Event Testimonials

It is such a gift that we finally have a place where like minded individuals can meet and learn about entheogenic medicines. I agree with Richard Miller that its time that those who used psychedelics in their youth and grew up to be responsible citizens openly support the medicinal use of them. These lectures help spread the word not only of the immense value of these plants and compounds, but increase the chance that someday they will be legalized and made available to those who truly need them.

Dan Staso, PhD – Clinical Psychologist

As a child of the sixties I had opportunities to explore psychedelics but never did so in a serious and focused way. Surprisingly I think attending this event may have opened my mind to having such experiences here in my later years. I always like to support educational presentations, I respect your talent for finding an extraordinary speaker..

Andrew Unetic – Retired Trial Attorney

This event brought together a large crowd of interested citizens, with varying levels of connection to plant medicines. Clearly this is a topic whose time has come around again, and this group is providing a venue in our community. I look forward to meeting more people and hearing what future speakers may have to offer.
