In this episode of the podcast, Joe Moore interviews D.C.-based attorney and Executive Director of the Association of Entheogenic Practitioners (AEP), Danny Peterson. He discusses the work of the AEP, which he describes as similar to a bar association for practitioners in this space, with a code of ethics, best practices guide for facilitation, and efforts to continually improve the psychedelic-assisted therapy experience through what he calls “community building practicums.” They talk about where we are in the “forming, storming, norming, performing” process; psychedelics, religion, and freedom in the United States; the iron law of prohibition; the need for 10,000 entheogenic churches; and the classic questions we ask ourselves when analyzing our most powerful experiences and the communities we experience them in: Is this religious? Is this spiritual?
