Episode 141 – Climbing the Mountain

Join immersive journalist Rak Razam and Daniel Sitaram Das Shankin, an integration coach with Tam Integration and Sitting for Psychonauts, for a playful dinner discussion in which they discuss the cultural phenomenon known as “psychedelic integration” and the state of mainstreaming psychedelics. Is there a new wave of everyday people switching on to the medical use of psychedelics, and if so, how can this wave be culturally integrated? How can modalities like Buddhist Meditation, shamanism, somatic and Jungian Psychology support discussion, guided meditation and psychedelic support services in the community? How can intentions and goals be used in psychedelic journeywork?

How can yoga, breath and energy work be used in preparation, initiation and integration? What recovery practices can be utilized, and how can we make sense of our peak experiences and not just return to normal but raise our baseline? How can we be better people than psychedelics can give us glimpses of? And can we use the group work of integration circles to establish a true sense of psychedelic community?

“First, there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is.”
