Nurturing Our Eco-Consciousness [ONLINE]
February 24 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
by Psychedelic Society (UK)
Psychedelics are being proven to be powerful tools in combating the current global mental epidemic. But are we paying enough attention to the ecological crisis? Are concerns over the state of our mental health taking up all of our focus so that we’re ignoring the blatant destruction of the ecosphere? Whether through changing the way we perceive the natural world or uncovering a deep connection native to our very being, psychedelics have the ability to enhance our nature-connectedness, teaching us to fall back in love with planet Earth.
How can we utilise the phenomenon of nature-connected as a means to tackle the ongoing climate emergency? Is simply experiencing greater affinity with the natural world enough? It’s time we explore ways in which we can manifest increased nature-connectedness with greater engagement towards building a more sustainable and symbiotic relationship with our planet.
During this panel discussion, we will explore the mysteries of nature-connectedness and theories of why psychedelics produce this phenomenon, even when experienced in non-natural settings. We will investigate how nature-connectedness prevails amongst indigenous communities who ritualistically use plant sacraments, and what lessons we can learn from such communities in increasing global biophilia.
Join us for this fascinating discussion on the role of psychedelics in animism and eco-consciousness with expert researchers from the fields of ecology, transpersonal psychology and shamanism.
