A friend sent me a link to this article by Mariana Caplan and I thought it worth sharing. I met Mariana last fall during the Sophia panel. One of the variations we spoke about (off-camera) that might fit into several on the list is the use of drugs for “spiritual experiences.” Such approaches go by many euphemisms like “medicine journey” but they are high-risk ventures, especially when done in remote areas of other countries. I know several people who’s lives where royally messed up by such a trip.
A key aspect of depth and integration is clearing the subtle bodies of energetic debris. Intense, distorted experiences and violent physical reactions are the antithesis of this.
Recently Rose Rosetree has done a series on the energetic effects such drugs have had on several “shamans.” Nasty astral entanglement and a very messed up energy body? There’s nothing spiritual about it.
