FOT #18 - Overcoming the War On Drugs, Respecting Psychedelics, and Healing With Ayahuasca
Release Date: 05/27/2019
Sébastien Clermont joins me to talk about his new short documentary on the rise of psychedelic medicines and the war against drugs; called Forbidden Fruits. We discuss how we are overcoming the war against psychedelics and gaining the right to heal with these alternative medicines. Why have psychedelics been demonized for so long? What can they do for psychotherapy and spirituality?
Sébastien shares what he has learned researching the human history of psychedelic use, various cultural perspectives, as well as his own experiences with Ayahuasca and DMT. We also discuss how we must respect these powerful substances and avoid the harm that may come from going into them without proper education.
Our conversation goes into how healthcare workers and first responders are using psychedelics to relieve trauma and compassion fatigue; including the police officers who seek Ayahuasca underground. Many psychedelic communities are sprouting up networking and connecting various psychedelic healers with enthusiasts and others. Look for a psychedelic community in your area to learn more about psychedelic initiatives!
