Featured Essay - Entheogens and the Mind of Society by James Jesso

When we asked James Jesso to write for us on the topic closest to his heart, we expected an essay defending the use of psychedelics from a highly-specialized perspective. Soon we received an essay much broader and more powerful in scope, and of interest to more than just the psychonauts among us. Entheogens and the Mind of Society cuts straight to the issues behind prohibition and the structures which prevent us from thinking for ourselves. At its core, this two-part treatise stands for freedom of the mind and the right to explore our inner topographies under the light of non-ordinary experience. Each part of the essay is available to read online, and you can purchase the essay in physical format from The Blasted Tree Store.
