    Dr. Michael Schwartz, Clinical Professor, Texas A&M University

    A New Understanding is an outstanding film. Over the past two decades, there has been a resurgence of scientific inquiry into potential therapeutic benefits of psilocybin. Much is new about psilocybin as a medicine, an entheogen, and a window into human consciousness. A New Understanding informs us, in a remarkably lively, balanced, entertaining, engrossing and informative way. Don't miss this exceptional movie.

    "The documentary film, A New Understanding: The Science of Psilocybin, is putting an original face on psychedelics. Not the typical faces in the media of delusional drop-outs associated with drugs, but the faces of normal Americans, some suffering from the final stages of terminal cancer.  After one dose of psilocybin the face of joy, relief and peace is nothing short of miraculous.  A medical mystical miracle is in our midst, and this film beautifully describes the facts! Bravo to Robert Barnhart and all the production team, the courageous chemists, doctors and patients who are helping our society re-evaluate Psilocybin as a medicine for the Soul."
