Some of our customers say that they chew CARDAMOM SEED when they they go to a party where they want to meet a new lover. Others tell us that they mix CARDAMOM SEEDS with other so-called Love-Drawing Herbs, such as Rose Buds, Cubeb Berries, Damiana Leaves, Juniper Berries, Catnip Leaves, Red Clover Flowers, Rose Petals, or Lavender Flowers and carry this in a Red Conjure Bag so that when they meet someone new whom they desire, the man or woman they want can be easily led into lust.

And at the centre of that impulse is the shaman: stoned, intoxicated on plants, speaking with the spirit helpers, dancing in the moonlight, and vivifying and invoking a world of conscious, living mystery. That’s what the world is. The world is not an unsolved problem for scientists or sociologists. The world is a living mystery: our birth, our death, our being in the moment – these are mysteries. They are doorways opening on to unimaginable vistas of self-exploration, empowerment and hope for the human enterprise. And our culture has killed that, taken it away from us, made us consumers of shoddy products and shoddier ideals. We have to get away from that; and the way to get away from it is by a return to the authentic experience of the body – and that means sexually empowering ourselves, and it means getting loaded, exploring the mind as a tool for personal and social transformation.
