One man’s psychedelic journey to confront his cancer

Bansal was as surprised as anyone. “Had somebody told me going into this that I would come out a transformed being or a person with a completely different perspective on life, I would never have believed it.”

“It’s as if there is a part of me that is watching myself objectively, going through the painful process of treatments saying, ‘It’s all right. I will be with you through this journey, through this experience. Don’t worry.'” Months after taking that one dose, Bansal still calls it as “the single most powerful experience of my life.” The change in his mental outlook, Bansal says, was profound, particularly in regard to his cancer. “I understood that I still had cancer and that it could kill me in a few weeks, or months, or years. But my perspective had shifted.” Bansal still has tough days with his cancer. Recently, immunotherapy treatment for his bladder caused side effects — pain, bleeding, fever, and chills — for most of the night. He felt like he was “passing razor blades” when he peed. “And yet it was somehow OK,” he says. “It was only pain.”
