Columbus Day Weekend, Friday, October 10 to Monday, October 13, 2008 at the 1800 acre Wilbur Hot Springs in Northern California.
The Women’s Visionary Congress (WVC) is a gathering of healers, activists, researchers and artists who are redefining the use of entheogens. The WVC addresses the traditional uses of these substances and investigations into their therapeutic applications.
Women play a vital role in the medical and spiritual use of entheogens, substances that help change our consciousness. Midwives and herbalists have relied on entheogenic plants to heal and ease pain for many centuries. Female shamans in cultures throughout the world have long employed entheogens for divine inspiration. Contemporary women are now advocating for legal reforms and scientific research that could reintegrate the beneficial uses of entheogens.
Featured Speakers Include:
Ann and Sasha Shulgin
Carolyn (Mountain Girl) Garcia
June May Ruse

This gathering will benefit the Women’s Entheogen Fund (WEF) and is sponsored by the The Sibyl Society. Since 2002, the WEF has made grants to women who spend a significant portion of their professional lives studying the healing and spiritual use of entheogens
We welcome interested women and men to join us at the beautiful Wilbur Hot Springs for a healing soak and a series of conversations with visionary women.
