Episode 27
Rak Razam: Psychedelic Elder & Man of Wisdom

December 22, 2023 • Free First Hour

I had the pleasure of meeting Rak Razam over ten years ago when he interviewed me for his podcast, In A Perfect World. I was taken by his warmth and generous spirit and impressed with his accomplishments in journalism, filmmaking, public speaking, and his intrepid spirit in exploring the psychedelic world. He is an elder voice in the psychedelic community and an inspiring and engaging speaker on the reverent use of these medicines and their potential to assist us in shaping our world for the better. 
In the first hour Rak discusses the revolutionary potential of psychedelics, touching on their possible co-opting by those in power who would utilize them as a kind of Soma for the masses. He speaks to the importance of cultivating a relationship with nature to where it is actually felt rather than simply mediated through technology, comparing the modern mindset to that of the traditional healers found in intact indigenous communities. He weaves his words thoughtfully and I know you will appreciate what he has to say. 
Hour two continues with more good words of wisdom on opening to a path of expansion, recognizing and responding to the needs of the planet and one's communities, and so much more. Rak brings so much to the table and I think you will very much enjoy this episode.

4th Annual Gaian Congress ONLINE
My Interview by Lesley Swope
of the Gaian Fairy Congress
Join me at the 4th Annual Gaian Congress annual event where all manner of spiritual beings connect and unite to co-create a better world. Based on over two decades of connection and co-creation with Spiritual Allies.
When: January 19-21, 2024
We gather LIVE, in real time, and although we are not together in physical space, the ability to see and hear each other does a remarkable job in weaving a strong energetic container for deeply transformative experiences. In gathering together, we create a powerful field which amplifies our abilities and sensitivities, building a stronger bridge across the dimensions.  This creates a more expansive connection and enables us to be more effective allies in co-creating with the Subtle realms. 
There are many online summits these days, each one with hours and hours of content, the Congress is about EXPERIENCE with the power to TRANSFORM, rather than content.
