It’s the third wave. A new wave of research that puts psychedelic medicine forward as a strong candidate for the treatment of mental health. While decades of clinical trials have produced consistent results of positive outcomes, what is the origin story of this medicine?
While my relationship with psychedelics has been personal and profound, it was this question that sparked my journey towards the truth.
It is now time for the Lion to tell his own story, the hunters version is played out. So let me ask you...
Are you interested in how psychedelics have been used for tens of thousands of years on the African continent, and how they continue to support societies today?
Although rarely recognized by researchers and scientists, fungi and plants have been used by the earliest indigenous people of Africa for spiritual and community development for a millennia. Several African communities continue today to use these sacred plants in their rites of passage, initiation ceremonies and daily rituals.
Join me in this series to learn the incredible history and the enriching stories of psychedelics in Africa. I will share my research, knowledge and experience through the lens of ancient history, mythology and scientific studies.
ORDER NOW to join me, and let’s build a new community for this new online series.
