The Teafaerie writes stories, poems, movies, plays and essays, makes videos, organizes flash mobs, and is one of the founders of Prometheatrics, a big beautiful Esplanade camp at Burning Man. At various times she has been a writer, nanny, actress, flow arts teacher, childbirth doula, homeless person, aid worker, live-action storyteller, toy inventor, app designer, street performer, and party promoter.
She also sometimes talks about herself in the third person.
I write a regular column for Erowid called “Teatime – Psychedelic Musings From the Center of the Universe.”
I consider myself to be a sort of an independent field researcher. I’ve been hard at it in a nearly obsessional fashion since the early 90’s. I’ve tripped way more times than I can count. And I’ve sat in as ground control/witness/psychedelic voyeur for a very large number of expeditions over the years. (200 is a comfortably low estimate for both of the above.) I’ve attended a wide range of festivals, raves, concerts, parties, conferences, and ceremonies. I’ve spent over a year at the Rainbow Gathering if you add it all up. And almost 8 months on the Playa. I often work sanctuary/green dot/teahouse/chill tent/wherever lost trippers get brought at these things, either officially or (more often) as a roving volunteer who thinks that she’s got some sort of a sacred mission. I’ve been to the Amazon a few times. Plus I’ve literally read thousands of trip reports. And probably close to a hundred books on the topic. And I’m constantly poking around for articles on the Internet.
And I STILL feel like I don’t have any answers.
But I think that I’m finally starting to ask some of the right questions. <3
