I do. What do you want to know?

I've been dropping jewels all over this board, but remember rocks can't help you unless you heat them up.

No.

Peyote is different religion/spiritual practice. However, some people that go to Peyote ceremonies often also practice spirituality in the sweat lodge separately.

There are two versions:

One that incorporates the bible and Christianity.

One that is more traditional.

The peyote ceremony originated somewhere in the South, South West. There are some people here that practice that religion, I don't.

My current understanding of the peyote ceremony is when people use it they can see the life force of all nature and when abused-

People can loose their minds.

I go at the very least once a month. Sometimes 3 times in a week. I help my dad run one at the High School sometimes.

But yeah I get what your saying.
