Episode 8 – Shamanic Filmmaker Rod Mann

After the Byron Bay screening of the documentary "EntheoGenesis: Awakening the Divine Within" with shamanic filmmaker Rod Mann, this is an informal Q&A session with Rod, experiential journalist Rak Razam and the audience, discussing issues raised by the movie: the influence of LSD on the computer community around Silicon Valley of the 1960s; Alex Grey; rites of passage and initiation; the dual taboos of psychedelics and sex; creating didactic films that teach and entertain about non-ordinary states; robots; Obama's psychedelic connection; a spiritual approach to filmmaking and using ayahuasca as a cleansing and focusing agent.
