If a psychedelic / psilocybin ego death does not necessarily help us with our fear of dying, why does the research suggest that it does?
Comparing LSD to psilocybin is incredibly common, and understandably so. The subjective effects of these two molecules are remarkably similar in some ways, but they are also vastly different in many other ways.
How does attachment theory factor into dosing psilocybin mushrooms? And, is ‘five dried grams in silent darkness’ safe? I take the long road around to explore…
Paul Austin is also a microdosing expert and microdosing coach. He joins us on the show to talk all things microdosing, as well as the role microdosing will play in the integration of psychedelics into the modern world through increasing psychedelic literacy.
James W. Jesso is a public speaker and author who is a world-leading psychedelic expert. In our interview with James, we discuss the ‘shadow side,’ and how psilocybin mushrooms could help us come into contact with it. James believes that encountering our deepest fears and unknowns will allow us to be more in control of our lives.
While Terence McKenna was selling out speaking events, Dennis McKenna was publishing peer-reviewed research papers. Terence sadly died in 2000, Dennis is still with us, and is in fact, with us directly on this episode of Adventures Through The Mind.
I have been researching, writing, and speaking on psychedelics for almost a decade now. There are a few books that stand out for me…
I ate the wild psilocybin mushrooms of San Jose del Pacifico in Mexico back in the summer of 2017. I went down there to trip with Kilindi Iyi, Dr Gerry, and Julian Palmer. This report is the meat of what I encounter during my trip.
Here are my thoughts on how I build a personally meaningful Ceremony with Psilocybin, Magic Mushrooms without cultural appropriation.
I shot this little video for an event called The Summer Of Love 3.0. They wanted me to do a well-wishes and send off to a group of people about to dose Syrian Rue and Psilocybin Truffles. I had a 3 min time limit and decided to talk about Courage, Presence, and Freedom.
“There’s no such thing as a bad trip” is a concept that is rising in popularity among experienced drug users. However, I don’t subscribe to this concept. To me, there is such a thing as a bad trip and it is determined by how we choose to deal with an uncomfortable experience.
This one goes into a pretty dark place at some points, including one of my first public explorations of my drug-induced psychosis episode back in 2009 and both of our dark encounters with ayahuasca. Plus a bunch of fun stuff too 😉
I knew this was going to be an opportunity of a lifetime, not only for myself but for you as well! There was a unique dynamic between us that morning and I knew I wanted to catch it for you. Enjoy!
Kilindi Iyi has come along and dismantled the concept of five dried grams as an apex of psilocybin intensity with his regular use of 30+ dried grams of psilocybin mushrooms…. 30 dried grams of psilocybin mushrooms, an ultra-high dose psilocybin experience.
This video is sharing my perspectives and experiences between microdosing magic mushrooms (psilocybin) and LSD and the differences in what they have offered me.
Outlining a modern framework for spirituality and where psychedelics fit as agents of spiritual development. (Lecture followed by Q&A)
This may be amongst, it not THE BEST lecture I have ever given on this topic. I am honored and excited to share it with you now.
As the technology of virtual reality continues to progress, it is important that we look beyond the uses gaming companies, Facebook, and Samsung will develop it for. What happens when the capacity to build a completely immersive and convince alternate reality lands in the hands of visionary artists and shamanic healers?
The True Light Of Darkness is a literary exploration of the turbulent struggles involved in entheogenic shadow-work. Focused on the author’s more disturbing encounters with the magic psilocybin mushroom, this book confronts the demons laying wait in the dark recesses of the psyche. This is its soundtrack.
