Watch Dr. Bruce Damer explain "The History of Palenque Norte" in this short 15 min video.
The Palenque Norte 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.
Years later, then in 2003, a few alumni from those conferences decided to have a "Palenque reunion" at the Burning Man Festival, and so they organized a lecture series to continue the Palenque tradition.
