Psychedelics, Easter & The Underworld
Date: Apr 01, 2021
Genesthai means "to come into being." Thus, an entheogen is a psychedelic drug that causes one to become inspired or to experience the god/ divine within, often in a religious or "spiritual" manner.
In this talk Darren Springer will explore ancient mythologies that connect the human psychedelic experience, the mythical Underworld and the ancient history of the Easter ritual and ceremony. He will take you on a historical journey and look at the origins of these practices in ancient Africa, Mesopotamia and Europe and how they have became coded in several mythological and psychedelic rites of passages throughout the ancient indigenous world.
Presenter and chair at the psychedelic conference 'Breaking Convention' London, the 'Detroit Entheogenic Conference' and numerous consciousness gatherings around the UK, Darren is a knowledgeable and dynamic speaker who is passionate about sharing his research on African entheogenic plants and their various applications.
