Information about the History of Psychedelics Courses

The history of modern psychedelic research began in the early 1960s with the work of scientists such as Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert at Harvard University. They conducted research on psychedelics such as LSD and psilocybin in order to understand their potential therapeutic benefits for treating conditions such as addiction and mental health disorders. This research helped to launch the field of psychedelic therapy, and sparked interest in using psychedelics as a tool for personal and spiritual growth.

As the research continued and more studies were conducted, psychedelics became increasingly popular among the general public. They were seen as a tool for self-exploration and personal growth, and were used by many people in various subcultures such as the counterculture, the hippie movement, and the New Age movement. This increased popularity led to a growing cultural acceptance of psychedelics, and they were widely used recreationally.

However, as the 1960s progressed, concerns began to grow about the potential negative effects of psychedelics. Governments around the world began to crack down on their use, and many countries banned them outright. As a result, research into psychedelics came to a halt and remained largely dormant for several decades. Despite this setback, in recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in the therapeutic potential of psychedelics and research has started again with renewed vigor.
