From their use as sacred medicine by ancient Mesoamericans to the recent explorations of their active ingredient in widely-heralded studies at Johns Hopkins, so-called "magic" mushrooms have fascinated, frightened, and illuminated our culture. Yet most people are unaware of the mushroom's fascinating journey from the hills of Mexico to the "psilocybin room" at Hopkins, where modern explorers have recreated ancient spiritual journeys. We will take a brief look at this fascinating history via images, photographs, and words from those who have delved into the mystic realms of the sacred mushroom, and ponder how the "little saints" will continue to influence human culture.
