A Yonkee is hybrid between a junkie and a psychonaut... A "Dope Geek" in other words.
A person who doesn’t mind making his/her romance with
psychoactive drugs rather public by means of providing positive information about the spiritual use of shamanic/sacred plants
and other mind altering substances. They challenge
their fellow humans to ask themselves if "legal means safe" as a first step to question our belief systems.
Subjects to talk about with
a yonkee : music and arts, quantum physics, brain chemistry, shamanic practices, energetic fields & alternative medicine, anthropology, cognitive science, magical thinking
(causal reasoning that often includes such ideas
as the ability of the mind to affect the physical world)
Some of the most significant personalities
in the psychedelic community
Terence & Dennis Mckenna, Tim Leary, Daniel
Pinchbeck, John Major Jenkins, Alex
Grey, Joe Rogan, Nick Herbert, Aldous Huxley, Carlos Castaneda, Antonin Artaud, Bill Hicks, Richard Alpert
and Dr. Rick Strassman to name a few.
