On Ethnography, Truffle Retreats, and Tracking Transformation
Greg Ferenstein is a nerd. And damn proud of it. In many ways, he is a modern-day Richard Evans Schultes, having explored the frontier of modern-day psychedelic use through his forays into legal psilocybin truffles in the Netherlands. But he’s also a maverick microdoser, tracking his every use with numbers, voice transcriptions, and specific integration practices.
It was a pleasure to have Greg over to my old office in Emeryville. We went for a short walk, found a comfortable place to sit down, and then proceeded to have an insightful and entertaining hour-long conversation.
- Learn why Greg Ferenstein is the modern-day Richard Evans Schultes, an ethnobotanist whose work in the early 20th century informed much of the modern movement around ayahuasca
- Why data only persuades if emotions agree – and how this relates to the microdosing phenomenon
- Greg’s easy-to-follow tracking routine for psychedelic use and how he integrates it for continued learnings and insights
