Roberts returns to discuss the new anthology he edited:  Psychedelics and Spirituality:  The Sacred Use of LSD, Psilocybin, and MDMA for Human Transformation, 3rd Ed.    In this book, more than 25 spiritual leaders, scientists, and psychedelic visionaries examine how we can return to the primary spiritual encounters at the basis of all religions working with entheogens.  This groundbreaking work contains contributions form Albert Hofmann, Huston Smith, Stanislav Grof, Charles Tart, Sasha Shulgin, Brother David Steindl-Rast, and many others.
