Benefits to Psilocybin Plus Meditation

Another piece of research from Johns Hopkins showing that high dose psychedelics with proper set and setting, combined with high support for meditative practice, cause enduring positive changes.

The study showed robust interactive positive effects of psilocybin dose and added support for spiritual practices on a wide range of longitudinal measures at 6 months including interpersonal closeness, gratitude, life meaning/purpose, forgiveness, death transcendence, daily spiritual experiences, religious faith and coping, and rating of participants by community observers. Analyses suggest that the determinants of these effects were the intensity of the psilocybin-occasioned mystical experience and the rates of engagement with meditation and other spiritual practices.
