Bloom Podcast: Psychedelics´╗┐ Panel Discussion

This episode is an insightful panel discussion about psychedelics, recorded at Imagine Festival on Orcas Island in September 2015. Moderator and panelists: Rick Ingrasi, Donna Dryer, Richard Yensen, and Magenta Ceiba. Some of the topics we touch on include the legal history of psychedelics, possibilities for intergenerational collaboration, and the different types of settings people can create for their trips. We also describe several entrypoints for receiving training in therapy for altered states. This panel is rich with wisdom and experience, and we hope you enjoy it!

Older Podcast Episodes

Here are older episodes of the Bloom podcast from when we were called Evolver Network.

From Shock to Awe

Interview with filmmaker Janine Sagert, the director of Veterans for Entheogenic Therapy, Ryan Compte, and Saj Razvi, director of Trauma Dynamics .

From Shock to Awe is a feature-length documentary that chronicles the journeys of military veterans as they seek relief from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder with the help of ayahuasca, MDMA (“Ecstasy”), and cannabis. It takes an intimate look at how these substances can be used to heal our wounded warriors—and, by extension, their loved ones.

Our intention with this film is to raise awareness of the healing properties of, and help change the laws regulating, ayahuasca, MDMA, and cannabis so that these substances can be legally available for responsible use in therapeutic, and spiritual, settings—especially for veterans with PTSD. Because we believe that all vets have a right to choose their own path to healing.

Water Cycles

Interview about hydrology with Evolver Sporeganizers Andrew Stocker, a geologist from Santa Fe New Mexico, and Jacob Aman, a researcher working on toxic cleanup projects near Santa Cruz, Silicon Valley and the surrounding region. We cover:

  • How the Earth’s water cycles work
  • What dangers we face with the current ways people and governments manage waterways
  • How water management is complicated because it crosses so many legal jurisdictions
  • And we even touch on… space weather!
