Her more recent research is grounded in humanity’s rich history of embodied spirituality: where intentional sexuality and psychoactive plant medicines are fully integrated into healing and spiritual practice. She recently graduated from the Consciousness Studies program at Goddard College, writing her master’s thesis on healing through altered states. She has presented at the Psymposia Conference at the University of Massachussetts Amherst, the Desiree Alliance Conference, and the Gratitude Festival and writes for AlterNet and Reality Sandwich.

Editrice could pass for a young Auntie Mame. Which I intend as a compliment having only just read that novel. Hot photo.

What a wonderful blog. I spend hours on the internet reading blogs, about tons of different subjects. I have to first of all give kudos to whoever created your website and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an post. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only a few posses and frankly you have it. The combination of informative and quality content is definitely extremely rare with the large amount of blogs on the internet.

Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your theme. Many thanks

Hey i just read your article on Ketamine and was pleasantly surprised by the legitimacy of your research and your optimistic outlook. I hate having to clarify for people all of the time how it’s not as harmful as society portrays it. You should do some more articles on drugs and the realistic long term effects/ societal myths surrounding recreational abuse. One I’ve been curious about lately is sassafras.

Comment from thedailytransmission - June 20, 2012 at 2:37 am

Hi Courtney, thanks for the feedback! I am of the opinion that there are no good or bad drugs, just good and bad ways of using them. I think most important is that people have access to non-biased and realistic information about substances so they can use them intelligently. I will definitely do more articles like this in the future. I don’t know that much about sassafras other than as a precursor ingredient for MDMA, but now you’ve made me want to do some research. 🙂

Hi Britta, I just found you after reading your recent article on Alternet: “How Sex and Drugs Saved My Life (and Could Save the World).” Love the article and the entire practice.

I am working with cannabis mostly and ayahuasca less so to help clear some early childhood trauma (violent father) that has affected me more than I knew all my life. I am doing most of this in a self guided way and wonder if you could shed some light on some specific ways/practices that are most efficacious for getting through this sort of thing, using both drugs and sex, since this has also created fears around intimacy.

My primary (unconscious) reaction (from childhood) has been fear, distance and withdrawal, which as also affected my ability to earn money, which limits any sort of “paid” assistance (counselors, etc). It is a bit of a bind, hence the self guided activities. A sexual healer would be wonderful to able to connect with as well as practices/exercises to do while using cannabis/aya. Any suggestions or directions would be much appreciated. BTW I am in Los Angeles.

Hello Britta… Just read your article on the ten reasons to halt the war on drugs and sex workers. I just wanted to say that I thought you did a great job with it. It’s refreshing to find other people that know the truth, and that realize that the system is actually criminal. People accept the idea that these things should be illegal when the fact is that the prohibition of these things is not only unjust, it’s unnatural, and does us great harm. There is no logic behind it. Animals, including man, have been actively seeking out mind altering substances since the beginning of time. None of them were illegal until about 100 years ago, and the sky never fell before that during the thousands of years of legality. Now, we put people in jail and shame them for wanting to feel good. It is absolutely insane, and people think it’s normal, and necessary. A very good read. Let’s change this mindset and create a better place to live for everyone.
