Tutor description

Overall behavior changes induced by psilocybin are largely psychological in nature. They include affective changes, disturbances in thinking, illusions, elementary and complex hallucinations, and alterations in ego-functioning (Vollenweider 1999). Also noted are changes in attention (Hasler 2004). Due to set (the mental stability and psychoemotional state of the person) and setting (the environment), and the highly subjective nature of psilocybins effects, a person's experience can be pleasant, or delightful, and include a deep sense of connection with others and a general sense of connection with nature and the universe, or can lead to deep-seated emotional conflicts, and result in temporary disconnection from reality (Perrine 1996).
