  1. The award-winning documentary, ‘From Shock to Awe’ shines light on the use of cutting-edge psychedelic medicines to treat mental illness in war veterans. The Australian Psychedelic Society (APS) is premiering the documentary across Australia with a panel of guest speakers, thanks to sponsorship from Vasudhara, Psychedelic Research in Science & Medicine (PRISM) and Aadii Mesh Foundation. BACKGROUND In 2018, an alarming report published by the Department of Veterans Affairs shows the impact of service on the mental health of veterans, with 46 percent of veterans who left the Australian Defence Force (ADF) experiencing a mental disorder within 5 years. The most common problem is anxiety, with one in three veterans saying they experienced symptoms. The other common illnesses were post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD; 18 percent), panic attacks (17 percent) and depression (12 percent). Suicide also represents a major issue, with one in five veterans experiencing suicidal thoughts, plans or attempts. For males under 30, the completed suicide rates of veterans who left service are 17 percent above the national average (graph taken from the ABC). PSYCHEDELIC MEDICINES - A NEW FRONTIER IN MENTAL HEALTH After more than 50 years of dormancy, a new psychedelic revolution is taking place. Initial studies show that psychedelic drugs, including ayahuasca (traditional amazonian brew), psilocybin (magic mushrooms) and MDMA have profound effects in alleviating mental illness. They also work in a vastly different manner to traditional psychiatric medications. Neuroscientist, Dr Dean Wright states that “Traditional psychiatric medications, such as antidepressants require daily use, have many side-effects, and are not much more efficacious than placebo. In contrast, psychedelic therapies require between one and three doses in total, with effects lasting up to four years after the final dose.” St Vincent’s Hospital, Melbourne and Psychedelic Research in Science & Medicine (PRISM) have launched an Australian first clinical trial using psilocybin to treat anxiety and depression associated with a terminal illness. In the USA, MDMA-therapy for PTSD has been designated a “breakthrough treatment” by the FDA. It appears imminent that these therapies will be approved as medicines. FROM SHOCK TO AWE The film follows veterans, Matt Kahl and Mike Cooley, through their challenging post-war lives, shattered by the trauma of war. It also explores the impact on their wives, Aimee and Brooke. The vets struggle with anxiety, fear, depression, anger, unable to find equilibrium with society and with their families. After confronting death multiple times, our heroes set out on a journey to treat their mental illness with Ayahuasca and MDMA. “I tried everything...all the medications, EMDR, exposure therapy, talk therapy, group therapy and the truth is, none of it worked. It was ruining my family,” says Veteran Matt Kahl. Brooke Cooley goes further stating, “Ayahuasca and MDMA saved me, my husband and my family. Had psychedelic therapy not come into our lives, not only would Mike and I be divorced, but there is a solid chance that one or both of us wouldn’t be alive.” FILM SCREENING & PANEL DISCUSSION The Australian Psychedelic Society will host the Australian premier screening of ‘From Shock to Awe’ across 5 cities. Following the film there will be a Q&A with Mitch Schultz, the film’s Transmedia Producer and Major Steve McDonald, an Australian war veteran who utilised psychedelic medicines to successfully treat his depression and PTSD.

  2. Hey Folks, Have you checked out this cool ayahuasca science course yet? It's especially interesting if you're into the neuroscience and psychology of ayahuasca. http://courses.kahpi.net/courses/ayahuasca-science/
  3. Cool short video on ayahuasca neuroscience and shamanism. [media]

  5. A couple of new tunes I've been working on. A lot faster and more detailed than any of my past electro tunes. Feel free to offer advice or criticisms and if anyone could tell me how to properly embed Soundcloud files I'd love to know how it's done (the standard embed codes don't seem to work).

  6. Hi yo'all. It's been a strange and busy year has it not? I've neglected this section of the site for a while and am looking forward to checking out all your sights and sounds imminently. In the meantime here's a taste of some things I've been working on. Synchrotron Pt I - Dissassembled (Seizure step) https://soundcloud.com/xenodimensional/synchrotron-pt-i Toadstool Sample (Psygressive) https://soundcloud.com/xenodimensional/toadstool-sample An impromptu clip of my VJing style set to Toadstool Sample. Watch in HD if possible, it loses a lot of detail otherwise.
  7. The DVD is readying to go live: http://www.aya-awakenings.com/watch.html AYA: Awakenings is a documentary journey into the world and visions of Amazonian shamanism, adapted from the cult book 'Aya: a Shamanic Odyssey' by Rak Razam. As Razam sets out to document the booming business of Amazonian shamanism in the 21st century, he quickly finds himself caught up in a culture clash between the old world and the new. Braving a gringo trail of the soul, he uncovers a movement of ‘spiritual tourists’ coming from the West for a direct experience of the multi-dimensional reality shamanism connects one to. Central to this is ayahuasca – the “vine of souls” – a legal South American entheogenic plant medicine that has been used by Amazonian people for millennia to heal physical ailments and to cleanse and purify the spirit, connecting it to the web of life. Western seekers also experiment with smokable dimethyltryptamine (DMT), and the juxtaposition of these two sacraments, and the way they are used by Westerners, is a central theme of the film. In researching the mystery of ayahuasca, Razam undergoes his own shamanic initiation, undergoing numerous tests and trials in the jungle and the psychic landscapes the vine reveals. On the way he encounters a motley crew of characters, from rogue scientists that conduct DMT-brain scans on jungle psychonauts to indigenous and Western shamans that slowly unravel his cultured mind and reveal the magical landscape of the spirit world. And the more he drinks this potent jungle medicine the deeper it leads him: from the wet jungle where the ayahuasca vine grows and on into the raging heart of consciousness itself. His journey culminates in the Sacred Valley of the Andes, where secrets of the ancient Incas are revealed to him and the true nature of the global resurgence in shamanism is brought to light. By blending narration directly from the book with video footage, interviews with practicing curanderos, samples of traditional icaros or magic songs, photographs and cutting edge special effects, AYA: Awakenings reproduces the inner landscape of the visionary state in unprecedented detail, invoking an awakening in the viewer. Featuring the artwork of Pablo Amaringo, Andy Debrenardi and more; written by Rak Razam and directed by Tim Parish, video editing by Verb Studios, soundscapes by Lulu Madill and music by Shpongle, Tipper, Darpan, Lula Cruz, Syren and curanderos Norma Panduro, Guillermo Arevalo, Percy Garcia Lozano, Ron Wheelock and Kevin Furnas, this documentary charts the Global Shamanic Resurgence born in the jungles of Peru and reaching out to embrace the world.
  8. Hey guys and gals, Am stoked to present my website which tries to show something different within the psychedelic art scene. I try to steer away from repetitive patterns and move straight into novelty. I am totally still learning and starting out, but I am busting my balls in trying to develop new visual tastes that reflect specific moments of visual psychedelia. I am interested in the theory that accompanies pieces, so its not just splashy colour. Each piece is a different code that is unique to itself. It is self-reflexive and talking to itself in the work. This starts a visual loop cycle. There is no ideology - no thing is made to look like any thing. This allows you to start the hallucination process within a contained space. You start to link bridges with other bridges, finding startling results and intricate story lines. It is not abstract art as I am showing specifically this trait. It is hallucinatory realism. It is without an over-riding storyline on top. Patterns are only ever referenced never shown - allowing you to absorb into the novelty of it. Please have a browse around, as I feel this is the community who would be open to new and subtle details of visual language which can only be evoked by those who have seen the world unbound. www.liamkey.com There are 3 other sites that are in the works. One is totally dedicated to being a research portal for artists in the context of Acacia use. www.acaciaarts.com (still being made) And another for anyone who would like to be involved www.theaustraliens.com (still being made). This site will focus on the website design being the art piece. Currently up is www.valleyofnovelty.com which is a randomly loading "gallery". Any psy artists can submit their works to be loaded into the novelty machine. I realise that all my shit is totally at a half way stage, but I am preparing to do a PhD in the field next year. I have a degree and Masters, and have been blocked by an ethics comittee at a University in QLD. I would really like to steer this artistic movement in a very progressive direction. One being to refine the work made to becoming research standard, thus allowing visions captured by artists to adhere to a strict protocol to enhance decipherment. There are many pitfalls when trying to transcribe a vision, and this is why it is just dumped with other design art pieces. More is being described in
