Welcome to Palenque Norte
your source for brain candy in MP3 format.
The pool at the Chan Kah in Palenque

     Our journey began with the legendary Entheobotany Conferences held at the Chan Kah hotel near the ancient Mayan ruins just outside of Palenque, Mexico. There, Terence McKenna, Jonathan Ott, Ann & Sasha Shulgin, and a host of other psychedelic luminaries passed along many insights, discoveries, and wild tales to the fortunate Tribe members who were there. And it was at the end of the pool where Terence McKenna gave some of his last talks at the Chan Kah.


Then in 2003, a few alumni from those conferences decided to have a "Palenque reunion" at the Burning Man Festival, and so we organized a theme camp and lecture series to continue the Palenque tradition.

Today, PalenqueNorte.org, is the place to find interesting talks on such topics as:

  • “The Future of Psychedelic Research”
  • “Drug Inspired Metaphysical Concepts”
  • “The Day the Universe Becomes Conscious”
  • “Waking Up from the American Dream”

We hope you will come back from time-to-time and listen to our latest postings of MP3s like these. . . . Better yet, subscribe to our PodCast channel , the Psychedelic Salon (it's free!). Then our new programs will be automatically downloaded to your iPod or computer each time we post a new PodCast. . . . Welcome to the future!
