Stuart Verity, while as an Art student in Leeds, started his meditative/ entheogenic journey in the autumn of 1988 after foraging for liberty caps in Golden Acre Park. Then after reading Robert Anton Wilson's many books that suggest balancing psychedelics/entheogens with disciplined meditation and movement practice, Stuart initially took up Vipasana meditation and Qi Gong. Then since 1998 till present has been a member and drinking Ayahuasca with the Santo Daime and training/ teaching Taichi and continuing meditation practice in Buddhist Rime Dzogchen tradition. On many occasions, over the past 20 years, Stuart has provided Taichi, Qigong and meditation practice for Santo Daime camps and retreats with Entheogenic integration in mind and enjoys encouraging ongoing dedicated, disciplined meditation and movement practices in the entheogenic community to help investigate and integrate the entheogenic orientated Satori realm.
