The Lives of the Dead

Some of the most interesting people I meet are dead…

Trippy, man

My husband has just become certified in somatic body work.  One of the things they learned was holotropic breath work which he said was positively trippy.   Coincidentally,  I am reading Michael Pollan’s excellent book, How to Change Your Mind, about the history of therapeutic psychedelics, both medical (mostly LSD and psilocybin) and shamanic (mushrooms and  ayahuasca).

Since I do not have access to any psychedelics,  I am going to try experimenting with holotropic breath work.   Have any of you readers tried it?  Any thoughts?  Experiences to report?  Please share!    Music/drumming is helpful in keeping the rhythm, so if you know of any good tracks,  I’d love to know about them.   Also:  a Vogue article

I will keep you posted…but as I might have mentioned previously,  we are moving in the fall, and right now, I am crazed with packing and all the other stuff involved with selling a home (actually two) and buying another.  No time to be trippin’!   Once we’re settled in,  I hope to have many new and interesting posts.   Thanks, as always, for your patience and indulgence.


Buy the book!
