The Institute of Ecotechnics is proud to sponsor tax-deductible donations for the McKenna Academy of Natural Philosophy.
Modern science grew out of Natural Philosophy, a fusion of philosophy and science that considers mind and consciousness as inseparable aspects of nature. Before modern science became fragmented into specialized disciplines and restricted to quantitative study, Natural Philosophy acknowledged the limitations of reductionism and embraced complementary ways of understanding derived from intuition, insight, and inspiration. The human mind perceives the world through lenses that no other instrument can simulate. The best tools to polish and clarify those lenses, to inspire and educate mankind in this “new” emergent paradigm, are the “Plant Teachers”—the sacred psychedelic medicines.
