2 AM Cathy Coyle: Wisdom from the Ancient Mushroom Cults of Thessaly and the Prophetic Poets of Ireland

Cathy will delve into the enigmatic world of ancient mushroom shamanism, uncovering its profound relevance for women today. She will explore the rich tapestry of Europe's spiritual landscape, beginning with the ancient women's mysteries of the Thessaly mushroom cults. These cults not only highlight the shamanistic origins of entheogenic mushroom use in Europe but also underscore the spiritual dimension of mushroom work—a path increasingly embraced by women today for its deep healing and service potential. We will also traverse the mystical realms of ancient Ireland’s Soma cults and the Irish strand of a vast Indo-European tradition of psychedelic shamanism. We will focus on the secret rituals of this tradition and on the entheogenic roots of "poetic frenzy"—the intrinsic link between spiritual intoxication and divine inspiration. This talk invites you to rediscover and reclaim the legacy of these powerful, ancient practices, demonstrating their timeless significance for women's empowerment, healing, and spiritual fulfillment in today's world.
