Sacred Knowledge: Hopkins Playlist for Psilocybin Studies
    #22755406 - 01/09/16 05:19 AM (4 years, 9 months ago)



Sacred Knowledge: Hopkins Playlist for Psilocybin Studies


Quote:

Psychedelics and music have long been linked, but at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, where William A. Richards conducts research, music plays an important part in ensuring the stability off entheogen study participants. In this excerpt from Sacred Knowledge: Psychedelics and Religious Experiences, Richards explains the role of music in his work. The excerpt is followed by the playlist Richards compiled.

Part of a new guide’s orientation at Johns Hopkins entails becoming familiar with the supportive music used in a particular research study and the rationale for its selection. We have learned that in high-dose sessions, especially during the onset and intense period of entheogen effects, the supportive structure of the music is more important than either the guide’s or the volunteer’s personal musical preferences. In states of ego transcendence, the everyday self as the perceiver of music may no longer exist, having entered into a unitive awareness that is claimed to be quite independent of whatever sonic frequencies are coming into the ears through the headphones or loudspeakers. As the ego approaches its dissolution and when it begins to be reconstituted, however, the nonverbal structure of the music may provide significant support. Thus, sensitivity to the therapeutic potential of carefully selected music may be an important factor in enhancing psychological safety.

One playlist that has been carefully developed through trial and error and has been found to work well with many different people over time is included at the end of this book. It includes a significant amount of classical music, symphonic and choral, as well as some Hindu chant, in the intense portions of the session and lighter selections near the return to everyday reality at the end of the day. We discovered in early research in the 1960s, notably with some alcoholics who had never appreciated classical music, that Brahms symphonies and similar works resonated deeply within them and proved highly effective in providing nonverbal structure and support. Many of those people not only discovered an appreciation of classical music within themselves, but went out and purchased records, tapes, or compact disks to facilitate the continuing integration of their experiences and for future enjoyment. It may be noted that, as consciousness is returning to ordinary awareness after intense experiences of a mystical, visionary, or psychodynamic nature, most any style of music can be explored with delight. At this time, one’s personal favorite selections may be enjoyed with fresh appreciation.

That's really intense. It makes sense to consider that music might be a powerful enough force to transcend a person's preference (life experience, nostalgia, whatever reason a person likes certain music) and create a common experience. Pretty whacky.

Considering we keep hearing more and more about the Hopkins psilocybin trials I figure there may be more interest in this. I personally talked to the research team at Hopkins this year and they told me they are still using this playlist in active research.  In case anyone was looking for the playlist details and didn't have the aforementioned book, here it is:

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________
You can find numerous playlists on YouTube that try to mimic this list, but the playlist format is worthless for actual trip music since there will be ads between songs.  Also all of the playlists have gaps, substitutions, songs that have since been removed or taken private, etc.  I am working on my own improved version of this that will not have gaps and will be downloadable, a single track, not a playlist.
