New paper out: Set and Setting in the Santo Daime

May 5, 2021

I’m incredibly proud to report my new paper Set and Setting in the Santo Daime was published yesterday by Frontiers in Pharmacology.

The new paper offers a high-resolution analysis of the multi-dimensional intricacies of the entheogenic experience in the Santo Daime ayahuasca religion, discussing many elements from the unique elements shaping expectation and intention, all the way to musical, visual and olfactory and kinetic factors, and leading to a discussion about all of the ways set and setting can go wrong in such a carefully calibrated environment.

I put a lot of work and thought into this one, and the paper should be interesting not just for people interested in Santo Daime. It presents a highly nuanced treatment that can provide a template for investigations of set and setting in many contexts.

The paper is open access. You can read it here, and I hope you enjoy it.
