Details: If you heard stories about a compound that can provide you the understanding to tease apart the blind-spots you have assumed about yourself and reality, would you suspend your disbelief and take it?
In this open talk Dr. Gerardo Sandonval and Natasha English will offer insights and groundbreaking applications with this endogenous medicine. This Entheogen is a chemical compound that serves a specific function in our body, and it must be used with great care under appropriate, prep, set, setting. We will discuss the various practices around the world with this medicine, and how we both discovered our unique methods of working with the 5 Me0 Dmt.
Since this compound has now found it’s way into popular culture, we have a responsibility to educate others about using the medicine in a conscious way. Without proper guidance, it opens people up to the possibility of danger and or harm. This event is to provide conscious support and guidance with working with these medicines.
Tryptamines have again emerged as drug candidates for managing treatment of anxiety, clinical depression, cluster headaches and substance abuse disorders. Pharmacological studies are essential to tryptamine drug development to allow researchers to better understand the therapeutic efficacy of natural tryptamines, like psilocybin and DMT’s, and their synthetic analogs in treating disease.
One of these tryptamines is an extremely powerful neurotransmitter that produces radical transformation in perception. While this medicine is is often spoken about as being “magical,” it is not a “magic bullet.” This medicine allows for the opportunity to truly get beyond the confines of your ego to examine the mental and emotional habituated patterns and assumed misconceptions we cling to, as you encounter yourself in your immediate and infinite nature.

Radio Interview Schedule
All shows begin Wednesday at 6 pm PST on 100.5 FM or for archives go to Conscious Living Radio
October 12th, 6 pm: Tom Hatsis- Tom Hatsis is a writer, educator, and historian with a master’s degree in history from Queens College. The host of the website arspsychedelic.com, he has presented his research at several U.S. universities, including Yale, and published articles in the psychedelics journal Psypress U.K. He lives in New York. Tom will be speaking about how during medieval times certain wise-women worshiped specifically female deities held over from the days of Ancient Rome by ingesting psychoactive substances that put them into a deep trance so as to experience spirit flight. It was this particular form of worship that some theologians would use as the foundation for what later generations would call a “witches’ ointment.”
October 19th, 6 pm: Robyn Lawrence-Robyn Griggs Lawrence is sharing the tremendous health and wellness benefits of Cannabis with the world. She envisions a world in which cannabis grows freely and organically everywhere and no one is ever persecuted or imprisoned for possessing this sacred plant.
As laws around the world are relaxed and prohibition comes to an end, cannabis is emerging as a medicinal superfood with exponential possibilities for healing. But challenges remain. Because the industry is still largely unregulated, consumers often have no idea how their cannabis is grown (all too often with lawn chemicals) and processed (all too often with butane). We must advocate for sustainable grown, responsibly marketed cannabis and show consumers why that matters. Those of us who love the plant must stand up for her evolution as a natural medicine and superfood—without adulteration—just as we fought for organic food standards in the 1990s. We can preserve this sacred plant’s spirit from over-manipulation and adulteration, but advocacy and education are key.
