EWP Women Researchers on Entheogens: Community, Ceremony, and Healing

This lively discussion will focus on the entheogenic research being carried out by three women members of the East-West Psychology community. After the researchers’ engaging presentations, faculty member Dr. Janis Phelps will moderate the discussion between the researchers and the audience.


Amata Albero holds a BA in Cultural Anthropology and an MA in East-West Psychology. Her current doctoral research in East-West Psychology bridges her interest in intergenerational trauma and her spiritual path on ‘the way of peyote.’ Amata will present her work Toward a Medicine for Intergenerational Trauma: An Inquiry on Native American Church Peyote Ceremonies and Ancestral Healing. The main purpose of this study is to shed light on the therapeutic benefits of Peyotism as a spiritual way of ancestral healing.

Jean Ann Britt is an Assistant Professor of Nursing at CSU-Stanislaus in Turlock, California, and is an energy healer and indigenous ceremonial singer. She has worked extensively with the Ogallah Lakota Sioux, Ute, Pueblo, Amayra and Shipibo tribes for the past twenty years. Jean will present The Song is Love, a heuristic pilot study exploring a shaman's experience of singing icaros during ayahuasca ceremonies. This work investigates the speaker’s perceptions and experience at the intersection of medicine plants, singing, and healing.

Yalila Espinoza is a spiritual health practitioner and intimacy coach who integrates art, music, dreamwork, ancestral ritual, and sacred plant teachings. She holds a PhD in East-West Psychology and has trained in Spiritual Counseling, and offers individual counseling, spiritual-erotic awakening groups, and a 9-month sexual initiation program. Yalila will present her paper Sexual Healing with Amazon Plant Teachers: A Heuristic Inquiry of Spiritual-Erotic Awakening (Sexual and Relationship Therapy Journal, January 2014).
