Psychedelics are powerful substances that can be used to promote personal growth and transformation. They have been used for centuries in many cultures around the world, often as part of spiritual or religious rituals.

Psychedelic experiences can provide insights into our thoughts, feelings, and behavior patterns that we may not otherwise be aware of. These insights can help us gain clarity on what is important to us and how best to pursue it. Using psychedelics safely and intentionally can empower individuals to embark on journeys of self-discovery that lead to lasting transformation in all aspects of life.

Why My Conscience Is Voting NO on Colorado Proposition 122: Access to Natural Psychedelics Substances (Blue Book Title)
“More Mushrooms, Less Patriarchy” is the rallying cry I displayed at Denver’s Womxn’s March. I’ve been reflecting heavily on whether 122 upholds this core belief.
