The Master Plant Experience: The Science, Safety, and Sacred Ceremony of Psychedelics
According to Maya Shetreat, MD, psychedelic master plants are here to stay, and they're about to revolutionize mainstream approaches to medical care and mental health. The question is, are we really ready? As study after study is published by prestigious academic centers around the world, many healthcare practitioners are excited about new treatments for addiction, major depression, PTSD, OCD, sexual trauma, eating disorders, and even possibly dementia and pain syndromes. What do we need to do as individuals and communally to be educated, respectful, and responsible as master plants emerge from the Indigenous communities where they've been used for millennia?
In this session, you’ll discover:
- Why a neurologist is talking about master plants and psychedelics
- Why the physical and mental health benefits of psychedelics may be the tip of the iceberg of what master plants can offer us
- What exactly is the master plant experience
