Psychedelics


A short film by Alexander G. Ward on his Ayahuasca experience at the Tierra Vida Ayahuasca retreat in Pucallpa, Peru. Includes an introduction on Ayahuasca, the process of creating Ayahuasca, footage of an actual Ayahuasca ceremony and explanation on the psychedelic experience including his thoughts and conclusion.




Recorded by Mitch Schultz, Russell Brand joined Daniel Pinchbeck, Graham Hancock and a galactivated group of Reality Sandwich retreat-goers at the Boulder Mountain Guest Ranch in Utah for a frank and funny conversation covering a wide range of topics including the nature of contemporary media, quantum physics, the difference between psychedelics and “horrible drugs that nullify you”, what comes after time, and the idea that people have been “coded” by society not to anticipate change.

Disinformation readers who have read Graham Hancock‘s recent books Supernatural and Entangled are well aware that hallucinogens can be powerful and highly effective medicine, but until recently US government policy more or less prohibited any scientific research. The tide is starting to turn, as this article from the LA Times makes clear:

What a long, strange trip it’s been. In the 1960s and ’70s, a rebellious generation embraced hallucinogens and a wide array of street drugs to “turn on, tune in and drop out.” Almost half a century later, magic mushrooms, LSD, Ecstasy and ketamine are being studied for legitimate therapeutic uses. Scientists believe these agents have the potential to help patients with post-traumatic stress disorder, drug or alcohol addiction, unremitting pain or depression and the existential anxiety of terminal illness.

“Scientifically, these compounds are way too important not to study,” said Johns Hopkins psychopharmacologist Roland Griffiths, who conducted the psilocybin trial.

In their next incarnation, these drugs may help the psychologically wounded tune in to their darkest feelings and memories and turn therapy sessions into heightened opportunities to learn and heal…

Graham Hancock recently blogged for boingboing on the recent resurgence of the use of psychedelic drugs in medical research. Now there is an exhibit in London at the Wellcome Collection entitled “High…



As more time passes, the research and conclusions postulated by philosopher and modern psychonaut Terence Mckenna (November 16, 1946 – April 3, 2000) are proving themselves to be fact rather than fiction. His eloquent observations on the mind-body connection and in turn the human relation to the environment are essential to anyone who feels the growing disconnect between the western way of life and the natural/ecological world.

Also poignant is the political aspect of his talk, drawing the parallels between the dissolving of the soviet system to the eventual deterioriation of the western system

This is a fantastic 1991 presentation where he outlines the basic tenets of the Archaic Revival and the psychedelic experience and it’s place in the western modern technological world.





Terence McKenna’s continuing cultural influence is demonstrated in Daniel Moler’s essay for Reality Sandwich. As a side note, here at disinformation we included a documentary look at McKenna on the DVD release of our film 2012: Science or Superstition:

If anyone ever wanted to get to know me (i.e., what makes Daniel tick) the first thing I would have to tell them is, “Read Terence McKenna.” In online forums and real life scenarios alike, I quote McKenna like Jules Winnfield quotes Ezekiel in Pulp Fiction. Passionate. With conviction. My armor and weapon when I’m ready to blast the meandering monotony of day-to-day living. However, most people ask, who is this guy? What exactly is the Terence McKenna circus? And, what makes him so important?

A few weeks ago my friend Michelle suggested I write a “Terence for Dummies” piece. So, since “For Dummies” is under copyright, here’s my bent on the McKenna legacy.

Reality Sandwich presents a fascinating interview from the new movie 2012: Time For Change:

In this video, the psychologist and author Stanislav Grof. Grof discusses with Daniel how psychedelics helped him create an expanded cartography for the psyche, with a new emphasis on what he calls the “paranatal” and transpersonal consciousness. We need to raise up from our self imposed biological cubicles, that is the next level of consciousness. Evolve to Solve!
