The Entheogenesis Australis YouTube channel Entheo TV present video contact from past Symposiums and event. The content presented cannot cover all the information and material regarding such a diverse area of study. It is merely a starting point to be used in conjunction with other source material and research to explore the discourse surrounding plant and related compounds and their potential benefits in research, pharmacology, botany, sustainability and culture. Some of the practices and ideas our speakers describe are embedded in cultural and religious traditions that may inform and reduce the risks associated with their use. Research, due diligence and caution is recommended when working with medicinal plants. EGA supports a facts-based approach towards plant-based ‘drug use’, research and policy development.
