**Soul, spirit, perception, mind-manifesting**

The term psychedelic is derived from the Greek words psyche, “soul” and deloun, “to manifest”, translating to “mind-manifesting”. A psychedelic experience is characterized by the perception of aspects of one’s mind previously unknown, or by the creative exuberance of the mind liberated from its ostensibly ordinary fetters.

The term was first coined as a noun in 1957 by psychiatrist Humphry Osmond as an alternative descriptor for hallucinogenic drugs in the context of psychedelic psychotherapy. Seeking a name for the experience induced by LSD, Osmond consulted Aldous Huxley. Huxley suggested the term “phanerothyme,” from the Greek terms for “to show” and “spirit.” In a letter to Osmond, he wrote:

To make this mundane world sublime,
Take half a gram of phanerothyme

To which Osmond responded:

To fathom Hell or soar angelic,
Just take a pinch of psychedelic

Come and allow the psychedelic music to fire magical synopsis in your soul-
don’t miss out- this is going to be quite a show…
