"Building community is to the collective as spiritual practice is to the individual." - Grace Lee Boggs
our spiritual work is deeply political work — resources for settlers working with plant medicines to examine characteristics of white supremacy culture and root their personal healing in collective liberation.
How can plant medicines help us move from ally to accomplice?
how can plants help us metabolize our ancestral grief / intergenerational trauma?
how do we center upholding the sovereignty of Native people in the psychedelic community?
How can plants help us see through the illusion of privilege to ultimately relinquish it?
what are your healing lineages? how has the distance / absence from these practices affected you? How can ancestral reconnection help us not blindly appropriate / capitalize on other healing modalities?
how can plants help us identify where the oppressor lives intimately within us?
how can sacred earth medicines help to expand our container for discomfort?
how can we create ~accessible~ containers to hold each other accountable in the face of shame and guilt without judgement?
how do we show up and claim each other, instead of perpetuating purity politics and colonial standards that separate us?
how do we not perpetuate the appropriation and commodification of these plants? how do we actively protect them while connecting this work to larger environmental protection goals? how can relationships with plant medicines help us become committed land stewards?
how do we keep medicine accessible?
what does solidarity feel like in our bodies? how do we root ourselves while remaining open?
how can plants help us learn accountability and to move out of our victimization?
how do we do all this in community not isolation?
a collapsing society means there's a war on everyone everywhere - you're not ok, im not ok, we're not ok
in the absence of distress, the natural way we feel about each other - yes, including strangers - is love and respect
there are no human enemies - distress is the enemy
our largest driving need is our need to love! - not to be loved - but TO love
look for things to appreciate and respect in everyone!!!!
Non attachment: I seek the liberation of all beings before any certain individual life story
