When Jonathan Talat Phillips experienced a devastating loss as a countercultural media activist, he unwittingly started on a mystical journey marked by underground ayahuasca ceremonies, kundalini awakenings, prankster spirit guides, extraterrestrial encounters at the Burning Man festival, and miraculous energy healings that reshaped his skeptical worldview. Join me as I interview Jonathan Talat Phillips, author of The Electric Jesus: The Healing Journey of a Contemporary Gnostic, on The DisinfoCast with Matt Staggs.

    Fantastic Cast!
    cast  (kst)v. cast, cast·ing, casts(a. To throw (something, especially something light)At first I was skeptical of how this conversation might play out but I am happy to see that as the hour passed a rapport was growing between these cultural emissaries, with the ultimate goal being to hash out the various ways that people are seeking their peace in the great healing.  That being said, I want to say how much I appreciate that these lines of communication can intersect as through my own experience in both communities I feel there is much “we” have to offer each other.

    Ayahuasca isn’t for everybody. I liked the line ’It should remain only for those who are called to it’. There are plenty of techniques available to those wanting to research altered consciousness, whether it be scientifically or spiritually. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychonautics

      I agree,  I’ve done Aya just one time and not sure yet if it is a medicine I am inclined towards or not.  I don’t take anything away from it at all, rather can see where it may not be for everyone,nor should it be.  That being said, I am thankful for my experience and for the healing that she can provide and hope that whatever medicines are available be legalized so that we may all rid ourselves of the parasites unseen.   Have you had an opportunity to partake yourself MSMD?

        I’ve had it quite alot. It makes you appreciate this life and existence. If aya is truly a glimpse of the afterlife, then it is truly a frightening place, perhaps its similar to being a new born entering this world. ‘Any truly new knowledge is truly frightening’ – Ive heard that from somewhere, (McKenna?). All in all I take nothing but positive affirmations from her. Makes one realize everyones involvement in the co-creation of reality. May others use it in saftey and health and in the right set and setting.

      I don’t partake, but I’m very supportive of efforts to legalize marijuana and organic entheogenics like mushrooms. It’s asinine to declare something illegal that grows out of the ground. Psychoactive mushrooms sprout all over cow pastures here, and ironically, Mississippi is the country’s number one supplier of marijuana for research. This state (which gawd living I’ll leave one day) could be reaping in tons of cash.
