Going on a psychedelic ceremony, or even simply smoking a joint, can cause drastic changes in how we see and perceive the world. While potentially therapeutic, getting high can also bring challenges, and growing from your trip is not always easy. I found from my trips that tuning in on a movie can often lead the participant to meaningful insights and epiphanies, and sometimes a good film may even stop a full-on bad trip.

Today we are going to discuss a few movies that I enjoyed watching during my psychedelic experiences. Each one of the following movies were chosen because they illustrate bigger themes behind the story that are almost invisible when sober, but clear when the viewer is experiencing altered states of consciousness.
