Well, here are 17 questions and answers about enlightenment from professor, author, and host of The Entheogenic Evolution, Martin Ball Ph.D.
Unlike other episodes of the podcast, this is not an interview between Martin and I. It is a reading of one of his essays. It was initially released on his podcast a few years ago, which is where I first heard it. Unfortunately, when I tried to find it in order to share it with some friends, I found it out it had been taken down. I felt this an important piece of work and thus messaged Martin and was granted his permission to release it through ATTMind Radio. It offers some highly relevant, albeit tough to swallow, information for people in spiritual culture.
I was also given a bunch of Martin’s art work to play with in the video. Although my video editing skills are amateur at best, his art is fresh. Enjoy the journey.

The somewhat painful emergence out of the the “Just Say No” fallacy of the Nancy Reagan DARE moment is underway at the cutting edge of festival and nightlife culture. In it’s place, Harm Reduction has come to the forefront as the next wave of drug education. But more than just drug education, Harm Reduction is a public health philosophy that basically says “people are gonna do risky things, might as well give them real, evidence based information to at least make informed choices, so as to minimize risk”.
On this episode of ATTMind Radio, we feature Paul Brooks. He is a journalist and founding member of Calgary Party Safe, a not-for-profit harm reduction organization. He is also manager of a popular downtown club in Calgary, Alberta, Communication Director for Bass Coast Music Festival, and a super great guy. He is on the show to explore not only the philosophy and evolution of harm reduction, but some practical information about staying safe when sampling psychoactives.
