This Funzing Experience:
In this talk Darren will explore ancient mythologies that connect the human entheogenic experience, the mythical Underworld and the ancient history of Easter ritual and ceremony. He will take you on a historical journey and look at the origins of these practices in ancient Africa, Mesopotamia and Europe and how they have became coded in several mythological entheogenic rites of passages throughout the ancient indigenous world.
