• Image of The Joyous Cosmology: Adventures in the Chemistry of Consciousness - Alan Watts

The Joyous Cosmology is Alan Watts’s exploration of the insight that the consciousness-changing drugs LSD, mescaline & psilocybin can facilitate “when accompanied with the sustained philosophical reflection by a person who is in search, not of kicks, but of understanding.” More than an artifact, it is both a riveting memoir of Watts’s experiments & a profound meditation on our perennial questions about the nature of existence & the existence of the sacred.
