As psychedelics come back into mainstream awareness there is a growing understanding that the benefits of these substances occur as part of their integration into your life.
The Psychedelic Renaissance is simply the latest label for Western culture’s acceptance of expanded consciousness. Indigenous people across the world have been caretakers for psychoactive plants and substances that expand consciousness and return us to a relationship with the planetary intelligence we call ‘nature’.
How can we come back into right relationship with ourselves and with nature, the baseline reality we are embedded in? How can we know our place in the web of life?
Behind the unprecedented civilizational collapse we are living through, the earth herself is in a cyclical transformation fuelled by runaway global warming and species extinction. We are being forced to evolve or die – and we can feel in ourselves whether we are contracting and holding on, or letting go in these times of change.
You may have heard of the “Psychedelic Renaissance” and the return of mind-altering substances to the therapist’s toolkit, or the Decriminalize Movement’s reforms in cities across America to allow for the personal use of entheogenic plants and earth medicines.
