Join immersive journalist Rak Razam in a deep discussion withTara Rose: intuitive, investigative journalist, writer of the book the Dandelion Hunter and host of the YouTube Channel Tara Rose Sacred Medicine. In which they discuss Tara’s recent talk at the 2018 Exploring Psychedelics conference in Ashland: Cleansing the Ego with Entheogens. If psychoactives switch off the Default Mode Network, allowing us to open to the full spectrum of consciousness, what place does this leave the Ego? Is the ego a calcified trauma protection mechanism left behind after the fall and disconnection from Source? Are entheogens wooing us back from Ego to the We-go and the Collective Intelligence of the Unified Field? How can we work with the Ego to find right relationship? And when the peak is over, does the Ego come back stronger–and what can we do about this? Do we need Ego diets? Or more compassion? Tara explores her work with ayahuasca, kambo and other shamanic modalities in shedding light on the function and capacity of the ego and our deeper potential. Tara offers preparation and integration coaching and healing work for people who sit with sacred medicines.

Join immersive journalist Rak Razam and Hal Lucius Nation, the Chief Officiant of the Temple of Awakening Divinity, a non-profit religious organization that serves 5-MeO-DMT as its central sacrament. Together they paint a map of the current Entheogenic State of the Union from the Western medicalization stream to the indigenous shamanic world, for an up-to-date snapshot of the species awakening. Is the mainstream turning On? Is the media tuning In? Is the War on Consciousness One? Has the latest scientific studies on 5-MeO-DMT shown a neurogenetic potential that is customizing the nervous system to receive deeper Source signal? Is there a lineage all the way back to Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras instructing us how to activate our endogenous capacity to galactivate? Is Logos becoming Holos? Is LOVE All there Is? Join us at the World Bufo Alavrius Congress July 27-29th, Mexico City www.wbac.info We are Already One.

Experiential journalist Rak Razam delves deep in an intimate discussion with psychotherapist, Navigating Altered States practitioner and Tantric Sex coach Meriana Dinkova about the mind, body, and soul connection. What are the connections between the flesh and the spirit? Are we conditioned in the West to repress pleasure? Is ecstasis tapping into Source Consciousness both through sex and etheogens? Why does the shamanic paradigm traditionally separate the sexual energies? How can we harness peak tantric states to anchor a relationship with the Divine? And how does this relate to Godgasm states of ego release and the 5-MeO-DMT pathways?

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?
