Episode 130 – Beloved

A special Valentine's Day edition with experiential journalist Rak Razam and Joanna Harcourt Smith, all about love. Joanna was the starseed psychedelic beloved of Timothy Leary from his escape from prison in 1972, where they met on the run in Afghanistan, throughout the four years of his re-imprisonment until 1977.

His love letters to her have recently been returned to her possession, and her reading from them uncovers both a perennial love story and a historical treasure trove of data from those years. How did Tim's separation and imprisonment heighten his tantric appreciation for love itself?

How did the psychedelic ideas of Exo-Psychology and the Eight-Circuit model of Consciousness he devised permeate his letters? How do we learn to love unconditionally, open up to the Source in all of us, and still find the Beloved to anchor in our temples?

A deeply intimate Satsang on the power of love from us, to you... Find more of Joanna Harcourt Smith's work at: https://futureprimitive.org and her book Tripping the Bardo with Timothy Leary: My Psychedelic Love Story.
