This Episode of The Psychedelic Salon Podcast is a must hear for any student of McKenna or casual listener alike. There are some home truths and insights into Terence that will come as a surprise to many and has made me begin listening to these talks again with this information and light shone on McKenna the person, for me it makes him all the more human, conflicted and complex a character... one of us.
Lorenzo ends the podcast with the great news that more tapes (over 160!) will be digitized and aired on The Psychedelic Salon in the coming months, so get yourselves over there and support the Podcast.
Much love, thanks and respect to Lorenzo, Bruce, Dennis and Kat for sharing this with us.
This program is a recording of part of a live event at the Esalen Institute near Big Sur, California. The workshop, titled "Terence McKenna: Beyond 2012", was led by Bruce Damer and Lorenzo Hagerty. This specific recording took place on Saturday morning, June 16th and consists of Bruce's "deep dive" into the mind of McKenna. It begins with Bruce's "Ode to Terence" and is followed by Bruce's readings of parts of the soon-to-be published book by Terence's brother, Dennis . . . the book's title: "Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss".
