"Tony Suite with kept Iran. You're listening to truth be told please welcome. Daniel Pinch back Daniel. I'm great thank you so much for doing this. And this is not Captain Ron but Intern jt who puts all this stuff together behind the scenes and produces it. Thank you JT But I know I know you are overseas and I'm excited to hear about all other stuff you're doing but in before we get into your books I'm all about the transformation about the journeys of people and I I WANNA know from from the time you started. Maybe in the nineties even to this day. I want to go over to your own transformation. Now you talked about in a psychedelic drugs to psychic experiences. Ufo's humans Humanity is under attack and also in transformation. I WanNa see through your experience and your research. How is your own transformation Come about what have you discovered about yourself that That surprised you. So how long you got. I mean that's that's a big. That's a big. We got two and a half day so I my first book was called breaking. Open the head and it's a book about second shamanism and the Genesis of that book was. I had a kind of existential crisis. Scriptural emergency of like nihilism and despair by late twenty s and wanted to sort of hours a skeptic and a scientific materialist but I was interested in seeing if there was anything else in the universe. Consciousness that might serve reclusive Went back to psychedelics. And I got assignments I went to West Africa through tribal Recalled the weedy and Gabon taking psychedelic. Boga visited the Amazon and Ecuador. To work with a tribe called Sequoia Wasco visited Magic Tech Indians Mexico where we rediscovered magic mushrooms. Fifty S and I interviewed all sorts of chemists apologists. That went to the burning man festival which wasn't as well known back that was like math. Corcoran two or something. Twenty years so Yeah so the book that I had all these experiences of my own and eventually they broke through my skepticism. Because I would have these specific things that would happen. Shamans would tell me information about my childhood that could know about or secret societies. All the things that you read about in initiation story whatever so I had to shift my whole world view And that's but I wrote about in the first book breaking up with him but also the second book. Two thousand twelve trip gets a quadrille where I was really looking at a bigger I live Colt thinking and quantum physics and My encounter cycles and so many other subjects. What else you want to know that some of it now. That's that's great and when you first started out how what was your mindset because you know I grew up in Kansas you know very bible belt. You Know Christianity filled my head with with a lot of different things but going forward spirituality side of me kind of opened up of not even before this even before I moved to Los Angeles where everybody thinks you know where the spiritual gurus here but not we're just you know people seeking their journeys as everybody else but What was your mindset growing up. Was it more kind of a solid thinking or were you more open to the The universe itself Both my parents were artists in different ways. Oh that's good. My Dad was a abstract painter. Mother was editor and an author of a number of books. She was actually involved with the beat generation. The nineteen fifties. She was dating the novelist. Jack Kerouac when published his bestselling book on the road. So I I came from sort of a Bohemian artistic background Without religious or spiritual right I've always wanted to try HIAWATHA. Listen I've never taken. A drug never smoked any marijuana cannabis. I've never drank alcohol. Barely even take aspirin. What was the first experience like for you or an advice? You can give someone that has never been open to any of that stuff but actually wants to try. This is kind of experience it was was it for you Well you know skin particularly any second well starting with high. Wasco in then we'll move onto because I know you've tried sir. You know in a way I understand why you would. Maybe think I ask is okay. Even if you don't like these other ideas taking drugs because it really is kind of a medicine is considered like the visionary medicine of the Amazon Basin. And it's usually used ceremonially. There's usually a presiding shaman. Who LOOKED AFTER REBUTTED? A and so. It's very different just taking like mushrooms realistic going out with a friend or something. Very structured experience usually like songs and Healings cleansings and so on. So yeah you know might be a great thing for you to try if you if you if you feel up to it and I think Jt had a question asked me earlier. But you had a question about the HIAWATHA. Yeah I want to talk about Commonly people talk about seeing visions of serpents. Jaguars when they take I WASPA- is that something that you've experienced or know anything I've ever seen. Some serpents has been the main point of my visions but Yeah there's a was so just to mention. I've been new book out that I wrote with the young woman apologists. Iraq Len Coleman Plant Stream Which overlooks the whole phenomena? Vishwa skirts global spread history and so on and What was your initial question can actually rescue bouncer. Yeah just the commonality in the Seeing serpent or the visions Jaguars. There's there's a Isreaeli researcher. Benny Shanon wrote a book on the kind of phenomenology whilst experience so he did a lot of statistical surveys that he did find that like people often saw the same type of material You know which from a young in Carl. Young Great Swiss psychoanalyst. We've talked about the collective unconscious in archetypes in psyche. He was you know. The onion perspective is that you're seeing different kind of archetypal images of the collective psyche So but somebody else might say that those are spirits that are actually connected with this particular medicine and somebody else would just say. It was your suggestion illusion of your mind. I A lot of people I've interviewed when it comes to like near death experiences. Even my grandfather had one But some people like scientifically or even you know. Nonbelievers say oh. It's just your mind playing tricks on you. In in somewhat of a transitional period. It just never really happened. Do you feel that Hiawatha? And a lot of these You know Drugs are not even the hateem say drugs but Plants or medicine that gave you that experience. Do you feel this is actually An a door opening to another dimension or do you feel like it's just your mind playing tricks on you. Yeah I mean what what what is in our mind playing tricks on US map. You know the Russian right. I mean you know there's a north scientists who talks about how you're actually experiencing controlled hallucination. You know it's like are you know we are physical sense. Organs take in what are basically just energetic frequencies and then in the mind they're kind of transmit -duced in mediated that we can respond to them as we do So young I mean I I tend to think that's There are other realities or other dimensions that you can experience through substances How there's other dimensions exist. What that means exactly the drivers the questions that we haven't really begun to understand yet. Yeah and I I know you talked about Through your experience having more psychic abilities or but I- I interview and we've had many people in our studio and even people on my network That are psychics. And they say everyone has that ability. But you're saying that these plants or or drugs or whatever you WANNA call them have given you the opportunity to enhance those. Is that correct? I think a lot of people have that experience. I mean it's not a big phase. What's you know? It's called the second renaissance right now so much incredible research being done on the therapeutic benefits healing benefits but it is also true that many many people report got a paranormal experiences. Psychic experiences That's not something that's been as much spoken about. Recently as the focus has really been on the value in the efficacy of these substances For tweeting all sorts of different conditions. But I personally am very very fascinated by how visionary medicines like I gotTa psychedelics sort of This seemed to open the gates for all kinds of paranormal psychic experience. Yeah I I like. I said I've had my own intuitions. But I've never really felt like my psychic abilities are enhanced but you know intuition is somewhat of a a psychic ability. I guess And we we've heard from people again through near death experiences that it also has enhanced their abilities that reminds me a very similar with taking a WASCO. I'm sure I'm sure there's some connection. I mean the the main constituent of I WASPA- as PSYCHEDELIC trip to meaner. Gmt Right which is a chemical that you know we store in our brains that may be produced by the piano. Glands and Rick's draftsmen wrote a book the empty the skirt molecule and he basically became convinced that you know this. Tnt might be this kind of Conducted media that that you know pulls the soul out of body at death And is responsible for life review and so on so yeah we don't really know yet but it certainly to speculate. Yeah that's I. Every time I hear you and other people talk about near death and then you know hiawassee another. I really feel like there. There is a connection You also were talking about how well I mean because even in the sixties when like LSD was taking or was taken by the younger generation. It really You see the the videos that they put on on the media you know especially back then it made everyone look just a responsible but nowadays you know Hiawatha the. I think you're saying that it could be the new LSD of that time. Is that correct? Well I wouldn't say that weighs trivializing level subjects right. I mean I definitely think that Iowa SCA is having a already a profound influence our culture. How many wealthy. Well I mean Many people I know who are who are kind of been very like you know. Have a lot of well. Server Successful Fund Wasco Rick transformative and changed their way of investing their money or companies purpose. And so on you know so. It is a big awakening for a lot of people. And how does 'cause I remember watching you in one of your workshops the you talked about high Wasco or even other I'm trying to think the one from Africa. What was the The it it Starts Working your brain working together and I mean 'cause we talk about you know we hear about. Oh we only use like ten percent of our brain or whatever it is that it does. It really opened up a whole different side of creative with e bogus It's basically a fury that bogus being used to treat a Add extra heroin addicts really amazing tool for addiction treatment and theory that what about about how it might work. That seems like it. It.

"Yes. I do think that they have relationship I myself. I'm just beginning to get even even my relationship with the basketball now. Yeah mysteries rungs flood to learn. What what about other admixtures admixtures too? I watch the I know that I've had experiences with deter. Another thing you do is that you're on in the groups that you work with. No I mean if you go like the Koya they do they call it baby which is also Detroit But it's a an initiate Tori admixture. So you're not trying to have After ten twenty years of practice listen work. It's a plant that can cause cardiac arrest you know so it's not a joke. It's very serious on our our group advent together for quite a while before we we did that the first time in it it was never repeated. Owns guarantee like envy. Let me kind of shift gears just a little bit more to Has We've had a a number of people talking about various forms of Iowa tourism which isn't getting good good repute hit but then the more specific questions since you happen to be a young woman and they are. The most young women are the most vulnerable to Shoddy lost a the tourism. What kind of advice can you give not just a young women but anybody? Who's who has you know? Just feeling their way for the first time and would like to become more are involved in in authentic watch experiences. Yeah great question well. There's a website called Sha Croona Dot Com and Dan Dot net Dot Net and they recently published guidelines for sexual abuse in Iras are also. It's pretty exhausted. List listed like different questions. You can be asking different approaches to take but I guess looking back now I would say The things to do our one year research you know get if you can be in touch with people who have previously into this enger reach out beyond in Texas or facilitators so people were not ashamed of the servers necessarily but you know you can you. You develop a report relationship if you really WANNA go big. Bring a friend with you. Make sure that your there's a buddy system accountability And then there's one line I really like in those guidelines lines which goes. He's a shaman. Not Saints which basically means don't assume anything like don't assume I mean people in the jungle. You are just like us you know may have sexual desires and impulses in if you have a young girl. That's hanging around all the time. It may not be. It may look like you are offering. You're just you need to be clear about these things. So there's no la that Shamans can't sleep with the people who come so it's really about being very clear. I think that's where facilitators are very important orange because they're translating those intercultural complexities in a way That sometimes you know we don't we don't get by that first experience coming in a tank top and whatever you just be you know another thing I think facilitators are good for US depending on. I'm what your intention is going to the jungle foreign experience. I know that I'm a Vietnam vet nurse. A number of Vietnam veterans groups that are going jungle now for a ptsd the St. And we're going to have some On here in a few weeks that we've had on or and hearing the results are just astounding. You know that the I know that without Alaska I wouldn't be here now and I know that with a lot of my friends. It's very important. Medicine is very important important plant and yet like you say if we're not careful guest to To sensationalize I should say we don't WanNa go back to the LSD phrase of the sixties and and I lost is so popular so many people are not that. Don't really know much so I want to circle background to. How did you connect with Daniel Pinch back? And we're Kim into writing a book with you. I mean that's a real true. Let me tell you I know Daniel. They've been friends a long. Not having that caught up so I mentioned earlier I worked at evolve over which is looking at the time. I had written my undergraduate thesis on. I watch them so I wrote this. Little book called Old Gods multicolored people and it was all about working with sequoia in Ecuador and telling the story from we. We call them like personnel at Nagasaki in the equality so you know not having this cruel distant approach actually leaving your own noir in in what you're doing so I very much wrote about being awkward white girl the forest and not having any idea what I was doing out after And I showed into Daniel and he loved it and you know we stayed in touch over the years but I knew to Spain. I lived in Spain for two and a half years. I did my masters there and Daniel had been offered to write a book about Iran. He was asked to write a book about it And he's you know I guess frankly frankly he said I'm a bit stuck and you know I remember. You wrote this thing. Do you WanNa you WANNA be a researcher We can collaborate so so I moved back to New York I was already going. And Yeah then I just out of the interviews and I picked up back up and eventually I was with the gentleman. Barnaby crew zipped professor at New York University. May you know his work and I was doing an interview with him and he said hey wait a minute. Why don't you write the book too? And I said Holy Cow Wide on right the book. What a crazy idea and then I asked Daniel? Can I write the book and he said Yeah I was GonNa ask you anyway. Rage Age and so it really works out there as nicely Fermi. So I'm I'm infinitely grateful. I got like a big leg up. It had a boost with that. I think I've been wielding this power. Pretty a graciously inpatient and it's really fun. Yeah and the process of CO CO offering in such an adventure because you never know I guess it was Danielle Niles about strikes. It's like okay. Let's sit down and write the thing but it was fun. We actually a lot of fun interview. Different people. Him and I had arguments writing the book. You know like really but you could almost do a behind the scenes of different. At some point he was calling the Iowa Sheriff because he thought I was getting too judgmental about how people use to buy I can I can hear him saying. He's more into life remake saying evolving. Winging doing things I I won't have. I won't ask you any of your pet names for him because that's Dan. Daniel is a brilliant guy but he could the difficult to work with some very impressed that you pull that off and not too easy to work with the inverse. I think we're both equally unpleasant and it out.

I lost the production and those are kind of like the you know the the different aspects. We rented this show because really at the end of the day. You know we're doing these shows but the idea's ideas to create culture and community. Where do the shelves right? So it's not like you do the things you say Go back to your daily life. So we're actually supporting communities making taking psychedelic societies. They haven't distorted already your book clubs or salons Disagreed more of a culture where you can have people to integrate breath and so those organizations map stance as Can support that forward really transforming culture grassroots Stilo in out Outcross holiday you guys with some people are going to be on Next year who have stuck some guys got together but six months ago to try get more people to come out of the PSYCHEDELIC Alec Closet on Social Media and in just a few months now they have like four hundred people in forty countries and their goal is to have one hundred thousand people by the end of next year and and so Tying them in with some of the things you're doing and as time for us to start standing up and talking about this and put your mind at ease a little bit in conservative communities.

Why are we here not entirely clear we we are misfits and by random chance with no Hanson supposed to make its bizarre the liberty and welcome to the here we are podcast. Today I am talking with breath the author of the book when Plants Dream Iowa Ska Amazonian shamanism in the global psychedelic renaissance written written with Daniel Pinch back my guest today Sofia Rocklin joining me so this is going to be such an interesting episode because we're friends and now actually usually I'm. I'm interviewing someone. I've never met before and a couple of weeks ago. We were in a festival in a Zora Zora hungry as my first sight Trans Festival he did well and Sophia and I met we're giving talks on our various subjects and I was doing a talk about dot and talking about Iowa and we got introduced introduced and we started talking and then we just hung out for the whole festival and talked for like three days straight and our best friend still talking yeah still talking. I I mean best friends or is it like thank you like it comes with time. Yeah I mean right now. You're like number eight on my speed dial. do you have are you too young to know the speed dial yeah. No I understand what a speed dial referenced wanting to. If I'm on your celestial speed dial if you're having a spiritual ritual crisis or emerging GONNA call your number three yeah yeah. It'd be a good resource for that though so you're you're this. I I want you to kind of talk a little bit about your background I think you're real impressive person then. I'm jealous that you're you have your first book coming out at twenty six years old and you're already like you've already like gone through all all of the Iowa's like discovering yourself and know who you are all the things I'm still trying to figure out thirty nine so the chickens picking yourself apart and then putting yourself back together so many times. Oh Yeah it is funny. People are always like well. I'm worried I'M GONNA lose my mind on psychedelics and I will. Why are you so attached mine. Lose your mind. You just make a new one so why don't you share a little bit of your background sure well. I'M I won't get into to too much excruciating detail but the important details are I'm born and raised in Modern Day Babylon New York City. I was like super secular her upbringing and yeah very lucky nice childhood but I was always very drawn to ritual and community and just kind of like seeing how people congregate in ways that aren't necessarily related to like making money. You're doing you know more more practical sort of work oriented things and I started off as a teenager as as an actor actually I was mostly in film and TV and voice overs Can I ask you. Is this why you're so comfortable. I'm not sure I don't know I certainly it it it. It's an aspect but I actually found that I was crippen. Open cripplingly humiliated when I would see myself on camera. I hated it. A really really didn't like seeing myself taped but what I loved was sitting in in in in a place and sort of transcending the space time barrier you know when you're onstage and you kind of almost blackout or something and you have this energy of an audience and and you're really holding a container and bringing people on a journey really and that's and there's you know that's a part of acting but that's also quite like shamanic practices says I would say not dubbing myself a shaman but it's I'm interested in these states of transcendence and putting on new skin and seeing things from different perspectives so you know and I so I acted acted for quite a few years and then I was just sense to one too many auditions for ditsy blonde girl number ten whatever and and I left for number eight well good thing you're not in charge yeah so yes so oh I did that for a long time and then simultaneously actually as I was sort of easing out of the acting I was in meshed and the and the burning man culture in New York City which is very edgy and cool and that was in my late teens. Actually I was so excited to get out of the house. I was totally convinced that we were all in a jail and school was miserable and I would it kind of is I mean and and yeah and then one thing led to another and I met I was at occupy Wall Street. Actually and I met some native American elders there who were praying and they started to talk about you know some some sacrament central to their religion and included plants like like Peyote so I was fascinated by these plans that people were claiming to be so important to them and that sort of kicked off my what seems to be you know Lifelong Investigation Gatien into plants and people and so so then you went to college. I did go to college. Sometimes now I went to college. yeah. I went to college college and then I I studied anthropology and religion and to be honest. You know this was happening. Simultaneously as I kind of went Gonzo in the scene in New York City at some point I was going every weekend which I would not recommend by any means I think I just didn't have a point of reference but I loved being in containers and little community spaces where people were just committed to getting to know each other better and getting through their own rush it and improving themselves as people and I found that like a really beautiful thing that I'd never found in my life before so I was one component of it but it's really the the environment that it creates in the community that creates that was so interesting to me and yeah and then I started to study at apology ethno botany all these different kinds of things together in order to kind of understand simultaneously what was going on with I o Oscar what was the sort of cultural context and yeah and then and then that ended up leaving leading me eventually to where I had probably the most profound experiences of my life in the Ecuadorian an Amazon in the Cuneo region which is like the northeastern area which is home to a community called the sequoia and they call themselves the Seco- Pie and they're part of a group called the to the to Konno's speaking peoples and they're about in that area there about one hundred and thirty communities that live clustered straight around the deep deep rainforests there some of the most bio diverse place on earth in one hector there are more plant and animal species than you'll find in all of North America Erica combined so it's just this like devastating profusion of wildlife and plants and it's totally incomprehensible in green and gorgeous and confusing and scary and painful especially when you step in it or you eat it weird or whatever and and yeah from there I just became completely fascinated aided by you know hey hanging out with the sequoia who had been pretty devastated by an oil spill that happened in nineteen sixty four that a company called Texaco oh which is now owned and operated by Chevron they're responsible for that and they've been you know many many years of fierce legal battles and that has left after many communities in that area of really devastated having abnormal cancer's growth. You know it's it's ugly in the water isn't clean there so I went there sort of fancying myself Cool WanNa be and the botanist and I left really really shaken actually really really really shaken because I was having these psychedelic experiences with yeah hey so Jaja is is another word for Iowa Ska but it's typically made instead of using the DMZ containing leaf Sikri avera this it would be lopped discovery Rana so Oscar is a combination of two different plans typically the Bene- stereotypes this copy Upi vine and the Saco cheer leaf so when I was drinking with these communities drinking yeah hey with a few elder the few elders that continue you to drink because these days you know it's very common around indigenous communities in Amazon that that Shaman shamanic practices or any sort of herbal herbal practices are seen as antiquated vestiges of the past that sort of tie them down to pry primitive behavior whatever it's ugly and people want to sort of evolve in move past that but there are few elders who continue to have that relationship with the plants and the traditions so yeah I I was drinking yeah hey with the small group of old guys and having a really hard time yeah like my brain turned into Jello Field Control Liam and the you know the arteries and the joints in my body turns into little cogs.

They'll be linked to it in the at Dunkin Trussell DOT COM in this episode and coming out quietly with us for a little bit of time I just have been doing my own sort of solitary meditation practice in every once in a while like to sit with a group of people just because it's weird and it's cool and it's fun and it's weird all right. We've got a fantastic podcast for you today. Philosopher author and Seiken Not an activist Daniel Pinch Beck is here with us today my apologies oh Jeez the we recorded this in London well he was in London. I was in the United States and you're gonNA hear that weird. Warping thing where suddenly it sounds like somebody is transformed into a robot or as using a really shitty voter. I kinda like it because we talk about nasty conspiracies a coke control mechanisms Daniels new book and it really does seem like whenever we're getting to a point of really talking about something heavy it just warps in this sort of demonic way so again my apologies. There is no way for me to fly to London and do this live but I really did enjoy this conversation so without further ado everybody welcome back to the Doug Trussell family our podcast Daniel Pinch each back Mr Pinch back welcome back to the D.. H. is good as you man. I I gotTa Tell You you I'm on your email list and the book you just wrote you call it. An essay popped up on my feed and it man it's right up my alley and so I just talk about this incredible book because it involves everything. I love a coke conspiracies the U._F._O.. Phenomena is people are calling it and Nostra schism so just for my own selfish desires. I wonder if you could start off by giving a very brief synopsis of Pasta Schism as You understand it because it's been really weird. It's hard for me to wrap my mind around it yeah so yeah I mentioned that a good sources this <hes> but by John Lash not in his image but essentially this idea that <hes> some people think bossism is a heretical sect of Christianity but be existing mystery school was the ancient world that the form that a token the classical world until was really persecuted pretty much out of existence like the fourth and fifth century and the core belief. It's very different than Orthodox Christianity they talk about a beautiful goddess who lived at the a center of the universe called deplorable began to have visions and dreams of this you know Emerald Green and Blue Planet floating you know in the universe and which was the earth and she became a Berkeley <unk> Phychi fell into matter and she incarnated as the earth us over them. The Earth is as got US afire at in that fall into matter it was a big event graded these ripples space-time mm fabric in through those little rips and tears these kind of devious evil beings called the archives came into this reality led by the ringmaster's note. Is the Debbie urge essentially they're. They're they've they've you know I guess you could say that they live off of our energy our fear devotion and so on so they've kind of constructed a false reality you know sort of Matrix reality that they were that were stuck in so we don't actually get to connect with the true cosmic source so for the sticks like the myth of the guard Davita the serpent and the garden they don't see that as Satan they see that as actually as the Christ is coming as a messenger of the true cosmic power to Komo help humanity awake and gained knowledge again. Wow you could see how that would infuriate modern stereotypical Christians because that seems like definitely a thing that Satan cooked up like if you I believe in that model it's so amazing and but essentially the Nasdaq's are saying actually Christianity is clearly the thing Satan to cook dinner and she had any as debbie or GIC deviation..

"Programs on one of our guests for upcoming program. Daniel pinch back who's been on the radio show as well over the years is a vowed man made climate change proponent, and I was talking to him. And I said, well, let's, let's talk about the debate ability about this Daniel, and he immediately stopped me and said, it's not a debate, it's not debatable. Why is this so emotional with so many people? This is a strange thing. It, it for example, a lot of people will say, to me, including scientists, by the way, that we agree with you, that the weather is perfectly normal well within natural variability info on. But we would never say that publicly and you you'll find people that, that people say to me, you know, I told my family I didn't buy the global warming duty humans nonsense and immediately get Austria Cise people. Hold incredibly powerful, strong us about something. They know absolutely nothing about, and this is what's remarkable about this. The, the set of hysteria that takes over with people with certain issues where they have very very definite views of something that they say that they know absolutely nothing about why can't people though, Tim just sit down and say, okay, there's a problem here. The climate is chain. Changing, and it's changing drastically. What can we do about it? How can we help mankind rather than blaming what the causes necessarily? Well, of course that the premise of your question is, is not correct. The first thing that what's got to happen, if, if people need to be educated about what the climate is, and how it changes over time. And once you do that, then you can start to say to people okay now what do you. But unfortunately, if you do it the way you suggest again, all you get is this emotional ill-informed the response. I mean if it's an earth cycle in terms of climate change. There's really nothing we can do about it. Is there other than move inland and things like that? Right. Starkly as humans is how we.

And anyway, that's my question. Well, I'm not a doctor. But what I know about it is that I voted the whole route. It's got several other enclaves in it other than I begin. And I begin is the primary alkaloid of the I Boga route, and it's extracted. I begin can be had from other plants as well. As I go. You know, there's a plan called Congo, which also has regained to begin the extract on the out of the primary alkaloid Ibuka. The is the root in both deliver a similar experience. But I don't enough about the delivery. Andrew, I think you're you're the person to answer that. Yeah. I don't know any more than what you just shared. But I think, but I think it should be mentioned that he Boga the root has been used in traditional spiritual practice by the weedy and kgab Gaborone. So it, you know, has a whole history. Before I gain was discovered as an addiction in interrupted. And one thing that's quite interesting is that some of the people who have been cured if you can use that word, you know, by gain have gone back to 'gabon to become wheaty priests and the Gabonese the BT have been very accepting of westerners Americans going back becoming priests and bringing the we'd see religion or spiritual practices to the United States. So it's a very interesting, you know, in a cultural exchange. I'm curious Andrew because first of all I think that's really positive and succeeding that they're being accepted. But I wonder also if we're in danger of Boga tourism, like the Iowa tourism problem has not turned up are there. A lot of people going back among. I don't think. So because I mean, I just don't think that has been a phenomenon yet because I think I gain has been brought to a number of places around the world. So I don't think. Gabon is a place you would go if you wanted to get treated, so if you were interested in the spiritual practice, you mentioned Daniel pinch Bax, he his book breaking open the head is about his trip tubing on and for spiritual purposes. And I know from his bookie at a very challenging experience down. There. Did you know this is not something that you're going to do for fun? I mean, this is serious serious business. Your your may you may go back to the bone for, you know, for a very serious spiritual interest, or you might, you know, travel to Mexico or Canada or. Where else I think? Yeah. Austrailia and New Zealand have clinics that are offering game or channel. Like, you said Andrew, this is this is really serious stuff. I I I had more than one opportunity to use IVA gain have the experienced. But I I've denied a turn it down every time because I know the formation going in and then the time afterwards, I never had. I I wanted to commit, you know, a significant amount of time because you know, I'm psyching not I've done a lot of different things..
