    The Role of Entheogens in Awakening and Consciousness

    This conversation explores the role of entheogens in inducing consciousness and awakening. Entheogens are psychoactive substances used in culturally sanctioned rituals to enhance visionary experiences. They are considered sacred sacraments in many spiritual traditions. The experience of using entheogens opens up the recesses of the mind and allows for deep insights and healing. It provides a context for compassionate understanding of oneself and others and taps into the collective consciousness. Entheogens also awaken the body and bring unresolved issues to consciousness for processing. They offer a profound reckoning and reintroduction to the true nature of reality.

Wow

Add this podcast to your rotation. Michael is a gifted interviewer. The conversations feel intentional, full of value and intimate. The most recent ep with Matthew Hussey was one for the books, absolutely phenomenal. I had a page of notes at the end. 1000% worth your time. Thank you for sharing, Michael!
