Excerpt(s): About the Pamphlet / Psychedelic drugs have been used ritually and spiritually since ancient times to attain heightened awareness and consciousness. In the 1960s the counter culture saw psychedelic drugs as a means of achieving cosmic insight and spirituality. In the 1980s, a new wave of psychedelic gatherings known as "raves " appeared, accompanied by the use of such drugs as MDMA (Ecstasy) and LSD. (page i)

In the 1960s, psychedelic drugs were seen as a means of achieving cosmic insight and spirituality. Today, the trend for those who used psychedelics in the 1960s is toward seeking and finding spirituality in recovery and through various Twelve Step approaches to abstinence and maturity.
