Mind Meld 229 | The Immortality Key -- Die Before You Die with Brian Muraresku

This mind meld is sponsored by the mushroom alchemists at Four Sigmatic! Get up to 39% off their cognitive-boosting potions here.

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.”
