Crypto and mysticism - video call this Sunday 1pm ET
I haven’t been writing here for a long time, missed it. I hope you are doing great!
Since I last wrote here in august, I spent two months in the Amazon forest doing my fourth dieta.
Instead of writing here as I came back, I enjoyed creating a what’s app group focusing on spirituality and exchanging learnings and experiences.
A few hundred friends joined the group and it became too big for what’sapp so we created a community on discord that we called “Synchronicity”.
It’s a wonderful place to meet other people thinking there is more than the eyes can see and experimenting with different forms of spiritual practices (meditation, fasting…). It’s a safe place where everything we share stays there and the content has been really interesting.
We are hosting weekly video calls in discord every Sunday 1pm ET (18h CET) and discovered through the contributions of everyone that many people interested in spirituality were also interested in crypto… Crypto is possibly a (risky) mean to become (more) financially independent and also many believe it’s an alternative to the current system so it feels natural in a way.
Daniel Pinchbeck and myself will be discussing with the group this upcoming Sunday crypto and consciousness…
Here is the call description:
On Sunday, Daniel Pinchbeck and Loic will lead a talk / discussion around cryptocurrency and psychedelic mysticism. What is the relationship between these two areas? DP feels unsure about crypto in general while Loic is a major supporter. There is no doubt that we need a transition from the current money system but crypto seems to support a lot of addictive behaviors similar to day-trading -- also there are concerns it may destabilize the nation-state without offering any coherent alternative. And what is the strange connection between crypto and psychedelic shamanism that we see with figures like Tim Ferris or Brock Pierce. What draws these two areas of experimentation together?
You are more than welcome to join the synchronicity community (download discord and join here) and join our call this Sunday, discord has a great integrated zoom like.
