DMT and the Nature of Spiritual Experience with Rick Strassman, MD

Rick Strassman, MD, is known for the DMT studies he did in the 1990s, but ultimately he’s interested in understanding the nature of spiritual experience and has dedicated his life to studying the Hebrew Bible as a way to gain insight into these experiences.  

In this episode, Rick discusses:

  • How DMT opens the user up to different realities 
  • The mysterious source of these experiences 
  • The importance of setting intention in the DMT experience
  • Psychosis vs. spiritual experience
  • The various models used to describe the DMT experience
  • What the DMT data reveals about achieving the enlightenment experience 
  • His transition from studying Zen Buddhism to the Hebrew Bible
  • The compared experiences of the prophets of the Hebrew Bible and the volunteers in his DMT studies
  • What he believes the ingredients are for making a person more suitable for divine influence
