A wonderful new psychedelic friend , the lovely Jasmine Virdi of Synergetic Press and Cosmic Sister joins the Nod this week.
Jasmine is a writer, editor, proofreader and educator who raises awareness about the benefits and risks of sacred plant medicines and encourages people to make informed choices about their therapeutic potential and transformational capacities. By sharing the socio-historical context in which these substances emerged, Jasmine hopes to help people integrate them into their lives in a safe and meaningful way while protecting indigenous ethnobotanical practices and their environments.
Since 2018 she has been a writer, editor and social media coordinator for the fiercely independent Synergetic Press where her passions for ecology, ethnobotany and psychoactive substances converge. 
She has published articles for Psychedelics Today, Chacruna.Net, Lucid News, Entheonation and OPEN foundation.  She recently spoke at Psyched2020 as well as Earthdance Vision 2020. 
For reference we recorded this back in late March. Jasmine does PR for a really cool literary publishing company called Synergetic Press and had sent me an email about having a few of their authors on as guests.  They put out a lot of books about psychedelics and mindfullness and in general seem very passionate and righteous in their artistic quest.  While this sounded cool, I had stumbled upon some of Jasmine's own writing and videos and was more interested in having her on the show first. 
I genuinely enjoy seeking out people who haven't told their stories yet and while I would love to have some of said Synergetic authors on in the future I'm so happy that I was able to have Jasmine on as even since we had this talk her profile as a writer and educator has exploded. 
Jasmine and I talk about her journey as a traveler, student and writer in the world of plant medicine.  We discuss our early impressions of the COVID world (this was in late March) and share various experiences with psychedelics and community.
