MAPS Bulletin Vol XXI No 1: Spring 2011 - Inside Cover Image - Psychedelic Art - Honor Thy Daughter Ad by Marilyn Howell
The latest book from the MAPS press - Honor Thy Daughter - is the story of a family torn apart by cancer and their desperate search for a cure. Their journey takes them through the darkest corners of corporate medicine, the jungles of Brazil, the pallid hallways of countless hospitals, and ultimately into the hands of an anonymous therapist who brings the family psychological, emotional, and spiritual healing through MDMA-assisted psychotherapy. Howell first shared her story in the May 15, 2006, Boston Globe article “A Good Death,” but chose to remain anonymous. Now, with psychedelic medicine losing its stigma and reentering the mainstream vocabulary, Howell comes out of the closet and shares with us how psychedelic therapy helped heal the bonds ripped apart by illness. (See story in this issue of the Bulletin.)
