Come on an Ethnobotanical exploration of sacred plant medicine. This class will be a study of different psychoactive herbs from around the world that alter consciousness and have played a role in influencing culture. Botany, pharmacology, and traditional practices will be discussed alongside a personal encounter through ingestion and meditation. We will explore the uses of entheogenic plants like Blue lily, Kava Kava, Mugwort, and Cacao for healing and spiritual development, and how to work with them at home.
