Entheogens have long been used as catalysts for spiritual and visionary experiences. Many of these, which people report in shamanic journeys show similarities to those described by Jung in his explorations of the human psyche. This is especially evident in the process of individuation. It could be argued that shamanism and Jungian analysis are concerned with what shamans call “soul loss/soul retrieval,” what Jung might call withdrawal of projections toward individuation. Entheogens have been and are being used in shamanic practice as catalysts for exploring inner psychic realities. These two systems are complementary and mutually enhancing in the process of individuation, which ultimately helps us to reconnect with our own deepest nature. Plant medicines can be seen as substances, but also as emissaries, whose purpose is to catalyze consciousness in humans. Entheogens are the emissaries of Gaia, their sole purpose is to speed up the evolve of consciousness. Entheogens are unique technology, that shape and are shaped by the unique social and cultural conditions.
Jung had it right that we should live part of our life internally. We should do deep self-exploration, which also means transformation. And then combine, somehow in our everyday life, the deep knowledge and wisdom that could come from these states.
The transpersonal experiences revealing the Earth as an intelligent, conscious entity are corroborated by scientific evidence. Gregory Bateson, who created a brilliant synthesis of cybernetics, information, and systems theory, the theory of evolution, anthropology, and psychology came to the conclusion that it was logically inevitable to assume that mental processes occurred at all levels in any system or natural phenomenon of sufficient complexity. He believed that mental processes are present in cells, organs, tissues, organisms, animal and human groups, ecosystems, and even the earth and universe as a whole.
