The popular book from Michael Pollan's book How to change your mind will be released on Netflix on July 12 in a 4-part series. Do you want to know more about psychedelics, therapy and its application, then this is highly recommended.

Filmmaker and Academy Award winner Alex Gibney and New York Times bestselling author Michael Pollan present this documentary series in four parts, each focusing on a different mind-altering substance: LSD, psilocybin, MDMA and mescaline.
With Pollan as our guide, we travel to the frontiers of the psychedelic renaissance and look back at an almost forgotten historical context. The potential of these substances is being looked at. View here the trailer.

Psychedelic therapy with the following substances

Chapter 1: LSD
From its inception in 1943 to the current microdosing trend, LSD has expanded minds and changed lives with the help of counterculture gurus.

Chapter 2: Psilocybin
Long considered sacred by the indigenous Mazatec in Mexico, magic mushrooms have recently become the subject of scientific studies exploring their potential for treating mental illness.

Chapter 3: MDMA
Praised by therapists and ravers alike, Ecstasy stands out as the first psychedelic likely to be approved as a drug by the FDA, thanks to passionate proponents and its value as a treatment for PTSD.

Chapter 4: Mescaline

Mescaline is the psychoactive molecule found in San Pedro and peyote cacti. Native Americans have had to fight for legal access to these traditional sacred medicines. They are taken in religious ceremonies to treat addictions and trauma.
