We offer a platform for entheogenic research, integration and education. ERIE is not only a hub of integration information for entheogenic and transpersonal experiences, we also host peer integration circles to facilitate meaning-making and community building. We host monthly educational events including symposiums, forums, and conferences on varied topics surrounding entheogenic research and activism.
We are dedicated to supporting cognitive liberty by offering a learning environment to support grassroots education and outreach on the topics of integration and entheogenic potentials.
ERIE envisions an integral worldview that is suited to a meaningful and mysterious cosmos. We believe that this perspective is necessary to achieve a healthy, sustainable future for our species and for the biosphere. The integral view entails remembering our once-respectful relationship with nature and the lessons that she has to offer us and incorporating it with the best of modern discoveries.
Over 30 million people in the United States have taken a psychedelic (Krebs & Johansen, 2013) As an educational organization, our goal is to inform and assist those who choose to explore entheogens about the potent effects of these powerful psychic amplifiers. This includes integration, an educational process of discovery of the self, the community, and the environment.
Entheogens have been used since prehistory by Indigenous peoples, through their respectful, intimate relations with Nature. We strive to coordinate ancient Indigenous wisdom with contemporary research to produce a composite picture that is meaningful and relevant to the lives of contemporary Westerners.
