She has participated in most of Dr. Ruth-Inge Heinze’s 22 annual conferences on “The Study of Shamanism and Alternate Modes of Healing,” publishing articles in that journal about the use of trance states for age regression and for exploring past-life-like experiences.

Shulgin is an author and the wife of famous chemist
She has worked as a lay therapist with psychedelic substances such as MDMA and 2C-B in therapeutic settings while these drugs were still legal. In her writings, she stresses the potential of these drugs from a Jungian psychoanalytic perspective, as well as their use in combination with hypnotherapy. She often appears as a speaker at conventions, and has continued to advocate the use of psychedelics in therapeutical contexts.
Together with her husband she has authored the books PiHKAL and TiHKAL and contributed to the book Entheogens and the Future of Religion.
Her Husband Alexander "Sasha" Shulgin is credited with the popularization of MDMA, commonly known as ecstasy, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, especially for psychopharmaceutical use and the treatment of depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Altered States of Consciousness
The Play of Light is about the Beauty of Light, of Sound and of Form. As each of these is deeply resonant with the other, the underlying unity that they share is revealed within their dance; and can be realized through direct experience. Within this experience, the mind becomes still and spontaneous Meditation arises. I have developed this technique over a period of 45 years, and this is as effortless and joyful a path into meditation as I am aware of.
