Anthony P. Bossis, PhD

Existential despair, anxiety and depression are all too common at the end of life. Psychologist Anthony Bossis conducts FDA-approved research to understand how, through a single psilocybin-induced mystical experience, these symptoms might be alleviated or even transformed – into acceptance, enhanced wellbeing and personal meaning.
