Moshe Jacobson

Greetings! My name is Moshe Jacobson, and I’m one of AEP's founding members. I am a professional practitioner along with my partner Marisa in Smyrna, Georgia (outside Atlanta). We facilitate sacred medicine ceremonies for individuals, couples, and groups, as well as microdosing.

Psychedelics have changed my life. I had my first psychedelic experience in 2012, started Atlanta’s psychedelic community (PsyAtlanta) in 2015, and began working professionally with sacraments in 2018 as part of a three year mentorship. In August of 2019 I went full time with my work, and now (2023) I am working with Marisa to build a faith based organization called Entheo Community to protect and support our practice.

I also love to facilitate ceremonies in national parks followed by multi-day integration hikes, as well as medicine ceremony retreats on cruise ships! You can view more about my work at my website where you are welcome to book a free call with me anytime. Thanks for reading!

Roger Lockshier

Hello everyone! My name is Roger Lockshier, and I currently live in coastal North Carolina with my wife Allison and our four kids.

I am a shamanic practitioner, medicine carrier and ceremonialist with 30 years of experience devoted to nature centric spirituality as well as a variety of other healing and mystical practices of both western and eastern traditions.

After working for over a decade in “traditional” healthcare as both a nurse and as a hyperbaric technologist, I surrendered to the call of Spirit to devote my life in service of assisting others to awaken to their deepest healing and spiritual potentials. As co-founder and core facilitator of Spirit of Earth Church, I am humbly inspired by those who have the courage to be better humans, those who intentionally seek deep, transformative healing and who choose to foster a healthier relationship with themselves and, in turn, with all other sentient beings and the Divine.

Peace, Gratitude & Radical Transformations!
