Sabrina Pilet-Jones received Cosmic Sister’s immersive Plant Spirit Grant in 2018 to experience ayahuasca ceremonies at Temple of The Way of Light in the Peruvian Amazon, which inspired her to found Sabrina’s Garden (@sabrinas_garden), a popup flower shop. “Ayahuasca is not a magical pill. It’s hard, deep, transformative shamanic work that forces you into the deepest, darkest parts of yourself to find the unique light we all hold,” she says. 

Sabrina is assistant farm manager for the Urban Farming Institute (@ufiboston). She co-taught Juju Box: Sacred Plant Rituals of the African Diaspora, an herbal journey with plants of the African Diaspora, at Boston’s Herbstalk (@herbstalk) with her partner, Yoruba Practitioner Arirá Adééké (@seedofosun). “I live life through my passion for manifest health and wellness by spreading knowledge about food,” she says. 

Sabrina began practicing Wicca at age nine and has explored spiritual/magical studies, including hoodoo and shamanism, throughout her life. Studying African American spirituality and ancestral universal laws of living in harmony with Dr. Nteri Nelson empowered Sabrina to continue her own personal spiritual exploration and help others heal.

In partnership with Spirit Plant Medicine Conference, Sabrina was awarded a Cosmic Sister Emerging Voices Award (CS EVA). The CS EVA increases visibility for talented women in the field of psychedelics. She will participate in the panel “Rising Voices: Women of Color in the Sacred Plant Community,” on the main stage. 

Rising Voices: Women of Color in the Sacred Plant Community

Women of Color’s voices are greatly underrepresented in the psychedelic plant community, despite their demonstrated talent for, connection to, and keen interest in these profound medicines. Cosmic Sister is proud to sponsor the panel discussion “Rising Voices: Women of Color in the Sacred Plant Community,” on the main stage. Women of the Psychedelic Renaissance grant recipient and main stage speaker The Dank Duchess will moderate the panel, which includes Cosmic Sister Emerging Voices recipients interdisciplinary artist and storyteller Tonye Aganaba, plant food alchemist and chef and yoga instructor Sarinda Hoilett, urban gardener and community artist Sabrina Pilet-Jones, and performing artist and adventurer Vanessa Yuen.
