Shivitti: the eighth verse from the sixteenth Psalm,
“I have set the Lord always before me.”
Our example today for “psychedelic physiodelia” is from Shivitti: A Vision, the story of five journeys with LSD to heal Auschwitz nightmares.
A survivor of Auschwitz is living in Israel in the 1970s and hears of other sufferers of concentration camp symptoms finding relief at a clinic in Europe; the treatment uses injections of LSD to heal traumas.
Ka-Tzetnik 135633, Mr. De-Nur, the survivor and author, writes of his healing experiences that are based on the activation of his serotonin system via LSD.
De-Nur’s serotonin-induced visions are psychedelic in both meanings of the word; they happen in his mind and embrace his soul.
De-Nur’s serotonin-induced visions are physiodelia as well; the LSD-injected journey concludes when the doctor (guide) simply touches the patient’s arm – which ends the trip and creates space for healing.
De-Nur reported hearing the Creative Voice in a session and was able to heal his Auschwitz nightmares after five LSD treatments.
