Psychedelics, Sacred Medicines & Purpose conference

Susuns gift to you!


The Shamanic Herbalist 

The use of psychoactive plants is a the cornerstone of herbal wisdom in every indigenous culture I have had the opportunity to visit or read about. Harvard professor Richard Evans Schultes says of the principal shaman of the Kamsa Indians of the Amazon, where psychoactive plants are widely used: "He insists that his knowledge and power come to him directly from the plants themselves through hallucinations."

Modern America demonizes and legislates against psychoactive plants and their users. If we agree, and therefore back off from using these plants, we deny ourselves one of the most important links between people and plants -- a link that dates back at least 40,000 years. 

The psychoactive link between people and plants is not limited to actual ingestion of the psychoactive plants. Teachers like David Winston, Isla Burgess, Stephen Buhner, and myself make a regular practice of not only talking with the plants, but also teaching others how to do so. But this, to my mind, it is rather like learning to play music when your ears are stoppled. Psychoactive plants open our inner ears, and help us hear the language and music of the plants.
