“The aim of medicine is to create an even bigger, deeper, extra thorough expertise of our internal functioning, our bodily functioning, our emotional functioning, our energetic functioning, our non secular functioning, our relational functioning, how we’re with the land,” stated creator and consciousness guide Françoise Bourzat. “… Mushrooms convey it to your face, like, ‘That is your sickness.’ By  realizing your sickness, you resolve your sickness, you cope with it, you deal with it from inside your self. The mushroom helps you see the reality.”

Bourzat, creator of Consciousness Medicine, gave a chat on Nov. 14 at UC Berkeley’s Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology, alongside an exhibit, Pleasure, Poison, Prescription and Prayer: The Worlds of Thoughts-Altering Substances, which ran from March 15 to Dec. 15. Bourzat, a counselor who’s skilled in somatic psychology, has been mentored within the Mexican Mazatec custom of the sacred mushrooms, and has been sharing her strategy internationally for 30 years.

“So, you perceive your self, you see your reality,” stated Bourzat, “and by seeing that, the sunshine of this consciousness cures you, actually. It’s your internal consciousness and your internal readability that may really result in therapeutic, your stream, and your acceptance and your understanding. And when you get issues inside your self, then you might be touching therapeutic, which isn’t to cope with a pathology. You simply holistically maintain your internal course of otherwise, understanding the intricacy of why, when, how, what it was that was blocked. It’s a deep technique of understanding and of readability and of your performing from realizing and from compassion.”
