From all I've experienced so far, what most motivates my participation in life is the idea that the most lasting, sustainable way forward for humanity would be to bring together the best of indigenous and modern world views; our knowledge, wisdom, and technologies, to create a new, shared
cosmology, what some are calling, "a new story". I like "The vision that informs the Pachamama Alliance’s work is of a world that works for everyone: an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, socially just human presence on this planet—a New Dream for humanity".

Being in "right relationship" with plant medicines teaches us to be in right relationship with ourselves, each other, and the world.
Like many, I feel the revolution needed to overcome the challenges facing humanity is an accelerated evolution of human consciousness. This consciousness would be an interconnected eco-consciousness - a union of ancient and new understandings of the world and ourselves that reconnects us to "the garden" and cosmos in revelatory awe of who we are.
Responsible, intentional, ceremonial, psyco-spiritual use of plant medicine teachers and entheogens consistently offer this - healing us from historic, ancestral traumas, restoring our sense of connection, and, as my lifelong friend, Sunny Solwind, would say, "help cure us of stupidity".
