Terence McKenna: Places I Have Been (1988)

Terence McKenna: Hermosa Beach, CA. 25th May 1988

Terence talking about Botanical Dimensions and his many travels. Botanical Dimensions is a non-profit organization dedicated to the collection and propagation of medicinal and shamanic plants from the tropics around the world. Of equal importance in their work is the gathering of folklore, methods and recipes concerning the traditional uses of such plants. Since the very beginning of humankind, the healing properties of the plant world have been invaluable in maintaining well-being of the body, mind and spirit. Cultures throughout the world have depended on medicinal and shamanic plants as the source of their physical cures and their spiritual guidance, yet many of these plants and their stories are now endangered or forgotten.
