A Path with Psychedelics

How did we get here, and where are we going? How do we heal our wounds, grow and mature as human beings? Good questions! We weren’t born with a road map, so we have to figure this out ourselves—if we are up to the challenge. It does help to have a friend who is a few steps ahead on the path to guide us when needed. Chris writes about his own astonishing journey of psychic healing and spiritual exploration with the aid of mind-changing medicines. Although this is the story of his personal path, it is a useful example of the universal human journey; it is entertaining, encouraging, and enlightening.

Healing with Psychedelics

Psychological injuries and trauma suffered during childhood are extremely common. They lead to all sorts of addictive behaviors, as well as anxiety, depression, and debilitating and life-threatening physical maladies. In Healing with Psychedelics Chris writes about how to recognize the often-hidden histories that caused us as children to create a false self, and changed how we operate in this world. He then takes us on his personal healing journey, revealing the details of his own experience and describing the process of psychedelic-assisted sacred-medicine therapy. It is his hope that his example will encourage others to seek and realize profound transformation for themselves. The essays are rich in first-hand accounts of Chris's spiritual experiences, meditation practices, and healing journey. The poems will sing to your heart and call to your unconscious.

"Chris Becker has given us a gift with his story of his personal journey of healing childhood pain and facing his alcohol addiction. Offering the reader an inside look at his experience of using mind-expanding medicine to face his deep-seated feelings of abandonment and loss that led to his addictions years later, highlights how this new treatment approach works. We have needed a new approach to addiction treatment. This is a welcome addition to the recovery literature."
