Happy Autumn (to everyone in the Northern hemisphere)- we hope you are enjoying this colourful season of transition! As the days grow shorter and colder and the earth pulls her green gifts back into herself, we start to turn inwards, as well.

In our first article, we were inspired by the season, and talked about witches as practitioners of shamanic flight in Europe. We looked at their legendary flying ointment from a chemical perspective, and learned about its properties and dangers.

The first Oneironauticum in San Francisco had the dreamers working with our Spagyric Initiatic of Xhosa Dream Plant, Silene capensis. This is a powerful ally for dreaming and a very interesting plant, but it is not widely known in the healing or entheogen community.

Connected to this work, the Oneironauticums are gatherings of people dreaming together [...]
