Every few years, there is a surge in scientific interest followed by breathless proclamations of the long-awaited psychedelic renaissance. The story always follows the same arc: “Psychedelic therapy showed huge promise in the 1950s, was crushed by the establishment in the late 1960s, and is now being revived by a group of fearless visionaries. In five years, 10 at the most, doctors will be routinely prescribing LSD, psilocybin, MDMA and other psychedelic drugs for a range of conditions.”

This cycle is now entering a new stage, with a series of startling insights gracing the pages of leading journals and new clinical trials making progress. More researchers are accepting the power of psychedelics and their unprecedented potential to treat disease and psychological trauma, but most of all, to reorganize the brain and shift thought patterns.

Psychedelics” are psychoactive substances with the ability to expand human awareness beyond our normal modes of perception. On the back of encouraging results from clinical trials and brain scans, scientists are again confidently asserting that psychedelics are on the verge of medical approval for conditions like depression and PTSD.
