Special Dossier Topic: Consciousness, plant drugs and yoga - a topic between intoxication and taboos
Plants are an important part of nature and can enrich human existence in many ways - whether as food, as a remedy in the classical sense or by feeding our consciousness with their energy. Patanjali already listed them as a means through which the mysterious siddhis can be attained. What experiences one can have with the help of plants, what is hidden behind the famous soma of the Vedas and what today's yogis think about herbal intoxicants is the subject of our dossier this time.
