On October 12th, 2019, Kat Conour and I published We Will Call It Pala
. We sent the story to a few dozen people. We felt sure that no one would read it. We were surprised and humbled to find that many people did.
In March of 2022, I had the honor of sharing the story behind Pala
in a public talk at Esalen. That talk came in the midst of a health crisis that provoked many questions around life, death, and work in the psychedelic field. That crisis has resolved, leaving only lessons in its wake. I am now pleased to share the talk with you, with it marking the three year anniversary of We Will Call It Pala
and thanking spirit for the ways this story has brought blessings to my life.
It is a great privilege to tell stories in this movement we care for so deeply. Thank you for your support, your attention, and your time. May we continue to work together to build a better world. May we each have the courage to begin that work within.
