Did you know every mammal including humans produces DMT naturally in their bodies? The same can be said for 1,000’s of plants.
I wanted to make sure you knew this before anyone wrote this off as a psychedelics or “drugs” conversation which is often the cultural association with DMT.
Right now there is a massive disconnect between mystical experiences and the world of Science. The gap is closing, but it often still feels like there’s these two camps who speak in different languages.
What we need is a bridge!
And that bridge just might be a greater understanding Dimethyltryptamine (DMT). You might have the heard of DMT because it’s the active psychedelic agent in things like Ayahuasca. But as I alluded too in the intro, it’s also produced naturally in every mammal and most plants! In fact, we have just as much DMT in our systems as serotonin.
John Chavez is the founder of DMTQuest which is an organization that is helping push forward the much needed research and education around DMT. Through financing studies and creating a media that educates and amplifies the potentiality of understanding this substance, he is helping us answer these questions.
John’s story is a fascinating one that in some ways mirrors my own. He had a radical and spontaneous mystical experience that redirected him to pursue answering and understanding the greater truths about the human experience.
