Whether you are an experienced psychonaut or a first-time tripper, absorbing understandable and accurate advice about the psychedelic experience before embarking on an entheogenic journey can be extremely valuable. Although I have several years worth of personal experience and tips and tricks that I have picked up from many sources along the way, I was pleasantly surprised to find Julian Vayne's book Getting Higher: The Manual of Psychedelic Ceremonyto contain plenty of suggestions and ideas ...more
Three and a half stars. This was a nice bunch of ideas on how to safely and effectively host a ceremony with entheogenic substances. Though the author is apparently known for writing more on magick, the ceremonies, scripts, and ideas listed herein were very inclusive of any religion, and even no religion at all, as so many of the "magickal" acts could also be explained or described in more atheist-friendly terms.

A nice short, sharp, easy read. It does what the title says, provides a general guide to taking psychedelics with the aim of having a safe, enjoyable experience aimed at personal or spiritual growth. I got a reasonable amount out of it, and will refer back to it in the future. Rated it a bit lower purely because I found it a little tedious to get through, I could only handle it in small doses.
A great manual for helping to improve trips on psychedelics. Lots of tips and examples for different purposes. I definitely learned a lot. I'd recommend it to anyone who regularly takes psychedelics or wants to explore them in more depth.
