Dr. Mark Ferrara on the Peak Experiences of Cannabis and Spirituality
One of the most important relationships that human beings have with plants is changing our consciousness. Dr. Mark Ferrara discusses this in a recent essay and in his book, “Sacred Bliss: A Spiritual History of Cannabis.” It’s about peak experiences and psychological health, how this relates to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, and how the history of the great civilizations gives us a blueprint for using plants like cannabis to transcend ourselves and to bond with our community and the cosmos.
