A Conversation about Sexuality, Intimacy, Ethics, and Psychedelics with Arielle Brown advance tickets - http://tamintegration.com/event/a-conversation-about-sexuality-intimacy-ethics-and-psychedelics-with-arielle-brown/ Join Arielle Brown for a conversation about the intersection between psychedelics and sexuality. She’ll offer insight into the psychology of intimacy and the longing for increasingly deep and meaningful connections. We’ll talk about what arises when we begin to own and take responsibility for aspects of ourselves that often stay hidden in the shadows of our psyche. Many of us are seeking ways and modalities for accessing deeper levels of consciousness within ourselves. As we move forward on our paths of awakening, we naturally feel the pull to find like-minded people to travel with. We seek out teachers and communities who can not only guide us on our path, but can also become part of the greater sandbox in which we play. These communities, life all communities, are not perfect. Power gets misused, boundaries get crosses, and people get hurt. Even when people act with intention and care, mistakes can be made. As we gain increasing levels of mastery with our own power and energy, we realize that consent and boundaries penetrate deeper than just the verbal and physical level. How we engage with people on subtle, energetic levels, can cause just as much, if not more, harm than more obvious actions. People have tired of the long term and widespread abuses of power that are coming to light. There is an outcry for leaders to take have greater consciousness and responsibility for their impact when engaging with people who rely on their care. Two areas we can see this important awareness arising is in the field of conscious sexuality, and in the field of psychedelics. Psychedelic communities across the globe all have their own stories of sexual misconduct, of people being manipulated and violated by shamans, teachers, mentors, people that were supposed to be trustworthy. More and more, we are coming to realize that simply because someone may have had an ‘enlightening’ experience, does not mean they possess empathy, or even good moral character. We’re called to find an inner intimacy, to trust our own boundaries, and our own intuition. Arielle Brown is a coach and facilitator with a focus on embodied intelligence and transparent communication skills.

Community Psychedelic Integration Circle Mt. Tam's Integration Circles and Educational events seek to be a welcoming space for people who want to discuss entheogenic use in a healthy way, for psychological healing and spiritual growth. When we have an intense or profound psychedelic experience, it can be hard to describe, especially when we don't have anyone to talk about it with. Giving voice to our experience with like minded people can enable us to put things in perspective, gain new insight, and find resolution. By listening to other's experiences, we can learn about how they try to ensure safe and healthy use, gathering a collection of tools and best practices. Our Circles give people an opportunity to meditate together, share their stories, ask questions, give and receive feedback. We are excited to hear all of your voices, and look forward to learning from all of you.
