Psilocybin at the End of Life: A Doorway to Peace

divider

Heffter board member, Dr. Stephen Ross, has written a profoundly accessible article on the somber topic of dying. Dr. Ross addresses the medical communities’ odd reluctance  in dealing with death and the distress this further inflicts on patients. He discusses “bad death” and “good death” in relation to  health care and the dying. Spirituality and religion are integrated in his discourse. Most importantly solutions are presented. The article can be viewed in its entirety in the  current journal of  IONS (INSTITUTE OF NOETIC SCIENCES).
