Who are we?
We are the Other People. We are they who are of the ancient ways.
We are about Ancient Wisdom, Modern Science and the enlightening and healing powers of the Sacred Cannabis plant and other Sacred Entheogens.
Kantheistic Shamanism, known also as The Path of Ecstasy, is the world’s oldest religion. It is a religion, not of dogma, but of experience.

integrity of the universe, in ourselves as integral parts of the whole; that reveals to us the
sublime majesty of our universe, and the fluctuant, scintillant, alchemical miracle that is
quotidian consciousness. Any religion that requires faith and gives none, that defends against
religious experiences, that promulgates the bizarre superstition that humankind is in some way separate,
divorced from the rest of creation, that heals not the gaping wound between
