Non-psychedelic Entheogens: Kambô, Rapé, Sananga and other Indigenous Medicines

Posted by fwd-admin on
 kalliopi-tavoulari-150The word ‘Enthoegen’ is commonly used to describe a medicine that generates the divine within and often associated with substances that produce altered states of consciousness during sacred ceremonies or rituals.  Frequently these indigenous rituals are accompanied with other plant substances and derivatives that facilitate these ceremonies.
Contrary to popular belief some of the most potent and traditional substances, although entheogenic in their own fashion, do not lead to a psychedelic experience, rather they are healer plants that promote the wellbeing of both body and soul and result in a feeling of deep connection with the Earth and the Elements surrounding us, they are also powerful plant derivatives with extraordinary conventional medicinal potential.

In the talk that will follow we will investigate some of the better known auxiliary entheogens such as  Rapé the Sacred Snuff,  Kambô the magic Frog Medicine and Sananga the ‘Eye Opener’.
