At World Tree Sanctuary, naturally occurring, organic entheogens are our sacraments. Our sacraments have played a major role in helping people find healing from past traumas as well as freedom from the conditioning that we’ve all experienced since we were born and those who are actively seeking change through the exploration of their own inner consciousness.
What are entheogens?
Many people instantly recoil at both the terms psychedelic and spiritual. Yet the use of psychoactive sacraments in religious practices is found throughout the entirety of human history. Spirituality and connection to the source of consciousness is primal human instinct. Entheogens are the original medicines of Earth. In the mid 20th century, with the intervention of psychedelic therapy, the term entheogen became more of an umbrella term used to include artificial drugs, alternative medical treatment, and spiritual practice, whether or not in a formal religious or traditional structure. We use the term entheogen vs. psychedelic now to pay homage to this long established relationship between humans and these natural substances and to reduce the stigma and public perception of these compounds and practices.
Why Psychedelic Sacraments?
World Tree Sanctuary accepts all natural, organic plants as healing sacraments. A special group of plant-based psychedelics have been used by humans for thousands of years, along with other various methods, to explore their consciousness in order to heal the root causes of both emotional distress and existential suffering. These plants include but are not limited to: cannabis, mushrooms, peyote, ayahuasca, and any other indigenous Earth-based healing sacrament that has been found to benefit the health and welfare of recipients. The reported experience of thousands of years of seekers is that these plant medicines have the ability to provide a personal experience that expands our awareness and accesses a higher aspect of our personal consciousness, which may give insight to universal truths and more of our true nature as human beings. Psychedelics can act as a catalyst for personal growth and lasting change. It’s important to note that inner exploration can be achieved through other practices, such as deep meditation and breathwork.
