Bloodletting with Peter Gorman

In the words of Dennis McKenna, Peter
Gorman has "been way, way beyond the chrysanthemum on many a dark jungle
night." Gorman's long awaited book Ayahuasca in My Blood: 25 Years of
Medicine Dreaming tells the story of his long, deep relationship with
ayahuasca. This book review, and an interview with the author, sets up camp to
explore the edges of an astonishing journey.

A Conversation with Andrew Harvey

If we can create the mystical crucible strong enough to
stand the horror of facing our collective and individual shadows, then the depth of our depravity and enslavement might provide, through the mystery
of grace, a glimpse of the divine light that is unbearably intense at this moment, and is trying to make us wake up and claim responsibility
for our transformation.

The Sky Starts an Inch off the Ground

Transformation is messy: your old
world doesn't work anymore, it falls apart. All
transformational processes have some things in common, and as these
collective crises converge upon us they make "normal" unlivable. So whether we
intend to or not we're pushed to a different way of being. 

Psychiatry Almost Drove Me Crazy

In its initial stage, a
spiritual awakening can look like a nervous breakdown. My experience was so off psychiatry's
map that it wasn't even remotely recognized. I was immediately labeled
as sick.

"Edupunks" are the radicals
who want to liberate scholarship and learning from the constraints of

It is easy to fall into an un-embodied state; it’s easy to lose oneself and to not be aware that oneself has become un-embodied, and not notice until the signs are screaming at you in every direction – especially in this culture. In fact, our culture supports and encourages its citizens to be un-embodied. Thus, becoming Embodied is a revolutionary act of freedom, in this culture of enslavement to socially dysfunctional norms.

The Sacred Geometry of a Consciousness Movement

Here’s the story of how I gave up on electoral politics, started seeing auras, and met up with Daniel Pinchbeck to help found Reality Sandwich and Evolver.net. This gives a behind the scenes view of why we started the Spores and discusses the large-scale healing potential of a consciousness movement.

Savage Moderns: Avatar-Style Ecocide in the Real World

The most lucrative movie of all time depicts the genocidal plight of an indigenous race that gets in the way of a mining operation. But we don't have to look to sci-fi for examples of this — up to 300,000 West Papua natives have been killed to put gold in the chips of the computer you're looking at now.

The Process is the Product

What might happen if a rock band, instead of just seeing fans as an income flow and an ego booster, focused that admiration and energy toward a cultural- and lifestyle-directing network?  What would happen if we created a "paramilitary occult organization" that shared demystified magickal techniques?
