Favoring ayahuasca over hospitals, Indigenous Kokama see COVID-19 deaths drop in the Amazon | Ayahuasca News | Scoop.it
Wary of Western medicine and of the prejudice and neglect they say they suffer at hospitals, Amazon's Kokama people decided to turn to traditional healing practices, administered by shamans. The Kokama were the first Indigenous group in Brazil to be infected with COVID-19, and to date there have been more than a thousand confirmed cases and 60 deaths within the community.

Jerónimo M.M.: After the psychedelic renaissance: Looking at a post prohibition world

How do we integrate psychedelics into our society and what are the foremost challenges and possible blind spots related to such integration? In his work, ayahuasca community activist and independent researcher Jerónimo M.M. focuses on such questions. In May 2021, we organized a webinar where he presented an excellent opportunity for discussing themes related to psychedelics in a post-prohibition world. Jerónimo has especially looked into traditions that utilize ayahuasca and thought about their future, but his thinking also applies to other psychedelics and traditionally used plants and the encounter between them and western cultures.

The recording includes both Jerónimo’s lecture and a section for audience questions.

Plus Three #14: Douglas Rushkoff on the Parallels Between Psychedelic and Digital Mainstreaming

On this episode we talk with Douglas Rushkoff, author, teacher, and host of the Team Human podcast. Rushkoff’s work explores how different technological environments change our relationship to narrative, money, power, and each other. His latest book, also called Team Human, calls for the retrieval of human autonomy in a digital age. Rushkoff is also no stranger to the psychedelic scene having collaborated with Timothy Leary, Robert Anton Wilson, Terence McKenna, Ralph Metzner, Mark Pesce, and Erik Davis.

We discuss some of the parallels between digital and psychedelic mainstreaming, the mental health epidemic as an externality of capitalism, and placing our trust capitalist cures. Will COVID-19 be to psychedelics as 9/11 was to surveillance capitalism? September 11th became the excuse to implement a surveillance state and surrender digital technologies to corporations. Will we see psychedelic medicines become the go-to recovery option for COVID-related mental health fallout? We also explore what a true psychedelic renaissance might look like.
