“It is nobody’s business to judge anyone’s form of ceremony, spiritual perspective, lineage, politics, or opinions.” -Jonathan Goldman of Santo Daime Church in Oregon
Generally in terms of safety and long term mental health, responsible entheogenic communities provide a safe container for participants while also providing ongoing integration, peer support and care. The antidote to depression is connection, and ingesting medicine regularly in a community is as important as the medicine itself for many people, in many ways superior to the “one and done” therapeutic model… giving more freedom and leeway to sincere entheogenic communities, religious or otherwise, to safely practice and heal… and have the option to grow their own different varieties of psilocybin mushrooms cost-effectively… Oregon has the opportunity to open access in a cost-effective way for people to engage someday soon with psychedelic healing in the comfort of their own spiritual lineage and community… the most economically affordable, which is crucial that we make sure this healing is available to all who can benefit regardless of their relative affluence.
