Recordings of Terrance McKenna

  • Many hours of McKenna speeches. Like Leary, Terrance McKenna was a well known psychadelic philosopher and shaman. Terrance McKenna is not as easy for newbie trippers to approach as Leary. In his books and lectures, he often takes on very difficult topics. Terrance was definitely a brilliant man. Thank God there are so many recordings of him... although his voice may take a little getting used to.

  • According to Dade Murphy, "I've found this practical guide to be very informative and accurate. (D.M.

Of course it leaves out a lot of points that more lengthy resources might go after."
