Originally issued in 1966 as The Psychedelic Experience: Readings from Book "The Psychedelic Experience: A Manual Based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead", Folkways 9701/Broadside Records BRX 601.

In the present recording two passages have been selected: "Going Out": to be listened to at the very beginning of the session, just before and after the time when the going out begins, i.e. when the psychedelic beings to take effect. "Coming Back" : to be listened to towards the last third of the session, when the ego is beginning to re-assert itself, when "I" first makes its appearance in thought and speech. The exact time will of course vary from person to person and with the particular chemical used. "Coming Back" increases in effectiveness if repeated two or three times during the re-entry phase. "Going Out" may also be played toward the end of the session if the voyager wishes to regain the earliest and highest part of the voyage.
