Secrets of the Sacred Mushroom: StephenGray Vision interviews Michael Stuart Ani (#3)

MIchael Stuart Ani has led and continues to live an extraordinary life. Much of it has been spent in the company of indigenous wisdom carriers in Central and South America, where he has learned a number of their languages and been instrumental in keeping their essential ancient knowledge alive for the generations to come. In this interview Michael shares insights on: how we “moderns” have lost our connection to the wisdom of the ancestors and nature; how the tribes that kept their connection with the sacred mushrooms have had the most success in keeping that knowledge alive; the untold history and central importance for us all of the Ghost Dance; how every plant has a spirit, a voice, and a song; and how his mushroom spirit Desheto has repeatedly told him that we will get through this extremely difficult transition period.

I’ve been involved in spiritual work and psychedelics for 50 years. This includes more than 20 years as a student and occasional teacher of Tibetan Buddhism; a dozen years actively involved with Native American Church peyote prayer ceremonies; “guest” membership in the ayahuasca-using Santo Daime Church, and experience with a number of other entheogens. I’m also the author of Returning to Sacred World: A Spiritual Toolkit for the Emerging Reality, and editor as well as one of 18 contributors to the popular Cannabis and Spirituality: An Explorer’s Guide to an Ancient Plant Spirit Ally. I teach people about the spiritual benefits of intentional cannabis use and conduct cannabis meditation and sound-journeying ceremonies.
