Aaron Rodgers Credits Psychedelic ‘Ayahuasca’ For the Best Season of His Career

Aaron Rodgers is totally into psychedelics.

The Green Bay Packers star QB says the secret to his recent resurgence is a psychedelic experience in South America he shared with some friends, claiming the ayahuasca plant helped him improve his mental health and have the “best season of my career.” Ayahuasca has been used socially and medically for centuries, with some giving the plant credit for spiritual healing.

The Super Bowl champ says it’s not a “coincidence” he returned from South America and won his next two MVP awards in 2020 and 2021.

“I think there’s so many myths and rumors about it,” Rodgers said on the “Aubrey Marcus Podcast.”

“The fear around it is, you’re going to s*** yourself, it’s just a big throw-up fest … but the negative framework of it is that is the experience, not the deep and meaningful and crazy mind-expanding possibilities and also deep self-love and also deep self love and healing that can happen on the other side.”

“I had a magical experience with the sensation of feeling a hundred different hands on my body imparting a blessing of love and forgiveness for myself and gratitude for this life from what seemed to be my ancestors,” he added.

“To be way more free at work, as a leader, as a teammate, as a friend, as a lover. I really feel like that experience paved the way for me to have the best season of my career.”

Rodgers says a previous experience with mushrooms led him to try ayahuasca.

Packers fans must be thrilled.
