Praise for Manifesting Minds
“As psychedelics move from taboo subject to trendy topic, and as mainstream media outlets
excitedly cover new psychedelic research, this collection of serious and highly readable articles is an especially wonderful gift. 
This is a must-have anthology for its amazing diversity and valuable content.”
—James Fadiman, PhD, researcher and author of The Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide: Safe,
Therapeutic, and Sacred Journeys
“A deep, exciting collection of brilliant minds sharing research, cosmologies, humor, and
imagination centered on my favorite topics: psychedelics and consciousness. Fascinating reading!”
