Is mysticism limited to religion?


Mysticism is not limited to religion. As discussed by Tim Ferriss and Michael Pollan, mystical or spiritual experiences often involve a sense of merging with something larger than oneself, which can be achieved through methods other than traditional religious practices. Pollan mentions that such experiences can be accessed through psychedelics, which allow individuals to subdue their ego and feel part of a larger entity. This suggests that mystical experiences can arise in various contexts, including but not limited to religious or spiritual practices 1.
