Descending The Mountain

Descending The Mountain

How can psychedelics expand our consciousness? And how can this contribute to deep meditation? Two worlds collide in this double-blind experiment, that of neuroscientist Franz Vollenweider and zen master Vanja Palmers. Under their watchful eyes, a group of experienced meditators embarks on a mind-blowing trip in a monastery located in the Swiss mountains. This enchanting film shows us the possible value of psychedelics and mystical experiences, for both science and humanity.
