What we're about
This is a discussion group for those serious about their inner journey and about addressing obstacles or issues in their lives that may be obstructing their path to personal happiness and fulfillment. It's also for people in preparation for a medicine journey like ibogaine or ayahuasca and particularly those who are seeking to integrate their own entheogenic journey(s) into their daily lives.
We provide a safe, relaxed and comfortable space for sharing with no pressure or expectations. Confidentiality is of great importance and your sharing here is not intended to travel beyond the circle.
Meetings are the last Friday of every month. We share our own inner experiences, questions, and wisdom about the entheogenic journey, ways to prepare for it, set, setting, and intention, one's own spirituality meeting the experience and what that's like, healing, and how it happens, navigating a good trip and a bad trip, the arc of growth post-journey, metaphysical goals, the archetypal journey, sacred geometry, language and consciousness.
Entheogenic integration, is, I believe integral to our individual and societal health, so we've starting this meet-up to help spread the word and share best practices, knowledge, narratives and community around entheogens. I deliberately use the term entheogen instead of psychedelic because the word means 'generating God within' and this is the aspect of what these medicines can do for us that is so profoundly transformative and needed in our society. I believe 'integration' is a three-fold idea: 1) integrating a single journey, 2) integrating many journeys over a long period of time, 3) integrating the use of these substances in our own spirituality, culture, and world in a legal and safe way.
WHERE YOUR DONATION GOES: Absolute financial transparency is our policy. All fees collected go directly to the Taoist Sanctuary space rental fee.
$50.00 --- Taoist Sanctuary once monthly meeting fee.
$90.00 --- 6 month Meetup membership fee. (absorbed by organizer)
This totals 390.00 for 6 months of meeting once a month or 65.00 per month out of pocket cost. Our goal is to host a minimum of 5 members at 10.00 a meeting. At each meeting I will match or exceed the nights donation to make the space rental fee. Please understand I'm doing this for the love, not for profit. This group exists because of my belief in the importance and validity of this sacred medicine. If we reach 10 regular guests, donations will be reduced to 5.00.
Sliding donation scale:
$10.00 --- 1-5 attendees (host included).
$ 8.00 --- 6 attendees (host included).
$ 7.00 --- 7 attendees (host included).
$ 6.00 --- 8 attendees (host included).

Please note, this is a conversational meet-up only since many of these medicines are still scheduled in this country.
