In The Marriage of the Sun and Moon, Andrew Weil reports from the frontiers of consciousness, exploring further the ideas from his first book, The Natural Mind. these essays examine solar eclipses, laughter, marijuana, chilies, mushrooms, sweat-lodge ceremonies, coffee, yage, and more, and they are as provocative and relevant today as when they were first published in 1980.

"Interesting ideas on every page, and this book, like The Natural Mind, is as mind-expanding as any drug."
-- William Nova, Boston Globe

"A steadily interesting and intriguing book . . . and although Dr. Weil's travels take him deep into the exotic country of psychedelia, he emerges with a temperate and sane report that seeks to take us beyond drugs."
-- Richard Lingeman, New York Times Book Review

"A fascinating admixture of scientific precision, pioneering self-exposure, incredible willingness to plunge into things -- plus a gift for writing about it in a readable, engaing way. He is working on an important border area between science and religion."
-- Harvey Cox
