The use of sacramental entheogenic plants have played a central role in healing, community harmonization, spiritual connection, and earth stewardship since the dawn of human civilization.
Shamanic cave paintings dating back to 38,000BC in the Northern France, Spain & the Sahara reveal psilocybin mushrooms with anthropomorphic figures in the ceremony. Psilocybin has also been discovered in pottery dating back to 2000 BC in Xiongnu China and is said to be the main ingredient for the legendary Soma beverage central to the prolific spiritual traditions of Vedic India. In Ancient Egypt, the Blue River Lily, mandrake & psilocybin mushrooms were used as a rites of passage ritual in ceremonies of the underworld, afterlife, and divination – and are featured in hundreds of hieroglyphic and sculpture art pieces over a 5000 year lineage. In Greece, the Kykeon brew was the central sacrament to the Eleusinian and later Dionysian mysteries. A pilgrimage while fasting to the sacred temples was followed by imbibing on ergotted wine (Ergot being the man fungal ingredient in LSD) hailed by Socrates, Plato, Emperor Marcus Oralius, Sophicles and many of the most enigmatic figures of Hellenistic Greece, as critical to the upholding the virtue of Athenian culture. There is also evidence suggesting that the earliest Gnostic Christian eucharist was also an entheogenic sacrament as found in Brian Muraresku’s seminal book – “The Immortality Key”.
While Indigenous cultures including Aborigine in Australia, who communed with the Pituri bush to enter the dream time; and the the Bwiti tribe of West Africa utilizes the Iboga root, used these plants to connect with ancestors, experience the dream time, and release unhealthy attachments. (Note: The iboga root is now renowned in contemporary medicine for its prolific capacity to rehabilitate those suffering from major opioid addiction.) Ayahuasca, the vine of souls, a brew made from the Banisteriopsis caapi and psychotria viridis plants, invokes a powerful connection to the natural kingdom providing perspective to man’s role as guardians and stewards of ALL life. Peyote and Huachuma (San Pedro) cacti have also played a central role in ceremonial indigenous traditions in both North & South America, largely responsible for the preservation of many sacred ceremonial traditions that would have been lost to persecution. And lastly, the Flesh of the Gods or psilocybin mushrooms, the essence of Teonanacatl Xoxipilli (God of Flowers) in the Aztec tradition, and core sacrament in Mayan and the ancient Mazatec traditions, continues to be utilized as a medicine central to the upholding core virtues of the spirit, ancestral connection, healing, and self-realization.
