Decriminalize Nature Oakland W/ Larry Norris Founder of ERIE ( Entheogenic Research Integration & Education) and Carlos Plazola CEO of Buildzig

Decriminalize Nature Oakland is an educational campaign to inform Oakland residents about the value of entheogenic plants and fungi and the intention to propose a resolution to decriminalize our relationship to nature.

Larry Norris, MA, Ph.D. Candidate is the co-founder and executive director of ERIE (Entheogenic Research, Integration, and Education) 501(c)(3), a group dedicated to the development of entheogenic research and integration models. Beginning his studies in cognitive science as an undergrad at the University of Michigan, he is now a Ph.D. candidate in the East-West Psychology department at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) in San Francisco. His dissertation will review archived ayahuasca experiences to identify transformational archetypes that induce insights hidden within the experiences. As adjunct faculty at CIIS, Larry taught a graduate course called Entheogenic Education: Contemporary Perspectives on Ancient Plant Wisdom in order to discuss the concept of entheogens as educational teachers and cognitive tools. He has also taught Paradigms of Consciousness at John F. Kennedy University. A dedicated activist and proponent of cognitive liberty, Larry’s efforts are a contribution to not only change the Western legal status of these powerful plants, fungus, and compounds but also to emphasize the potential sacred nature of entheogens given the right set and setting.

Carlos Plazola:

Education: Carlos received his BS degree in biology and Anthropology from UCLA reaffirming his love of this planet and the human experience. In 1993 for 3 months he lived among the Achuar tribe in Ecuador where he learned of their ways and impact of western society on their traditions, partook in Ayahuasca ceremony with Curandero. From 1993 to 1995 Carlo studied political ecology at Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. The intention was to understand how human positively and negatively impacts the use of Earth’s resources from a political, social, and economic perspective. He then took courses at the School of Management as well. From 1994 to 1998, Carlos worked at non-profits doing community organizing to learn the tool of mobilizing people. From 1998 to 2006 he worked at the congressional office and at local city council office to learn how to do political organizing, and then from 2006 to 2012, he started real estate development consulting to learn private sector success and to learn how to create the built environment, and how to do so with sustainably. From 2012 to now, Carlos has built over 30 projects, with the latest ones focusing on sustainability and social good (historic preservation). His role in Decriminalize Nature Oakland is about bringing all this together for the benefit of humanity and the planet as co-evolvers in the universe.
