On February 14th (Valentine’s Day), 1993, Caveh Zahedi, being without a date, decided to ingest 5 grams of hallucinogenic mushrooms. For the first time in his mushroom-taking experience, he had an experience of “divine possession,” in which he felt that a divine being took possession of his body and spoke through him, in a voice that was not his and with knowledge that he himself did not possess. He afterwards tried several times to repeat the experience. I Was Possessed By God is the documentary record of one such experience.
