A classic account of the psychedelic experience

The Joyous Cosmology is Alan Watts’s exploration of the insight that the consciousness-changing drugs LSD, mescaline, and psilocybin can facilitate when accompanied with 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 personal experiments and a profound meditation on our perennial questions about the nature of existence and the existence of the sacred.

Includes Watts’s article Psychedelics and Religious Experience”

About the Author:

Spiritual philosopher Alan Watts, student of Buddhism, Anglican minister, chaplain at Northwestern University, and author of more than twenty books, died in 1973.

Review:

Alan Watts describes with startling clarity and poetic beauty his drug-induced experiences.”
Contemporary Psychology

The Joyous Cosmology is a carrier wave of information and insight, which has lost none of its subtlety, suppleness, or zest.”
— from the new introduction by Daniel Pinchbeck, author of Breaking Open the Head

A stirring introduction to one of mankind’s newest self-examinations.”
Newsweek
