Founded in Santa Cruz, California in 2022, Redwood Naturals follows the belief system that entheogenic plant medicine holds the spiritual key when integrated into one's religious practices. We are a church whose members believe in the spiritual power of using entheogens to further their religious journeys. By allowing oneself to become one with the Spirit of Nature/the Universe through the use of entheogenic plants not only is one's mind opened but their heart is as well. Entheogenic mushrooms have been incorporated into religious ceremonies for at least 6,000 years. There are some that theorize entheogenic mushrooms were the cause of prehistoric proto-human's minds tripling in size in just 2 million years and were the catalyst of human consciousness(1).

We offer thoughtful access to entheogenic mushrooms for religious purposes to members of our church. Our hope is that our members are able to both spiritually open their minds and their hearts to the powerful messages received during an entheogenic ceremony. Ceremonies can be performed both in church settings as well as in individual settings depending on one's spiritual beliefs.
We are two siblings whose lives have both been changed for the better through the spiritual use of entheogenic mushrooms. Entheogenic mushrooms have allowed us to know ourselves deeper spiritually and to grow our connection with the greater spirit and energy that envelopes everything. By consuming entheogens we found we had greater access to the energy flow of the universe. We hope to create an accessible community in which our fellow humans are supported in their spiritual journey through the use of entheogens.
