About Us

The Temple of Zion Life is a spiritual healing center focused on providing the B.I.P.O.C, marginalized, and underserved community with service, education, spiritual fellowship, healing practices, guidance, and sacred ceremonies. With honor and respect, The Temple of Zion use psilocybin mushrooms as our anointed and holy sacrament and offering. Thus, sacred ceremonies are reserved for Zion Life members only.

Zion Life has been in operation since 2019, founded by Stephanie Barnwell a native indigenous Gullah Geechee people from the Sea Islands of the Lowcountry along the now protected Gullah Geechee Corridor. Since 2019 has maintained operations with the blessing from the “Most High” in beautiful Jamaica which has been a place of refuge, change, transformation, and spiritual growth. In 2023, the universe aligned and brought forth Co-Founder, Jeremiah Blackwell, a humble spiritual leader, star seed, and healer to advance the healing work at Zion under the direction of “The All”.

The Temple of Zion Life was birthed to be vessel and conduit for spiritual growth, development, and ascension to provide a place of refuge to the collective to heal our MIND, BODY, & SOUL! We believe it is our birth right as humans, indigenous or not to use our free will and freedom to believe, practice, honor and protect the sacred practice(s) of Eastern, Kemetic, and Mother-Earth based spiritual traditions. These ancient, sacred, spiritual traditions, beliefs, ceremonies and practices are grounded and rooted in African, South American, Native Indian American, and Afro-Carribean cultural, religious, and spiritual traditions using sacred indigenous natural medicines such as psilocybin, iboga, ayahuasca.

As, the “Cradle of Humankind” since the beginning of time Mother Africa and the Diaspora has given every nation the ORIGINAL spiritual, religious, scientific, and therapeutic knowledge of healing the mind, body, and soul with plant & animal medicine. Our ancestors used plant(bush) medicine and psychedelics for thousands of years long before they arrived in the West (North America) as captives with their sacred knowledge and best practices. Thus, according to spiritual law what is of the Earth is our holy sacrament, and we retain the rights as citizens of this nation to use plant medicines as conduit for the benefit of our spiritual & personal growth, physical health, personal evolution, and community healing.
