InPresence host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in "parapsychology" ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). For many years he served as president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people were supported and encouraged in developing inner intuitive abilities.
Here Jeff shares his recollections regarding the use of psychedelic drugs -- going back to the late 1960s. He emphasizes the importance of "set and setting" and points out that, while he experienced more than 100 psychedelic sessions, they were all in the context of philosophical inquiry and self-exploration. His stable personality was also a positive factor. He describes engaging in lengthy conversations with Hardin B. Jones, a medical physicist who denigrated psychedelic drug use.
