Working with herbs and plants to heal addictions
Can herbs and psychedelics assist with healing addiction?
YES! That is the short answer.
Check out in this video some of my thoughts around addiction. I'm not a specialist, but opening the dialogue of my journey.
Walking the plant medicine path

How to prepare ceremonial cacao at home
Ceremonial cacao is an ancient spiritual medicine prepared from the cacao bean, the seed of the sweet fruit of the cacao tree. Using ceremonial cacao either in a ceremony or as a part of a daily routine is neither intense nor a psychedelic experience, as other plant medicines can be. Rather, cacao gently nudges the heart chakra open, gifting benefits such as emotional embodiment and spiritual connection.Erik Desrosiers
DJ Shalman Ecstatic Dance JourneyClick to open Audio
The latest and greatest from Mystic Manor's Gracious Gathering. Started the recording a tad bit late, but this has been my favorite recorded mix to date.
It's part tribal, part medicine music, part deep house, part techno, and all awesome.
Hope you all enjoy it!

Breathing exercises to alleviate anxiety
Nadi Shodana is a Pranayama exercise that clears toxins and reduces stress. By balancing Solar (Masculine) and Lunar (Feminine) in our subtle energy channels, Nadi Shodana strengthens our ability to tap into the functions of the right and left brain to create harmony in our lives. This breathwork practice can be used to cultivate alertness and invite clarity to the mind-body and emotions. When done regularly, Nadi Shodana can drastically improve the function of the autonomic nervous system. This exercise can be done alone, with an asana practice or to prepare the nerves for potentially high stress situations.Sihnuu Hetep
