SUNDAY MARCH 3, 2024 3:00-5:00pm
CLASS IS HELD AT 424 E. SIMPSON ST. LAFAYETTE, CO 80026
This workshop explores the innate connections between plants and humans. The evolution of humanity is intimately connected to the evolution of plants. Our physiology has been governed by the ingestion and inhalation of plant constituents since humans first evolved. Working with plants is on the forefront, as knowledge of and communion with plants is once again being embraced and practiced. Many people are interested in entheogens and psychoactive plants, as they have been since the dawn of man. How did our physiology evolve to ingest these substances?
Deepening our relationship with not only mind-altering plants, but more importantly all medicinal herbs, is not only a great way to help adapt to the stress of our modern lifestyle, but it can also bring courage to make the changes necessary for us to heal ourselves. To understand ourselves, we must know where we came from. The story of our evolution is ancient and far more miraculous than imagined. Plants such as fig, pine, reishi, psilocybin, cannabis,banisteriopsis, and more will be discussed.
This class may provide you with a better understanding of plant and human evolution. We will discuss the pros and cons of working with psychedelics and entheogens in western medical and psycho-therapy models. We will drink tea and sip (legal) herbal elixirs.
