Podcast with Evan McMullen - Psychedelics, 5-MEO DMT & Abiding Awakening

Evan McMullen is an experienced meditation practitioner and psychedelic explorer, also known as a lecturer from The Stoa Youtube channel which Daniel also has guested a few times. He considers himself a "spiritual friend" rather than a teacher. 

In this podcast we talk about his "pretty freaking abiding" shift which occured back in 2005 around the time when he did a rather sensational experiment. Evan took extremely high daily doses of the highly potent psychedelic 5-MEO DMT for 90 days straight. He did, however, also spend a lot of time on retreats and in daily practice during that time. 

“I Lost Capacity to Be Bored”. He said he hasn't felt boredom in 6-8 years and goes into what he means about that. 

Evan has done thousands of psychedelic trips. For a 10 year period, on a given day, he said it was more likely that he was having a psychedelic experience than not.

It was fascinating to talk to someone who both is an experienced meditator, pragmatic dharma student and also has extended experience with psychedelic exploration. That's a sweet venn diagram spot if you ask me!

Enjoy our conversation. Looking forward to hear your thoughts on the podcast.

That was interesting. Good podcast, not convinced of his path but he says that up front.
