Larry Norris is the founder and executive director of ERIE (Entheogenic Research, Integration, and Education), a group dedicated to the development of entheogenic research and integration models. ERIE brings diverse entheogenic speakers, practitioners, and researchers to share their wisdom with the San Francisco/Bay Area community. As an adjunct faculty at CIIS, Larry taught a course called Entheogenic Education: Contemporary Perspectives on Ancient Plant Wisdom in order to discuss the concept of entheogens as educational teachers and cognitive tools. A dedicated activist and a proponent of cognitive liberty, Larry's efforts hope to change the Western legal status of these sacred plants, brews, and compounds, and to emphasize the importance of entheogenic integration.
