Entheogens, Society & Law w/ Daniel Waterman ~ ATTMind Radio Ep. 36

daniel_waterman-attmindOn today’s episode, I am happy to introduce, Daniel Waterman. He is a philosopher, artist, writer and Ayahuasca provider based in the Netherlands. He is also the author of Entheogens, Society & Law.

Daniel and I met up in the Netherlands to record this conversation in his living room. The recording taps into the conversation just as Daniel begins to speak about the implications of a major turning point in his journey with Ayahuasca just after 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001 .

Daniel carries the conversation in poignant and poetic forms from there as we touch on the larger context around his book Entheogens, Society & Law, death and rebirth, religious morals and ethics and their place in law, DMT entities and ‘Meaning’, E-Prime, and what it means to find relevant questions.

This is a beautiful journey with a very well-spoken and insightful man who has a lot to offer us. Enjoy.

The Curious Puzzle of ‘Psychedelic Integration’ w/ Jef Baker ~ ATTMind Radio Ep 34

Another episode of ATTMind Radio has come to fruit and I am happy to announce the guest is Jef Baker.

From his bio:

Jef is a Cultural Studies and Communications graduate from Southern Cross University. His thesis ‘A Thread in the Vine-The Deep Ecology of Contemporary Ayahuasca Discourse’ played an important role in his rediscovering the plant medicine path. Jef’s research interests are now centred on exploring the ritual aspects of the psychedelic experience and how entheogenic plants inform people’s notions of self, agency, identity and community in postmodernity. A particular focus is the way the integration process is critical in bringing about pragmatic change at the personal, cultural and social levels.

Jef and I initially met online and when I was blessed with the opportunity to be in Sydney, Australia to give a talk for the Sydney Spore, he and I met up for falafel and conversation. Starting with a discussion around the underlying themes and conflicts within the larger online Ayahuasca discourse, we quickly transition into discussing the somewhat elusive puzzle of what it means to ‘integrate’ one’s psychedelic experiences. In particular we discuss the role of community engagement and the difference between a change in perspective and a change in behaviour.
