“Beyond Psychedelics – How to mobilize your own inner Brain Chemistry for Altered States of Consciousness”

Ever wondered how psychedelics impact your brain and create the experiences they do? Most psychedelics work as copies of original neurotransmitters that we naturally have in the brain. In our culture we don’t usually learn how to identify these magical neurotransmitters and how to mobilize them without needing to rely on external substances to create an Altered State of Consciousness experience. In this workshop you will learn the basic brain chemistry of psychedelics and how to identify the original neurotransmitters that create Altered States of Consciousness. You will learn practices to fine tune your perception, learn about herbs that support rather than numb your own neurotransmitters, and learn about ways you can connect to the Natural Highs Community and get involved in a grassroots movement to empower yourself and your community.

Philosophy Circles – Deep Dialogues with Strangers
Natural Highs Community

Do you hate small talk? Do you want to connect with others in deep, meaningful ways? In our current culture of cell phones, social media and increasing anxiety, it is sometimes challenging to initiate deep meaningful connection. The Natural Highs Community developed a format of deep dialogue that allows immediate deep connection with others whether you are friends or strangers. Come, learn about the ancient Yerba Mate Ritual to connect socially in nourishing ways and dive deep into profound dialogue. Lean about ways to connect to the Natural Highs Community and bring this way of social ritual and deep dialogue and connection to your communities.
