A Call for a Psychedelic Sanctuary

by Bruce Eisner
The numbers who passed through Aldous Huxley's well-described "doors of perception," stepping out of Plato's cave to glimpse the white light of the sun, far exceeded any generation before it. The mystical experience, from being something reserved for saints, became available on sugar cubes.

For many, LSD was a roller coaster ride through their unconscious-a kind of virtual Disneyland. But for a few, it took on a significance that they called "mystical" or
"religious." It was these profound experiences which led a large segment of the Boomer generation to a commitment to altruism and idealistic pursuits that were to become the
passion during what is often referred to as the "Psychedelic Sixties." In many, that commitment to change has never really faded.
