Dennis McKenna

Of the many problems we face on this planet, one man is sure that the solution resides in our reconnection with Nature. Dennis McKenna has, for many years, utilized his background in science and academia to discover and teach others about the potential of both psilocybin and ayahuasca—two psychedelic drugs that show promise in the areas of mental health, end of life care, and addiction. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia in 1984, taught courses at the Center for Spirituality and Healing at the University of Minnesota, and moved on in 2017 to found the BC-based McKenna Academy for Natural Philosophy, a “modern mystery school” with a primary mission of education. The McKenna Academy, says Dennis, will be the first psychedelic university in 1500 years.
