Fall Hiatus

Dear friends,

Thank you again for your support for this book project vision. In the past few weeks, I have started to feel that this blog has been becoming a bit scattered, jumping between topics and not thoroughly exploring the ones brought up. There is a LOT of information out there, and I have been getting a bit confused and bogged down by the choices I need to make.  Then I realized that ultimately, I am not even interested in just presenting information.   I want this book to be able to impact people powerfully, especially parents who are in the same situation in which I found myself. I want it to become part of the societal conversation around the sovereign choice to use entheogens for personal, spiritual transformation and connection, and around the freedom to consciously raise our children with the possibility of direct spiritual experience superseding religion, convention, dogma, and even faith, should they choose that path.

I also feel that my original timeline (of this project being complete by the end of this year) has become unrealistic, and at the risk of losing momentum, feel the need to take a step back in this process and regroup. As a result of these reflections, I have decided to take a short hiatus from writing this weekly blog, and focus instead on the essential questions I want the book to answer. I will also be continuing my research in all areas and intend to begin interviewing parents soon. Please look for another update in about four weeks. I hope to have some greater clarity and more importantly, better writings to share with you all!

Blessings to you and happy harvest season!
