  ENTHEOGEN : Awakening the Divine Within
Entheogen: Awakening the Divine Within is a feature length documentary which invites the viewer to rediscover an enchanted cosmos in the modern world by awakening to the divine within.
Entheogen invites the viewer to consider that the answers to these questions lie within the consciousness of each and every human being, and are accessible if only we give ourselves permission to awaken to the divine within.
Stan Grof, Marilyn Schlitz, Ralph Metzner, Alex Grey, Terrence McKenna, John Markoff, Daniel Pinchbeck, and Kat Harrison among others, postulate how the disenchantment of the modern world may be remedied by summoning the courage to take the next leap in the evolution of planetary consciousness.

  You Hip To The Entheogen Revolution?
A more straightforward label is entheogen, which literally means "generating the divine within." In laymen's terms, that means "becoming god." We could also go with a purely phenomenological description and call them "consciousness expanding agents" because that's what they do.

  Erowid Psychoactive Vaults : Term Definitions
Entheogen[ic] (literally 'becoming divine within') was derived from an obsolete Greek word describing religious communion with visionary drugs, prophetic seizures and erotic passion, and is cognate with the common word enthusiasm.
Entheogen[ic] has now become the primary term for shamanic inebriants in the Spanish-speaking world, and bids fair to become the predominant term for these drugs in the ethnographic and ethnopharmacognostical literature worldwide.
Although we have thus elegantly solved the problem of a culturally-appropriate, non-pejorative term to describe the context of use of these drugs, the phytochemists and pharmacologists have yet to agree on a term to categorize their pharmacological action.

 Entheogen-Diminishing Attitudes: New Age
The received view, which treats drug-free meditation/contemplation as favorably as possible, while diminishing entheogens as much as possible, is evil in that in practice, its main effect is to block and impede and prevent actual direct religious experience, substituting a placebo instead.
Entheogens are the *main*, not the only, way of triggering the religious state of cognition.
I now consider entheogenic esoteric religion to be primary, main, and dominant, and am less inclined to conceive of "mainstream, official, dominant, orthodox, Literalist" religion as being widespread.

 Maximal Entheogen Theory of Religion
The "purist entheogenic theory of the development of religions" holds that a religion was *during the main, central part of its history* about entheogen use rather than literalist concerns.
Entheogens are powerful, reliable, and widespread; people have every reason to make entheogens the center of religion, and no reason not to, except for reasons that are outside religion, such as moralism, social convention, and political contention.
The supernatural paradigm and the crackpot paradigm are not nearly as serious a threat to the entheogen theory of religion as the tepid, mediocre, middle-level popular "spirituality" that's as empty and misguided as liberal Protestantism's reduction of religion to mundane ethics.

 MAPS: In Defense of "Entheogen"
Nevertheless, for several reasons “entheogen” is, imo, a far, far better term than “psychedelic.”; First, although Osmond’s original notion of labeling such substances “mind manifestors” was a good one, the term has been pejorated to the extent that it will never regain its original purity.
The relatively egoless state that entheogens somehow produce appears abnormal to this egocentric form of consciousness, and it is in the relatively egoless state that we perceive ourselves to somehow be spiritually reborn as Gods.
By accepting and using “entheogen,” rather than “psychedelic,”; we are essentially pushing the envelope of these two opposing world views, by calling into question their very foundations.
