Yoga & Plant Medicine
Reading / Q&A / Discussion

Join yoga teacher, author, transformational coach and host of the Medicine Path Podcast Brian James for an evening of practice, inquiry and integration. Brian will read passages from his new book, Yoga & Plant Medicine, facilitate a discussion/Q&A, and lead a guided integration meditation.

With the rise of interest in the use of plant medicines like ayahuasca, iboga and psilocybin mushrooms for healing and spiritual growth, there is a growing need for practices that help psychedelic explorers and therapy patients prepare for, navigate and integrate their experiences.

In his book Brian reveals the ways that yoga and plant medicine intersect and complement one another as powerful catalysts for personal healing, growth and psychospiritual transformation. Sharing personal stories and reflections from his own healing journey with ayahuasca, James shows how yoga offers a valuable framework and set of practices that support the intentional use of plant medicines and other psychedelics.

The core message woven through the essays in this little book is simple but profound: yoga and psychedelics are both paths to the heart. When approached with respect and care, these paths can lead to a life of greater freedom, harmony and joy.

Copies of Brian's book will be available for purchase for $20.
