Doors of Perception Episode

Aldous Huxley describes his experience on Mescalin in the 1950’s and as I read through this book I was in awe at how similar Huxley’s experience was to my first psilocybin trip.

In this episode I discuss 7 quotes from Doors of Perception including my thoughts and some of my experiences that relate to this book.
