Our friends at ICEERS just launched a 30-day Ayahuasca Defense Fund crowdfunding campaign and they need our help to transform gratitude to generosity! Plant teachers have helped so many, however these practices are still being criminalized and action is needed.
We’re staring into the face of a sixth mass extinction. Plant teachers and the ancestral knowledge systems that surround them are helping humanity to wake up and remember what it truly means to be human and to choose the path of regeneration, of hope, and of being the ancestors our great-grandchildren need us to be.
Yet these plant teachers are getting caught in the nets of drug control. Indigenous and non-indigenous people who work with plants − such as ayahuasca, iboga, mushrooms, coca, and others − are being prosecuted for their roles as facilitators, curanderos, healers, and teachers. They’ve been arrested in Spain, the United States, Chile, Russia, and 24 other countries.
Since 2016 the ICEERS Ayahuasca Defense Fund team has been steady and committed – we’ve helped with over 110 cases in just 3 years and the number of arrests is rising. We need your help to continue this critical work helping people who’ve been arrested, preventing legal incidents, and promoting sensible policy.
Together we can liberate plant teachers!
