On the 16th of January, 1960, a day-long symposium on lysergic acid diethylamide was held at the Napa State Hospital, Imola, California. The symposium attracted considerable regional attention and was later broadcast over KPFA, an educational FM station. Because of its length it has been impossible to publish it in its entirety. As a joint contribution of the Mental Research Institute, Palo Alto, JNMD herewith presents papers given at the symposium by three members of that Institute, Dr. Charles Savage, Dr. James Terrill and Dr. Donald D. Jackson. The manuscripts have been edited by Dr. Savage and where possible have been brought up to date with footnotes. An effort has been made to capture the original spirit of the symposium, which was characterized by a turning away from the conventional view of LSD as a mere facilitator of therapy toward the view of it as a new experience, a new beginning.
