Sacred Psychedelics Podcast
In this episode members of the Evolver Community discuss their journey and transformation with psychedelics.
First up we have Evolver co-founder Jonathan Talat Phillips interviewing Reality Sandwich contributor Adam Elenbaas about his new book, "Fishers of Men: The Gospel of an Ayahuasca Vision Quest." Adam discusses his journey from being a “hell-damning” fundamentalist Christian to recovering from drug addiction and healing himself and his family line through ayahuasca ceremonies in the Amazon. He shares his encounters with mystical beings and inter-dimensional creatures during his adventures with this shamanic brew, as well as his thoughts on why Jesus was the social activist version of the Buddha, how there is nothing to fear in the entire cosmos, and ways we might redeem modern Christianity.
Next up I interviewed Isabella Stoloff who is the Evolver Regional coordinator for Evolver Orange County. She is also a practicing Shaman and heads up the Orange County Healing Center. In this interview she talks about how she came to be involved with Evolver through her Shamanic work in the Amazon. She mentions a Love meditation that she did at the Evolver Long Beach Love Spore and that was captured on video and is up on youtube.com for you to check out.
Finally we have a captivating story of transformation with Jennifer Palmer interviewing Charles Shaw talking about his journey, and how psychedelics helped him get, "paroled from hell”. Charles has been a long time contributor with Reality Sandwich and has also spoken at a number of different Evolver Spores. Currently his book "Exile Nation: Drugs, Prisons, Politics & Spirituality” is being released chapter by chapter on Reality Sandwich--you can read the most recent installation here. Charles is also about to kick off his “Light and Shadow: Exploring Personal & Cultural Transformation” tour. The tour will be visiting over thirty cities and will also feature RS contributor Michael Garfield. While on the road Charles will be shooting for his upcoming documentary project “Unheard Voices”. Enjoy the interview and check out everything that Charles is up to.
