About the Book

The Kindle version is NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER (click here for the U.S. Amazon page).

 

The paperback version will also be released in August. To be notified, please join the mailing list.

 

It is a companion to the online guided meditation program comprised of nearly fifty guided meditation videos.

 

It is a non-religious meditation guide with recommendations for using meditation to prepare for your psychedelic journey, to use during your journey, and to use as lifelong integration following your journey (or in between your future journeys).

 

To be clear, this is not a Buddhist book. It is universal, useable by people from all traditions and spiritual inclinations. The "Golden Teacher" in the title is not a person.

 

It is the name of a popular strain of the Psilocybe cubensis mushroom, which inspired the author to write this book and create the online program over several of his own journeys with the mushroom.

The book and program are also beneficial to those who are only interested in the path of meditation. Using a psychedelic is not necessary for practicing these techniques.
