Additionally, Ball is an avid musician and visionary fractal artist. Ball has presented at MAPS, the Science and Nonduality Conference, the Spirit Plant Medicine Conference, Burning Man, Breaking Convention, EntheoMedicine, and more, and is regularly interviewed on multiple media platforms.
Martin W. Ball, Ph.D. is the author of over 20 books on entheogens and their transformative experiences. Few people have spent more time learning about and experimenting with 5-MeO-DMT as he has.
His books have become somewhat legendary reading in psychedelic subculture, revered for their depth of insight into these transformative substances as well as for their wonderful lucidity.
In this week’s interview – Martin’s first of 2019 – we spoke about his journey from a relatively obscure, unhappy suburban lifestyle, into an entheogenic odyssey of 50+ 5-MeO sessions and the profound spiritual awakening he has had along the way.
I asked him about some of the challenges of returning to the real-world following these experiences as well as how you can expect them to shape your life and perspective over time for the better.
We spoke about whether anyone or everyone should explore these experiences and left an open thread for you to contemplate for yourself.
Wonderfully articulate and measured, if you’re interested in learning more about psychedelics, this is a convo for you.
Martin is currently offering Non-Dual Entheogenic Integration consults via Skype. A new 10th anniversary color fractal art edition with of my book Being Human is also now available.
