Redefining Psychedelic Exploration: Experience & Growth with Acacea Sherman-Lewis

Acacea Sherman-Lewis : Redefining Psychedelic Exploration: Experience & Growth, Episode 156, The Psychedelic Entrepreneur Podcast



Tune in to a fascinating episode of ‘Medicine for These Times’ to hear Beth Weinstein and Acacea Sherman-Lewis discuss how Acacea bridges the gap between Western philosophy and religion, and animistic, polytheistic non-Western traditions through storytelling, research, and traditional entheogenic practices.

Acacea shares her personal journey from being homeschooled and exploring her obsession with science and botany to developing her school, Divine Master Alchemy, where she teaches about the use of entheogens in various cultures and how these practices can deepen our understanding of ourselves and the world. 

Beth and Acacea also discuss the broader implications of using psychedelic substances for self-discovery, highlighting the importance of internal transformation and service over ‘self-help’. Acacea offers listeners a glimpse into the future of her unique brand of psychedelic education, which includes the development of an interactive VR ‘book’ designed to deepen engagement with entheogenic plants and practices.
