Terence McKenna And The Howling Tao’, a heartwarming tale of wishing to be understood


Produced for the movie ‘Terence McKenna’s True Hallucinations‘, this short animated story is a glimpse into the mind of a 23-year-old Terence McKenna, spending the March of 1971 in the middle of the Amazon jungle, already steeped in Sci-fi and Taoism, with an imagination ignited by the psilocybin mushrooms – some the size of dinner plates – Terence and his gang lucked upon.

The story is a reminder of what the Japanese Buddhist philosopher Dogen called ‘Not Doing Wrong Action’, which simply means, as Terence put it, ‘There is an appropriate way to do everything.’

It’s also a story about ‘Seeing is believing’, and the difficulty of making others perceive our reality.

CEO & Founder at Psychedelic Society and www.sociedelic.com. I created this community in 2013 shortly after finishing high school and have been grateful for the fact that I have been able to do this ever since :) There are many things happening on the planet that don't resonate with me, and I wanted to do what I could to play a role in creating change. It's been great making changes in my own life and creating awareness and I look forward to more projects that move beyond awareness and into action and implementation. So stay tuned :)
