Moudou Baqui

Moudou Baqui (aka, Justin Petty, M. Ed.) is an activist, Certified Level II Reiki healer, martial artist, urban shaman, behavioural specialist and educator. His journey into the esoteric started with his father, former Grand Master of a local chapter of an international mystical order, following in the footsteps of his grandfather, who began his studies in the early 1900s. At his father’s urging, he continued his studies of ancient knowledge without the formality of known institutions. He has further advanced his studies of shamanism, metaphysics and ethnogenics via travel on several continents and tutelage under different intellectual traditions. Among his teachers, he credits Ahati Kilindi Iyi as a key figure in his knowledge of ethnobotany and the martial sciences.

What Is The Psychedelic Café?

The Psychedelic Café is a structured conversational space exploring various, deep questions about the nature of mind, life, and reality.
Each cafe features a curated selection of 4-5 people to explore a question according to a specific structure (outlined below), based on the method of Dharma Talking, a conversational technology from Jean Robertson, forged in The Liminal Space Agency Meta-Monstatary, and based on “The World Cafe”.
Why this style?

The cafe structure creates a quality and dynamic of conversation, idea sharing, and mutual learning that is incredibly ripe and valuable for not only the people involved but the listening audience who will be able to listen to it afterward. In the current times of uncertainty, complexity, and change, I believe the psychedelic cafe will offer content not otherwise available in a time where it is deeply needed.



No amount is too small; anything is something.
