About The Teacher
Corey has been a seeker of truth from the time of his early teens. Raised by a devout Rastafarian father and a Bon Buddhist mother of Jamaican and Chinese descent, it wasn’t long before Corey began some real inquiry into the nature of self and reality. Years of working with the sacrament of Cannabis through meditation eventually led to psilocybin (mushrooms) and other sacred plant medicines in ceremonial use.
Eventually Corey would begin sharing these earth sacraments with close friends and family, answering his innate call to be of service and be a carrier of some of these sacred plant medicines.
As a longtime student of yoga and meditation, Corey spent his 20’s traveling the world and studying different modalities, from the teachings of Rastafari in Jamaica, to the Buddha of Northeast India, to the Shipibo of the Amazon - all to come to one conclusion. That it is all the same. Different paths to the same overstanding. That all is one - behaving as an infinitude of facets and personalities. That it is all but one ocean, with infinite waves and drops, yet none are ever separate from the greater whole. Or as we say in the Vedantic tradition - Aham Brahmasmi. I am the universe. Infinite by Nature. I am Brahman.
Corey’s background in Yoga and Entheogens, paired with his syncretic knowledge from varying schools of thought and esoterics, has brought to him to his current Dharma (role in the evolution of Universal Consciousness). Which is functioning as a teacher of Vedic Meditation, coupled with exploration of consciousness through meditation and entheogens/plant medicines. He also draws heavily on the eight limbs (ashtanga) of Yoga (as outlined by the great Indian sage Patanjali) as great tools for not only the integration process, but our lives, with a focus on the last 3 limbs (Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi) - collectively known as Samyama.
Corey works primarily with the secretion of the Bufo Alvarius Toad species (Incilius Alvarius/Sonoran Desert Toad), of which the active molecule is 5-MeO-DMT, also known as the God Molecule. It is considered to be the most powerful of all entheogens on the planet, hence the given name the God Molecule, which is also found in all human beings. It is humanity’s unparalled tool for experiencing the non-dual state referred to as Samadhi, outlined in the great Yoga Sutras of Patanjali from 2500 years ago.
Corey now leads retreats and workshops around the world, focusing on the connection between plant medicines/entheogens and Yoga/the breath, and the non-dual states that can be achieved through all of these practices. Also bringing in the healing properties of sound frequency through sonic therapy and vibration.
