    #22 Dennis Mckenna: Societal delusions, Crooked Media, and the Immortality Key

    #22 Dennis Mckenna: Societal delusions, Crooked Media, and the Immortality Key

    For episode 22 of Business, Life, and Ayahuasca we are incredibly thankful to have on the godfather of psychedelics, Dennis Mckenna. Dennis Mckenna has been on the scene of the psychedelic movement since the 60s and is still vastly influential today. Dennis Mckenna along with his late brother Terrence Mckenna were a key factor in the introduction of psilocybin mushrooms in the United States. They are considered pioneers of western psychedelic culture and Dennis Mckenna continues to impact the culture through education and organizations such as his very own Mckenna Academy of Natural Philosophy. As always, this episode is brought to you by Soltara Healing Center.

Lounging Jaguar ,

Extremely well-done and inspiring podcast

Dan is an inspiring person in a myriad of ways, not just because he just launched one of the best new podcasts in recent memory. His honest and straightforward style as host, amazing selection of guests, and extremely important and relevant discussions might just be exactly what you need as we enter 2021 and beyond. I cannot recommend this show enough to anyone interested in psychedelics, inter-personal relationships, spirituality, and the brave new world that is arriving in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. A must listen.

Dan Cleland is as solid of a human being as they get. Resilient, hard-working, highly intelligent and with a love for nature, humanity, entrepreneurship and making the world a better place.

Listening in on the podcast is like getting a masterclass in entrepreneurship, life-optimization and is a true eye-opener and reminder of what the important things in life are.

The guests are very high calibre.

You literally become a better place by subscribing to this podcast.

Thank you, Dan, for sharing the wisdom, and the love.
