PSYCHOACTIVITY aims to provide insights in shamanism, visionary plants and altered states of consciousness
Shamanic images are omnipresent in cavepaintings and petroglyphs around the world. Some of them trace back to 60.000 years reveiling shamanism as oldest root and common heritage of mankind. Some shamanic cultures managed to survive until now. Now, more than ever, ecospheres and global climate are threatened by devastating exploitations of nature-resources for the sake of progress by industrialisation around the globe.
Shouldnt we rather listen to those who managed to survive, until today, within nature?
PSYCHOACTIVITY aims to preserve our common ancestral shamanic roots by listening to elders from shamanic cultures and by distributing their wisdom among interested people in the West.
According to shamanism everything is interconnected in the cycle of life minerals, plants, animals and humans without any hierarchy. Shamans respectfully refer to plant-teachers as their source of knowledge for the use of medicinal plants. Plant-teacher – What a wonderful term and concept to teach us the difference between use and abuse.
