Within each and every one of us, there exists a fire. It is the source of our passion, purpose and will to experience and thrive in this world. For many of us, it may feel as if this fire has all but turned to ash. Smothered by life’s traumatic lessons, the demands of career & family, and the intensity of living in a fear-based culture. Yet despite all we face – from pandemics, to social unrest & politics – to depression, obsession & addiction – Something ancient is stirring within us to look deeper. To seek out our ineffable SpArc, so vital to health and well being, and critical to overcoming the challenges we face on the journey ahead. It is that deep & primordial call for inner discovery that has guided you here today.

Nathan Taylor is an explorer of consciousness, with an academic and professional background in philosophy, chemistry, ecology, and purpose-driven entrepreneurship. He has worked with psychedelics for 25 years, both personally and as a companion and guide for others. He is a compassionate supporter of expeditions into consciousness for self-realization, healing, self-improvement, and pursuit of the ecstatic mystical/unitive state. Nathan has experienced first hand the potential for the psychedelic experience, when used skillfully and applied with intention, to empower one to break through some of the toughest challenges of fear, grief, and attachment, and to emerge back into the light of hope, self love, purpose, and motivation. He believes that safety, in body, mind, and soul, is paramount for a successful experience with these sacred and powerful gifts. This safety is what Nathan seeks to provide to others, both professionally and personally, to encourage one to risk the liberating leap into the psyche.
Recently I had the sincere honor of being featured in one of the top three psychedelic focused podcasts in the world – Third Wave. In the podcast, I share by far the most honest reflection of my journey with plant medicines in my life. From a psychedelic rebirth in 2008 that lead to me leave academia to answer a deeper call to be of service as a producer, master of ceremonies, and curator of transformational events for over 10 years; To immersing into a spiritual devotional path with Kabbalah while using psychedelics in the heart of ritual practice; to losing my ability to curate events and returning to where it all began in the heart of the ceremonial circle. Throughout the discussion, I candidly share my greatest life triumphs and serious hard lessons in this path of service; pushing myself to the psychological, emotional, and physical brink more times than I care to admit… Yet within this odyssey of a life I have chosen, I have truly & deeply found my spark. Living every day with a fullness that is beyond what I ever imagined possible.
