What we're about
A welcoming community of open-minded people with different backgrounds who have an interest in inner exploration. Our discussion topics tend to center around shamanic techniques , plant medicine, expansion of consciousness and spirituality. We are interested in growing as human beings by integrating our spiritual experiences into our lifestyles and sharing our knowledge with each other.
The topics of conversation at meetings are our experiences with Ethnobotany and Ethnomycology, and sacramental use of entheogens in archaic and contemporary traditions. As well as things that tie into these ideas:
Techniques and methods of trance and inner-exploration: entheogens, drumming, chanting, prayer, breathwork, trance, fasting, brainwave entrainment, lucid dreaming.
Yoga, Pranayama, Tantra.
Sweat Lodge, Medicine Wheel, Nature Based Spirituality
Themes of Unity, Synchronicity, and Heart-Centered Spirituality.
Entheogens as a catalyst for revelation and inspiration in Art and Music.
Exploration of Human and Cosmic Consciousness
Energy work and healing: Spiritual Herbalism, Acupuncture, Reiki, Qigong, Tai Chi.
Experiences of Ego Death, Gnosis, Mystic Union, Samadhi, etc.

Please recognize the laws concerning some of the plants that have entheogenic uses. We do not condone illegal activities during meetups. Don't join just to find a "hookup". If that is your sole purpose for joining, you will be removed from the group.
This group was started to create an exchange of information, and opportunities for its diverse members to share new ideas and come to their own conclusions. Please remain open-minded, and respectful of other members' opinions and experiences.
I'm pleased to see the growing interest in this topic, and I hope that this group will facilitate more connections between philosophers, artists, healers, and all those who are intrigued by the idea of such a community. This is a very exciting time!
