Are you interested in how psychedelics have been used for tens of thousands of years on the African continent, and how they continue to help societies today?

Join us for this 3-part series starting 11th Nov 7:00pm – 9:30pm

Darren Le Baron will share this knowledge and experience through the lenses of ancient history and mythology. Although not often recognized by researchers and scientists, fungi and plants have been used by indigenous people of Africa for spiritual and community development for millennia. Several communities use these sacred plants in their rites of passage, initiation ceremonies and daily rituals. In this series, you will learn about these groups, their connection to these psychedelics and their various applications. We will also explore how through psychedelic liberation we can help support mother Africa’s children in the diaspora in the here and now with their true emancipation.
