Episode 66 – Growing up with Terence, La Chorrera and immanatizing the Eschaton

Join experiential journalist Rak Razam in a frank and revealing interview with Dennis McKenna on the cusp of his new book publication, The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss. Dennis discusses his early life with Terence and the unbreakable bond between his brother and him; living through the first wave of the psychedelic 1960s; the Experiment at La Chorerra (recounted in full, mind-blowing detail) and the fallout that still lingers to this day.

The 2012 meme, Timewave Zero, ayahuasca and the Global Shamanic Resurgence are all examined at length, as is the passing of Terence and the impact on his family and the entheogenic tribe. Dennis also discusses the perils and pitfalls of writing not just a memoir but a critique of sorts on Terence, his ideas and legacy, and why he wanted to get this book out before Dec 21st, 2012.

With additional commentary by Australian shamanic practitioner, Darpan.
