    Ayahuasca and the psilocybe mushrooms are two shamanic entheogens that have entered underground, like illegal immigrants, into Western societies in the late 20th century. Their use has spread, vine-like and mycelium-like, through the psychedelic subculture of individuals and groups interested in consciousness expansion, psychospiritual healing and growth, and the restoration of a more direct relationship with thesacred dimensions of the natural world.

    Dr. Metzner will present the findings regarding these two mind assisting medicines, and how they relate to psychotherapy, shamanic journey practices and alchemical divination. He is a psychologist and Professor Emeritus at the California Institute of Integral Studies. He is also the author of The Well of Remembrance, The Unfolding Self, and Green Psychology. He has developed a training program in Alchemical Divination processes for accessing intuitive knowledge for healing and guidance.
