For over thirty years, R. Coleman specialized in facilitating psychedelic drug-
assisted psychotherapy sessions in Southern California. He specialized in working with survivors of severe childhood trauma who were resistant to, or disappointed with mainstream therapy. The foundation of his work was built on twenty years of serious spiritual practice and extensive studies of psychotherapeutic principles.
His passion for this cutting-edge modality came from personal experience using
the drugs to heal his own extensive childhood wounds.
When he began his psychedelic therapy in 1986, information about psychedelic
therapy was sparse, and qualified, psychedelically-informed therapists were
almost impossible to find. Consequently, he spent years discovering what works
and what doesn’t—both for himself and for his patients. He wrote this book to
share these discoveries.
