Council on Spiritual Practices

The Council on Spiritual Practices is a non-profit that promotes psychedelics research and spiritual development.

Council on Spiritual Practices

The council was founded by Bob Jesse and has been a silent driver/initial spark behind the research at places like Johns Hopkins University.

The Code of Ethics for Spiritual Guides published in 1995 has also been very influential in the psychedelic community.

“The Council on Spiritual Practices is a collaboration among spiritual guides, experts in the behavioral and biomedical sciences, and scholars of religion, dedicated to making direct experience of the sacred more available to more people. There is evidence that such encounters can have profound benefits for those who experience them, for their neighbors, and for the world. CSP has a twofold mission: to identify and develop approaches to primary religious experience that can be used safely and effectively, and to help individuals and spiritual communities bring the insights, grace, and joy that arise from direct perception of the divine into their daily lives.”

On their website you can also find a useful index of excepts from psychedelic text (from Huxley to Huston).
