A comprehensive guide to psilocybin mushrooms and their impact on our psychology, biology, and social development.

How–and why–do psychedelics exist? Did psilocybin catalyze our early human ancestors’ social evolution? And how can an integral understanding of psychedelics quite literally change the world?
In an ambitious and comprehensive look at psilocybin–and how humanity co-evolved alongside mushrooms–Jahan Khamsehzadeh, PhD, explores our historical and ancestral relationship to psychedelics, presents new and exciting research, and explores what psilocybin can mean for us today.
Separated into three sections–Present, Past, and Future–Psilocybin Connection advances our understanding of psychedelics in unexpected and original ways. Khamsehzadeh shares compelling research that suggests that naturally-occurring psychedelics may have played an essential role in our social, cultural, and linguistic evolution. Supported by archaeological evidence, neuroscience, and academic studies, he explores how mushrooms gave rise to art and expression, impacted spiritual experiences, and even catalyzed human brain development.
Blending the selected experiences of nine people’s transformative experiences, his own psychedelic awakening, and the most comprehensive synthesis of psilocybin research to date, Khamsehzadeh’s Psilocybin Connection moves our understanding of the psychedelic mushroom forward toward a fresh, hopeful, and exciting future.
