Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Low Doses of Dipropyltryptamine in Psychotherapy Robert A. Soskin, PhD; Stainslav Grof, MD; William A. Richards, STM, Baltimore
The following is an interview with a 30-year-old, single man, who was quite immature and dependent. This was his second interview. The dose was 25 mg of DPT.
It was quite obvious today that [the patient] received DPT, and I would estimate that the dosage may have been around 25 mg. After the injection, he became almost immediately aware of the drug effects, particularly as they affected his visual perception. He was quite struck with the vividness of the colors and changing character of the painting on my wall. After about ten minutes, he complained of headache and shortly thereafter began to vomit quite violently. We transferred to one of the psychedelic treatment rooms, where I had the patient lie down and covered him with a blanket, as he complained of feeling cold.
At this point, the patient seemed quite regressed and appeared to recapture with vivid intensity experiences in his childhood dating back to 3 years of age. The session had somewhat the character of free-association as he skipped back and forth from one emotional experience to another. It appeared that he was mentally reliving many of these experiences and, at times, seemed somewhat oblivious of the therapist's presence.
