Music and Entheogens: Pivotal Role in Shamanic, Entheogenic and Therapeutic Practice | Tony Moss
It’s now widely accepted that the trauma of our ancestors is stored in our DNA, with myriad scientific studies demonstrating that ancestors of traumatized populations experience greater physical and mental health challenges. there is growing evidence that Ayahuasca can heal trauma embedded into one’s epigenetics, getting to the root of deep and lingering issues often resistant to more traditional therapies. This neuroplasticity engendered by Ayahuasca presents incredible potential for healing individuals and populations burdened with the collective traumas of history. In this talk, Tony will share how confronting his own ancestral and identity-related trauma resulted in a journey of transformation. He will also discuss the transformations he has witnessed during his 25 years of work in the Ayahuasca space and why the incorporation of music in ceremonial contexts is crucial to this healing process, and this talk will present both his evidence for this assumption along with the music he will play live.
Psychedelics for Passion and Purpose | Jerry B. Brown, Ph.D.
This presentation explores how psychedelics can reveal our soul’s innermost purpose. It is based on entheogenic experiences that were seminal in helping speaker Jerry B.
