Workshop Description: Sacred Plants for Lucid Consciousness w/ Chloe Bee
The ethno-botany of Central America is abundant in sacred and ancient phyto-oneirogens: plants used ritually for exploration and divination within the dream realm. From C.Zachatechichi of the Chontol to Sinicuichi of the Aztec to Salvia Divinorum of the Mazatec, humans express a biological and mystical desire to enhance the lucidity of dream phenomena. Learn about cultural practices, safe usage, and the sorcerous beauty of wise oneiric plants, essential oils, and resins.
Integrating consciousness, plants, people, and peace has become Chloe’s modus operandi through learning lessons from the ocean, mountains, deserts, and forests as well as the diverse array of humans inhabiting them. Dance, music, and humanitarian healing emerged as compelling forces to seek intellectual stimuli, leading to a four year scholarship-induced Bachelor of Science in Sustainable Ecosystems at Arizona State University, a Minor Certificate in Dance Choreography and Performance through the University of Waikato in Hamilton, New Zealand, and a concentration of Dance in Media at the ASU Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts. Inter-spliced between exchange semesters, global backpacking, and investigating mystical roots, she completed a Summa Cum Laude graduation from the 2012 ASU School of Sustainability and interned in the Ecuadorian Andes to practice edible forestry, mycology, regenerative soil design, and rainwater-harvesting. Currently Chloe owns and operates Happy Healthy High Horny Herbs in Tempe, AZ, generating a heart-centered community hub for the alliance of earth-first thinking, ethno-botany, festival culture, psychedelic art, and natural medicine. Matured by Spirit Plant Medicine, MAPS conferences, and seasons of transformational gatherings, Chloe launched a workshop series presently thriving on community-expressed needs for the cultivation of plant wisdom and bliss. In 2013, she has facilitated talks on ethno-mycology, Cacao Ceremonies, Adaptogen workshops, love-based dance gatherings, addiction recovery, and astral projection/lucid dreaming lectures…all with the intention to honor the divine relationship between people, plants, and our planet.
