Episode 169: the psychedelic gospels

My guest today is anthropologist, author and activist Jerry B. Brown. Together with his wife, psychotherapist Julie M. Brown, he co-wrote the book The Psychedelic Gospels: The Secret History of Hallucinogens in Christianity. This book reveals evidence of visionary plants in Christianity and in the life of Jesus found in medieval art and biblical scripture - hidden in plain sight for centuries. Check out the Gaia video program on Psychedelica, as well as the Facebook page connected with the book.

Episode 117: the importance of ritual

In this episode I am going to talk a bit about the importance of ritual when ingesting sacred plants. I have already written a bit about all this in the essay called The Importance of Ritual, although you will get a lot more information listening to this episode. I will also go into the medicine songs known as icaros, as well as a great deal on an encounter I had with God.
