In the Garden of Eden, Eve tasted the apple of the Sacred Tree of Knowledge, a mythos that repressed both the Feminine and expanded awareness, merging them with the shadow side. Femtheogenic consciousness refers to the deep sources of wisdom that are held within the archetypal feminine and entheogenic journeys. The exile of Femtheogenic Consciousness has alienated us from ourselves, each other, Nature, and our link to what we once knew as the World Soul, leading us to a deep imbalance and a crisis that is both collective and individual. What does it mean to reclaim these links and how can they inform our current political economic, spiritual, and social systems?
Maria is a BACP accredited counsellor and psychotherapist. She has worked as a therapist for 13 years, in the fields of mental health and education, alongside her private practice. She has also been contributing to forums like Breaking Convention, Burning Man, and Boom Festival, supporting the re-introduction of psychedelic agents in psychotherapy. Entheogens and Healing have been major reference points of interest for many years. In Psychedelic Science the two are able to join and she explores the sacramental and healing properties of entheogens, and how these can foster development and the growth of human and societal tacit potential.
