Jonathan "Djinn" Thompson is a parent of 3, a special education teacher, and professional space holder. They have been involved in the psychedelic renaissance since 2011 and has been an explorer of hyperspace since the late 1990s. Jonathan has been the host of the Psychedelic Parenting Podcast since 2013. On Thanksgiving 2016, Djinn had a mushroom journey that profoundly changed the nature of their understanding of self and came out as genderqueer soon after. Today, Djinn is an activist for queer and feminist causes and is on the board of the Michigan Psychedelic Society.
In this episode we talk about Jonathan's journey through exploring their identity, and how psychedelics have played a role; the patriarchy - alive and well, or breathing its last breath?; integration of deep psychedelic experiences; being a weirdo; LGBTQIA+ topics and privilege in relation to the psychedelic word; coming into accountability for the shitty things we've done.
