Alex’s journey has taken her from being an ER doctor in the pharmaceutical paradigm and studying Allopathic Medicine at Leeds School of Medicine to experiencing her own spiritual awakening with medicine plants like ayahuasca and the kambô frog. Alex studied at the International Association of Kambô Practitioners and is now a certified kambô practitioner. Here we talk about the healing power of the frog, the chemical constituents of the peptides, the usage of kambô with the Matses and indigenous tribes, and the evolving way the West is approaching shamanic medicines, including the integration of the energetic body. And in following the path of this medicine woman from the emergency ward to the emergence, we can see reflected the cultural journey of the West back to the true nature of medicina itself.

Joanna was the starseed psychedelic beloved of Timothy Leary from his escape from prison in 1972, where they met on the run in Afghanistan, throughout the four years of his re-imprisonment until 1977. His love letters to her have recently been returned to her possession, and her reading from them uncovers both a perennial love story and a historical treasure trove of data from those years. How did Tim's separation and imprisonment heighten his tantric appreciation for love itself? How did the psychedelic ideas of Exo-Psychology and the Eight-Circuit model of Consciousness he devised permeate his letters? How do we learn to love unconditionally, opening up to Source in all of us, and still find the Beloved to anchor in our temples? A deeply intimate satsung on the power of love from us, to you...

Join us for a fly on the wall conversation that bridges the worlds between psychedelia and policy, academia, medicine and religion, from 5-MeO-DMT to endogenous mystical states. What does it mean to worship in our modern, secular age? If entheogens trigger a divine impulse, how does that relate to faith? Can we cultivate the art of Divine Listening and a relationship with the Source within? Can we cure addictions by integrating the mind body and spirit? Joseph was the director of the Crossroads Ibogaine clinic, working to cure addictions, and here we explore healing and trauma release modalities, the vagus nerve, psychedelic therapy, and somatic intelligence. Can the disconnection of addiction be healed by the connection of the spiritual experience?

January 02, 2018 10:40 AM PST￼YOU can now support this podcast via BitCoin:1DqzQqRuYwApTyA6n3q6ff6hPwbfhmTHmy Experiential journalist Rak Razam hosts an extended version of the lecture he gave at the 2017 EGA conference in December, 2017. If EntheoGenesis is awakening to the Divine within, what do we do with IT then? Is the peak experience of divinity a seed to be integrated and/or a relationship to be nurtured? Is the current surge in interest in 5-MeO-DMT from synthetic and natural sources like the Bufo Alvarius toad just the latest stage of an entheogenic relationship flowering in human consciousness? What are the other steps in anchoring this God consciousness? Beyond the toad, can we entrain our endogenous capacity to anchor Source, and what would this mean? For more info see www.rakrazam.com .

With Shannon Kempster, Maya Waken, Dean Jefferys, Dan Schreiber and Jewelli Deva. What is the connection between the Mexican Sonoran desert toad and the legendary yage of Amazonian tribes? What role does bufotenine play in the 5-MeO neurochemical cocktail in plants and toads? Unified field. Source consciousness. Home: what celestial cartography do these catalysts reveal? Is this the return of DreaMTime consciousness? Are there any significant differences between synthetic and organic 5-MeO, or plant-based and toad-based 5-MeO? Do repeated doses of 5-MeO make one more sensitive to the medicine and to the ceremony of life itself? How do we keep open the endogenous pathways that the medicine can reveal? Recorded and shared by Kent Holloway.

How can we be of service to the shamanic medicines and be sustainable as facilitators ourselves? What training and best practices are needed as a foundation amongst the diversity of shamanic medicines and styles? How do we integrate indigenous practice and customize it for modern audiences and needs without appropriation? What are the dangers of western poly-entheogenic use? Is there a stepping stone pattern to be guided in with what entheogens we work with on the deepening path of initiation? Are more women being called forth to serve medicine as ‘midwives’ to the Divine and how does that balance out the sacred masculine? As we re-sensitize to ourselves and nature and our place in the grand unfolding, what does it mean to be a Sacred Human?

Do our minds negate our hearts as a malware coping mechanism for the modern world? How can we feel safe?Experiential journalist Rak Razam chats with Natasha English, a Nondual / Transpersonal Point Therapist about trauma, PTSD, entheogenic healing and ‘spiritual bypassing’ or the masking of our wounds with spirituality. Can entheogens open up our armoring and reveal our full potential–and what are the dangers? Natasha herself experienced a terrifying 5-MeO-DMT experience that took her to the hell realms and from that primal wounding she has found the courage to shine in her fullness and listen to her heart.

August 01, 2017 11:27 AM PDTExperiential journalist Rak Razam chats with Caitlin Thompson, the Aware Project San Diego liaison and founder of EntheoZen.com and a wellness spokesperson about psychedelics as a novel approach to immune conditions. What is the microbiology of the nervous system and how do neurotransmitters send information? Caitlin shares her own journey to wellness and her understanding of the science of psychedelics and how it relates to our own health and wellbeing. Clinical psychedelic research focuses on EEG, MRI and the mind, but what role do tryptamines play in the endogenous consciousness of the mind, body and soul? Do tryptamines like n,n,DMT and 5-MeO-DMT act as psychedelic immunomodulators? Are auto-immune conditions where the body attacks itself a metaphor for the way humans are poisoning the earth? Are humans just a rogue microorganism in the Gaian biome? Science says we have three brains: stomach gut brain/ heart brain with neuronal cells and the mind/ brain. Do our microbiomes have a representation on the astral/energetic level that can be revealed by tryptamines? Does the micro biome receive the broadcast consciousness signal of Source that the ego of the brain filters out? Is the microbiome essentially psychedelic and also affected by our ingestion of psychedelics? And how does this relate to the Amazonian shamanic perspective?

These fellow filmmakers have been drawn in by their plant medicine experiences making documentaries to explain the worlds of the spirit and have both gone on to form NGOs to help facilitate the integration of shamanic medicines into the West. Ben studied audiovisual media in The Netherlands, and received his Masters degree with honors as a film director and editor for his documentary ‘Ibogaine-Rite of Passage’ (2004), which he directed and produced. He helped form ICEERS in 2009 as a philanthropic, tax-exempt non-profit organization dedicated to the integration of ayahuasca, iboga and other traditional plants as therapeutic tools in modern society, and the preservation of the indigenous cultures that have been using these plant species since antiquity.
