The Teaching of Experience

an interview with Stephen Gray

Stephen-GrayIn this week’s episode Stephen Gray speaks with Joanna about: an all-embracing  journey from Tibetan Buddhism to the Native American Church; out of isolation, into reality; psychedelic medicines are non specific amplifiers; as present as possible, moment by moment; the importance of community and practice; trusting the now; the never-ending path; the special role of the Iboga medicine; the open-hearted, “don’t know mind”; rediscovering the use of cannabis in spiritual practice; MDMA, a gateway to the heart; Western elders can now teach from experience.
