    #286 — The Paradox of Psychedelics

    #286 — The Paradox of Psychedelics

    In this episode of the podcast, Sam Harris shares an audio essay exploring how psychedelics are, for many, the only way to glimpse "the vast firmament beyond the prison walls” of the “conceptual mind”—and often serve as the gateway to meditation. He also discusses how the very profundity of the psychedelic experience can distract us from the true purpose of mindfulness—the recognition that consciousness is always already free, in every moment. Also included are highlights from the Waking Up app created for a recent Tim Ferriss podcast.

Afghanernas prinsessa ,

Thoughtful insight

Sam has always wanted to be precise when defining the topics and steering the conversation, trend continues.

Nik_Stalvind ,

Still OK. Used to be excellent.

The increasingly politically correct Sam Harris is still relevant and worth listening to, most of the time. Five years ago I would have given this podcast five stars without a doubt.

BjornMis ,

Generally very good.

He’s brave and open and willing to pursue various topics. Sam does have TDS though, thinking and regularly stating that Trump is an existential threat. So take it all with a grain of salt because of this blind spot and extremist viewpoint.
