Less than a month until Plant Consciousness in London
Event: Plant Consciousness
Date: 26-27 September 2015
Location: Regent’s University, London
Our disconnect from the natural world has led to the disastrous situation that we now find ourselves in on planet Earth, yet our deep feelings for nature form part of our spiritual longing. The Plant Consciousness event will demonstrate in dynamic ways, how at both the microcosm and macrocosm levels we can re-establish that connection to nature and why it is essential for the development of consciousness and the well-being of the planet that we do.
We can learn so much from the inherent qualities of the plant kingdom and if we look even closer, from the intelligence that lies behind it. Bringing together the values of plant neurobiology, permaculture, deep-ecology, eco-psychology, sacred plant medicine, shamanism and herbalism you will discover a deeper understanding and a new harmony with plants and with your place in the biosphere of life on this planet.
2014’s Plant Consciousness was a fantastic event, and 2015’s promises to be even better with a dizzyingly brilliant selection of speakers including: Dennis McKenna, Satish Kumar, David Bruce Leonard, Dr Patrick Macmanaway, Pam Montgomery, Bonny Casel, shaman of the Kichwz tribe Kurikindi, Dr David Luke, Maddy Harland, Drew Dellinger, and Yann Guignon. The two day event will open minds in regard to the importance of our relationship with plants – especially in our age of environmental crises – and is not to be missed.
Moreover, Join Dennis McKenna for an evening of tales and adventure in consciousness, a stimulating Q&A, and a trip down memory lane with one of the leading lights in the field of psychedelics. For his first time in the UK, Dennis will be discussing his book ‘The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss: My Life with Terence McKenna’. He will be sharing his personal experiences of growing up with Terence, their time in the Amazon and their empirical research into psychedelics.
A well-respected researcher and thinker, Dr Dennis McKenna explores his lifelong relationship with his older brother Terence, the great raconteur of wide-reaching philosophical and eschatological ideas.This evening is an appreciation not only of the life of both brothers but of their incredible work.
