Dear Church Member,

Entheos: The Journal of Psychedelic Spirituality is conducting a survey of church members that partake of the sacrament peyote. We are concerned with the conservation of this sacred plant and believe that peyote is essential to the health and spiritual well being of many thousands of church members.
This is an issue we intend to address in a future issue of our journal. We invite your personal opinion or the consensus of your church organization. Please feel free to distribute photocopies of this survey to other members of your church or other peyote churches.
