Shamanic Ceremony Leaders Join Forces to Shape Legal Strategy through the Sacred Plant Alliance

A professional organization of psychedelic churches that have historically been part of different, and sometimes conflicting lineages, hopes to build and share resources and best practices through a new organization. 

The Sacred Plant Alliance, created through the collaborative effort of multiple religious and spiritual practitioners, and incubated by the nonprofit Chacruna Institute for Psychedelic Plant Medicines, is a self-regulating body of about a dozen practitioners committed to creating and upholding standards for the ceremonial use of entheogens. In cooperation with Chacruna, the SPA has compiled materials to help advance legal protections for churches using ayahuasca, psilocybin, and other sacramental plant medicines.
