Party with A Plan in Philly

Have you heard about The Philadelphia Experiment? No, not that twisted bit of occult paranoia involving extraterrestrials, space-time teleportation, and the US Navy. This Philadelphia Experiment is an arts collective that has embraced the community and philosophy of Burning Man, and has launched an inspired new scene in the City of Brotherly Love.

The Path of Pain: Spiritual BDSM

Kink. Sadomasochism. Bondage. Dominance and submission. In mainstream society, these things are often associated with a kind of wink-wink nudge-nudge secret sexuality, uncharted territory that surely lies just beyond the fuzzy pink handcuffs and nurses'-uniform lingerie. Within the world of spiritual BDSM practitioners, however, these activities are far from a novelty.

Transforming Repression of The Divine Feminine

Imagine what the world would look like if there were millions of women who were anchors of ecstatic bliss energy. Imagine millions of women eschewing convention and walking their path towards their authentic nature, letting go the norms of social conformity in favor of following their heart bliss. Imagine if the world was filled with juicy mamas who love to be loved, and love to get loved on. We would live in a world where the top priority is to take care of each other, because taking care of each other is taking care of the whole.

Moses 2.0

Time for An Upgrade

Moses 1.0 – best known as the "5 Books of Moses" – are a set of instructions that are followed by the machine we call society. These instructions are meant to cause that machine to exhibit a set of desirable behaviors and functions. But we know that usage is dropping off. What will make the product more appealing to today’s sophisticated user base?

Science Of Soul

[Tranceformers: Shamans of the 21st Century] •After-Death Communication (ADC) is the official term now given to what happened to me spontaneously in June 1988 where I was contacted by a “deceased” federal government physicist colleague, George Viguet (pronounced vee-gay). My friend had “died” prematurely at age 40 from a sudden cardiac arrest seven months previously in Huntsville, Alabama, but appeared suddenly “out-of-the-blue” one morning and that invoked a state of trance in me. I slipped into a very unique consciousness that was full-of-information about life and death in fact.

The Magic of Vortex Healing

"It’s very rare to meet someone who knows about VortexHealing,” Simon tells me as I lay on the massage table in the living room of his six-floor West Village walkup. “There are only nineteen ‘Merlins’ (Vortex teachers) in the world, but you’ll see, in ten years it will be as popular as Reiki.”

Kehinde Wiley’s New World Portraiture

When I think of Kehinde Wiley's paintings, a couple of affiliated effects come to mind. In his work we look at history juxtaposed with a really unstable relationship to realism. But I don't want to start an essay with quotations from history – after all, that's what Kehinde Wiley's paintings are already doing. The essential issue at hand is to give some context to portraiture, hip hop visuality, sampling, collage, and quotation. I want to unpack some of the issues that Wiley engages in his work.

Rothenberg vs. The Scientists: Round 1

[Terra Nova] • I’m in the middle of writing a book on making music with whales, a project which has taken me to Russia, Canada, and Hawaii, in search of giant sea creatures who want to jam. Sometimes they actually do. But some scientists I run across are more difficult than the whales themselves.
