Terence McKenna (1946—2000) has been studying the ontological foundations of Shamanism and the Ethno-pharmacology of spiritual transformation for the past quarter century.
An innovative theoretician and spellbinding orator, Terence has emerged as a powerful voice for the psychedelic movement and the emergent societal tendency he calls The Archaic Revival.
Poetically dispensing enlightened social criticism and new theories of the fractal dynamics of time, Terence deobfuscates many aspects of the visionary lexicon, and then some. As Artist Alex Grey suggests, "In the twilight of human history, McKenna's prescription for salvation is just so crazy it might work."
Terence McKenna joined the ancestors at 2:15

"I'll try to be around and about. But if I'm not, then you know that I'm behind your eyelids, and I'll meet you there." Kona, September 1999
