This blog is about culture and psychoactive substances and includes thoughts on the social, sensory, and ethical dimensions of shamanic practices and alternative religion. I also think and write about media and technology.

I have a PhD in anthropology. My PhD thesis involves an investigation of Australian practices of the traditionally indigenous Amazonian psychoactive drink ayahuasca.

I am a co-founder of the online ayahuasca learning hub, Kahpi (http://kahpi.net) and Chief Editor of the psychedelic plant-medicine outlet Chacruna (http://chacruna.net)
