Ep022 - Deep State Psychedelics with Alex Tsakiris

This week Alex Tsakiris, host of the Skeptiko Podcast joins us to discuss psychedelics, social engineering, and the 'Deep State'. We get into the work of Joe Atwill, and his research regarding Gordon Wasson's CIA connections.

On Skeptiko, Alex interviews leading researchers and scientists looking into the different aspects of human consciousness; mainly near death experiences, parapsychology, and what Alex likes to call deeper spirituality. Last month, Alex was kind enough to have me on his show to chat about psychedelics, entheogens, and their intersection with this idea of deeper spirituality. During our conversation, Alex and I sort of glazed over this whole connection to the Deep State that continually pops up in the field of psychedelic research. Alex has since had Joe Atwill on the show to dive deeper into this concept of the Deep State and psychedelics, and my response to that follow-up episode is what inspired a lot of today's conversation.

Pre-Wasson literature discussing 'entheogens' or psychedelic substances:

“When thy soul shall be made drunk by the divine ambrosial nectar, then shall thy understanding be more clear than the noontide sun; – then, by thy strong and spiritualized intellectual eye, shalt thou see into the great treasury of Nature, and thou shalt praise God with thy whole heart.” (Barrett, Francis. “The Magus, or Celestial Inteligencer.” London, England, 1801. pg58)

Such passions as these we can induce by magical vapors, confections, perfumes, collyries, unctions, potions, lamps, lights, etc.; likewise by mirrors, images, enchantments, charms, sounds, and music; also by divers rites, observations, ceremonies, religion, etc.” [emphasis in original] (Barrett, Francis. “The Magus, or Celestial Inteligencer.” London, England, 1801. pg33)

It is admitted that the texts and nomencleture of Midieval materials on Hermeticism were cryptic and queer; but for that there are several explinations for the need for secrecy, including the need to keep laymen from endangering themselves with drugs they could not understand. (Mackey, Albert Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, 1873. Found in Newman, PD Alchemically Stoned p47)

We shall then know the secret of those spongy excresences which draw their unused surplus from trees, and surcharge themselves from their tinctures and sap; the mushrooms, truffles, the galls of trees...Then we shall no more laugh at Paracelsus. (Waite, Arthur The History of Magic by Eliphas Levi p185. Found in Newman, PD Alchemically Stoned p85)

Ep021 - Women and Entheogens with Kilindi Iyi

Returning to the show this week, our very first guest Kilindi Iyi joins Amanda to discuss everything from simulation theory to the environment. Of course, high dose psilocybin and hyperspacial djinn make their way into the conversations as well.  Kilindi was kind enough to join us in order to help promote this year's 2017 Women and Entheogens Conference, being held in honor of Kai Wingo. From the Detroit Psychedelics Community website:

"The Women and Entheogens Conference is the brainchild of Psychonaught Kai Wingo. Continuing Kai's legacy we will continue with her vision in 2017 and beyond. The Conference will push the envelope into new and novel ideas. This year's theme will be Psychedelics in Birth and Pregnancy from Conception through Life. We will explore the concept of utilizing entheogens for fertility, pregnancy and breastfeeding. Come be part of the new paradigm and continue our beloved Kai's work with Women and Entheogens.

Whether it's the mystical herb Iboga of the African bush, or Ayahuasca, the brew from Amazon of South America, or the magic of Psilocybin Mushrooms from pretty much anywhere, the Women & Entheogens Conference has you covered! Dealing with topics like LSD, MDMA, cannabis and the most powerful hallucinogen known, DMT, The 2017 Women & Entheogens Conference is sure to be heavy hitting like only Women & Entheogens can. Inviting artists, advocates, activist, healers and scholars from around the world to join our biannual event! Buy your ticket now and book your reservations early, space is limited."

The conference will be held this weekend Oct 13th-15th at the Unitarian Universalist Society, Cleveland, OH.

We have a particularly good episode for you all this week. We once more forgo our usual segments as Cody interviews beloved psychonaut, author and 32nd degree Master Mason, PD Newman. Just this last June, Newman released the absolutely wonderful book, Alchemically Stoned: The Psychedelic Secret of Freemasonry. Cody has been eagerly awaiting this conversation for some time, as Newman'a writings have influenced his work a great deal. Strap in and grab a notebook, because we dive deep into the history of psychedelic sacraments in Freemasonry.

Ep019 - Psychedelics Today with Kyle Buller

This week Cody is joined by the co-host of Psychedelics Today Podcast, Kyle Buller. Kyle and his talented partner Joe Moore, just launched a new online course Navigating Psychedelics, Lessons on Self-Care and Integration. We of course discuss psychedelics, as well as NDE's, holotropic breathwork, Stanislov Grof, shamanism, integration, and much, much more.

[From Psychedelics Today] Kyle’s interest in exploring non-ordinary states of consciousness began when he was 16-years-old, when he suffered a traumatic snowboarding accident. Waking up after having a near-death experience changed Kyle’s life. Since then, Kyle has earned his B.A. in Transpersonal Psychology, where he studied the healing potential of non-ordinary states of consciousness by exploring shamanism, plant medicine, Holotropic Breathwork, and the roots/benefits of psychedelic psychotherapy. Kyle has co-taught two college-level courses. One of the courses Kyle created as a capstone project, “Stanislav Grof’s Psychology of Extraordinary Experiences,” and the other one which he co-created, “The History of Psychedelics.”

Ep018 - Myco Deep Dive pt1 'Stametsian Philosophy'

A very happy, if slightly belated Mushroom Day! This week the gods had it in for us. Three major computer crashes, a few lost recordings, and several power outages. But, we cannot be stopped! Thank you for your patience.

This week we do things a little differently. As amateur mycologists, we join forces for the first episode in an ongoing series diving into the world of mycology. We cover the career of mycologist extraordinaire, Paul Stamets. We explore his unique method and regimen for microdosing psilocybin, and how his myco-philosophy can help save the world. We cover the varying strengths and preservation methods for different strains of hallucinogenic mushrooms, discuss the Psychedelic Science conference, and nerd out on the PSI-Vitamin presented there.

Particularly dense, but fun episode this week. Hope you all enjoy.

Ep017 - Everything Microdosing

No interview today. We jump right into a Feed Your Head segment on the very popular topic of Microdosing. Cody follows that up with an Epics and Entheogens segment covering some of the major godparents of psychedlia who had a major role in the development of various microdosing techniques. Keeping in line with the microdosing theme, Amanda finishes the show with a Psychedelic Feminism highlighting Amanda Fielding.

Ep016 - Psilly Review of Disjointed

For today’s episode, Amanda and Cody unite forces for an unorthodox episode, reviewing the new Netflix series Disjointed, starring Cathy Bates as an eccentric cannabis dispensary owner. This episode is just small teaser of the exclusive patreon content which will we will be releasing regularly in the future.

Late night recording + cannabis and tequila shots = very Psilly Rabbits. The explicit tag is there for a reason this week. If you are turned off by foul language, or find yourself easily offended, then this may not be the episode for you. You all usually get to hear us in a presentation mode, wherein we try to relay important information quickly and accurately. This episode is not that. Again, things got a little saucy whilst under influence of a unique blend of sleep deprivation, cannabis and tequila.

That all said, we hope you enjoy!

Taoist Lecture Series

Not Afraid - Audiobook

Poetry of Zen monk Ikkyo Sojun ( 1394–1481 )

*The Lady Mori was a blind minstrel with whom Ikkyo had a long standing relationship with*

Lady Mori's Gifted Touch:

My hand is no match for that of Mori. She is the unrivaled master of love play: When my jade stalk wilts, she can make it sprout! How we enjoy our intimate little circle.

I Hate Incense:

A master's handiwork cannot be measured But still priests wag their tongues explaining the "Way" and babbling about "Zen." This old monk has never cared for false piety And my nose wrinkles at the dark smell of incense before the Buddha.

Crazy Cloud speaks of Daito's unsurpassed brilliance But the clatter of royal carriages about the temple gates drowns him out And no one listens to tales of the Patriarch's long years Of hunger and homelessness beneath Gojo Bridge.

Monk Gantō practiced Zen while rowing a boat; Monk Chin gathered rushleaf to make sandals. I always praise the great worth of a single raincoat and straw hat - But who is there to appreciate their true elegance?

A Fisherman

Studying texts and stiff meditation can make you lose your Original Mind. A solitary tune by a fisherman, though, can be an invaluable treasure. Dusk rain on the river, the moon peeking in and out of the clouds; Elegant beyond words, he chants his songs night after night.

A Hermit Monk in the Mountains

I like it best when no one comes, Preferring fallen leaves and swirling flowers for company. Just an old Zen monk living like he should, A withered plum tree suddenly sprouting a hundred blossoms.

A Man's Root

Eight inches strong, it is my favorite thing; If I'm alone at night, I embrace it fully— A beautiful woman hasn't touched it for ages. Within my fundoshi there is an entire universe!

Three Poems on Love and Longing

Day and night I cannot keep you out of my thoughts; In the darkness, on an empty bed, the longing deepens. I dream of us joining hands, exchanging words of love, But then the dawn bell shatters my reverie and rends my heart.

Women, lovely flowers that bloom and quickly fade; Flowery faces, in full flush, lovely as dreams. When flowers burst open they grow heavy with passion But once they fall, no one speaks of them again.

Even if I were a god or a Buddha you'd be on my mind. I sit beneath the lamp, a skinny monk chanting love songs. The fierce autumn wind nearly bowls me over And my heart is choked with thick clouds.

Farewell, Lady Mori

Ten years ago beneath the blossoms we began a fragrant alliance. Each stage was a delight, full of endless passion. How poignant, never again to pillow my head on her lap. Making sweet love together, we vowed to be together always.

Ep011 - Psychedelic Mormons pt2 with Bryce Blakenagel

This week, Cody finishes out the conversation started last week with Bryce Blakenagel of the Naked Mormonism Podcast. Cody and Bryce read and dissect a research paper they've been working on, exploring evidence of psychedelic/entheogenic/sacramental drug use by the early Mormon church. Both episodes are quite lengthy, so we forgo our new segments and just dive DEEP into this groundbreaking new interpretation of Mormon history. This conversation is also posted on the Naked Mormonism Podcast as a combined podcast. Thank you to Bryce for taking care of the editing.

Cody and Bryce will be presenting this hypothesis at the 2017 Sunstone Symposium in Salt Lake City Utah, this weekend on July the 29th. Please join us in Salt Lake City should you find yourself in the area.
