HEFFTER RESEARCHER ROLAND GRIFFITHS ON PSILOCYBIN AND MYSTICISM | TEDX

In this TEDx talk, Heffter board member Roland Griffiths speaks about his research on psilocybin and the mystical experience. Griffiths and his team at Johns Hopkins recruited 36 individuals with experience in spiritual or religious activities but no prior use of psychedelics. Although the primary goal of the study was to assess the effects of large doses of psilocybin, the study participants reported profound mystical experiences. Seventy percent of the participants reported that the psilocybin experience was among the top five most important events in their lives. According to Griffiths,”Psilocybin looks identical to naturally occurring religious experience.”
