At the top of the hour, beloved and respected community elder Selena Fox of Circle Sanctuary will discuss celebrating the cycles of the seasons and community. 

Crossing the threshold into the second half of the show, Michael Horowitz and/or Cynthia Palmer will discuss their book, Sisters of the Extreme, Women Writing on the Drug Experience, which captures the drug experiences of women from diverse times, social backgrounds and professions in memoir, fiction, poetry, song and art.  As listeners well know, there is a dearth of information out there on women's history of all kinds but this book details the mythic associations of ancient history and the rituals of indigenous peoples, through to the rampant opiate intocixation of the Victorian era, to the psychedelic pioneers, junkies and anthropologists of the 20th century - and more - all through the lens of women.   Yes, we'll get into their "after visions," revelations and the healing powers of sacred plants as the authors tell the effects, good and bad,  of opium, LSD, peyote, mushrooms and other forms of psychedelics.
