It's time for Your Community Science Class! On today's Community Love Power Experience, we continue the exploration of Emotional Literacy and Mental Health. On last’s week’s experience, we defined emotional literacy, looked at many of the factors that affect our emotional literacy, including mental illness, internalized racism, economic disenfranchisement, which leads to the need for more tools to enhance our emotional wellness.
This week we are taking a slightly deeper look at some of the tools, strategies and methods that are being used to address our mental and emotional health. We’re exploring the entheogens – the spirit healing plants and fungi.
Are these substances truly viable solutions for our mental and emotional wellbeing? This experience is a physical, mental and spiritual journey that might just be a great way to achieve greater emotional literacy through the unfiltered experience of our altered selves?
