Joseph Glefer posted this audio of the Entheogenesis Australis panel discussion on which he was a participant. It's about an hour long, but it's interesting - in the U.S., at least, I am less than optimistic, despite increases in research approvals.
This is one of the panels from Entheogenesis Australis last month in which I tried my very best to be optimistic about 2012.Experiential journalist Rak Razam hosts a panel discussion at Entheogenesis Australis on the 2012 date and the implications for entheogenic culture in the year ahead. Is there a ‘strange attractor’ at the End of Time that entheogens have been presaging? What do the plants and indigenous cultures say about this critical juncture in time? Can we #Occupy our Hearts and lend that energy to the social movements transforming the world? Should we prepare for the apocalypse, or awakening? Are we a culture ready to step forward into our local communities and facilitate change, and can we make a difference? If in plants we trust, how can we not?
