Oh and I'd avoid participating in anything that involves any form of psychedelics and uses the words "retreat", "healing" or "shaman". That shit isn't only bogus and gross but it's also potentially dangerous.
oh yeah, fuck that. but i will say i've never eaten shrooms by myself, and feel like it might not be super enjoyable as a purely solo experience for me. i need to be with good friends - people i can trust. so many wonderful memories along the way.

Hell yeah, I preach the gospel of forums when I can, it's really not been replaced by social media. It's kind of a relic of the internet when people thought it'd be this independent, anarchic utopian thing instead of consolidating into 5 Websites For All Your Needs, and the interaction is different in this format (and better if you ask me)
Finding anything you saw more than five minutes ago on FB is a dire experience. And the endless onslaught of unsolicited drivel is unacceptable. I use it under a bs name and profile linked to a bs email address so the data they have for me is worth less than zero and I really avoid posting anything to feed their algorithm or add to my digital tattoo.
I use it because some friends and relatives are only reachable via fb and we need it as a federated authentication source for work projects so it has become a necessary evil, but it's more evil than necessary.
