NEW BOOK! "A.P. Psychedelics: Going Beyond Set and Setting to Achieve Visionary Virtuosity"



Well hey! I haven't posted here in a bit, but I've been busy. I just published a new book, A.P. Psychedelics: Going Beyond Set and Setting to Achieve Visionary Virtuosity. Here's the marketing blurb:

Since the early 1960s, 'set and setting' have been regarded as the determining conditions for a beneficial psychedelic experience. To these considerations the phonomantic method, a groundbreaking approach to psychedelic practice, adds three more 'S's: structure, stress, and skill.

With courage, discipline, and effort, a little bit of danger and a whole lot of fun, you can learn to use the phonomantic S triad to control the effects of psychedelics and develop supranormal psychological and spiritual capacities.

A.P. Psychedelics: Going Beyond Set and Setting to Achieve Visionary Virtuosity explains how. 

Really, that only scratches the surface. If this year you're going to buy only one cogent and frequently hilarious introduction to advanced psychedelic practice, make it A.P. Psychedelics, baby! It's only ten bucks--$1.99 for the Kindle, cheapskate!

Thank you and good night!

A New Way to Use Psychedelics

I want to tell you about my approach to working with psychedelics, because I think I'm breaking new ground. If you or someone you know is working along similar lines, get in touch. I want to talk with you. For now, at least, I'm calling this approach "phonomancy," meaning "divination via sound." If you're a recreational user, it likely won't appeal to you. If you're someone who's dipping your toe in the psychedelic water via microdosing, or someone who is primarily interested in using psychedelics to treat trauma, depression, or addiction issues, you might find the practice I'm going to describe off-putting or even alarming. That's because phonomancy is not therapeutic--it's augmentative. It's a program for developing supranormal emotional and spiritual capacities via psychological hormesis. Some risk, pain, and fear are part of the process. But that's the price of transformation. THE ORIGINAL TWO "S

Ceremony Report #6 - The Divine Pygmalion

  Hey! Here's the report I filed for the phonomantic rite held on Sunday, May 30th, 2021.   And here is the transcription of my narration of my experience: “Up and Atom” This was noteworthy for two reasons. Before the song started, I was confronted with Resistance in the form of an African tribal deity. Its initial presentation was as a swarm of brown and black beads streaming out of the jungle. These resolved into tiny gorilla heads, and then these gathered into a massive ball that became the head of an idol. It was utterly opposed to me—it had something to do with racial grievance. And I engaged it and told it was right to be pissed, but that I would work to make things right. So I moved on, and in the context of working with the song , I started to see a white glow in the bottom periphery of my awareness. She was a sun. I could feel it roaring through. There was a sense that I was enclosing it, like a Dyson sphere, and I was absorbing as much of the energy as I could ta
