Challenging Roads Lead to Beautiful Places
15, curious and naive about psychedelics, my first LSD experience took me to terrifying places. It also left me hungry to make meaning from my confusing journey. To explore the mind, consciousness, and who I truly was.
Education is Not the Filling of a Pail, but the Lighting of a Fire
Following my tenacious curiosity led me to study MDMA and earn a PhD in Neuropharmacology in 2009. With the acquired knowledge, my inquiry into molecules and mysteries led to investigations at UCSF, NIH, and MAPS.
The Only Source of Knowledge is Experience
More personal experiences with plant medicines and human teachers illuminated many truths, ancient wisdom to heal and grow. With the support of wise teachers, expanded states of consciousness hold the potential for radically positive transformation.
While studying in Austin, I met Shawn Grona, a software engineer. Over the years our love evolved, and we got married. With plant teachers as our allies, we grew stronger and received a divine call to combine our skills to make a positive difference in the individual and collective experience.
