Giving up the Green Bitch: Reflections on Cannabis, Ayahuasca and the Mystery of Plant Teachers.

By Graham Hancock

I have some personal stuff to share here and I intend to do so with complete openness in the hope that my experiences will prove helpful to some, thought-provoking to others, and might stir up discussion around issues of consciousness and cognitive liberty that are often neglected in our society.

It’s obvious that we’re not fulfilling our purpose here on this planet. I mean, it’s an incredible opportunity to be born in a human body and to be gifted by the universe with this amazing, vibrant garden of a homeland that we call planet Earth.
