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.”
