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 notes that he could divide his life into two phases: before and after psychedelics. Before psychedelics, growing up as a teenager in Wisconsin, he imbibed alcohol liberally. In Wisconsin, it was almost a patriotic duty to drink milk on weekdays -- and beer on weekends. He also notes that he has personally witnessed or known of many tragic circumstances resulting from alcohol use and abuse. He regards 12-step programs as a positive social contributing resulting from alcohol addiction.
