He has been active in the field of psychedelic studies for more than fourteen years, having done an M.A. thesis and Ph.D. dissertation that developed the concept of “entheogenic education,” a theoretical frame for understanding the kinds of learning that can be realized through the circumspect uses of psychedelics as cognitive tools.
