About our Speakers
Diana Reed Slattery, PhD, is a novelist, scholar, psychonaut, and video performance artist. She completed her Ph.D. work in psychedelics and language in 2010 at the University of Plymouth, UK.
Natalie Metz, ND, is in private practice in San Francisco and also pursuing graduate studies in philosophy, cosmology, and consciousness, where her research is guided by a love of plants, healing arts philosophy, and conscious exploration of the therapeutic potential of entheogenic experiences.
Mr. Brian Wallace - Brian's passion for ethnobotany led him to chocolate, aka Theobroma cacao, which translated from Latin literally means "the food of the gods". Through years of courses and travels around the globe, Brian learned to couple his love for sacred & medicinal plants with the technical savvy requisite to produce artisan chocolate, which is currently what you'll find him doing nearly every waking moment. Brian believes in nourishing the mind, body, and spirit through all things cacao, and his current mission in life is to spread the chocolate gospel everywhere he goes.
