Thomas B. Roberts (Ph.D. Stanford) investigates mindbody states for the leads they provide for learning, cognition, intelligence, creativity, mental health, psychological processes, and abilities that may reside in them as described in his book Psychedelic Horizons. He specializes in psychedelics, particularly their entheogenic (spiritual) uses see Psychoactive Sacramentals: Essays on Entheogens and Religion. His online archive Religion and Psychoactive Sacraments http://www.csp.org/chrestomathy/ excerpts over 550 books, dissertations, and topical issues of journals. The 2-volume set Psychedelic Medicine extends this interest into health studies. He has taught Foundations of Psychedelic Studies at Northern since 1981; this is the first such catalog-listed course at a college or univeristy. He has lectured on psychedelics in Finland, Iceland, the Czech Republic, Switzer land, Mexico, and Canada and published over 100 articles, chapters, and book reviews. He originated Bicycle Day.
