The realms of plants and fungi provide us with life-sustaining nourishment, medicines for healing sickness, relief of pain, and delight for our senses with their color and fragrance. Mysteriously, they function as door-openers to the spirit world. They help us cleanse the lenses of perception and to know our place in the great web of life. Nature awareness deepens our experience of being alive, and the need to care of the world in which we live. How has our cultures discovery of psychedelic experience enhanced our sense of being nature and the responsibility that gift entails? What can we learn from the amazing plant teachers, the vines of visions, the mushrooms of magic? Where do we go from here?
Join us for a fascinating discussion between experts on psychedelic states, nature awareness and related ways of being. This event is A BENEFIT FOR BOTANICAL DIMENSIONS & GREEN EARTH FOUNDATION.
