A girl named, Elyse and a boy named Angelo. I wanted to be a present mother and flexible for my kids but still run and follow my dreams and continue my career. Afterglow Marketing was shortly born thereafter. I was able to offer my experience and network to every brand and event. Every day is different, no two days are alike and the contrast keeps me engaged and thirsty for more. Other times I struggle with too much work.
The great afterglow
You learn to ride the waves and after awhile people get to know you and your work and continue to come back for more. I am constantly working. Tell us about Afterglow Marketing — what should we know? Afterglow Marketing is a collective of strategists, producers, do-ers, storytellers, creative scientists… that come together to tell brand stories in experiential ways.
We give a life and soul to brands and events, allowing consumers to touch, feel and experience them.

Every brand has a story to tell, we are the magic behind the story and the storytelling. We focus on branding, creative concepts, event consulting and execution. But what we really are known for is for our experiential storytelling and our flawless execution. Every agency brings something to the industry.
At Afterglow, aside from the obvious, talented and experienced producers… we are a group of confident, competent and caring individuals; we exhibit leadership and standards of excellence. We work hard but we play hard too. We are kind, compassionate and brilliant. We love what we do and it shows in our work! Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success? Organization, organization, organization.
If you are organized and on top of things, nothing should throw you off your game on the big day. Thanks; yes, that's what I was emphasizing - that it's a manifestation of a positive, integrated relationship. Just having sex doesn't automatically produce a lasting relationship any more than a good relationship automatically makes it sexual. If one part is good, it can increase the chances for the other, but it's not guaranteed at all. We've all heard of people who continue to have great sex with their ex's, even while they can't stand each other in many other ways. And then at the other end of the spectrum there are lots of sexless marriages where the relationship, aside from sex, is very good.

Friend me on Faceook. Do you worry about taking too much , not measuring correctly , or losing control of your experience? Enroll in our online microdosing course to have a safe , effective , and valuable microdosing experience. San Pedro contains highly variable concentrations of mescaline 0. The cactus also contains hordenine, anhalonidine, anhalonine, trichocerine, tyramine, and several substituted phenethylamines besides mescaline.
Hordenine, for example, is an antibiotic, and anhalonidine has a mildly sedative effect. It is structurally similar to LSD and often used as a benchmark hallucinogen when comparing psychedelics.

Like nearly all hallucinogens, the psychedelic effects of mescaline are likely due to its action on serotonin 2A receptors. Mescaline also has an affinity for the dopamine receptors,  either as a selective reuptake inhibitor or as a dopamine receptor agonist. That said, a lethal dose has never been identified—probably because it would be too high to happen accidentally. A study into the ceremonial use of peyote among Native American populations found there to be no detrimental long-term effects.
However, mescaline appears to present little risk of flashbacks or hallucinogen persisting perception disorder HPPD. San Pedro may not be safe in combination with MAOIs natural or synthetic , including the antidepressants phenelzine Nardil and tranylcypromine Parnate. Non-MAOI e. SSRI antidepressants may diminish the psychoactive effects, but they do not appear to be physically dangerous in combination with San Pedro.
See FAQ for more on potential drug interactions. Just 50g dried cactus material might contain as little as mg mescaline a threshold dose or as much as mg mescaline a potential overdose. You should start to notice effects within minutes of taking San Pedro, but it may take 3 hours to peak. Residual stimulation could make it difficult to sleep after the primary effects wear off. The onset is generally accompanied by drowsiness or dizziness, often with a sense of tingling or electricity in the veins.
Common visual effects include whirlpools of colored light, flashes in the peripheral vision, kaleidoscopic patterns, and white, ghostlike outlines around people. Accompanying this may be clear and connected thought, self-realization, empathy, and euphoria. Take care to remove hazards, including sharp objects and things you might trip over, before taking San Pedro. A responsible sitter is also a good idea, at least for first timers. You may want to fast for 12 hours before using San Pedro, or at least take it on an empty stomach to minimize nausea and maximize absorption although some claim digestion potentiates effects .
You may also want to spend a few hours meditating or reflecting on what you hope to learn or heal through the experience. Many like to experience San Pedro outdoors, in nature. Adam Gottlieb made this claim in Peyote and Other Psychoactive Cacti , but without any supporting evidence.

For clarity, most uses of the term refer to T. As for which is the strongest, it appears to be T. Analyses of T. Analyses of the mescaline-rich outer flesh alone have found the difference to be even greater: 0. It should be noted, however, that mescaline content varies so much in both T. In other words, some Peruvian torch cuttings may well have ten times the mescaline content of some San Pedro cuttings—just not as a general rule. San Pedro cleansing ceremonies often last all night and may be repeated over several days. These are usually sorted into three zones or fields campos according to their energy alignment—positive life-giving , negative death-taking , or neutral.
This might involve the invocation of spirits from both Andean and Christian cosmology and the passing of a sword or staff over the patient in the form of a cross. Whatever takes place in the ceremony, it is to the plant, as opposed to the healer or shaman, that cures are generally attributed. There are some bold claims made about the curative powers of San Pedro, but unfortunately the evidence is anecdotal.
One woman, a cancer patient, is said to have entrusted her fate to the plant and, during the ritual, learned why she had cancer and that she had a choice not to have it anymore.
Recoveries from mood disorders are easier to believe. Interestingly, some of the most significant transformations or breakthroughs came about months after the experience itself, even if the initial psychedelic therapy session seemed to be a failure.
Benefits included a greater sense of wellbeing, inner strength, and vitality. Mescaline, and by extension San Pedro, may also be useful for reliving or recalling repressed memories in a psychotherapeutic context, overcoming addiction,     and dealing with chronic pain.
