Human beings have been altering their consciousness since the beginning of recorded history, be it with caffeine, alcohol, and tobacco, or psychedelics such as marijuana, psilocybin mushrooms, or recent chemicals like LSD. Come and listen to my real life tales of peering through the "doors of perception." We will delve into the insights and wisdom gleaned from the experience as well as the dangers and hard lessons.

    020 Holistic Healing

    I'm joined by my friend Alexander Sharone to discuss health, nutrition, and healing through holistic means. We discuss the ancient Indian medical system of ayurveda and the importance of catering an approach to the individual, rather than making broad brush strokes and generalizations about health. Towards the end, we talk about kambo, the poisonous tree frog from the Amazon that has found recent popularity for its cleansing properties.The podcast is free to listen but not free to produce!

    019 Brotherhood and Camaraderie

    019 Brotherhood and Camaraderie

    This is a conversation with two friends from my college fraternity about how men's groups can be a supportive force in the world - especially if they operate under a code of ethics. The first line of our mission statement is "Our goal is to build better men." We talk about our experiences in leadership positions, how we taught our members to respect women, and yes, our party experiences as well. Towards the end we talk psychedelics and have a potent discussion on American politics.Intro music by Chris Hallhttps://www.chrishall-music.com

    017 Let's Talk About Death!

    017 Let's Talk About Death!

    Isn't it weird that we're all going to die and yet nobody talks about it? What lies on the other side is one of the greatest mysteries that we will all have to face and that uncertainty is very uncomfortable for some. Join me and my guest Sarah Makota as we talk about the transition out of the world of the living and how to process grief and sadness over loved ones who have departed. We also take a look at different cultural views on death and discuss the Tibetan Book of Living and Dying.

    016 Psychology and Psychedelics

    016 Psychology and Psychedelics

    I am joined today by clinical psychologist Dr. Loi Medvin to discuss American culture and society in the context of mental health. In particular, we discuss some hot button issues like masculine/feminine dynamics and a sense of separation that many of us are feeling these days. In the last half of the episode, I ask Dr. Loi about her experiences with psychedelic plants and we both tell tales of unusual and non-ordinary states of consciousness and perception.

    015 Ayahuasca and the Master Plants

    015 Ayahuasca and the Master Plants

    We're back to one of my favorite topics - Ayahuasca. My guest today is Ayah Buonaugurio and we discussed her studies with ayahuasca and the "master plants" during her periods of shamanic apprenticeship. We talk about the processes one can undergo during shamanic ceremonies and vision quests and how to find the courage to do deep inner work, as well as what to do if you feel scared or overwhelmed in the middle of a psychedelic journey. The medicine path is not easy! We go into depth about what it really takes.
    "Ayah is a professional yoga teacher, dancer, Thai massage therapist, legally ordained spiritual minister, as well as women's health advocate and life coach in the field of womb wellness.
    She has been nurturing relationships in female communities around the globe. Traveling internationally, she has projects in Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Peru, and Colombia, exchanging skills and sharing sacred dances, water prayers, sharing womb wisdom arts, and vitality practices."
