In a recent video when asked about weed and psychedelics, Matt Kahn said that those substances only change our perception because they change our breathing.

And yes it makes sense giving that we can experience psychedelic states through breathing exercises.

But I would like to know if you've heard any teachings that you can share or have an opinion on that?

Very curious!

Thank you for reading.

Classic gross reductionism. Of course there are changes in breathing and brain chemistry that correlate with a psychedelic trip but to reduce that whole experience down to some physiological changes is just ignorant.

It's the classic "we will be able to explain the whole universe once we zoom a bit deeper into atoms" scientific blindness.

@OBEler it depends how I'm feeling. I take psilocybin honey almost every day with weed before my daily practice. Like half a tablespoon. Not a big amount but not a microdose either.

I've been doing yogic work for several years now and I've had breakthroughs but when I started adding psilocybin my progress just shot through the roof and I keep improving to this day. It really is amazing.

@OBEler more like Qi-Gong but Kriya Yoga would work just as well. Basically you're searching deep inside yourself with your breath. Gut mining is a good way to describe it.

I start as soon as I've had my bong, the psilocybin takes abit to kick in.

There is tolerance but it resets quickly if you take a break.

Going for a run changes breathing too :D

It changes everything. Breathing is one thing.

Breathing is love!!!:D

Wanted to beat my man Michael Jackson from saying this first!!

You are a selfless LACK OF APPEARANCE, that CONSTRUCTS AN APPEARANCE. But that appearance can disappear and reappear and we call that change, we call it time, we call it space, we call it distance, we call distinctness, we call it other. But notice...this appearance, is a SELF. A SELF IS A CONSTRUCTION!!! 

So if you want to know the TRUTH OF THE CONSTRUCTION. Just deconstruct the construction!!!! No point in playing these mind games!!! No point in creating needless complexity!!! The truth of what you are is a BLANK!!!! A selfless awareness....then that means there is NO OTHER, and everything you have ever perceived was JUST AN APPEARANCE, A MIRAGE, AN ILLUSION, IMAGINARY. 

Everything that appears....appears out of a lack of appearance/void/no-thing, non-sense (can't be sensed because there is nothing to sense). That is what you are, and what made of that. So nonexistence, arises/creates existence. And thus everything is solved.
