“How Sex and Drugs Saved My Life (and Could Save the World),” a new article by Britta Love, a recent graduate in the Consciousness Studies concentration of the Individualized MA program, is based on the work of her thesis. Published on Alternet.org, Love writes about her own experience in finding wholeness and direction, concluding that:

It will take the rapid opening of humanity’s collective sensory gating channels, the correction of this fundamentally flawed paradigm, to change this course. Through the process of embracing the shadow, of re-associating and reconnecting, of finding healing and spiritual awareness, we can collectively shift away from the destructive path we are on. It is time to re-sacralize nature and the cosmos, to find our way back to reconnection and reintegration, to an understanding of the interconnectivity and intelligence of all life, before it’s too late. I believe the careful and intentional use of sex and psychedelics is our best hope for quickly catalyzing that change.

Read the whole article here, and check out several videos with Britta here, discussing her journey into embodiment studies and consciousness studies at Goddard.

Britta Love is a writer and activist who is passionate about sex and drugs, believing that sexual freedom and cognitive liberty are fundamental human rights. Britta is based in Brooklyn, NY where she gives monthly talks at the Tarot Society Gallery and Reading Room, writes a blog on sex, drugs and consciousness (www.TheDailyTransmission.com) and advocates for the ibogaine movement and the Sex Worker’s Outreach Project.
