Thank you for working in your communities to liberate our relationships with consciousness-healing plants and fungi. We at the DN National Board offer our resources and any support we can so you may be successful in educating your communities and transforming the awareness about these powerful entheogenic allies. Our role is to be present and available to support local efforts, and to steward the values and principles that underlie the core essence of the movement to decriminalize nature: Love, and its offspring’s Compassion, Justice, and Cooperation.

This Handbook may be a great tool and guide for you, but when building a people-led movement, nothing can replace the experience of engaging in face-to-face discourse and engagement. So, please reach out once you’ve read the materials so we can discuss strategy, tactics, and goals together.

On June 4th, 2019, more than 150 people showed up to tell their stories to the Oakland City Council about healing with these plant and fungi allies. Those who spoke fell into four camps: the Iboga/Ibogaine camp, the Ayahuasca/DMT camp, the psilocybin mushroom camp, and the mescaline cacti camp. Each person spoke about personal healing experiences that transpired as he or she engaged in symbiotic relationships with specific plant or fungi allies. At the same time, everyone was aware that he or she belonged to the same village: Nature. Everyone there, including the elected officials, seemed to recognize that a new movement was upon us — a movement to heal our relationship with nature and each other through partnership with these entheogens.

We stand at a historical crossroad, a key transition point in our relationship with nature and each other. Our entheogenic allies enable us to heal, understand, and mature our relationships with ourselves, each other, and the planet that birthed us and to which we belong.

Join us in spreading awareness of these entheogenic plants and fungi. Join the movement to decriminalize our relationship with nature so we may shift the balance to rebuild a more cooperative, just, and caring world.

Thank you and look forward to hearing from you soon, Decriminalize Nature National Board…
