Brian Muraresku is the bestselling author of The Immortality Key: The Secret History of the Religion with No Name. It's a vast, highly entertaining investigation of the use of visionary substances in the ancient world and, more deeply, what spirituality really was to our ancestors.

In this mind meld, we riff on--

  • Ancient initiatory traditions like the Eleusinian and Dionysian mysteries.
  • The lost art of greek contemplative practices
  • Why modern religions have largely become inert
  • How to connect back to the numinous directly
  • Was the original eucharist psychedelic?
  • Why the secret of it all is to “die before you die.”
