is the TS anti-initiatory?

An additional thought, my being against drug usage for most people does not
include priests/priestesses in shamanic rites.  These are people who have
gone through preparations that enables them to handle and use powerful
hallucinogens for contact with their spiritual nature.  I think that most
people in this modern day and age are woefully unprepared.  I see several
good-intentioned people go awry with this.  As I said, it mostly turned out
to be hedonistic instead of spiritual.  Plus, any brief contact with their
spiritual nature did not produce any long term result.  I certainly would
not consider them to be anywhere closer to arhat-hood.
