This guy thinks too highly of himself for me to listen to. He rips on Terence McKenna as though he is some expert who has figured everything out and Terence was wrong. There is no right or wrong here because no one knows. I’ve seen the elves and long before I heard of Terence McKenna. When it comes to dmt I don’t want to listen to something this pretentious.

Podcast cover
Read more
with Martin Ball, Ph.D A special episode of In A Perfect World featuring a lecture by author and podcaster of the Entheogenic Evolution, Martin Ball Ph.D, conducted at Burning Man 2009. In which Martin expouses at length about issues from his recently released book, "Being Human: An Entheological Guide to GOD, Evolution, and the Fractal Energetic Nature of Reality", aka the world's most radical and provocative book! Martin discusses "infinity loops", the fractal nature of reality, the consciousness behind the evolutionary drive across history... and crystalline dimethyltryptamine... What role does DMT play in making us self-aware, and how has the evolutionary drive created this crystalline catalyst to dress higher dimensional consciousness in matter forms? Is DMT an ingression of the Godhead, and what role does it and altered consciousness play in the history of religion? Let Martin Ball rap lyrical – and tell you his take on the DMT elves...

Experiential journalist Rak Razam delves deep in an intimate discussion with psychotherapist, Navigating Altered States practitioner and Tantric Sex coach Meriana Dinkova about the mind, body, and soul connection. What are the connections between the flesh and the spirit? Are we conditioned in the West to repress pleasure? Is ecstasis tapping into Source Consciousness both through sex and etheogens? Why does the shamanic paradigm traditionally separate the sexual energies? How can we harness peak tantric states to anchor a relationship with the Divine? And how does this relate to Godgasm states of ego release and the 5-MeO-DMT pathways?

Podcast cover

Join experiential journalist Rak Razam and author, visionary artist, musician, podcaster and entheogenic explorer Martin Ball, Ph.D., as they engage in a far-reaching discussion about entheogens, DMT, “radical nonduality” and the Mind of GOD. Ball is one of the pre-eminent experts on 5-MeO-DMT, having written about it in his book Being Human, and other books like Being Infinite. Sacred icons like Terence McKenna, the shamanic paradigm, entities and the projections of the ego are dissected… Should we evolve the ego, not eliminate it, in altered states? What is Mirrored Bilateral Symmetry and how does tryptamine activation express itself in this symmetry in our body? Is this the origin of yogic mudras and asanas? Do fractals point to a language of the Divine? Is God lonely? Listen to this rare meeting of minds as Razam and Ball compare experiential field notes on their 5-MeO-DMT journeys and discuss Ball's theory of The "Entheological Paradigm," a Grand Unified Theory of all of reality from God to the direct experience of each human being. For more info: www.martinball.net/.

Rank #5: 75: A Revolution in Consciousness

Podcast cover
Read more
Art: Beau Deeley Experiential journalist Rak Razam talks with journalist and filmmaker Charles Shaw (the Exile Nation) about the consciousness revolution and the value of the psychedelic and shamanic experience in today's culture–on the point of global collapse. The history of the counterculture has been interwoven with not just that of the mainstream, but of black ops like MK-Ultra detouring and shaping the cultural history. From claims of Gordon Wasson's involvement with the elites and CIA to the use of LSD as a soma for the anti-war movement, are things that different with today's 'conscious festival culture'? Has the revolutionary act of altered states been commodified and controlled, and are we in a state of collective denial about the context and proper use of transcendence? Are neo-shamans and the New Age movement experiencing spiritual growth in a planetary battery farm? Can we explore the shadow within ourselves and the planetary shadow to collectively strategize ways forward–in the face of authoritarian control?

Rank #6: 123: Is the Microbiome Psychedelic?

Podcast cover
Read more
Experiential journalist Rak Razam chats with Caitlin Thompson, the Aware Project San Diego liaison and founder of EntheoZen.com and a wellness spokesperson about psychedelics as a novel approach to immune conditions. What is the microbiology of the nervous system and how do neurotransmitters send information? Caitlin shares her own journey to wellness and her understanding of the science of psychedelics and how it relates to our own health and wellbeing. Clinical psychedelic research focuses on EEG, MRI and the mind, but what role do tryptamines play in the endogenous consciousness of the mind, body and soul? Do tryptamines like n,n,DMT and 5-MeO-DMT act as psychedelic immunomodulators? Are auto-immune conditions where the body attacks itself a metaphor for the way humans are poisoning the earth? Are humans just a rogue microorganism in the Gaian biome? Science says we have three brains: stomach gut brain/ heart brain with neuronal cells and the mind/ brain. Do our microbiomes have a representation on the astral/energetic level that can be revealed by tryptamines? Does the micro biome receive the broadcast consciousness signal of Source that the ego of the brain filters out? Is the microbiome essentially psychedelic and also affected by our ingestion of psychedelics? And how does this relate to the Amazonian shamanic perspective?

Rank #7: 82: The Cannabis Shaman

Podcast cover
Read more
Experiential journalist Rak Razam interviews Hamilton Souther, one of the more prominent Western ayahuasca shamans and the founder of the Blue Morpho lodge outside Iquitos. Souther is also pioneering 'Cannabis Shamanism' using the songs and structure of his ayahuasca lineage with cannabis as the active sacrament. Cannabis has been revered as sacred by Hindus, Rastafarians and others, and with Souther's '420 Shamanism' movement there is the opportunity to resacralize the West's dominant recreational drug into something more, at the same time as marijuana legalisation sweeps America. If recreation and medical use of marijuana is becoming accepted, can spiritual use as well? Is this the start of a cannabis-shamanism revival, as the modality of shamanism itself crosses the tipping point into the mainstream? Souther shares his initiation story on the shamanic path, the difficulties of training as a Westerner and the secret bias towards many Westerners from local practitioners. How do we separate the indigenous wisdom from the dogma to apply shamanic training for the modern world? How do we become our own Western Shamans, not culturally repackaged copies? How far can we integrate and change the existing styles? For instance, as well as integrating icaros or healing sounds into Western dance music for consciousness expansion, Souther is about to sing his healing in ceremony, livestreaming across the internet in a 21st century 'distributed shamanism' modality. A provocative interview that will challenge your conceptions of what shamanism is, and how it can be integrated into the West… The 420 Cannabis Shamanism Movement launches April 20th, 2014. For more information, see: http://hamiltonsouther.org/

Rank #13: 93: Grace and Madness

Podcast cover
Read more
Ayahuasca tourism is on the rise, for better or worse. Join experiential journalist Rak Razam as he meets the kingmaker of Peruvian ayahuasca tourism, Alan Shoemaker, on the Boulevard in Iquitos. Shoemaker is an influential and sometimes controversial gringo in the global ayahausca scene, and author of the recent Ayahuasca Medicine: The Shamanic World of Amazonian Sacred Plant Healing. Once a curandero-in-training with various curanderos himself, he was part of the early 1990s wave of western gringos drawn to Peru and engaging with indigenous shamanism. He has successfully run businesses that revolve around ayahuasca shamanism, from ayahuasca tour groups to founding the annual Amazonian Shaman Conference. He has also founded Soga Del Alma–the Vine of the Soul church, been an exporter of medicinal plants, and been busted by the American authorities and forced to become a fugitive. And as the wave of ayahuasca tourism has increased almost exponentially in recent years, Shoemaker has played an active role, promoting his conference, shamans, and pathways to hungry western audiences. But what are the repercussions of ayahuasca tourism? What are the effects on indigenous culture, and how do westerners mediate the two worlds of Grace & Madness? Photo credit: Vance Gellert

A deeply personal post-ayahuasca sharing session in Peru, April 2015, with Rak Razam and Meriana Dinkova. After recent inoculations with the 5-MeO-DMT sacred medicine of the Bufo Alvarius toad, which induced a full spectrum remembrance of unity consciousness (i.e., GOD), Razam has noticed that the 5MEO circuit is consistently re-activated on other entheogens and indeed, is the ON Switch inside us all. This conversation was held directly after a second ayahuasca retreat session which triggered hours long immersion into the 5MEO light field, and a corresponding decompression of language and integration. It’s all words, dear listener. What is offered here is the act of languagizing itself, a sacred pillow-talk conversation about God as a unified field and the relationship of co-discovery between the Creator and the Created. So you recognize divinity: Now what? Before enlightenment: chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment: chop wood, carry water. What is the value of enlightenment? Photo: Ben Hewett. JOIN US!

Podcast cover

Experiential journalist Rak Razam interviews a legal psilocybin shamanic facilitator from the Netherlands, Olli, where the mushroom sclerotia ('Philosopher Stones') are a legal thing to possess and ingest. Olli has been working with mushrooms for over 20 years, and here we discuss potentiating them with a MAO-inhibitor, just like ayahausca does in its brew, and the benefits of 'psilohuacsa'. We examine the issues around both ayahuasca and its resource management and the advantages of locally-sourced entheogens in native settings, and the role of the magic mushroom as a global sacrament for healing and enlightenment. The role of neo-shamans like Olli in the West using entheogenic sacraments is explored, and the history of mushroom use in Europe. Moreover, Olli discusses the heart-opening, ego-dissolving experience of high dose psilocybin to bring us back into unity consciousness and the need for such remembrances in today's world.

Many cultures have had the idea of retreating to complete darkness to initiate an alchemical transformation of consciousness that brings about the spiritual light. PRISM is a spiritual seeker that attended a dark room ritual in Thailand and here with experiential journalist Rak Razam they discuss endogenous tryptamines, 5-MeO-DMT and the light within, and the process of the dark room ritual. The Tao says the dark turns into the light; science says that in darkness for sufficient time tryptophan in the brain will produce pinoline, 5-MeO-DMT and N,N, DMT. What is the process of a dark room ritual like? Could YOU stay ten days in total, unrelenting darkness, taking care of all your bodily functions? In these revolutionary times are we undergoing a planetary darkness whose object is a similar pressure to reveal our own light?

Podcast cover

Art: Adam Taylor Experiential journalist Rak Razam talks with DJ and "post-rave intentional dance community advocate and facilitator" Sobey Wing about conscious festival culture and the evolution of the tribal mind. Many societies have rites of passage for initiation and marking milestones in personal and tribal evolution, and today's conscious festival culture provides a space where that initiation can happen. But how can we learn from and embrace indigenous cultures without appropriating from them? Can we use the sacred songs of the land to reconnect us in our dance and "reindigenize" the West? How can we balance hedonism with radical community, capitalist modes of festivals with sustainability and spirituality? How can we use the Temporary Autonomous Zone (TAZ) of festivals as incubators for new modes of tribal evolution that can be integrated into the larger mainstream culture? A provoking discussion on the past, present and future of the global tribe as a planetary civilization in the making…

James Oroc, author of The Tryptamine Palace and the forthcoming “The Second Psychedelic Revolution” shares a provocative conversation with Rak Razam. Was the psychedelic culture of the 1960s just the latest wave of consciousness that crests and ebbs over larger tracts of time? And is there now a second wave manifesting in our culture? How many times has this happened before with indigenous cultures across the world? What natural rhythms support the blossoming of the psychedelic connection? Is Gaia tuning us in to herself and right relationship in direct response to the ecological crisis? Is each wave a stepping stone going deeper into shamanic realms and higher and higher realms of consciousness expressing and knowing itself? How to best describe the relationship between the Source, universal mind, and the ego? Is the rise of 5-MeO-DMT helping groom our relationship with direct Source within this current consciousness wave? Are these the times we’ve been waiting for? Join Rak and Roc in a paradigm shattering overview of psychedelic history, MK-Ultra, William Burroughs, Tim Leary, DMT, the 1960s, Eckhart Tolle, the quantum field, 5-MeO-DMT, love and consciousness itself.

In which they discuss Tara’s recent talk at the 2018 Exploring Psychedelics conference in Ashland: Cleansing the Ego with Entheogens. If psychoactives switch off the Default Mode Network, allowing us to open to the full spectrum of consciousness, what place does this leave the Ego? Is the ego a calcified trauma protection mechanism left behind after the fall and disconnection from Source? Are entheogens wooing us back from Ego to the We-go and the Collective Intelligence of the Unified Field? How can we work with the Ego to find right relationship? And when the peak is over, does the Ego come back stronger–and what can we do about this? Do we need Ego diets? Or more compassion? Tara explores her work with ayahuasca, kambo and other shamanic modalities in shedding light on the function and capacity of the ego and our deeper potential.
