In this episode, Joe Moore interviews Courtney Watson, LMFT. Watson is the Founder of Access To Doorways; an Oakland based non-profit aimed at bringing psychedelic-assisted therapy to QTBIPOC communities. Watson talks about ancestral veneration and ways to connect with one’s ancestral past; Black resilience; Hoodoo; the sentience of plants; traditional African religions; and the concept of “spirit-devoid” synthesized compounds actually being the evolution of those plants’ spirits. She also breaks down thoughtful considerations for queer and trans people in the psychedelic space, pointing out that while our society places too much emphasis on gender and sex, the acknowledgement of gender diversity and tearing down of the myths of hetero- and cisnormativity is hugely important towards the healing (and equality) of all.
