A Call for a Psychedelic Sanctuary

by Bruce Eisner

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.
