People are looking for something deeper, to connect with a different side of themselves. The unseen, the unknown, even the shadow sides. With a desire to explore the reaches of their consciousness. Folks on this journey may want to find God or the existence of something beyond this world, beyond the third dimensional realty. Perhaps the journeyer is looking to heal a illness or pain relating to trauma or emotional pain as a result of PTSD or deep depression. There is no denying the world of entheogens/psychedelics is at an all time high. The most common forms of psychedelics are LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) peyote, san pedro, iboga, MDMA (methylenedioxy-methamphetamine) 5MEO-DMT, Ketamine, ayahuasca, psilocybin and cannabis. People are having huge experiences, going on retreats for weeks, months or years. Then return back home to their lives, children, families and jobs feeling completely different, in many cases not at all the same human. The transformation is underway, or perhaps the experience has not yet unpacked and the file in the INBOX of the subconscious. Waiting to be OPENED. Even if the experience is your first or 51st, the medicine and the consciousness of the plants are still working within the body, mind and spirit.
The talk and workshops provide a platform for the transformation to be supported in a way that promotes harm reduction and safe container so the participants can metabolize it. This is a huge part of the sacred reciprocity with these powerful plant teachers that is missing in many instances. The tools, remedies and practices presented are rooted in the ancient science of Ayurveda and samkhya philosophy. Over 5000 year old tradition Ayurveda is a complete science with its roots in India and Tibet. Today theses practices and lifestyle remain valid and applicable, they can assist the any person with their integration. The presenter with her vast background in western and amazonian plant medicine provides a unique set of lenses into healing and integration work.
