Welcome to the Entheogenesis Australis (EGA) YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/entheotv). EGA and the contributors hope that this content helps you develop your knowledge on the subject of psychedelic plants, entheogens and states of consciousness.
The content presented here cannot cover all of the information and material regarding such a diverse and important area of study. It is simply a starting point to be used in conjunction with other source material and research to explore the discourse surrounding these compounds and their potential benefits. Some of the practices and ideas our speakers describe are embedded in cultural and religious traditions that may inform and possibly reduce the risks associated with their use. Research, due diligence and caution can also reduce the risks of exploring states of consciousness. Like skydiving or rock climbing, there are risks associated with these practices, but some significant benefits might be explored as long as the right safety measures, changes in laws relating to their use, and above all a mature approach to the subject, are in place.
The opinions offered here are not those of EGA directly, but rather of the speakers themselves. No matter how well informed you are, many of these substances remain risky without the proper preparation and setting and are still currently against the law in Australia. The information on our channel is not presented to encourage drug use or endorse illegal activity of any kind, but rather to offer a broad array of counterpoints to the mainstream notion that any and all use of psychedelic plants, entheogens and sacraments is detrimental to the mind, body and society at large. EGA supports a fact-based approach towards drug use, research and policymaking. We hope you find this information beneficial.
