Avian Flu: The Next Great Pandemic Threat

Since 2003, an avian influenza virus called H5N1 has been killing large
numbers of poultry – and occasionally people. But while public concern over bird flu has faded in recent years, the risk to humans has increased. A look at the history of pandemic flu can help us understand why the H5N1 virus remains a serious threat to mankind.

During my years traipsing around the Amazon, I had the opportunity to study with shamans and healers. Some were masters who worked with the ayahuasca vine.

Deep in the Peruvian jungle, American-born shaman Hamilton Souther leads Westerners through traditional Ayahuasca ceremonies at his Blue Morpho lodge. "Ayahuasca is a divine gift to the world, and it is a gift to be able to share it with others."

The Roots of Our Gnostalgia

The Gnostics were sophisticated seers who belonged to a millennial pagan tradition that was brutally suppressed at the rise of Christianity.

Gaia vs. The Off-Planet Father

If there is any real prospect of recovering and reviving Gnosis today, it will require looking closely at problems endemic to the Piscean Age, which the telestai were unable to solve, or denied the opportunity to solve.
