1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

A New Manual for Guides

A New Manual for Guides

    On November 3, National Geographic aired the first of several broadcasts of EXPLORER: Inside LSD. The producers did a good job of showing scientific research being done with LSD in different settings (past and current). The show included several segments about personal use. These ranged from warnings about the danger of "bad trips" to the possibility of a spiritual experience. While the use of LSD for enthogenic expansion of consciousness was touched on, that possibility was not developed. There were several scenes showing the positive role a psychotherapist could play, but no discussion on the value of having a guide. If you are interested in learning more about the role of a guide and the set and setting which makes personal spiritual experiences more possible, there is a manual being written for people to use psychedelics in ways that are sacred and safe. This manual provides support and information for people acting as guides.
