We all know that you don’t have to be a broadcaster to make great television anymore – just think of Orange is the New Black and House of Cards on Netflix. But have any of you checked out Mindshift yet? It’s a new internet TV series hosted by Daniel Pinchbeck on Gaiam TV. We were lucky enough to be involved in the formative stages where the series was being planned and all the brainstorming has really paid off.
The current episode features Daniel with Alex Grey and Michael Muhammad Knight. Here’s the official show description:
Many religions have used various mind altering substances to connect with a creative mind, far beyond the limits of our five senses. In modern times, the use of these substances has become illegal. However, something is about to change. Daniel Pinchbeck talks with two luminaries to discuss the historical and future role of psychedelics and religion.
Artist, Alex Grey talks about the use of LSD as a creative tool that which creates a visionary mystical experience to connect with sacred reality. Then, author Michael Muhammad Knight offers his view of Islam that is considered controversial to some. Even more controversial was his profound experience with ayahuasca and the divine feminine. Both agree that bringing psychedelic sacrament back into religions would initiate a reemergence of the divine feminine and bring balance to the masculine dominance found in prominent religions in this inaugural episode
