What we are witnessing unfold in the psychedelic movement is truly unprecedented. We are reaching a tipping point where psychedelic medicines are rapidly entering mainstream society.  But is this really a good thing? And how do we make sense of the sacramental and sacred use of psychedelics within the cultural context of late-stage capitalism? 

In this episode, Laura Dawn drops in with best selling author of Stealing Fire and Recapture the Rapture, Jamie Wheal, who holds strong opinions about the dark underbelly of the psychedelic movement. Jamie shares the pitfalls we need to be aware of and how this psychedelic party isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. Jamie shares his criticisms and cynicism with a twist of hope and invitation to tend to and feed the holy in our lives. This is how we build our lives around meaning 3.0.
