Dennis Mckenna: Societal delusions, Crooked Media, and the Immortality Key
For episode 22 of Business, Life, and Ayahuasca we are incredibly thankful to have on the godfather of psychedelics, Dennis Mckenna. Dennis Mckenna has been on the scene of the psychedelic movement since the 60s and is still vastly influential today. Dennis Mckenna along with his late brother Terrence Mckenna were a key factor in the introduction of psilocybin mushrooms in the United States. They are considered pioneers of western psychedelic culture and Dennis Mckenna continues to impact the culture through education and organizations such as his very own Mckenna Academy of Natural Philosophy.

I believe that many of the world’s problems can be solved by self-actualized, conscious entrepreneurs, who have an excellent understanding of the world they live in and the cultures who share that world with them. For these reasons, I believe that the most important things our world’s up-and-coming leaders can do right now are to work with plant medicines, get to know the world we share with others, and become the most effective conscious entrepreneurs possible.

Pulse Of The Jungle
Many people today feel trapped and unsatisfied with the way their lives are going, but those who do can take heart. Daniel Cleland is living proof that you can have it all—adventure, spiritual health, emotional fulfillment, and business success—if you are open to unique experiences, prepared to take risks, and willing to ignore the limits that you have imposed on yourself. Daniel’s fearless curiosity and entrepreneurial vision carried him deep into the Peruvian jungle, a world away from his native Ontario and farther from the mundane than he ever thought possible. In the Amazon rain forest, he participated in shamanic rituals involving the powerful medicinal plant ayahuasca. The insights and enlightenment he gained awakened him to new commercial as well as spiritual opportunities and led him to create the Ayahuasca Adventure Center and Pulse Tours in the jungle’s heart. PULSE OF THE JUNGLE is Daniel’s fascinating chronicle of cultural immersion and bold innovation, coupled with enlightening stories of colleagues, artists, and others who also sought and achieved profound change in their lives.
