About this event

The internationalization of Ayahuasca and the current interest in entheogens and psychedelics for treatment and self-discovery bring challenges to professionals and participants alike. While licensed ritual use, research and clinical efforts are moving forward, there seems to be little knowledge available for the community at large regarding the experiences, and the potential awakening precipitated by non-ordinary states of consciousness (NOSC).

This presentation discuses the “maps” necessary for depth inner exploration, for these journeys require a broader cartography of the self and the unseen, transpersonal realms. We will address how in NOSC each person’s experience is unique, why issues such as boundaries, identities and ethics need specific attention, and how to wisely manage care of one’s body, soul, and spirit during the process of self-discovery.

Join our panel members to answer these questions and ask some of your own.
