    Facebook: Ena Vie and Howard Lipp

    Topics:


    Addictions
    How we are addicted to our thinking
    Plant spirit medicine and Psychedelics as anti-addiction medicine
    Music as sanity - how Howard grew up as a musician
    Howard's experience in an Addiction treatment center and how an experience with 'Soma' helped him to overcome the roots of his addictions
    The Soma in this case may well have been derived from Amanita muscaria
    Ena's life story of growing up in a strong Christian community and eventually breaking away from that
    The importance of community and how their ministry is about creating a positive loving community
    Authentic self - what it is and how to discover it
    How to know what to do
    Traditions and living lineages - the need for spirituality and traditions to evolve with each generation, rather than holding to a fixed view of how it is supposed to be. Howard shares from his Hebrew culture how the Torah and other scriptures are meant to be living and evolving with each generation.
    Everything is energy consciousness

    There is a beacon calling you home.

    It is the song of your soul.

    Come listen with us a while.

    We will help you hear the music.

    The song of your essence,

    the divine spark that’s you,

    is the song that calls you home.

    Keala Rafana
