Spirit Plant Medicine Conference
Finding others who are interested in psychedelics and consciousness can be a daunting task. Our society doesn’t typically support us to explore these ideas openly with others. Though most people may be interested to hear about our experiences or ideas, they shun away from sharing their own stories. It’s a bit easier to talk about the spirit and plant medicines when you are around like-minded individuals.
Take part in one of the most informative conferences of the year
Every year in Vancouver BC people around the world convene to take part in a collective discussion at the Just Some of the Speakers for the Spirit Plant Medicine Conference for precisely this reason. They discuss spiritually empowering plant medicine that has changed not only their lives but others as well. Professionals in the field of consciousness research, psychedelic research, and more also come to this conference to give talks about what they have learned and experienced through their lifetime of work. They take their work very seriously, and for a good reason, plants are a medicine that is not only changing out people perceive their reality but also helping individuals overcome some severe ailments like depression, PTSD, and drug addiction.
There is a vast selection of speakers that come to the Spirit Plant Medicine Conference each year, some more known individuals in their field of research such as Dennis McKenna, but also some unknown like Kilindi Lyi.
Kilindi Lyi was a speaker at the conference in 2017 and discussed his experiences using psilocybin mushrooms at heroic doses. When Terrence Mckenna was talking about using mushrooms at doses of 5 grams, Kilindi Lyi has been exploring 20-30 grams. Most would think that his choice to do so was a bit reckless, but Kilindi has been exploring consciousness with this high of a dose for decades and is well-educated as a master mycologist, a master martial arts instructor, and an organizer the bi-annual Detroit Entheogenic Conference. Kilindi is just one type of speaker you can expect at the Spirit Plant Medicine Conference.
If listening to speakers talk about psychedelics is not your thing, the discussions happening at the conference are diverse. For 2018 they have a number of speakers that may appeal to those trying to explore more into the spiritual realm as well.
Aryshta Dean who is planning to talk about Quantum Consciousness, Entheogens, and Container Theory will be at the conference this year. She has a broad understanding of the holistic use of entheogens and has over fifteen years experience in the ceremonial and shamanic practices.
Another speaker, Christopher Bache who is a professor emeritus in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Youngstown State University will also be attending the conference. His goal while at the Spirits Plant Medicine Conference is to share his knowledge about the philosophical implications of non-ordinary states of consciousness.
Who Will Be at the Spirit Plant Medicine Conference?
One speaker at the Spirit Plant Medicine Conference that I am most interested is Christopher Solomon. Christopher has a long history of exploration with the plant Salvia Divinorum which many consider a misunderstood powerful healing plant. Christopher has been fostering a bond with Salvia Divinorum for over a decade and has recently taken part in a study at Johns Hopkins University about the effects of salvinorin A on human brain activity and connectivity utilizing fMRI techniques. It will be interesting for me to listen to what Christopher has to say about his experiences as well as how others can cultivate the same relationship with Salvia that he has developed over time.
Overall the Spirit Plant Medicine Conference offers individuals like myself a way to connect with others who are interested in psychedelics and consciousness. People are currently planning on traveling around the world to take part in this fantastic adventure that happens each year in Vancouver. Will you be there?
