050: Entheogen in Quarantine – Spring 2020 Check-in from Joe, Brad, and Kevin
Hi everyone, we’re still here, we’re still producing Entheogen, and we’re looking forward to producing more! How are you doing? Let us know how you are managing in the “new normal” and what you want to hear about in future episodes of Entheogen.
In this episode, we discuss the current state of affairs with much of the world in quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and we try to stay positive.
Note that we recorded this back at the end of March 2020, and while things felt like they were moving quickly then, and the situation continues to evolve, the sentiment is fairly similar now as we finally post this episode. We’re staying positive and strong and hope you all are too.
Thanks for listening!

047: Stealing Fire, Part 3
Part Three: The Road to Eleusis
Chapter 8 - Catch a Fire
Chapter 9 - Burning Down the House
Chapter 10 - Hedonic Engineering
Burning Man: it’s a unique thing, and hopefully Donald Trump doesn’t know it exists
How important is Burning Man after the event is over?
For the individual, it’s akin to the idea of an ayahuasca ceremony where people often say, “the real work is after the ceremony.” Integration of the inspiration is the “work”.
What about for the community or society at large? Burners without Borders, Black Rock Solar, and other indirect influences.
Because Burning Man is so inaccessible and inhospitable, attendance requires effort, planning, and intention, which fosters a grateful and positive community.
