In this episode, we speak with Robert Forte editor of Entheogens and the Future of Religion, The Road to Eleusis, and interviewer of Timothy Leary: Outside Looking In. We discuss his work as well as his relationship with Timothy Leary, and what he thinks of the future of entheogens.
Robert Forte, AMRS, began his work with psychedelics as a student of Stanislav Grof and Frank Barron, co-founder of the Harvard Psilocybin Project. He obtained his master’s degree under Mircea Eliade and has collaborated with many of the leaders in the field of psychedelics, including Gordon Wasson, Timothy Leary, and Huston Smith. A former director of the Albert Hofmann Foundation, he teaches at the California Institute of Integral Studies.
He is also the author of Entheogens and the Future of Religion which examines ancient and modern uses of psychedelic drugs, calling for the safe and legal availability of entheogens for spiritual seekers. Includes contributions by Albert Hofmann, Terence McKenna, Rick Strassman, R. Gordon Wasson, and Jack Kornfield.
