Aaron Rodgers’ ayahuasca trip was new for his former quarterback coach.
Luke Getsy, who became the Bears’ offensive coordinator earlier this year after three years as the Packers’ QB coach, was questioned on Friday about Rodgers’ use of the psychedelic drug, which Rodgers revealed on Wednesday on the “Aubrey Marcus Podcast”.
“I wasn’t invited on those trips,” Getsy said with a smile, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. “I didn’t know all that. I haven’t watched it yet but obviously I’ve been told by a lot of people about it. Whatever it takes, I guess.
Rodgers was in Peru with then-girlfriend Danica Patrick when he took ayahuasca, a psychedelic tea containing DMT. He said the trip led to him having the “best season” of his NFL career.
In 2020, Rodgers threw for 4,299 yards, 48 touchdowns and just five interceptions while completing 70.7% of his passes en route to NFL MVP honors. He repeated as NFL MVP last season.
“My intention the first night was that I wanted to feel what pure love is. It was my intention and I did it. I really did it,” Rodgers said on the podcast of his trip to ayahuasca.” I had a magical experience of feeling 100 different hands on my body giving me a blessing of love and forgiveness for myself and gratitude for this lifetime from what seemed to be my ancestors. I came back and the pandemic hit.
Rodgers and Patrick separated in July 2020.
