Spiro is a wandering mystic and poet who is putting together Consciousness Hacking events in NYC. Once a test subject for Dr. Strassman's DMT and psilocybin experiments in the 90's, Spiro was living with disdain for the world and eventually had a stroke which left him unable to speak. He had to relearn language and had new understandings of what language is and isn't through the help of his friends, and he saw a particular light that created new value to life. Enjoy today's episode where we explore consciousness, language, connecting and more.
