In this episode, Mareesa speaks about her consciousness journey, rebelling against her born again Christian background and finding revelation and answers through psychedelics at the age of 19. She discusses what followed, including Gaia TV series “The Healing Powers,” Lucid News and the Psychedelic Orientation Series, film projects and journeys that brought her around the world, meeting god on a psilohuasca journey, and her mission henceforth, including but not limited to bringing the Sphynx Gate to Burning Man post Covid19.
