Descending the Mountain

What happens when you administer psilocybin to experienced Zen meditators? A neuroscientist and a Zen master carry out a double-blind experiment on a sphinxlike mountain in Switzerland. Their goal: to examine the nature of consciousness. This documentary takes us on a journey of mystical revelations, experienced through meditation and psilocybin by blending visual art, spiritual understanding, and scientific research.
