Prerecorded May 31, 2010 by http://GnosticMedia.com - an Interview with James WFE Mooney and Dr. Robert T. Beckstead. Join James and Dr Beckstead LIVE on February 17th in this time slot.
This show is titled "The Mormons: Joseph Smith’s Psychedelic Voyage" and was being released on Monday, May 31, 2010.
James Warren Mooney personally represents all of Oklevueha Native American Church independent branches; including Oklevueha Native American Church of; Navajo, Paiute, Cherokee, Chippewa, Lakota Sioux, Narragansett Nations (led by federally recognized card caring American Native persons) as well as 45 Utah Oklevueha Native American Church independent branches. His list of acolades is more than 10 pages long, so for today I’m going to keep it brief.
Robert T. Beckstead, MD has practiced as a board certified emergency physician for 32 years with training in hypnosis from the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis and Jungian dream analysis from Pacifica Graduate Institute. His interest in the possibility that Joseph Smith used psychedelic plants, cactus, and mushrooms to facilitate visionary experience and spiritual ecstasies arises from readings in Mormon history and his emergency medicine practice. This includes training and experience in diagnosing the class of hallucinogen intoxication from its manifesting symptoms (toxidrome) and the administration of Ketamine as a powerful dissociative anesthetic for painful procedures in the emergency department. Dr. Beckstead is Affiliate Faculty, Idaho State University Portnuef Medical Center, Department of Emergency Medicine, Pocatello Idaho.
