Since very young Luna has had a fascination with different cultures and their relation to their environment. One of the aspects that has always fascinated her is how the use of different substances affect the development of cultures and their relationship with their environment. She loves researching different psychoactive substances, the myths associated with them and the impact those have in the formation of certain cultural behaviours. She is interested in how psychoactive substances can help unlock or broaden the human sensorium and how this relates to holistic, all encompassing, worldviews and ways of being.
But the relationship between psychoactives and humans is not her single interest. She also loves exploring different life systems and relationships in general. She has a desire to understand the systems she is part of and to form deeper connections with all the elements that are part of it. It is because of this that she has started to learn more about permaculture and ecology. She developed a passion for all other life elements, including medicinal plants, fungi and their relationship with other life beings and their environment. She is mesmerised by the intimate, caring and nurturing relationship between these medicinal beings, humans and other lives and is determined to learn and experiment as much as possible with them.
Her education and passion
Luna has a degree in Science, with focus on neuroscience, molecular biology and programming, from the Maastricht University. She has also studied theatre and currently works on projects combining arts and sciences. She is passionate about psychedelic research and has been following the field for about 5 years. Luna believes that a world in which all life beings live in harmony is still possible and she thinks that the first step in that direction is to share knowledge about the different human-non-human relationships and the thousands of different cultures that already exist out there, each bringing different understandings of what is human, what is nature and what is life.
One of Luna’s favourite Sirius products is the Salvia Divinorum Extract. It was with Salvia Divinorum that Luna had her first groundbreaking psychedelic trip. She believes Salvia Divinorum to be a sacred plant with deep cultural and historical implications for the Mazatec people.
