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.

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.
