This Funzing Experience:
Are you interested how psychedelics have been used for thousands of years on the African continent, and why they continue to help societies today?

Learn how this knowledge can help you to use psychedelics consciously, and how ritual can supercharge this already powerful experience!

Darren Springer will share his knowledge and experience through the lenses of ancient history and mythology. Darren is known for his Shroomshops and his extensive research on the indigenous usage of psychedelic plants used in ritual and ceremony on the African continent.

Although not often recognised by researchers and scientists, fungi and plants have been used by indigenous people of Africa for spiritual and community development for millennia. Several communities use these sacred plants in their rites of passage, initiation ceremonies and daily ritual.

This is a great interactive talk and slide show presentation that takes you into the ritual and medicinal use of psychedelics by some of the most ancient African peoples, into ancient Egypt, and beyond.
