—"One of the pillars of integrating psychedelics is exploring the relationship we have with death. This is a matter of integrating the reality of death—death in general and your death in particular—into your experience of living.

Integrating death, as a part of the larger integration of your work with psychedelics, is ultimately a spiritual preparation. “There is no fundamental difference between the preparation for death and the practice of dying,” Stan Grof has wisely said, “and spiritual practice leading to enlightenment.”

We believe humanity’s intention in the universe is to embody the experience of understanding, compassion, kindness, peace with the unknown and ultimately unconditional love, and going forth to share it. Enlightenment is what happens when there is nothing left to grasp, nothing left to fear, nothing but love. There may still be questions but there is no grasping for answers. There is awareness. If you open the cracks in awareness there is love.”
