What is the Church of the Tree of Life.

(San Francisco, CA): The Church of the Tree of Life, 1988. First edition. Single sheet measuring 22cm by 27.5cm folded to 22cm by 9.5cm. Scarce prospectus for membership of the church, spiritually libertarian, the church maintained that psychoactive substances were God’s gifts to humanity, and that consenting adults had the right to use them in whatever manner they desired, so long as their actions didn’t impinge on the rights of others. The Church didn’t officially recognize LSD, cannabis or other Schedule One drugs as sacraments, but promulgated the use of legal alternatives like morning glory seeds, kava, calamus root, damiana, and other non-proscribed substances as tools for consciousness expansion. Membership was open to anyone who agreed with these general principles; an SASE sent to Church headquarters on Columbus Avenue in San Francisco would return with a membership card and the latest issue of Bark Leaf, the Church newsletter. A very good copy, staple holes where sealed for mailed. Stamped and addressed.
