In a previous post, we discussed the value of nootropics as a tool in the neurohacker’s toolbox. They can help get us dialed in with laser focus and get things done. They can aid with concentration, learning, and memory. But productivity isn’t the only context for the human experience, and it would be sad if we shaped ourselves solely for the purpose of being more effective cogs in a machine. Neurohacking is just as interested in getting better at asking “why” and “what” as in building capacity around “how”.
Enter, psychedelics, empathogens, entheogens and ‘plant medicines.’ Though many of these chemicals are currently schedule-1 drugs in many countries, humans have been using them for thousands of years for healing, self-inquiry and visioning into the nature of reality. In fact, some propose that the evolution of human consciousness itself was catalyzed by the use of mind-expanding substances discovered or concocted by early man. If neurohacking is about upgrading the hardware our consciousness runs on, we would be remiss not to mention these technologies of altered states.
The rose tinted days of “tune in, turn on” are long past. Contemporary Neurohackers are exploring these chemicals for everything from accelerated learning to healing major trauma, reprogramming underlying associations that lead to habitual behavioral or thought patterns, shadow work, paradigm engineering, and, of course, the continued exploration of the nature of reality itself.
Below are some introductions to the ways these substances are being used in the neurohacking community.
But first, check out this short video by Jason Silva introducing MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies) and the concept of programming the psychedelic experience for therapeutic purposes.

If You're a Phoenix still in the Ashes
Right now you're being called forth to something new and greater in your life. You're at a crossroads and it's time to draw a line in the sand! It can be both a scary and exciting time. You can either take 5 steps back, continue to struggle, suffer, stay in the confusion or you can take powerful decisive action.
In these times motivation for change is higher, yet unfortunately our ability to make empowered decisions is lower. Many will want to hibernate or isolate themselves and the desire to fight, flee or freeze is very real. We feel anxiety and stress in our body and our emotions can be all over the place. Doubt is often high and FEAR is higher!
This can be a defining moment, this can be, "The Moment it ALL Changed" or just a pattern you continue to repeat.
Welcome to the pre-party three way... On this episode, we circle up on my living room floor to chat a bit before little house party to discuss how we got to where we are, allowing growth into our lives, profound changes fueled by the psychedelic experience, and how to get the most out of Burning Man.
