The birth of the Psychedelic Renaissance is often attributed to Richard Schultes' research on peyote and magic mushrooms in the 1930's. Nonetheless, it was his collaboration with both Gordon Wasson and Albert Hofmann that brought this indigenous wisdom and chemistry to a wider world. At the same time, the equally extraordinary contributions of Vale…
 
"Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of rum!” This immortal chant from Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic “Treasure Island” encapsulates much of the history of sugar and rum and the role they played not only in piracy, but also the rise of capitalism and slavery. This episode covers those issues as well as the underappreciated role these plant products played in t…
 
The much-heralded Psychedelic Renaissance began in 1938 when Harvard graduate student Richard Schultes traveled to southern Mexico to investigate reports that the Mazatec peoples were ingesting mind-altering mushrooms for healing and divinatory purposes. His findings led to further research in both the field and the lab by folks like Gordon Wasson …
 
My favorite excruciating tales of middle age. Hear about that time I dyed my beard, that other time I got a hair transplant, and that other time I got what I will call "The Big Snip". It's a lot of fun that the kids these days would call cringey.โดย Wil Boudreau
 
Palms- The Sacred Princes of the Plant Kingdom - In the words of the late ethnobotanist Richard Schultes, “A panorama does not seem tropical unless palms occupy a distinct and conspicuously visible part of the flora.” Although primarily associated with lowland rainforests, palms range as far north as Scotland and as high as 10,000 feet in the Andes…
 
Hemp—a fiber of the Cannabis plant—has played an outsized role in world history.

Here's a bonus track that didn't quite make it onto S2E2 Work, Work, Work. Recently I took some prospective clients on a tour of the home office space of my virtual ad agency. It didn't go quite as well as I'd hoped. Several of my kids, I mean younger staff are somewhat to blame.โดย Wil Boudreau
 
Social media provides pastors with an opportunity to speak to those inside and outside their congregations far more often than a Sunday morning sermon. Depending on the climate of Twitter or Facebook, that increase in available airtime can feel like a blessing or a curse. What is a pastor’s calling in the face of a blinking cursor and updated feed?…

Struggling to answer someone’s theological question about grief or pain. Walking into an elder meeting only to discover that half of the group isn’t on board with your plan. Realizing halfway through preaching that you really don’t know what you’re talking about. Are you shuddering yet? Scenarios like these can send chills down a pastor’s spine, an…

The idea that pastors are paid to pray, study, and even think can feel a little out of touch with our hyper-productive culture. The tyranny of the urgent can leave pastors wondering what it really means to serve their congregations, and if hours of meditating on Scripture should make the cut. On this episode of the Art of Pastoring, Ronnie Martin a…

To be human is to be limited, but sometimes pastors aren’t sure if they’re allowed to apply that truth to themselves.

On this episode of The Art of Pastoring, Jared Wilson and Ronnie M…

Opium – Perhaps the most ancient of the “Plants of the Gods,” plant remains in Europe clearly indicate that opium was being used by people more than 10,000 years ago.
