"Ayahuasca has been my greatest teacher" - Dennis McKenna.
Interviewing the sage and visionary Dennis McKenna about his life experience on psychedelics, ethnopharmacology, healing mental illness, ethnobotanical findings, plant medicine, ayahuasca as the great teacher, the owner of psilocybin, exploring the Amazonas with Terence McKenna, advice on set and setting and personal recommendations for a good living. It's an interview divided into three parts... First, Dell Jolly from Unlimited Sciences, second the first conversation I had with Dennis in November. Third, in the last part of our conversation, held in n January, I'm joined by the PRO athlete and biohacker Luis Enrique Palomares. So we finished the interview, that we had to postpone the interview halfway due to an emergency.
"Psychedelics have the potential to revolutionize mental health."
As I mentioned above, before interviewing Dennis McKenna for the intro, I asked Del Jolly from Unlimited Sciences, collective psychedelic research, to give us more background information about the impact of psychedelics and psilocybin on society, mental illness and PTSD why it's important the work they are doing.
