Wade Davis on Psychedelics, Shamanism, Culture: StephenGray Vision Interviews

Wade Davis is one of the world’s leading voices on behalf of cultural- and bio-diversity. Here he shares such penetrating insights as: how psychedelics have catalyzed major cultural shifts; psychedelics as subversive agents of liberation; the war on drugs as a deliberate lie for political gain; the South American indigenous recognition that plants and animals are just people in another dimension; the unexpected ascendancy of ayahuasca as the global “superstar” psychedelic; the true role of the shaman and the dangers of the shamanic path; the de-animation of the world and the necessity of reciprocity and connection. Note: Wade has a new book out (Sept. 15, 2020) called, “Magdalena: Rivers of Dreams.” Wade told me it’s a love letter to Colombia.
