Mushroom Religions - How did they do it?
    #1684466 - 07/03/03 06:20 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Does anyone know where online I could get information about how the use of mushrooms was/is carried out in mushroom-oriented religions?

Mushrooms mix well with all religions.

Maybe druids and shamans do it more than others.

www.psychedelic-library.org
www.lycaeum.org
www.erowid.org
www.csp.org

I believe the Aztecs and Mayans, as well as several other Native American tribes used them in their rituals(they invented shroom chocolates).

check out Bemushroomed

read Mushrooms and Mankind by James Arthur

also, search the rites of Eleusis.

but i think it's up to us to re-create our own Mythos and method of inebriation.

Elvish- Indeed. I almost went with Daltrey in the tub of baked beans but I thought this one was pretty cool too.

What I'm trying to do is find a way to use entheogens as a spiritual practice like meditation or yoga. Perhaps in conjunction with one or both of those. I'd like to find out how religions which were/are "affiliated" with a psychedelic used the drug in their religious context. All of your suggestions are good ones, but might anyone know of a specific article or bit of information online that might contain the information I seek? Yes, I am trying to avoid doing the work of finding this information myself, and I'm only asking for anyone's help who might have a link near the tip of their proverbial tongue. Thank you!

mushrooms, morning glories, peyote cactus, etc. used by ancient mayans & aztecs
sanpedro cactus used by south american indians
ayahuasca (caapi) used by south american indians
tobacco used by indians in n & s america

there are links to this stuff at some of those websites that i listed, dude, & search engines like google will get you there as well...
& your local public library often has books (or can get them) under subject headings such as "halluncinogenic plants and religious experience" or some such...

If you're to lazy to find the information what makes you think you're going to be willing to pursue the religion?

Not lazy... well, ok maybe lazy too, but mostly just pressed for time. Very busy right now. Cool, nobody has a handy link, that's what I wanted to know. I'll check out the stuff you guys mentioned. Thanks!
