Product Description:

It's no secret that some modern-day humans seek to affect their consciousness with certain drugs, but this A&E documentary finds that the practice has very deep historical roots. Interviews with academics and spiritual historians help uncover evidence of ancient man's use of psychotropic substances and mood-altering rituals.

Description by New Video Group:

Since mankind's beginning, and in every civilization, human beings have found ways to alter their consciousness in search of something "greater" than everyday reality. To this end, we have indulged in and experimented with all manner of frightening, toxic, even potentially lethal substances, in many different rituals. This revealing program delves into mankind's psyche in search of the key to our pervasive drive to experience something "beyond." Psychologists and physicians, including Dr. Andrew Weil, world-famous author of the bestselling Spontaneous Healing, offer insight into the physical and mental mechanisms and motivations behind this universal desire. Historians and spiritualists explore the ancient rituals of cultures worldwide that have sought visions and truth through altered consciousness, and illuminate the terrifying, exquisite visions that are revealed to those who journey beyond the constraints of the conscious mind.
