Psychedelia - Suggested Readings
"Seeking the Magic Mushroom" is a 1957 photo essay by amateur mycologist Robert Gordon Wasson describing his experience taking psilocybin mushrooms in 1955, with curandera Maria Sabina, during a Mazatec ritual in Oaxaca, Mexico. Wasson was one of the first Westerners to participate in a Mazatec ceremony and to describe the psychoactive effects of the Psilocybe species. This essay was first printed in TIME magazine. Wasson is widely known as the father of ethnomycology.
