Psychedelic and plant [& fungi] a portal to transformative realms of possibility
While the mushroom provides us with plenty of useful metaphors, each psychedelic and plant medicine has its own unique spirit, and the molecules most aligned for one’s growth… we have all the necessary instruments at our disposal for a radical shift in human consciousness and the cultivation of a more harmonious human family.
Though I was once optimistic about our human potential to survive adverse experiences and thrive beyond them, my years of treating trauma within the confines of a limited and limiting mental healthcare system – combined with the increasing collective distress brought on by political unrest, gross inequality, climate crisis, and pandemic disease – have challenged my confidence. Despite mounting frustration, I hold out hope; and my commitment to finding creative solutions to the problems… I once read the words “Be careful where you are headed, or you may end up where you’re going” – a humorous but cautionary reminder of the importance of establishing an intention when doing any kind of healing work. We must first know why it is we are taking these… what it is we seek to heal, change, or understand about ourselves, our relationships, the universe.
