THE MEDICINE: Science & Psychedelics.

From Albert Hofmann’s living room to ayahuasca research in the Amazon, from John Hopkins University Medical School to NYU’s brain research lab - join us on this compelling investigation into the nature of human experience.

After a thirty-year hiatus, leading-edge research progresses on the potential that psychedelic compounds have to heal and add profound depth to human experience. The research and commitment of Timothy Leary, Richard Alpert and Stan Groff in the 50's and 60's have given way to 21st century science. As neuroscience provides new understanding to us of relationship between brain chemistry, electrical activity, and mental function - the philosophical and experiential quest for consciousness is informed by diligent research. This documentary was produced and directed by Roslyn Dauber.


Robert J. Barnhart has been a lay leader in the field of entheogenic research for twenty-five years and currently spends most of his time with his 7 year-old daughter, Phoebe, for whom this documentary is being made. He has a BA in Comparative Religion from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. Robert is a major sponsor of the CIIS Kranske Scholarship Program.

Roslyn Dauber has been making documentaries for twenty years. She was an associate professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder and is now a full-time filmmaker. Her most recent works include Tara’s Daughters; One Gay, One Straight; and Upward and Outward: Scientific Inquiry on the Tibetan Plateau.


Frank Echenhofer received his PhD. in Developmental Psychology from Temple University in 1985. He has been a clinical research associate at Temple University and has been in private practice since 1985. His focus, which bridge east-west psychology, specializes in the general areas of Eastern and Western comparative psychology, philosophy, and psychophysiology.
