Aaron Rodgers claimed the ayahuasca plant — a South American psychedelic — helped him win back-to-back MVPs in the 2020 and 2021 seasons. The drug is a proclaimed healing medicine, in which Rodgers explained helped him with self-love, healing, and mind-expansion.
“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–t 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 healing that can happen on the other side.”
Before Luke Getsy was the Chicago Bears offensive coordinator, he served as Aaron Rodgers’ quarterbacks coach with the Green Bay Packers from 2019-21.
Getsy made it clear that he had no involvement in trips to South America with Rodgers.
“I was not invited on those trips,” Getsy said with a smile. “I didn’t know all that stuff. I haven’t watched that yet but obviously I’ve been informed by a lot of people about that stuff. Whatever it takes, I guess.”
When asked whether or not Getsy would have accepted an invite from Rodgers, he walked off.
Getsy knows Rodgers very well, so he defintiely does not want to give him any extra motivation to destroy the Bears like he has done in years’ past.
Rodgers led the Packers to a 13-4 record but missed out on a Super Bowl appearance.
He had 4,115 passing yards and 37 touchdown passes last season with only seven interceptions. He hasn’t thrown 10 or more interceptions since 2010.
