How Magic Mushrooms Guided my Inner City Adolescence

“Fungi taught us a lot about ourselves growing up in the inner city. It gave us a lot of solutions and downloads for how to maneuver in the ghetto. It kept us out of trouble.“

Join us for Season 2 of Adventures of the Psyche: an exploration of the emerging frameworks and modalities that support the use of psychedelics.

In this episode we are joined by Cacique Antonio, who shares how mushrooms helped him and his friends navigate their teenage years in the inner city, and eventually put him on the medicine path as a guide for urban and international communities.

Antonio Cuevas is Cacique (chief) of a Yucayeke (an Afro-Taino village) in New York City. He is a medicine man with a strong Taino lineage, originally from the island of Puerto Rico. He is best known for his hands-on involvement in helping awaken his own community by uncovering their resilient strengths. He is a guide and practitioner and works with people one-on-one, in group settings, social and sacred medicine circles – locally, nation-wide, and throughout the world.

Join filmmaker and host Mareesa Stertz for a brief visit into other realms where guests share personal stories of illumination, healing, and transformation through their use of psychedelics. See more Adventure of the Psyche episodes here.
