Recently, I met Rick Doblin, founder of the Multidisciplinary Assocation of Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), for my research on the role of set and setting in the psychedelic debate of the 1960s. In this interview, Doblin discusses the current state and future of scientific psychedelic research.
For many years, Dimitri practiced a secular form of Iboga, which does away with religious

stressing its African roots. This changed radically after
he visited Gabon and participated in a Bwiti ceremony for the first time.
