Folktales offer insight into a culture's worldview. With all the current interest in psilocybin and Magic Mushrooms, we must remember that the key knowledge-holders for centuries have been the indigenous Mazatec people of southern Mexico. Beneath their ritual practices lie generations of stories about how their world came to be, and how their world works in spirit and nature. Kathleen Harrison has collected written and oral stories over 24 years of field work among the Mazatecs. Come spend an afternoon in our unique library, as you listen to her read translated stories and share her perspectives.|
Date: Sunday, September 8 - 3-6pm
Location: Botanical Dimensions Ethnobotany Library, at the Occidental Center for the Arts - Occidental, CA
