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.

Todo lo que pensamos sobre las drogas está equivocado: la verdad que se nos oculta. Noticias de Alma, Corazón, Vida

Todo lo que pensamos sobre las drogas está equivocado: la verdad que se nos oculta. Noticias de Alma, Corazón, Vida | ayahuasca | Scoop.it
Por todo el mundo, los Gobiernos están retirándose de la prohibición poco a poco. Sólo hay dos países que se están moviendo en la dirección opuesta: la Rusia de Putin y la España de Rajoy. No es una gran compañía. Merece la pena recordar que Franklin Roosevelt terminó con la prohibición de alcohol en parte porque era un desastre pero sobre todo porque había una depresión económica y necesitaba los impuestos. Si España está buscando claramente nuevas formas de recaudación (el nuestro lo está haciendo claramente), creo que merece la pena echarle un vistazo. Hay un pueblo en España que quería producir cannabis para uno de los clubes más grandes, pero fueron detenidos por la policía.

Friendship and Awakening

Friendship and Awakening | ayahuasca | Scoop.it

Friendship is the basis of political activity.

I found this very illuminating as I can see that the work we are doing in the Peruvian Amazon can be seen as founded on friendship, though we generally use a less personal and more organizational word like ‘partnership’ to describe the principles embodied in our work.

Entheogens & the Bible

In paradisiacal gardens, in incense and the anointing oil that was put upon priests, kings and messiahs, there are plenty of positive references to psychoactive drugs in the Bible. The way they were combined synergistically suggests that the ancient Hebrews were very adept at working with resins to facilitate powerful psychedelic experiences, including in the most point in the Israelite world, the Holy of Holies in the Tabernacle.
