  • Entheogen help for PTSD
  • What does the future of shamanism look like?

Most native traditions seem to have a sense of a non-duality as a core reality in their spiritual worldview. Tweet it!
The ego is a by-product of the activity of the serotonin 2 receptor. Tweet it!
Entheogens detach us from our allegiance to the status quo. Tweet it!
