Culture & Spirituality

Culture & Spirituality are in many ways intertwined. A culture is a matter of how we think the world ‘works.’ Coming into play here is language, knowledge, beliefs, assumptions, principles and values. Culture shapes the way in which we see the world, and how we view ourselves within the world.

Spirituality is profoundly intuitive. But it is not always consciously expressed. It is about the intuitive way in which we feel connectedness to the world in which we live. The most common cultural representation of spirituality is religion, a predominantly institutionalised and structured system of beliefs and rituals that form the channels of worship of the religion’s supernatural god, or gods.

Psychedelics and plant medicines influence both culture and spirituality in many ways; from giving us new perspectives about our purpose in life, to changing the ways we appreciate art and music.
