Guest Profile: Robert Barnhart

A New Understanding: The Science of Psilocybin is a documentary based on Federal Drug Administration approved research with the medicine psilocybin conducted by leading doctors at The Heffter Research Institute at UCLA, New York University, and John's Hopkins University. The results of the phase 2 studies have been published in top tier, peer-reviewed psychiatric journals. As a board member of The Heffter Research Institute and The Multi-Disciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, I have a long standing interest in understanding and sharing these important FDA approved research studies.

My ambition is that the research documented in this film may in some manner help alleviate human suffering. Shaping a better world for our children, and for my ten-year-old daughter to understand what is important and meaningful to her father, have been the motivating factors for me in delivering this film.

I myself have suffered from cancer. At an early age, I saw my mother pass away from leukemia, and lost a close friend to a brain tumor. I have witnessed firsthand the suffering of those around me and wished so much for alleviation in their struggle. The film offers others the opportunity to find comfort and relief by giving access to information about psychoactive treatment.

Through the vehicle of this film, compelling scientific research is communicated that may assist in changing the legality of psilocybin. Legalizing this medicine to make it available as part of a therapeutic practice to those people who can benefit from this treatment would mean accessibility for end of life patients to experience profoundly more positive states of being.
