Entheogen Use For Recovery
word entheogen is a modern term derived from two Ancient
Greek words, ἔνθεος (entheos)
and γενέσθαι (genesthai). Entheos literally means "god
(theos) within", more freely translated "inspired". The Greeks used
it as a term of praise for poets and other artists. Genesthai
means "to cause to be" or becoming. So an entheogen is "that
which causes God (or godly inspiration) to be within a person".
In its strictest sense the term
refers to a psychoactive substance (most often some plant matter with
hallucinogenic effects) that occasions enlightening spiritual or mystical
experience, within the parameters of a cult, in the original
non-pejorative sense of cultus. In a broader sense, the word "entheogen"
refers to artificial as well as natural substances that induce alterations
of consciousness similar to those documented for ritual ingestion of
traditional shamanic inebriants, even if it is used in a secular context.
