If western consumer culture is swallowing everything in its path, what happens when it consumes plant medicines? Will the plants ultimately become corrupted by the toxicity of the modern world, or are these emissaries of the plant kingdom a key part of the earth’s immune response? There is an idea that as soon as we bring money into the equation we make the sacred into the profane, and that a real shaman would never accept money for their services. At the same time, in the world we live in today, healers need to eat and feed their family too. This panel ultimately seeks to explore the concept of right relationship between sacred medicines and money.
