Notices, Workshops & Rides: FRR # 83 Terence McKenna, Sacred Plants as Guides: New Dimen
Free Range Radio; Terence McKenna, Sacred Plants as Guides: New Dimensions of the Soul, Part 1 Sunday Nov 9 2020, 730 – 930pm CKTZ 89.5 FM and cortesradio.ca.
I finished reading the Overstory, a novel by Richard Powers. It was a visceral experience. A love song to trees sung by the transformed psyches of 9 characters attempting to save the Red Woods of the west coast from corporate greed.
The book cracked open my perspective and imagination. How can I or we learn the language of the natural world and begin a conversation? My desire lead me to Terence McKenna.
Terence McKenna died in April 200. He is best known for his courageous forays into the dimension bending world of hallucinogenic plants and the medicine they bring.
His ‘free-wheeling, no thoughts barred’ character best represents what I want FRR to embody. Street smart humour combined with a galloping intellect, he never leaves you behind while propelling you far a field.
I don’t get a lot of what he says but I enjoy the workout. Sit back, crank open your mind, maybe light a little something or pour a glass of red and keep a pen paper ready, because we are going on a trip, McKenna style.
Keep rocking the Free World!
