Inspiring teachings centered on navigating our world’s collective challenges with indigenous wisdom and the power of psychedelics

• With contributions from Christopher Bache, Zoe Helene, Dennis McKenna, Martina Hoffmann, The Dank Duchess, Jamie Wheal, Grandmother Maria Alice, and others

• Explores the immense healing intelligence of nature, the wisdom of ancient indigenous prophecies and shamanic practices, the importance of the Divine Feminine for environmental regeneration, and the crucial role of psychedelic and entheogenic plants in initiating transformations of consciousness

Exploring the way forward for humanity in the face of unprecedented crisis, more than 25 contributors show how the wisdom of indigenous peoples and the power of psychedelics can help us enact the radical shift in consciousness necessary to navigate the collapse of the old world order and the birth of a new consciousness centered on awakened-heart interconnectedness.

We hear from psychedelic visionaries Christopher Bache, Zoe Helene, Wade Davis, Chris Kilham, Laurel Sugden, and others on the promise of psychedelic medicines for spiritual and healing work. We learn about indigenous stories to support our transformation from Native American leader Solana Booth, ancestral memory from Grandmother Maria Alice Campos Freire, cannabis’s role in world building from Minelli Eustàcio-Costa, the ritual roots of talking plants from Michael Stuart Ani, and alchemy across the arc of time from shaman Ya’Acov Darling Khan. We also hear from cannabis grower The Dank Duchess; Bruce Damer, a “mystic scientist” working on the question of life’s origins and its future in space; Tyson Yunkaporta, Australian Aboriginal artist and scholar; visionary artist Martina Hoffmann; professor of religious studies G. William Barnard; activist Duane Elgin; Kohenet Rachel Kann, ordained Jewish priestess and ceremonialist; and several other wise leaders for our time.

Throughout these profound, inspiring, and ultimately hopeful essays we are reminded of the immense healing intelligence of nature and our plant allies, of the wisdom of ancient Indigenous prophecies and shamanic practices, of the importance of the Divine Feminine for environmental regeneration, and of the crucial role of psychedelic and entheogenic plants in initiating transformations of consciousness and healing our world’s collective disconnection from Spirit.
