The use of visionary/healing/awakening plants—such as ayahuasca, psilocybe mushrooms, iboga, peyote, cannabis, wachuma (San Pedro), and semi-synthetic substances like LSD and MDMA—is spreading rapidly during this period of intensified change. These allies may be the most direct and effective teachers many of us have now when we meet them in the best of conditions (set and setting) and are able to integrate the insights and openings into our daily lives.

The Spirit Plant Medicine Conference is now in its fourth year of bringing strong and clear voices to Vancouver to help usher in effective and sustainable engagement with these “entheogens” in all respects as they spread their influence deeper and wider.

Now that so many have encountered spirit medicines like these, it appears we’ve reached a new level. The conversation is deepening and clarifying so that the remarkable benefits of these substances can take their place in a variety of forms of healing and awakening work.

This shared intention links a heterogeneous community of those who are called to work with entheogens. As well as the exciting information and inspiration that have come to define the conference, we see this as a key event to strengthen that community for individual and collective benefit.

You are warmly—and enthusiastically—invited to participate in this adventure on the weekend of October 24 to 26, 2014 at UBC.
