Evolver Intensives

R and I have recently signed up for the Evolver intensive workshop online and it starts today. We are very excited about it and hope to share some information to all of you about the topics discussed.  Here is what the first sessions about:

AWAKENING THE COSMIC SERPENT: SHAMANISM AND PLANT TEACHERS IN THIS TRANSFORMATIVE TIME


Host: Jeremy Narby



Indigenous wisdom about plant medicine can open the path to deep personal healing and a profound understanding of the universe, and for many people this ancient knowledge is transforming modern life.
6 calls, starts January 23



Throughout the Western World, people increasingly participate in indigenous shamanic ceremonies using psychedelic plants to open a path to deep personal insights and high spiritual truths. These plants -- including mushrooms, peyote, ayahuasca, and salvia divinorum -- are revered by ancient tribal societies as potent teachers capable of healing the body, expanding the mind, and strengthening community.



  • What can modern people can learn from indigenous cultures about the use of psychoactive plants and the modification of consciousness?

  • What can be learned directly from these plants -- which can be powerful and tricky teachers -- and how can we incorporate these lessons into our daily lives?

  • In what ways do indigenous people benefit from the Western interest in shamanism, and what new cultural bridges are being built through the spread of indigenous spiritual practices?


The renowned anthropologist Jeremy Narby has explored these questions for over two decades. In his much-admired books, including The Cosmic Serpant and Shamans Through Time, Jeremy has shared his wisdom and insights. For the first time, in this special video teleseminar series, he will pursue these questions through two exclusive online lectures, and one-on-one discussions with four of the world's leading experts on the shamanic use of mind-altering plants: Stanislav Grof, Wade Davis, Kat Harrison and Luis Eduardo Luna.
