Dennis McKenna on The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss


The renowned ethnopharmacologist and research pharmacognosist, Dennis McKenna, wrote "The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss: My Life with Terence McKenna," ten years ago. That book is being republished, with a new afterword by Dennis, this month, so it seemed the right moment to talk about their relationship and respective evolutions, the experiences, people, literature and ideas that shaped them, and why Dennis regards the book that he and Terence co-authored in the mid-1970s, Magic Mushroom Grower’s Guide, as perhaps their most significant accomplishment.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

299. Psychedelic Science | Dr. Dennis McKenna

The Jordan B. Peterson Podcast

Dr. Peterson's extensive catalog is available now on DailyWire+: https://utm.io/ueSXh Dr. Jordan B. Peterson and Dr. Dennis McKenna discuss the science behind psychedelics, the entities found through the looking glass, the current pharmaceutical approach to long life, and why it needs to change. Dr. Dennis McKenna is an American ethnopharmacologist, lecturer and author. He is a founding board member and the director of ethnopharmacology at the Heffter Research Institute, a non-profit exploring the therapeutic uses of psychedelic medicines. McKenna received his masters in botany at the University of Hawaii in 1979, followed by his doctorate in the same field at the University of British Columbia in 1984. Dennis is the brother of Terrence McKenna, a cultural figure and proponent for the exploration of psychedelics. Together they co-authored The Invisible Landscape. Much later Dennis would write a memoir, Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss,  detailing he and his brothers exploits in the field. Today, Dennis tours and lectures, while also running the McKenna Academy of Natural Philosophy, which seeks to uncover the mysteries of consciousness held within the realm of botany and pharmacology. —Links— McKenna Academy: https://mckenna.academy The Experiment at La Chorrera https://mckenna.academy/events?id=32 ESPD55 Livestream Symposium ESPD55.com Those interested in donations may contact connect@mckenna.academy - Sponsors - Birch Gold - Text "JORDAN" to 989898 for your no-cost, no-obligation, FREE information kit Elysium Health - Save 25% off Basis monthly subscriptions with code JBP25: https://trybasis.com/Jordan Shopify - Get a FREE 14-day trial with full access to Shopify's entire suite of features: https://shopify.com/jbp - Chapters - (0:00) Coming up(0:40) intro(2:33) Dr. Dennis McKenna now(6:47) What is ethnopharmacology?(12:45) Ayahuasca(26:02) Hierarchy of concepts(30:00) The Reality Hallucination(43:50) Breaking down hyper reality(49:30) Commonalities of entities(55:50) The intrinsic form of personality(1:00:15) Ritual, bad shamans(1:02:58) Carl Rogers, voluntary exposure(1:09:15) Roland Griffiths, the flaw in how medicine is practiced(1:12:05) Impending mortality(1:24:45) Dr. McKenna’s future plans(1:26:19) Looking back at a life long career // SUPPORT THIS CHANNEL //Newsletter: https://mailchi.mp/jordanbpeterson.com/youtubesignupDonations: https://jordanbpeterson.com/donate // COURSES //Discovering Personality: https://jordanbpeterson.com/personalitySelf Authoring Suite: https://selfauthoring.comUnderstand Myself (personality test): https://understandmyself.com // BOOKS //Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life: https://jordanbpeterson.com/Beyond-Order12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos: https://jordanbpeterson.com/12-rules-for-lifeMaps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief: https://jordanbpeterson.com/maps-of-meaning // LINKS //Website: https://jordanbpeterson.comEvents: https://jordanbpeterson.com/eventsBlog: https://jordanbpeterson.com/blogPodcast: https://jordanbpeterson.com/podcast // SOCIAL //Twitter: https://twitter.com/jordanbpetersonInstagram: https://instagram.com/jordan.b.petersonFacebook: https://facebook.com/drjordanpetersonTelegram: https://t.me/DrJordanPetersonAll socials: https://linktr.ee/drjordanbpeterson #JordanPeterson #JordanBPeterson #DrJordanPeterson #DrJordanBPeterson #DailyWirePlus #podcast #DennisMcKenna

83: Dennis McKenna – Religion, Medicine, Science, & The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss.

The Sacred Speaks

Conversation starts @ 7:26This conversation begins with a discussion of the banisteriopsis vine (ayahuasca) featured in the background. We explore Dr. McKenna’s first adventure down to South America to study and explore psychedelics used in the Amazonian medico-religious process. This endeavor would eventually connect him with several elder medicine men who created mixtures for Dennis to study – “We want to learn everything that you know about ayahuasca.” We discuss how the indigenous folks of the Amazon responded to the scientists who sought to investigate their sacramental plant, the rubber boom of the early 20th century, lost aspects of the Amazonian ethnomedical tradition, the hard problem of consciousness, the limitations of reductionism, the value of science, limitations of science, an overview of the journey to La Chorrera, building the temple for “spiritual” experience, or ecstatic/mystical experience, the body as apothecary, theories of consciousness, the molecule and the “trip,” scientific bias of the west, the Default Mode Network, the value of psychedelics to the scientific community, and the McKenna Academy. Bio: Dennis McKenna is an American ethnopharmacologist, research pharmacognosist, lecturer and author. He is a founding board member and the director of ethnopharmacology at the Heffter Research Institute, a non-profit organization concerned with the investigation of the potential therapeutic uses of psychedelic medicines. Dennis also serves on the Advisory Board of the American Botanical Council; as Founder and Executive Director for the Institute for Natural Products Research; as an Independent Research Consultant to the Phytomedicine and Nutraceutical Industry; was formerly on the Editorial Board of Phytomedicine, International Journal of Phytotherapy and Phytopharmacology; and is an adjunct professor in the Center for Spirituality and Healing at the University of Minnesota. In that role, he has taught graduate courses in Botanical Medicines and Ethnopharmacology and an inter-session ‘intensive’ in Hawaii each January called Plants in Human Affairs. He has also taught summer field courses in Ecuador for the University of Arizona, and courses in the Amazon and Andes for Pharmacy doctoral students at the University of Kansas and the Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. Dr. McKenna received his Master’s Degree in Botany from the University of Hawaii in 1979, his Ph.D. in Botanical Sciences from the University of British Columbia in 1984, and continued into post-doctoral research fellowships in the Laboratory of Clinical Pharmacology, National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), and in the Department of Neurology, Stanford University School of Medicine. His research has included the pharmacology, botany, and chemistry of ayahuasca and oo-koo-hé. He has also conducted extensive ethnobotanical fieldwork in the Peruvian, Colombian, and Brazilian Amazon. Since 2019, he has been working with colleagues to manifest a long-term dream: the McKenna Academy of Natural Philosophy, a non-profit organization founded in the spirit of the ancient Mystery Schools and dedicated to the study of plant medicines, consciousness, intelligence in nature, preservation of indigenous knowledge and a re-visioning of humanity's relationship with Nature. Dr. McKenna is author or co-author of 6 books and over 50 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals.https://mckenna.academyWebsite for The Sacred Speaks: http://www.thesacredspeaks.comWATCH:YouTube for The Sacred Speakshttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOAuksnpfht1udHWUVEO7RgInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/thesacredspeaks/@thesacredspeaksTwitter: https://twitter.com/thesacredspeaksFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/thesacredspeaks/Brought to you by: https://www.thecenterforhas.comTheme music provided by:http://www.modernnationsmusic.com

(#015) Dr. Dennis McKenna — The Psychedelic Pioneer. Wake-Up Call From 500+ Ayahuasca Sessions

Just Tap In with Emilio Ortiz

The psychedelic researcher and visionary, Dennis McKenna, joins us for an in-depth exploration of plant medicine and a wake-up call from nature to humanity. He has researched ethnopharmacology for over 40 years and performed extensive ethnobotanical fieldwork in the Peruvian, Colombian, and Brazilian Amazon. Dennis is a founding board member of the Heffter Research Institute and was a key investigator on the Hoasca Project, the first biomedical investigation of ayahuasca.  He is the younger brother of the late Terence McKenna, known as a psychedelic guru and mystic.  Together, the brothers changed the narrative around the psychedelic experience and its role in culture and society. In 2018, he birthed the McKenna Academy of Natural Philosophy whose mission is to be a catalyst for the transformation of global consciousness, through educational experiences that interweave our collective intelligence, science, and ancestral wisdom. He has authored or co-authored over 50 peer-reviewed scientific papers and written books, including “The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss: My Life with Terence McKenna”, and co-author of “The Invisible Landscape” with his brother Terence. His publications have appeared in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, European Journal of Pharmacology, Brain Research, Journal of Neuroscience, Journal of Neurochemistry, Economic Botany, Alternative and Complementary Therapies, and elsewhere. Dr. McKenna and two colleagues are co-authors of a widely recognized reference work on herbal medicines, titled “Botanical Medicines: the Desk Reference for Major Herbal Supplements”. During the early 1970s McKenna developed a technique for cultivating psilocybin mushrooms and, in collaboration with his brother Terence, published a small book entitled “Psilocybin – Magic Mushroom Grower’s Guide” under the pseudonyms O.N. Oeric and O.T. Oss. This simple and reliable method for cultivating psilocybin mushrooms at home placed the visionary realms of psilocybin within reach of millions. Dennis McKenna has also joined other thought-leaders and podcasts for interviews including — Tim Ferriss, Joe Rogan, and Brian Rose. You can check out an appearance of Dennis McKenna on "Reconnect," a documentary filmed by London Real.  0:00 - Dennis McKenna Intro 4:45 - Dennis’ Beginning Curiosity Into Psychedelics 8:10 - Patterns From Over 500 Ayahuasca Journeys 11:45 - Wake Up: The Plants Are Speaking To Us 19:45 - Terrence McKenna & Mushrooms As Extraterrestrials 26:55 - Stoned Ape Theory + The Matrix 40:15 - Morality of Using Psychedelics 50:15 - Become A Wiser Species 59:05 - Dennis’ Sense of Self & Ego 1:05:00 - Final Message to Future Generations Guest: Dennis McKenna, Ethnopharmocologist  McKenna Academy  Instagram  Twitter Dennis McKenna's Books  Host: Emilio Ortiz Instagram | https://bit.ly/35fkcJx Twitter | https://bit.ly/35hMMda TikTok | https://bit.ly/3lKjs3W Watch Video Interviews on YouTube | https://www.youtube.com/emilioortiz Special Offerings to Support the Show: ✦ Receive 15% off any purchase from Ra Optics, the world's best blue-light-blocking glasses.

[07:39]Why is it that psychoactive drugs don’t always work — even in people who usually feel their effects — and what keeps us from finding out through controlled studies? [13:51]As much as Dennis has experimented with adding and subtracting ingredients to various psychoactive admixtures, he’s come to believe it’s best to avoid combinations if possible. There are often alternative ways to dial the effects of these substances up or down as desired. [21:43]Why would we have cannabinoid, opiate, and other molecular receptors in our brains unless we’re designed to consume these substances from external sources? [29:45]Tales of terror from the world of psilocybin cicadas, cordyceps zombies, and toxoplasmic rodents. [36:34]Dennis shares his thoughts on psychedelics as a potential treatment for dyslexia and other language-based disorders. [42:20]What happened to Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell after having his savikalpa samadhi experience — a mystic glimpse beyond the self into the true nature of things? Does Dennis believe current psychedelic pioneers are misguided in downplaying the mystical experiences certain compounds bring out in people? [50:18]For anyone curious about Albert Hofmann’s discovery of LSD, Dennis recommends the graphic novel Bicycle Day by Brian Blomerth. [53:48]My recommended resources for learning more about the perceptual phenomenon of synesthesia. [54:58]What ESPD 55 entails: its history, its itinerary, and how you can participate even if you can’t physically make it to the conference in the UK from May 23rd to the 26th. [56:51]How does Dennis relate to mortality and the inevitability of death? [1:08:54]What is BioGnosis? [1:11:56]How does Dennis feel about synthetic substitutes for psychedelic compounds that have been traditionally harvested from natural — and often endangered — sources? What adaptations might groups who see these plants as sacred have to make to ensure that some of them don’t go extinct? [1:14:16]Most communities of any size eventually have to deal with in-fighting and power grabs from a certain element, and the psychedelic community is no exception. Can Dennis imagine any solutions to this unfortunate reality? [1:25:31]What would Dennis choose if he could only partake of three psychoactive substances for the rest of his life? [1:35:02]The pros and cons of cannabis consumption and its methods of delivery, and how modern strains can induce experiences akin to psychedelics. [1:36:38]What we can expect from an upcoming second edition of The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss, The BioGnosis Project (and its first associated documentary (to be screened at ESPD 55), virtualizing the Herbarium in Iquitos, and other parting thoughts.
