Psychoactive Substances and their Impact on the Organic Farming and Ecology Movements

The past 50 years have seen a significant shift in consciousness about the beauty, vitality, fragility, and interdependence of species on our planet. This awareness has been stimulated by hallucinogens or techniques such as shamanic ritual, self-hypnosis, and lucid dreaming. Many people working in organic agriculture and political activism on behalf of the environment were first radicalized by experiences with psychoactive drugs. After 40 years of neglect and vilification, these substances are again the subject of research and popular interest. This workshop will explore the experiences and insights of organic farmers and consumers. The speakers will present the history and re-emergence of research on these substances as tools for medicinal therapy and instruments for self-exploration and betterment.
