Utne Reader editor Christian Williams discusses the role of women in the psychedelic renaissance with Zoe Helene, an environmental activist and wildlife advocate who has started a women's advocacy group in the psychedelic community called Cosmic Sister. This is the third episode of the Utne Reader Abstract Notions podcast.

Since Helene—an artist, environmental activist and wildlife, advocate—began participating in transformational ayahuasca ceremonies in the Amazon with her husband, ethnobotanist Chris Kilham, she’s found that la medicina moves her life forward in ways that matter. Ayahuasca has reconnected her with her deepest inner wisdom and helped her step up to the plate. “This is not recreational—it is hard if fascinating work with a big payoff,” Helene says.
