A long time hero who had a big influence on me, Myron Stolaroff, passed away peacefully in his sleep yesterday. He was one of the earliest pioneer in psychedelic research and a wise elder to many of us. Of all the psychedelic elders, I considered Myron to be the most humble and emotionally honest, and because of that I truly looked up to him and admired him. He will be sorely missed.
For an in depth and very personal account of what these medicines can do read Myron’s book Thanatos To Eros, 35 Years of Psychedelic Exploration.
