This is part 2 of the Jungle talks series, recorded during my time in the Peruvian Amazon. 

This talk is with my good friend Adam. 

Adam is a psychologist, cognitive scientist and medical anthropologist, he has also studied traditional systems of medicine in Mexico, India and Peru, adopting a dialectical approach that integrates and unites evidence-based science and traditional worldviews. He has worked extensively in western psychiatric institutions and has spent time learning from a variety of indigenous and traditional healers around the world, trying to understand the diverse manifestations. conceptualizations of and approaches to mental illness and mental health.

Balancing between research and practice, he is an active member of the “Medical Anthropology Research Center” (MARC), and the “Interdisciplinary Psychedelic Studies” (IPS) group, both in Catalunya, while sharing his extensive experience facilitating transformational processes in a variety of psychedelic support and harm-reduction projects around the world, such as the Kosmicare Project in Portugal or the Zendo Project in the United States.

Adam is an advocate for cognitive liberty, neurodiversity and the integration of non-ordinary states of being into our culturally constructed definitions of normalcy and sanity, with a growing interest in the ecological and environmental dimensions of mental health and the importance of reciprocity, mutuality and interdependence to our well-being. Adam is currently the Research and Communications coordinator, conducting ethnographic fieldwork for a few collaborative research projects while sharing the magic happening behind the scenes at the Temple and with the wider community.
