Psychonaut: An Explorer of the Mind, who journeys into his/her psyche using hallucinogenic drugs or other consciousness altering techniques. Psychonauts believe that these spiritual experiences, when properly processed, lead to long-term and positive benefits in their everyday lives.

A sailor of the mind/soul) refers both to a methodology for describing and explaining the subjective effects of altered states of consciousness, including those induced by mind altering substances, and to a research paradigm in which the researcher voluntarily immerses him/herself into an altered state by means of such techniques, as a means to explore human experience and existence.

The term has been applied diversely, to cover all activities by which altered states are induced and utilized for spiritual purposes or the exploration of the human condition, including shamanism, lamas of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, sensory deprivation, and archaic/modern drug users who use entheogenic substances in order to gain deeper insights and spiritual experiences.
