EGA Garden States Live Broadcast
Written by enadmin7 on March 18, 2019
Entheogenesis Australis returns with a full day event on Mother’s Day (Sunday 12th of May), to be held at Springvale Town Hall.
Enpsychedelia will be broadcasting live from EGA’s Garden States. The panel is, “The Thin Green Line” and will be looking at laws surrounding plants and their connection to the global prohibition agenda.
Join us for a full day of ethnobotanical knowledge sharing and discussion on psychedelic plants and culture. The symposium will be an indoor community gathering comprised of keynote lectures, panel discussions, workshops and a market space all celebrating the sacred garden and value of the botanic world.
Please let any like-minded friends know about the symposium and encourage them to join us on May 12 for a day of critical thinking about psychedelic plants and related compounds.
Two international presenters Charly Bedrossian and David Nickles will join a host of botanically minded local talent for a full day of programming over two spaces. In keeping with the mother plants two Australian female elders, Aunty Fran Bodkin and Monica Gagliano will be presenting on the day.
Scientist and D’harawal Elder Aunty Fran Bodkin will present a lecture on plant associations between medicinal native species from a holistic perspective incorporating both Western and Indigenous science. Fran is the author of the legendary ‘Encyclopedia Botanica: The essential reference guide to native and exotic plants in Australia’, which contains over 11,000 entries on Australian native plants.
Scientist and author Monica Gagliano, PhD will speak on plant communication, sentience and the new field of bioacoustics. Monica is the author of the recent book ‘Thus Spoke the Plant’ and has travelled the globe speaking about the value of the botanic world with such luminaries of the botany scene as Michael Pollan.
The Cannabis College (Amsterdam) head gardener Charly Bedrossian will be sharing his knowledge on the cannabis industry and cannabis law, the importance of education, and cultivation techniques gained from years of experience in the field.
We will also be joined by one of the most outspoken representatives of the psychedelic underground, David Nickles (USA) of the DMT-Nexus, who will be giving both a keynote address on cutting edge ethnopharmacological research endeavours and hosting a discussion group on seed sharing and Psychedelic Sustainability.
