Sidney Castillo is your host for the bumper final Discourse! episode of 2022! Join Sidney, Sharday Mosurinjohn, and Jordan Loewen-Colón to discuss some recent stories about religion and different altered realities. Sidney describes the use of ayahuasca among Peruvian indigenous peoples, and how this relates to animism–and COP27. Sharday Mosurinjohn talks about the founding of a new entheogenic church, and the prominence of religious language within the broader “psychedelic renaissance”. And finally, Jordan Loewen-Colón tells us about the use of VR to induce altered states of consciousness, which has earned the name “technodelics”.
