Reader Mike thought this was an interesting post for this blog. Not sure how old this notice is, but it sure looks interesting.
Researchers at the Johns Hopkins University are seeking volunteers who have an active interest in exploring and developing their spiritual lives to participate in a scientific study of the combined effects of meditation, spiritual practice, and the entheogen psilocybin, a psychoactive substance found in mushrooms used as a sacrament in some cultures.
The study will take place over 6 to 8 months during which volunteers will be encouraged to initiate or maintain daily meditation and spiritual awareness practices. Volunteers will also receive careful preparation and 2 or 3 sessions in which they will receive psilocybin in a comfortable, supportive setting. Structured guidance will be provided during the session and afterwards to facilitate integration of the experiences. The study complies with FDA regulations.
Volunteers must be between the ages of 21 and 70, have no personal history of severe psychiatric illness, or recent history of alcoholism or drug abuse, have someone willing to pick them up and drive them home at the end of the two or three psilocybin sessions (around 5:00 PM).
