2-Hour Live Workshop Dates & Times
- Option 1: Thurs Mar 18, 2pm - 4pm US Eastern

In this Live Workshop series, you’ll discover:
- The most common misunderstandings people have about the cultural appropriation of plant medicines, and what to do about this
- The harm that comes from unintentionally weaponizing well-meaning spiritual truisms in racialized society, and the antidote to this
- How unexamined colonialism and white supremacy creates harm in the plant medicine community, and how to heal this
- What reciprocity means in the plant medicine sector, and the myriad ways you can activate it for yourself or in your organization
- Strategies on decolonizing your psychedelic therapy practice, organization, coaching company or medicine circle so it is safe, accessible and inclusive for BIPOC
This workshop is ideal for anyone who is deepening their work with plant medicines, and wishes to do so with integrity, respect and reciprocity to the indigenous cultures that have long held them sacred, especially if you are:
- A psychedelic ceremony facilitator, guide, tripsitter, retreat company owner, integration therapist or coach who works with ancestral plant medicines.
- You are a transformational coach, healer, integration therapist or specialist that works with clients who participate in plant medicine ceremonies, recommends plant medicines as transformational tools, or organizes transformational plant medicine retreats as part of your coaching program.
- You are a psychedelic startup founder, executive, manager or employee who wishes to further racial inclusivity, accessibility, or create a social responsibility program that supports plant medicine sustainability or indigenous communities.
- You are a regular plant medicine ceremony participant who feels an authentic connection to the plant spirits and wishes to deepen this path of spiritual inquiry with respect and integrity.
About Your Instructor
Lorna Liana is the Host of The Plant Spirit Summit and founder of EntheoNation, a media platform that publishes educational content about psychedelics, modern shamanism and visionary culture.
In 18 years of working intentionally with psychedelics for healing and personal growth, Lorna came to understand the extent in which racial trauma pervades communities of color, especially black, brown, and indigenous communities in white-dominated, colonized countries, plus the promise of psychedelic medicine to heal this trauma.
Her activist work in indigenous rights and cultural preservation has brought her to:
- The highlands of Chiapas, where she spent time has a human rights observer in an indigenous Zapatista community, documenting the Mexican government’s campaign of low-intensity warfare against indigenous highlight communities,
- The lowlands of the Ecuadorian Amazon, to bear witness to the largest oil spill on the planet and biggest environmental lawsuit in history
- India, Nepal, and Tibet, to distribute aid to Tibetan communities in exile, people who fled persecution by the Chinese Communist government
- A multitude of indigenous communities in restricted territories of Acre Brazil, as a guest of Huni Kuin, Yawanawá, Ashaninka, Kuntanawa and Puyanawa tribes
