Huxley, who had written extensively about his psychedelic experiences under the influence of mescaline in Doors of Perception (1954), here writes about the pursuit of the visionary experience as a vehicle for change and a more beautiful reality. He elaborates on the various methods of access to the visionary world, including spontaneous, induced, and chemical access, with separate sections on the usage of mushrooms and how light can enhance the visionary experience. The first separate printing, is substantially expanded from the two which precede them, both produced by mimeograph and issued in small numbers. One of approximately 100 copies printed for distribution to members of the International Federation for Internal Freedom in 1963.

 

This link features all of the text from the TIMOTHY LEARY "How to Change Behavior" article.
