Psychedelics in Unlocking the Unconscious: From Cancer to Addiction - Gabor Mate

Complex unconscious psychological stresses underlie and contribute to all chronic medical conditions, from cancer and addiction to depression and multiple sclerosis. Therapy that is assisted by psychedelics, in the right context and with the right support, can bring these dynamics to the surface and thus help a person liberate themselves from their influence. Special focus will be given to the speaker's experience in treating addictions and other stress-related conditions, both with aboriginal people and in non-indigenous contemporary healing circles. This work has been done under the guidance of indigenous Peruvian shamans and their Western apprentices.

QUE ES CREATIBI


Lo puedes llamar quedada, reunión de chiflados, asamblea, congregación, el nombre es lo de menos, a nosotros lo que nos importa es que el contenido lo pondremos entre todos, los ponentes seremos todos y cada uno de los asistentes, porque todos tenemos algo interesante que decir….

Creatibi es compartir , por lo que encontraremos un espacio donde poder conocer a los demás mientras profundizamos en aquello que nos apetece. En definitiva es un Open Space en el que se generaran energías productivas y sorpresas espontaneas de las personas que sientan un irrefrenable deseo de compartir su creatividad”.

ENCOD BULLETIN ON DRUG POLICIES IN EUROPE - Bulletin 115

ENCOD BULLETIN ON DRUG POLICIES IN EUROPE - Bulletin 115 | ayahuasca | Scoop.it

So what will a legalised drugs market look like? The experiments with regulation of cannabis in the United States, Uruguay and Spain have been underway long enough to make a first evaluation. And as we are still in a state of war, we must remain critical of all information sources whatever their source. We must consider that the main source of trustworthy information must be the people who are directly affected by drug policies, and not necessarily academics or politicians.

A brief history of psychedelic psychiatry | ayahuasca | Scoop.it
In the 1950s a group of pioneering psychiatrists showed that hallucinogenic drugs had therapeutic potential, but the research was halted as part of the backlash against the hippy counterculture.

Hechicerías y curanderías en la Lima del siglo XVII. Formas femeninas de control y acción social - Alejandra B. Osorio

Hechicerías y curanderías en la Lima del siglo XVII. Formas femeninas de control y acción social - Alejandra B. Osorio | ayahuasca | Scoop.it
Este trabajo examina las formas en que las mujeres de estratos populares de Lima colonial utilizaronla magia, la curandería y la brujería para controlar, tanto su sexualidad como las relaciones sociales asu alrededor. Nos hemos detenido también a analizar cuáles fueron esas prácticas culturales y susorígenes. El análisis de cómo estas mujeres enfrentaron sucesos de la vida cotidiana, tales como las normas sociales impuestas por la sociedad colonial, sus problemas amorosos, sexuales y de violencia conyugal, está basado en los testimonios contenidos en los juicios de extirpación de idolatrías llevados acabo en Lima durante el siglo XVII. Este análisis me permite, además, reconsiderarargumentos desarrollados en los años 1970 y 1980, específicamente por los trabajos pioneros deElinor Burkett ( 1978) e lrene Silverblatt (1987), que trataron de explicar y entender la condición de las mujeres -indígenas especialmente- bajo el régimen colonial.

Dr Robin Carhart-Harris is the first scientist in over 40 years to test LSD on humans - and you're next

Dr Robin Carhart-Harris is the first scientist in over 40 years to test LSD on humans - and you're next | ayahuasca | Scoop.it
On a hot evening in June, in a crowded room above a London pub, Dr Robin Carhart-Harris, a research associate in the Centre for Neuropsychopharma-cology at Imperial College, is giving a public talk about his work. He is having to make himself heard over the boozy commotion downstairs, where people are watching Chile put Spain out of the World Cup. But there is a slightly giddy atmosphere in the function room, too, because the doctor's area of research is as exciting as it is taboo: he is investigating the brain effects and potential therapeutic uses of psychedelic drugs.

How Kyle Kingsbury used ayahuasca to become a happier person and a worse fighter

How Kyle Kingsbury used ayahuasca to become a happier person and a worse fighter | ayahuasca | Scoop.it

"Kyle Kingsbury says the psychedelic drug ayahuasca helped him become a happier person, content with his life and place in the world. But did that come at the cost of his pro fighting career?"

Jerónimo M.M.'s insight:

Ayahuasca makes an UFC fighter give it up.  "You don’t have to fight angry, but you do have to have some anger inside you in order to really throw punches with aggression and really want to hurt someone else. I don’t have that anymore.”

Los curacas se convirtieron en los designados intermediarios entre los mundos de la casta conquistada y el de sus amos; A ellos, en igual forma que a la élite incaica, se les otorgó un status social colonial equivalente al de la nobleza europea. Enconsecuencia, estaban exentos de obligaciones tributarias y tenían el privilegio detener bienes privados. Sin embargo, estos privilegios fueron concedidos conobligaciones adjuntas. A cambio de los beneficios de la posición nobiliaria, seesperaba que ellos aseguraran el cumplimiento de las exigencias coloniales hechas alcampesinado. El curaca era responsable del cobro' del tributo y los impuestos, de la organización y la selección de trabajadores para las mitas coloniales, del cobro de los bienes y del salario debido al cura doctrinero, de los diezmos adeudados a la 'Iglesia Católica y de la construcción y mantenimiento de la iglesia del pueblo

Antonio Escohotado: “La cruzada contra las drogas acabará entre susurros” « Jot Down Cultural Magazine | ayahuasca | Scoop.it

"La guerra contra las drogas se terminó hace unos quince años. Eso se nota en la reducción del presupuesto de las diversas brigadas de estupefacientes de diferentes países. Se ha impuesto de forma más o menos explícita la política de reducción de daños en materia de drogas. La cruzada contra las brujas no se acabó con un decreto diciendo “nos hemos equivocado”, se acabó entre susurros. Y así es como se acabará la cruzada contra las drogas, entre susurros. Nunca se ha conseguido que una cruzada del tipo que fuere contra el librepensamiento, la homosexualidad, la brujería o las drogas terminase explícitamente."
