In this second part of our interview with Dr. Kirby Surprise on Synchronicity, he delves into topics which he refrained from putting in his Synchronicity book. This episode is about his personal views and mythology around spirituality, synchronicity, shamanism, ayahuasca and magic.
Dr. Kirby Surprise on Ayahuasca and Synchronicity
Trained as a Ayahuascero in Peru and having a PhD in clinical Psychology puts Dr. Kirby Surprise in a unique position of being a sort of a licensed shaman.
He explains that psychedelics are a general amplifying tool and talks about the ways they can be beneficial, but also harmful and even deadly to neurons when done too much or with the wrong set and setting.
Dr. Kirby Surprise explains how different types of mind altering substances affect our ability to produce synchronicities, and how to use them to connect to our subconscious.
The conversation continues into the beneficial effects of MAOI compounds like harmine on mood disorders and ageing.

“The original studies of people taking Ayahuasca in Peru found that the populations that were taking it were healthier physically, emotionally, and better psychologically organized than the matched control groups.” – Dr. Kirby Surprise
