CREATING A CULTURAL FOUNDATION FOR SPIRITUAL EMERGENCE. Building A Global Psychedelic Consciousness Community
Psychedelics can be catalysts for transpersonal consciousness, personal and ancestral healing, and even genuine spiritual awakening. However, without a robust web of cultural support to hold us on the other side of these experiences, integration is often an isolating, challenging, and seemingly impossible task. This can often send people back to the medicines too soon. Over-reliance on these medicines, especially before one is ready, can result in fractures to the self and challenging aftermaths like spiritual emergency. Failure to prioritize integration in psychedelic communities can become a vicious cycle that begins to look like spiritual bypassing and addiction to altered states.Yet genuine transformation is possible. Integrating transformative experiences requires more than individual work with a therapist or integration coach, it requires a community that is willing to weave a new world with psychedelic consciousness together.
