Ayin’s columns offer a platform for contributing editors to curate work inspired by and engaging with a particular theme or form. Our first column is an exploration of the fringes and potential futures of Jewish spirituality, curated by journalist Madison Margolin.
Speaking from Experience
Speaking from Experience, edited by Madison Margolin, features in-depth conversations with artists, scientists, mystics, healers, activists, and fringe thought leaders who engage with a wide range of paradigm-shifting encounters. From psychedelics to somatics to cybernetics, these experiences speak to and beyond the growing edges of Jewish life and culture, revealing ancient and emergent connections between self, community, earth, and cosmos.
In the first installment of Speaking from Experience, Madison Margolin interviews MAPS Global Impact Officer Natalie Lyla Ginsberg on the roots and possibilities of Jewish psychedelia.
Why do our brains naturally make DMT? Does psychedelic science prove the existence of God? Where do psychedelic experiences and stories of the Torah intersect? In this interview, we cover these questions and more with renowned psychedelic researcher Rick Strassman.
