Ancient Essentials: Return To Ritual

Deepen Your Relationship with Ritual and Ceremony

Greetings, dear one

Welcome! I’m so grateful that you’ve landed here.

If you’re like me, and grew up learning Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, you learned about your basic physical needs.

But how many of you grew up receiving the teachings from elders or mentors often found in traditional cultures that anchor ritual and ceremony as core essentials for a healthy life?

And with all the noise that we navigate, how do we nourish that which is truly essential?

As I see it, we’re a culture with more abundance than it knows what to do with,

and yet we’re often starving.

We’re starving because we’re disconnected from what’s truly essential.

Just as healthy water is essential, so too, are ceremony and ritual

If you feel this way too, and would like more ritual and ceremony in your daily life, we’ve gathered this bundle for you!

Is Ancient Essentials For Me?

Are you curious about psychedelics and the more ceremonial aspects of these medicines?

Or would you like to connect with more rituals in your life?

Would you love to learn how to build a personal altar from an elder grandmother, or to open and close a ceremonial container with meditations and prayers?

Are you curious to connect with your dream team of allies, ancestors, the spirits of the psychedelic medicines themselves, learn prayers and practices to connect with your creativity, clear your energy and tap into a deeper level of listening?

These are some of the reasons that Ancient Essentials may be right for you!

The Power of Asking For Help

As psychedelic sacraments enter the mainstream as potent healing tools,

receiving eldership and mentorship to create rituals that support the journeys

and transform them into powerful ceremonies

is essential.

It’s actually dangerous and ungrounding to open containers into other realms of consciousness without the right support.

And, the blessing is that there’s so much support available to each of us!

It’s for these reasons that we gathered Ancient Essentials –an introductory bundle to support you as you deepen your relationship with the ritual, sacred, and ceremonial aspects of a psychedelically informed life.

Modern Science and Ancient Wisdom Mentors

This beautiful collection was carefully curated from recordings at our sold-out Esalen workshop + salon series.

Ancient Essentials bundle is a collection of pre-recorded, short practices (no longer than 20 minutes), curated to be woven into your daily life with ease.

Some of these practices were passed on only through direct oral teaching environments and have now been shared for greater accessibility.

About Entheowheel

Entheowheel is the collaborative creation of Dream Mullick and an incredible visionary team of mostly volunteers, community sponsors and grassroots funders. The vision was born as an experiment at the edge of our Western World, quite literally, on the cliffs of Big Sur at Esalen Institute, birthplace of the Human Potential Movement.

Our intention is to explore our edges and bridge the chasm that exists between indigenous sacred plants “original science” and the modern science and study of Psychedelic medicines. Everything we do and create orients around these intentions:

Our Roots

We honor the role of the guides, their lineages and the setting in which they hold their ceremonies. Whenever possible, we work with medicine carriers from the original lineages, asking their permission and guidance and centering their voices. 

Inclusion

As an expression of our commitment to bridging diverse perspectives within the sacred plant and psychedelic medicine communities, we do our best to make programming accessible for ALL. Need some extra support? Click here for a scholarship.

Reciprocity

10% of all revenues from the Livestream event at Esalen was committed to the preservation and conservation of sacred lands and traditional medicine lineages, including The Esselen Tribe’s land restoration initiative. Additionally, 30% of participants received Visionary Scholarships as a commitment to our diversity and inclusion efforts.

Medicine Use

Entheowheel’s work is designed to  support you in future sacred plant and psychedelic medicine journeys by introducing you to the power of preparation, integration and ceremony. This is not intended as a course on how to trip at home or have un-guided journeys. The greatest invitation is to explore the sacred spirit and wisdom of  plant medicine, receive the teachings and practices for best preparation and allow the integration of the experience to be the true medicine.

Reciprocity and our deep commitment to honoring all the influences that inform our work, is at the core of our ever-evolving model.

The Prophecy of the Eagle & the Condor

“Back in the mists of history, human societies took two routes.
The Eagle Peoples flew the path of the mind, of science, technology, & industry. The Condor Peoples flew the path of the heart, of passion, intuition, & spiritual connections with nature.”

The day will come when the Eagle & the Condor fly together in the same sky, wing to wing, and our World will come into balance.

“My prayer is that Ancient Essentials nourishes your connection with ritual and ceremony as you cultivate a deeper relationship with the wild dance of being fully human!
May the seeds of these practices continue to blossom in your daily life and in your deeper journey with psychedelic sacraments.

Many blessings,
Dream.”
