About The Event
Psychedelic Professionals Meetup Groups are happening! Let's keep Colorado on the leading edge of psychedelic medicine work by coming together in community to learn, share, and grow. Each Psychedelic Professionals Meetup Group starts with an informative topic relevant to research, practice, policy, or activism around psychedelic medicines, followed by open discussion and an opportunity to connect with like-minded others.
For our June meetup, we are excited to welcome an amazing panel to help us examine power, privilege, culture, and the psychedelic movement from the experiences and perspectives of Black and Indigenous persons in the community and other Persons of Color. Please help us welcome: Veronica Lightninghorse, Iskõn Rawa, Sabrina Frometa, Renee Chacon and an Indigenous Elder from the Indigenous Voices group. This will be a very important conversation for all of us to engage, please mark your calendars and plan to join us!
Iskõn Rawa. I am a Wisdom Keeper of my lineages and traditions. My formal training is in the field of education and sociology. Currently my practice is focus on mastering the teachings of Toltec Shamanism and walking the path of Traditional Amazonian Plant Medicine. In addition, I have begun to study Jungian Analysis to increase my own understandings of society and mental health.
Veronica Lightning Horse Perez is of mixed Indigenous ancestry, and speaks as A woman of color not for Indigenous people or any BIPOC community. She has served in a healing capacity most of her life but only fully stepped into that role for the past decade. Her mission is to serve in any capacity she is called to, and awareness and harm reduction in the psychedelic realm is paramount to our relationships with each other and our shared, and very wounded Mother Earth.
If you have ideas for topics or presentations for these meetup groups or would like to be more involved, please contact us! Please support the Mercury Cafe by purchasing food or drink during our event.
