential of LSD, psilocybin and DMT. Could these drugs in fact improve the lives of many people? Diving deep into this extraordinary world and putting himself forward as a guinea-pig, Michael Pollan has written a remarkable history of psychedelics and a compelling portrait of the new generation of scientists fascinated by the implications of these drugs. How to Change Your Mind is a report from what could very well be the future of human consciousness.

@herdyshepherd1 @michaelpollan Word up, Mr. Shepherd All of his books are excellent, and his latest (How To Change Your Mind) is another trailblazer 🍄      fuente
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.      fuente
One of my favorite books of the last five years.      fuente
A terrific doc version of his wonderful book. More kudos for @michaelpollan much deserved.      fuente
Three wonderful books I recommend that pertain to drug reform and depression – two issues in our minds this week – and some important connections between them: • Lost Connections by Johann Hari • Chasing the Scream by Johann Hari • How to Change Your Mind by Michael Pollan      fuente
Meantime, greatly learning from Mark Thompson's book on the Italian front in WW1      fuente
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.      fuente
A fun exploration of psychedelic drugs, especially for someone who has never tried them.      fuente
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.      fuente
Changed my mind, or at least some of the ideas held in my mind.      fuente
@ispekhov @cvuadvisors I’m fascinated with that after reading Michael Pollan book. Wish there was more widespread testing in the US      fuente
Excellent.      fuente
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).      fuente
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.      fuente
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      fuente
@SanityOnTheRun @tferriss yup! Fantastic book.      fuente
@superbryntendo First off: hope she feels better soon, and you stay healthy! I loved How To Change Your Mind by Pollan (and This Is Your Mind On Plants), also check out Matthew McConaughey’s book Greenlights. The audiobook that he reads is great.      fuente
