Entheogens and the Dying Process

Instructors: 
Kathleen Maier, RH (AHG), PA
Date: 
Tuesday, November 7, 2017 - 8:00pm to 9:00pm EST

This live webinar event will take place at 8:00 pm EST (7:00pm Central Time, 6:00pm Mountain Time, and 5:00pm Pacific Time).

The rise in interest in entheogenic medicines (hallucinogenic) has given medicine a deeper understanding not only to these plants but also our endocrine function and physiology. This class will look at the chemistry of these plants, N,N-Dimethyltryptamine in particular, and see how these teachers give  instruction for the death and dying process. Not to be used at transition, but as tools to navigate pathways of the process. We will also look at the effect of the popularization of these sacraments and the impact inappropriate use has had on indigenous cultures as well as our own.
