What happens when you administer psilocybin to experienced Zen meditators? To understand how psychedelics reveal the nature of consciousness, psychiatrist Franz Vollenweider and Zen master Vanja Palmers guide experienced meditators—who have never used psychedelics before—through a ground-breaking scientific experiment on the majestic Mount Rigi in Switzerland. Descending the Mountain takes viewers on a journey of mystical revelations, experienced through meditation and psilocybin.
