Permaculture Eco-Warriors Establish The Moshram Part 2 TPP281

Play

In this episode I’m joined by MC Mycopath for a two part series on the past, present, and future of his personal permaculture journey and the establishment of The Moshram

My Non Verbatim Show Notes

MM:

10 years doing landscape consultations, small scale urban repurposing of people’s front and back yards, more hip with local, everything that’s taking place, microbio in soil, plants that co-mingle,

also consulting folks with health

certifications achieved through multiple biochemists

learned that the more fresh foods that we consume, the healthier our cells are

the body that takes us around here

with that, understanding and passion for that, I really wanted to be able to provide highest quality product of food for myself and others, coupled with education

spin farming, brother and I spin farming, didn’t necessarily bring in permaculture

added permaculture principle layer to spin farming

densely growing high value crops in small area

regenerate the living systems

help maintain my living system, at a cellular level, also at a financial and social level

been about 5 years, that I’ve been on this site, had multiple sites over the years

site, least likelihood of it being taken from underneath my feet, all apart of journey

seeing successes and failures in past projects

led me to finding this space

it was through a friend, that was aware that I was looking to scale up

spin farming in brothers back yard, with brother

then when on to slightly expanding at space I was at

really like to bring it all to one location and just do this

generally around vegetable crops

annuals predominantly

put in a layer of perennial crops

also longer term species, fruit trees

learned fascinating things about fruit

fruit tree requires least amount of water over long time period

gives back a lot to soil

soil is really just millions or billions of living organisms

eating pooping, dying, whole things perpetuating

through roots and leaves, branches, fruits, they drop all feeding system

year in year out

bring together this whole concept

put it at a term, silvopasture

rows of fruit trees, or some type of tree

aid in creating shade

aid in slowing down wind

not requiring a lot of water, relative to other annual crops

in between rows, would grow annual crops

maybe these annual crops are things just to regenerate soil

rotational crop, in between lettuce, grow vetch, cow pea, to reinvigorate the soil from what was depleted from what was the previous crop you cultivated

what we set out to do here

very densely packed rows of vegetable crops to sell at market and too individuals through CSA type program

longer term species of varying fruit trees

simply move forward upon goals of project, something that’s always an unknown, fortunately and unfortunately, that collaborative team of 3 individuals broke down

mediator, wasn’t sustainable, they didn’t vibe well, both wanting to walk away which they did

I was not very interested in walking away from another project, having it swept out from under me, again ,because these two egos weren’t collaborating

move post differences

differences got in the way

I wasn’t feeling, stepping away from all of the work we had done from contouring the land, to bringing in so much organic matter, infusing bacterium, all sorts of soil microbiology

perennial fruit trees, you have to wait some time, 3-5 years minimum to reap harvest

I didn’t have it in me to just be like you guys aren’t into, either am I, I am into it

don’t just want to do it here, want to perpetuate this stamp, different biomes

so cal region, mediteranean biome, only about 7 med, climates on the planet, tend to be the most lucrative for humans to co-exist with surroundings, temperatures, food crops, wild and domesticated

love to see what it’s like in other bioregions as well, other climatic elements

we’ve got going on what we have here

you came forward saying how interested you were in helping perpetuate this project, it was like the clouds parted

working on this site, we’re on 10s of acres, just working out a little over an acre, just maintenance alone for one person is daunting to say the least

just because we put together a holistic system doesn’t mean there’s no more work

actually perpetual, no end to amount of work, just in pruning things, cultivating

easy to plant seed, easy to harvest, cultivation in between, I don’t know if it’s gonna survive or not, I’ll do everything I can

lot of energy mental, physical, spiritual

one dude, isn’t gonna hold the world on his back man, either are two

TP: makes me think I’m gonna use another term for defining permaculture and call it ecological parenthood

caring for something to maturity

young families go through it, terrible twos, fighting, health similar thing

tree system here, adolescent,

MM: not as easy as dealing with child, can’t teach a tree how to fight off a squirrel, they’re bullies

TP: the timeliness of this, synchronicities will be unveiled later

rick straussman, first actual government sanctioned psychedelic research studies since the 70s, gap of 20 years

spirit molecule, interviewed,

recently, basically saying, people would ask did he take DMT,

he would give a vague answer or plausible deniability

eventually recently came out, admitted, yeah, I was doing it

I’m like fuck yeah, I wanted to hear that for so many years, scientist had the balls to do what he was talking about

ties back together, something he said, meta level life philosophy

you know, back then I had my whole career ahead of me still, a lot to lose, judged, critique, older, less of my life left, that’s much less life to lose

we’re at a point where I don’t want to piss off the wrong people, I don’t want to be a target, wait til we have resilience before we have grand opening at this site

eventually will ripened, eventually forced by demand, people will need it

sweet spot in time, security measures, support we need, capital, be in place for the time we want to open the gates

get to that point when, we did the thing, not much left to lose, tell the story, give real names, not give a fuck

certain things now, I feel like, at least statute of limitations has run out on some things, one metric

that feeling, we’ll get to a point where we don’t have that much to lose

my side of story of having fallen in love with this site, toured project in the past, wishing I could be more connected, occasion to visit

definitely feel like it was one of the most epic works in progress of so cal permaculture

ability to do it right

social permaculture dynamics of human sector, zones of humans, sector of humans, human elements, could have most beautiful property, dynamics surrounding neighbors be your worst enemy, false starts,

time energy, blood, blisters, heart ache, amount of effort that goes into permaculture project, somebody that’s they’re mission, to have that be continually ripped out in front of you

people don’t even see it

persecution of religious sects, we are the lost tribe of permies, that are constantly being haranged by neighbors

adapted us also to travel light in our personal empires

positive side effect of lifestyle of ecological romance

nudge nature to create symphonies of seed and soil

less hindered

student of Tyler Durgen, waking up after car crash with Edward Norton, the world I see, laying out strips of vennisen

hunter gathers, thriving on the carcass of industrial collapse

utopian anarchoprimitivists, intellectual elite, from eugene, green anarchist, wanna be poser,

not everybody was a poser, the heads that were the elitist, very hyper intellectual, authors and writers, wind bags, had all this talk

in eugene the founder of food not lawns, we’d go there talk bs about living primitive, blessing her with presence of our lofty conversations, decades later we don’t have our food forest, we don’t have fruit trees maturing, resentment, burnt bridges

super extra appreciate hard work that’s been done

this site, work you’ve done, huge grace, a pass, I could and should very well be punished for how far I’ve strayed from the path of planting trees, defending them, standing by them, storms, storming off of partners and lovers, mission and duty to make a stand

there’s a lot of times I’ve said this is not the hill I’m gonna die on, and this is the first time I can actually say this is a high that I would die on, for a lot of reasons, biggest gift to me, is to know

who is tantra punk, wacko jerk off wanna be tyler durgen alter ego, that split off from psychedelic ceremonies that got botched, and now this floating soul part of my old wounded self, has created this internet porn star wanna be freak, don’t have much ecological, I have bastard children trees, all over the place, to be able to be like

while you were out there, doing this thing, that could have got you in trouble, some what of an adventure, fool hardy, never would have expected that I could just cheat that time that I walked away from the permaculture path, did this freaky stuff

hey ben, dinners ready, fruit falling from trees, I just get to get back into the zone, almost 10 years since I was in deep coastal mountain broad acre permaculture, doing the trees, doing the systems right, the scale, the soil

waltz into this at a point you’d be beleagured, bromance novel cover if there ever was one

thanks to the designer of designers, tip had lift glass to him

be great to go into the shark tank part of this, now the reinforcements in the form of me and my humble but growing financial capital I can put in to keep things afloat, elbow grease, sweat equity

optimizing dance of mutuality, with responsibilities, rights, tasks, finances, between the two of us

alchemy we’re doing, the renaissance of this project, bring into 2.0 era

trajectory of , drawing from the permies community, paul wheaton, survival podcast, larry santoyo, different instructors we’ve had

business model for the site, the rebel farmers like sepp holzer, austria, kramaterohoff, epic contour narrow ponds support subtropical microclimates, high elevation fruit trees

so abundant, epic, done epic shit, considered to be the ultimate rock star, don’t think any other place on earth, other mature permculture projects, the profitability and scale and grandeur, I don’t know what I would compare to the kramaterhoff on earth

wonders of the world of permaculture tour, walk through it sometime

business model, everything else in agriculture sector, globalized race to the bottom, poison, toxic

convince people to want to buy american, niche for premium products, usually sick people who can afford to take your advice

don’t want to give crutch of supplying, want to teach them to do it themselves, leverage their acreage, their community

the idea of farming to enable other people to not be horticulturalists, shift from that as soon as possible

paradigm, living the dream, market gardeners, the biproduct of creating plenty of best varieties of food we’d like to eat, we’ll have excess, and with that excess we can play god to an extent in the economy because of how much of ecological ninjas we are

rather than try to package it all in plastic, get it in all the stores, scale it to the world

we make a more dense local economy out of it, healing center, learning center, teaching them how to fish, not selling them a fish per se

in my crude nut shell of a pitch, that’s the trajectory we’ve been most in agreement about

if somebody had infinite budget to invest, why should they buy into this as working co-op member, or non-working co-op member, how can people benefit from helping us

MM: few dudely dudes, I’ve met could really have no care to well being of nature around them, small minority of people I’ve spoken with of time on this path, over 20 years

experience with biodiesel co-op, very localized project, I would do education to engineering firms, groups

education at earth day festivals, people contribue, become non-working members of biodiesel co-op because they like what’s going on, think it’s a good direction

if anybody has capital, monetary, social, spiritual, any of the 8 forms of capital, that they are willing to share to perpetuate, the direction of this project

this may sound overzealous, I couldn’t think of a better project, or more dedicated individuals to invest that capital in

it’s one of those put your money where your mouth is

my clients in landscaping and in the health regeneration, many of them, actually buy into what I have to share, because of how I’m living my life

I’m not just using words, I’m hands in the soil, I’m doing everything I can at every corner

from what I know of you, been a crucial part of so many projects, that at one point or another it wasn’t your jive anymore for whatever reason

here we are find ourselves together on a mountain we’re will to die on

and it takes a community always

for anyone that would like to be a part of this community and see it perpetuate

be able to visit the site

local,

to benefit from the harvests of all of this, where else are you gonna put your money, time, energy, love

I’m not sure

it’s like you said man, this is one of the rare sites of southern california, any and all help, helps perpetuate a holistic project, working towards the great good of the local and world community when it comes down to it

held a lot of retreats, get people from all over the world, host in tropics, pretty good centralized area, highly abundance

ripe things to eat, throughout the year

amount of people that congregate, so diverse, so incredible, have a lot to share

at this point we have a site that any and all people interested have the ability to share

before it’s all been other people’s sites, very temporary, the time that gets spent there

long term expanded version of those experiences, and “retreats”

where else are you gonna put your resources, if you want to see great things happen, cause that’s all we’re really into

passionate

tend to only roll with those who are equally passionate about making this place a better place to be

agenda 21,

different concept of human settlement zones, from what we’re working towards here

TP: yes

to say the most and the least, that says it all, what could I add to that

nuts and bolts of this business modeling, goes back to legacy of my parents at some point will read the manifesto my father wrote for member based, for-profit nonprofit, fruit based operation, deep in heart of washington state apple orchard lands, building a massively, dense, intensive educational commercial project, rusticness, design constraint, make all tools, tools to make tools, melting down old cars, human powered, they were one of the first and most highly respected, wasn’t hippie commune, very studious, technical, published technical manual, subscribers to periodical, whether they purchased wares or we students, subscribe to catalog, kind of like micro version of mother earth news

department of making you said, interviewed mom, years ago, maybe now the time, one of those things you never know when it’s appropriate, get people on podcast, get perspectives, state of world, might be our last conversation, could go for anybody, did great interview with mom about 10 years ago, transapocalyptic, utopian for her, fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree

hard dharma, karmic seeds of melt down of family, trauma, wasted years, trouble, lot of years to get on the course that fell apart

a lot of people, children of the hippies

there’s something magical about the fact that here we are kind of at the age our parents were, as a generation, hippie, back to the land 2.0, we had woodstock,the rainbow gathering spawned from that, what are children of hippie’s doing now, actually fulfilling some of those dreams

we have now psychedelic shamanism, and not just acid, the electric kool aid test, these people went back to the land, no shamanic oversight, no elders,

even Geoff Lawton jokes, sad joke, comic tragedy, I wonder how many communes failed because they didn’t understand proper solar orientation, they bought land on north facing slopes, gave themselves an uphill battle on steep slopes facing the shadow of the sun, don’t even know why they melted down

permaculture,

we can learn from a lot of those mistakes, well positioned to demonstrate, and proudly display the next generation of the back to the land movement again at a time my mother talked about in the podcast

people went back to the land at the peak of the OPEC oil crisis in early 1970s

it wasn’t 1969 and summer of love, melt down of haight ashbury into tweaker rape culture madness,

they didn’t go directly from peak of 60s to back to the land, survivalist, apocalyptic thing, cities going to evaporate and collapse, economy gonna collapse, have to head to hills and start building a future

but brought in patriarchy, monoculture, only little bits of eastern mysticism

wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for that

now, okay, this is for me the most pure and karmically cleansed and most righteous set of circumstances to do your thing

are you really these eco artisans the whole world should pay attention to, or destined to fail

may not be the last place I ever work on

do world tour of biomes

if you take permaculture design course you want to be like a army ranger, navy seal, eco macguevery, swiss army knife, want to be deployed in every climate

because you know how to do things like harvest snow melt for nursery underground

be a bad ass shit, being a bad ass eco warrior with all this knowledge

do what special forces and green berets, what if all the engineering and money and investing and capital, everything that went into napalm and agent orange, if instead of destroying ecology, all that cultural engineering of warfare, went into actually creating a more resilient opposition through permaculture

tactical permaculture, make it impossible for them to put land mines in territory you want to defend, created thorny trellising, motes, father in military

being a bad ass, be tactical, have a reason to train, not mma, good for them but

wanna have something I love that’s worthy of defending that would keep me in shape just by working it, origins of kung fu and farming

bit of a tirade from me

MM:

I really like how you brought up that the fruit does not fall far from the tree, parents

definitely feel, that’s a thing that goes on in nature, we’re a part of it

we’re carbon copies of these people we call our parents

we emulate them in so many ways, because of the signature for which they gave us, dna

as father was one of most brilliant men I’ve ever met in my life

I would come forward to father with things I’ve learned, he would share how could he thought it was, what it made him think about

prior too, a little apprehensive, most brilliant man, hey check this out, not knowing what kind of feedback, always positive re-enforcement

honoring that we can do as individuals in relationship to our ancestors, that can be very important for mental scape, how we conductor ourselves in our lives

bro, sounds like a spitting image of your dna tree

I would imagine your mother and father had some similar thing for them

fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree

TP: I should shout out thank you to your father, have to name the library after him

lots of bro time to catch up on, and create that space where we can, aya ceremonies, 2 or 3 generations in one ceremony of family members, pretty epic

we’re healing ourselves, healing each other, healing the masculine, and creating a safe and welcoming space for the feminine to be free to be fully expressed

said before no offense, I kinda feel like, well it goes back to waynes world, fully functional babe layer, you can design for the woman in you, and the woman you want on you, save 9th form of capital for another episode

not a monastery, not womanizers either, between monastery and rapey womanizer cult, we’re probably somewhere in the middle

we need our other ethical brothers to step up, we have some healing to do in our tribe of permaculture, takes a lot of those talks about our fathers and what they did and didn’t teach us

so, that conversation is an open forum, its fun to shoot guns and practice your kicks and punches, equally important to break down and let yourself be, pummelled and tenderized by letting go of trauma, letting brother hood energy find those deep wounds and fractures, more energy buried we could be apply to our tree parenthood, soil parenthood, aquaculture parenthood, seed parenthood

MM:

along those lines of the multigenerations of lineage through psychedelic experience, its always bewildered me, with my psychedelic experiences with mushrooms, everytime I sense my grandfather,at first really weird thing, now a presence I’m aware of, hear and feel mutterings, only knew for short period of my life

at this point it’s very interesting, grandfather said, you’re back, maybe I’m back, it’s nice to be with you

thanks for helping to perpetuate my father,

what can I do for us

great thing

TP: it’s like working for a company, at office chair, every once in a while the owner comes in, the day the owner comes in, checking it out, what’s your name, trippy, ancestor worship is a thing

use it or lose it

I feel in this life, pretty damn abandoned by ancestors, been torn asunder to depths of hell such that ancestors have been blocked off by dark armies of hell, demons, but we’re gonna compost the shit out of them, find that the spirit guides were always there, they were just blocked, we didn’t make it easy for them to get back to us

of all the times I’ve felt I don’t know if I belong here, don’t know what I should be doing here, try to destroy ego, never lasts, very few times and place where I feel there is pure righteousness

liberate this land from all the plastic, multigenerational journey

dance with past and future, toxic gick, pure nature, spirits definitely guiding us

applauding efforts, works cut out for you, each one teach one, clean it up, scale it out

microcosm of what has to be done for the whole planet, on every planet

MM: not controlled by forces that think they’re higher

TP: decentralized, mycopathic, path of mycology

talk about martial arts, personal development, brother hood, men’s group experience that we’re working on and developing synthesis of spiritual, self defense, fitness through working the land, grace of being connected to your yin, notion of not just another wet noodle retreat center, traipsing around in loosest clothing, look at me I look like I just jumped out of a Rambo set, and yet I’m spiritual, dancing, smelling flowers, appreciating all the rainbows, but I can also do some ninja rolls, lift some heavy shit, drag some shit around, and do what’s gotta be done, ideal of a shaolin temple, double dragon fruit

playing up this idea, thinking about, if I was a kid, in the peak of my GI Joe fan boyness I would love to be shooting airsoft guns, tactical training with seed shot pellets, was nature boy, played in nature

how much fun families can be having, applying energy going into videos or going into being a boxer, mma fighter

masculine energy, protection, defense, epic garden project, for masculine energy to balance itself and exhaust itself, place for healthy catharsis, healthy relationships, families, we can both speak to

will be legacy to leave behind, a martial, permaculture, ecological, new martial culture as well, no surprise, or coincidence that we both, been blessed by profound journey’s into what other brutish me respect, not just purple breathers, also to some degree bad asses

love to hear you talk about, the spirit of the dragon fruit that animates you and your kung fu gardening techniques

MM:

made reference to that hippie thing, an elder at one of the rainbow gatherings I was sitting with , great acronym, term hippie, happy intelligent person, pursuing infinite excellence

never my thinking when it came to hippies, people that smelled bad, sat around got high and kept sitting around

just talking isn’t accomplishing,

pursuing infinite excellence, taking it to another level, punk rock perspective

you are a hippie, you smell like scum, I’m your worst enemy, a middle class street punk

and I always resonated with that, really nice to get that different perspective of what hippie could be

greater mobility in body, sought out chi gong master, chinese yoga for lack of better terms

not just stretching

entire philosophy, after about a year of training, sifu said, training is great, very yin, balance out with kung fu, more yang,

open to this, cool

always wanted, wanted to have military training for various reasons it wasn’t something that happened, along same line of hippie

kung fu, nearly synonymous, life mastery

mastering whatever life is for me, to me

level of giving back that comes from all of that

began training kung fu

4-5 days a week sometimes 2 sessions a day, my body started to really get in tune with motions, weapons training, when we think back to the shaolin, where kung fu started

these were farmers, weapons were their farm tools, really started to come through as my body got accustomed to movements, started using these implements in the farm, body now knew how to use them in a more appropriate way

ergonomics

rake or hoe, swing it out with arms, shoulders, and back, or put it out there and move hips back and forth, all power in your hips

spirals up through feet, hips, outward

utilizing that technique with farm tools

new relationship with tools and how to work with land and my body, all in same go

weeding, clearing debris, chopping things down, practicing kung fu

martial arts/life mastery

mastering far more of my body, tools, and tools that work with land

symbiosis, something that we can all benefit to apply in our lives, in any way shape or form

not everybody’s gonna go be a farmer

maybe you’re pushing a vacuum

you can cause strain or you can no cause strain to body, which then causes strain or not on the body, perpetuates through spirit

something that I’m still evolving into I feel like but its very empowering

self reliance

being able to provide for yourself, doesn’t just mean growing food, having land, also means self defense

never know where you’re gonna find yourself

bring those things into all of those life practices, another science that fills one of those holes in that permaculture raft we get pushed out into the water

brings it all back around, self feeding, self perpetuating

mentally physically and spiritually

TP:

brings us full circle

pleasant meanderings, through path of this convo, summary of most of our various contexts, working or grubbin on fruit, whatever it is, comings and goings, as we’ve been carving out this niche for ourselves

always reminds me of the movie that got me first enchanted with martial arts, van damme, blood sport

here we are, tactical permaculture moment going back to deepest roots of romance with nature and martial arts

ninjitsu master, frank dux, he was talking to parents, european parents of young frank dux, depicted to be wine farmers, vineyard, meeting of parents

train with japanese ninjitsu master

frank told me you grow vines, boys like vines need training, martial science brings mind, body, spirit together

we’re fulfilling that prophesy

we’re dudes,

point about military, I mentioned this not too long ago, in jest, valid point

hey america, if you would have given me a real war, or real cause to fight for, I would have served on the front lines, it’s been nothing but bullshit, you don’t get to have this body/mind

don’t give traumatic brain injury, lead poisoning, blow my limbs off, make me unable to sustain a relationship, cut my VA benefits for using cannabis

you don’t get any of that shit, not in this lifetime, maybe that could change, who knows what battles will need to be fought

the joke I made, we’re not we’re not less of bad asses that we didn’t get military training, we’re actually more, if we can be, without having the training of those instructors, and we can train our damn selves, read same manuals, same marksmanship, survival training, mindset of discipline, selection

break you down

I was my own drill segerant, life circumstances carved my ass from cookie dough to wood

health, wellness, survival, comes from putting skin in the game

better to have warrior in garden than gardener in war,

debilitating malformed meme of utopian pacifism

idea that we all need to be genderless, a mush of micro trauma egg shell walking, I’m a man, I embrace that, I don’t need impose, I embrace and love and support cherish diversity, space for everyone

phrase, vin armani brought to attention:

seed conversations of what I’d like to call and have been implementing

permaculture training experience for tactically minded, some of the best training, with hardcore lesbian women, guns and ammo, blades, bows and arrows plaster their walls instead of boy band posters, those are my best friends

ongoing thing that, I want to be the guy that the butch warrior lesbians like to play with on a full moon when they feel like, interesting romance, another story

have to cover my ass and say it’s not hyper masculine, toxic masculine militia

who wants to be securing the perimeter, that’s what we need first, can’t have whole tribe or family unless we can defend them

call to action, strong willed, strong minded, disciplined, people who want to be bangin sticks as they say in pekiti tirsia kali training, continual life long conditioning and training, being a warrior , really mean something for good cause

quote: michael hopf, those who remain,

hard times create strong men, strong men create good times, good times create weak men, weak men create hard times,

put that in your pipe and smoke it

enough from me

over and out, roger

thank you again

MM: honor brother, insightful, exciting having this conversation, whoever you are out there listening, hope you were able to glean something from it

summary, I feel like, initially I’d stated how going back to permaculture, can be applied to anything that you do, require taking a permaculture design course with instructor you’d like to learn from, and personality types are thing

I have studied a lot of things in my short time here, does always come back to the principles of permaculture

when I educate others on health, they don’t know it but they’re getting a quick permaculture design course for the body

utilizing all these principles around the landscape we call our bodies

a bunch of cells living together

body, gardening cells, out there gardening soil conditions to provide foods for our cells to utilize

its one of the most valuable trainings that I’ve ever had in my life,

people that also take these course, share similar sentiment

that’s about it

end this with as mc mycopath

end a lot of health lectures with a rap, haven’t done this one in a while, see how it goes

TP: gotta get that out in the drum circle, put some beats on that, hippie drum beats on that

more to come

this conversation is to be continued, next, while we’re still tying up lose ends, give audio tour of integrated systems and logic of design of systems, address

situational report, what we’ve got going what we need help with, if people have time or resources or expertise, what’s been established what’s being established, hearing a bit about what we’re processing, actual road map of what we’re doing, laid out the backstory

of what could be an epic opportunity for ourselves

all sliding scales of wealth, we’re providing

free offerings online, all kinds of content, you’ll be whippin up a podcast, holding the camera for each other to do a lot of the teaching we want to

following up with some a/v content

be comin at cha again soon

big love to you and to all the forces seen and unseen that made it possible to be at this point

Permaculture Eco-Warriors Establish The Moshram Part 1 TPP280

Play

In this episode I’m joined by MC Mycopath for a two part series on the past, present, and future of his personal permaculture journey and the establishment of The Moshram

My Non Verbatim Show Notes

MM:

started out…trouble maker

parents id as ruthless child

stuck me into acting classes, young age

outlet, unrelenting energy

most of childhood, child actor

kindergarten or first grade, hollywood, 7 or 8 years

with that, element of not really going to school, always had to go to auditions, for anything and everything, tv shows, movies, photoshoots,

state law, school for 3 hours, after, in a car driving to hollywood

30-45 percent of time, on-sets throughout elementary school and middle school

lot of really cool work, met great people

tv shows

terminator 2

really great look into the world

moved to san diego, took me out of lime light

distraught, in child actor phase didn’t have to go on audition, just get phone calls, hey you’re hired

once no longer in that realm, I’m a performer, its really in me

astrologically, birth date, title for every day of the year, my day is the grand stage, seemed very fitting, been on stage most of life

when no longer in eye of the camera, some guys that I was in high school with, had a punk band, asked to audition, became the front man of that band, we rocked the so cal punk scene at the right time, right place right time

so cal punk scene blowin up in the 90s, part of that, amazing ride, meet incredible people, see amazing places at a young age

sound recording program

kept furthering it

life would have it, never know certain things are gonna derail you, spin you off/push in another direction

near death experience, NDE

one day, heart stopped, really into meditation

wanted to see how long of breaths I could take, minute in, minute out, strange mental objective, 1.5 in 1.5 out, during that my heart stopped

learned I needed a bit more pressure on the valve to keep that heart pumping, pressure from lungs

that’s its own crazy story, insights gained

done a lot of research on nde,s majority similar story

found myself in consciousness, not in my body, two hands in front of me, a choice, one to come back here, one to stay there, red and blue pill scenario

chose to come back here

flood of information, really expanded consciousness, awareness,

all the sudden looking at body, re entered body, heart began to beat, whoa

looking at friends crying over my body

heart started to beat, freaked out

told me I was dead for a couple minutes

seemed like eternity

really took me on a whole different path

one of the things that came through that transmission, “go back to the earth”

fundamental premise of my entire experience here, ever since then

around 18 years old at the time

next time I ever spoke to somebody, really weird place

whole life tweaked, isolated

next person I spoke to: appalacian trial,

all I heard was go back to the earth, sounds like that’s the way to go back to the earth

cool, dropping everything, go to the trail, go to the woods see where life takes me

hiked the trail,

8-9 months

somethings I’ve learned in life, you can’t prepare for

think I know where I’m going, what I’m gonna do, what it will take, wasn’t true

broken in first few days

but I’m a very persistent individual, eyes on prize, had to keep going, went out with buddy,

didn’t have same persistence, can be grueling, being exposed to all elements, every day

first couple weeks, nothing but rain, head to toe, all your stuff, tweak your mental space and physical space

I kept on truckin, met amazing people

opened up to graciousness that exists in others, re-instilled my love of my fellow man, and compassion

coming from punk scene, I had lyrics I don’t exactlyi resonate with at this point, some that I do

some that…fuck the world, FTW, about to tattoo it on my forearm, thankfully I didn’t although now I would take that off to “fruit the world” so it’d still be applicable

back to the trail, ever expanding

stress fractures in foot

parked on largest waterfall on east coast, hung out, put foot in water til inflammation went down

while doing that, came across hippies, definitely open, but my punk background, I eat hippies for lunch,

expanded self, open to people, great energy, great passion for earth, not entirely at purple breather end of things, could resonate with their cause, going to rainbow gathering, never heard of such a thing, enlightened me,

cool,

decided to walk from florida to pennsyl

I was in the middle of their path

I said I’m going to gathering as well

hitch hiking excursion to gathering

really phenomenal thing.

TP: lots of good things, criticisms, some of most trusted mentors, hardcore devotees, know it’s a mecca, been on bucket list

MM: really opened me up even more, at first felt a little out of place, first rainbow gathering I went to in 1999, walking down a trail, punk kid sitting down by a river, cleaning some clothes or something, boom box, rocking old school punk, hippies walking by , turn that crap off, negativity towards punk kid, see him giving them a finger

people think it’s all love, it’s all everything at the gathering

invitation hippies had given me, paraphrasing, an invitation to a gather for people of all walks of life to pray for world peace

punk kid getting yelled out, connected with him, reflect back at myself, we are all here, I get that kid, alright, dont’ know, haven’t talked to him, get what he’s dealing with, really all walks of life

I was hooked, first gathering there for 3 months, went with 10 dollars, sustained my life for 3 months, dug a lot of shitters, made a lot of food, a lot of keeping fire going, hot water, it was a magical experience, helped me realize importance of feeling like you’re needed

getting kick backs of food, couldn’t ask for much more, sustenance

really changed my life

ever since 1999, only missed 3 rainbow gatherings

16-17 I’ve attended, really feel like family

see faces I’ve been seeing for 20 years

can’t say I connect with everybody, I have differences

no electronics, rules, flashlight, thanks for killin my night vision

TP: I was in the tree sits in oregon, early 2000s, lot of people from rainbow gathering would go to tree sits, a lot of memes, how I learned more about the subculture,

harshing mellow with lights, I can commiserate on both sides now, one up man ship, paul wheaton, some protesters they like to beat you over the head with their protest sign

MM: things have really changed, people walking down the trail text messaging

everything adapts and advances, so has the family, been interesting to watch

altered my perception of what can be, there is an opportunity for us to throw up some kitchens, cultivate and harvest foods, prepare them and share them

not a lot of cultivation taking place, not to say a lot of farmers don’t grow specific rows just to give to the family

farmers pull up from a trailer, from any corner of the country that they brought to feed people that share this vision

TP:

while on rainbow family, for a moment, mentioned before, I personally have only heard of the mythic legends of rainbow and burning man, wanted to experience both, spoken or unspoken tension between the two

segway of tactical permaculture, want to go to these places, hang out, participate in holistic debauchery, escape retreat get out of city

but also have urban guerrilla, urban permaculture, burning man and rainbow come to same place and time, in the city, actually come in and seize an urban area and print out a permaculture design and be a lasting net benefit,

boom festival in portugal, not just temporary autonomous zone, but a permaculture autonomous zone

hopefully be there some day, idea of a more applied use of all those ethics, all the people, ability to raise a barn, and party, and whatever

wanna talk about, so you have not been to burning man, have been in this other tribe, other clan, if you want to segway into if you’re real visionary and want to transform the world, bring the candle into darkness

MM:

never been to burning man, certainly know plenty of burners, heard stories, seen pictures, videos, on and on

the collaboration, definitely can be a great thing, from a rainbow perspective, speak for no body, no one can speak for another, just a bunch of individuals, going some place to collaboratively exist and pray for wold peace, beyond that there’s nothing,

can’t apply for permits, can’t get land under said name

gone to a lot of vision councils, can take days to over a week, learned a lot from some of the elders

other rainbow family listening, apologize if I botch it, if not mistaken, navajo offered land for rainbow family to collectively gather and stay, autonomous zone on tribal lands

because no body can represent the rainbow family, no body’s able to accept that

find that is a really strong element of rainbow ethics, I cannot speak for you, you cannot speak for me, we’re all autonomous here, awesome

also see how there’s a level of hindrence there, doesn’t provide framework to collectively gather and build these spaces for generations of time, just pop up events, a few months

what is the entity that would cooperatively manage that space, enough nah votes within rainbow, operates on consensus, if you don’t get consensus, you don’t get to move forward, empowering thing, slows things down, really good objective, within any form of governance, the slower it can move the healthier, jumping the gun..pitfalls

no body represents anybody, except for themselves

TP: brings up fork, validating sense that going back to paleolithic, presettled nomadic cultures, gypsies, you don’t collect diseases from animals, don’t pollute an area if you’re always nomadic, shifting, relocating, horde less stuff, less material objects,

huge respect, as anthropologist of radical subcultures and movements, I love the idea you don’t burn the spot, set upa lace, do your thing then move on, maybe cycle back again

two different modes, having a permanent location,

also notion or stay at location, own rent, squat, or be nomadic, multiple locations

practical permaculture informed, project, objective, mission,

go to this site, clean up brown field, plant stuff, cycle back in a few years, for next phase, more of a deployment,

installation work, facilitated

what if you had drones and different party lights, projecting lazer lights on contour lines for people to stomp and dig and build, permaculture design, light show that displays design on landscape, different teams all in the grove, cadence, dancing, next level stuff

MM: brother, that concept blows my mind, rainbow gathering maybe 2001, montana, amazing gathering hung out with ram dass, saw bob dylan, awesome folks out there

we went there, always an element for vision counsel, going to places that need healing, not just restorative work from an ecological perspective, also from spiritual, energetic perspective

places where massive battles have been fought, concept of altering the energetic pattern that is locked into that land, with this loving thing that takes place at rainbow, 4th of july

silence that takes place, from sunrise until rainbow noon, silence broken by children in parade,

silence, gathering around peace pole, ceremonially put into earth, so as we can direct our energy into the pole, goes into the earth and up to the heavens, one of the ways to infuse and release the new energy and the old energy that is ingrained in that space

ecologically, always found it incredible

between 10k and 40k people, a lot of pee and poop, with contour lines, seen this, if we could dig our shitters on contour lines these could be some seriously fertile beds for sprawling of wildlife plants

going back to montana situation, about 10 years later, went back

hit me one morning, opening tent, looking out seeing what could have been had we had some constructive planning 10 years previous

whenever choice was made to go back to montana, had we had the forsight to put into some type of plan

nomadically hit these spots, come back around to them maybe every 10-15 years, see ecological benefit

usually people talking about impact from negative perspective

clean up crew, site impeccable when we left, no devastation that ever took place

benefited greatly from being at that site

we could have really, all of us brought something with us to share to spread diversity of species, whatever survives, the conditions for it to occur are there

its happy, everything’s comingling,

have things we’d be able to harvest

cultivating is the hardest part

fruits of labor, 10 years later, would be a beautiful thing

TP: awesome, beautiful exploration, leads us to getting back to timeline

rainbow gatherings national forests, different vibe

who knows, just designing, curious, what was that process of evolution from you being a nature boy, having done the hiking, closer to earth, how did you become an ecological designer

MM: had heard the term permaculture, I believe first at a rainbow gathering

reading agenda 21 manual at library, spending days reading, UN soft touch plan for ways to organize and mobilize the direction of the planet, didn’t agree with it, banks running things, how they’ll be running thing, struck odd nerve, doesn’t seem holistic

somebody came up to me mentioning permaculture

couple years later, had hitch hiked around country about 2 years straight, came back to so cal, culture shock so heavy

la to san diego, no way sticking around, vibration not sitting well, go on other side of road, got out of california,

northern minnesota,

nicest place I’d ever been, relocated

up there, in a very tight knit community, one of most artistic, very socially involved

one of my buddies, really into permaculture, purchased designer manual, permaculture 1, lot of words I didn’t understand, just read a book that I didn’t quite get, then came across,

what we’d now call meetups, started going out,

permaculture in cuba, created design, implemented design with people of cuba, one of the gentlemen on that team, host of meet up,

tipped off of concept of greening the desert, from that point on, if you can seriously take desert biome and make it green, there’s something cool going on here, always wanted to participated in that something cool

we get busy in life, at time was contractor, living in housing co-op, took a lot of my time

building/grounds chair person, chair for funding and development, co-chair for finance, wrapped up, wasn’t pushing as hard as I could, educational/implementation of permaculture frame work

flame worker, glass artist, blowing glass

started biodiesel co-op, wonderful girlfriend

time was eaten up, interested in furthering permaculture studies, permaculture design course, nothing hit right time wise

one year

biodiesel shuts down in winter, large demand for biodiesel in fuel oil heaters, ways to market biodiesel, I went to washington, oregon, northern california, networking, to obtain biodiesel in the winter

4 month journey, in california, on the coast, go to san diego, visit family

friend offered work, doing sign installation, took work, paying amazing, while on one of job sites, co-worker backed over me with a truck

didn’t have NDE, another hard turn in my life, curses can turn out to be blessing

could not walk, told would never walk again, not an easy thing to sit with

after going through the heavy bouts of depression, I’ve always wanted to take a permaculture design course, I’m doin it

started me down the higher levels of my understanding with permaculture

2 week intensive

mind was blown

to say the least, all I wanted to do was perpetuate installations utilizing the techniques and understandings I had gained

took another course, and another course

heavy amount of info, retention, very small, remember things at the very beginning, the very end

a lot of material in the middle to get lost in the ether of the mind

kept taking it, again, again

wanted to better understand

fill in gaps

after a few pdcs, remember speaking with one of my mentors and teachers

late great, toby hemenway

really want to go to school, considering constitutional law or sustainable agriculture

education through university system, Toby looks at me, pulled a Bill Mollison on me, can you give me an example of a sustainable agricultural system,

not that I’m aware,

then how you gonna study

right, so true

so

I found myself perplexed,

you need to do whatever you think is best for you

if you’re interested in studying plants, study horticulture, how plants relate to soil and how soil relates to plants

have yet to meet lawyer who’s a happy individual

work with plants, tend to be happy

gonna pursue horticulture degree

amazing program

after that

heard permaculture described

younger brother, pdc in thailand

metaphor for permaculture

pdc is like being given a raft with a bunch of holes in it, get pushed out to sea in raft, have to plug up all the holes

holes are different sciences, permaculture is taking all the sciences and weaving them together

great metaphor

I’ve become certified in so many specialty modalities, gray water, holistic range management, super adobe construction, soil food web, mycology,

it’s endless, the sciences, thermodynamics

the more we understand these things , the more holistic of a design we can create, and implement

still at a point where I need crutches or a walker to walk

came across a biochemist, that gets quads walking

I’m not a quad, just needed assistance in walking

biochemist hit me with truths, unable to refute

run for money with body

inflammation went down, pain went away, could walk again, limited mobility because of contracts

regained mobility

taking in data

learn what biochemist did

studied with 3 biochemists

live blood analysis

things to be learned from every corner

biochem made sense, because of soil science

stake functions, things already learned

different realms

become much of my life at this point

passionate of regenerating living systems

soil, water, human terrain, animals,

certified in all sorts of modalities

all come together

in this web that we call permaculture

permaculture is really, not gardening

it’s something that you apply to whatever you do, could be a brain surgeon, apply principles in your surgeon practice

as long as reaping harvest from what we cultivate in a holistic manner

permanence within culture

everything gardens

fruits vegetables, fungal systems,

monetary, capital, things and stuff if that’s what is needed

holistic manner

all technically practicing permaculture

TP: permaculture rabbit hole

infinite fractal patterns, not just set of tools and techniques, philosophy, interdisciplinary science

attempts to define it

sustainable human settlement design

warren brush, living beautifully, everyones got a different way

permaculture is just applied ecology, repackaged ecology

true but not end all be all

is permaculture a cult, paul wheaton, put the cult in permaculture, joking

cynicism, too expense, hacked permaculture design course, permaculture party pack torrent

mentor, lets hack pdc certificate, I’ve put in work, read black book cover to cover, 72hour course with bill and geoff, king and crown prince, done the work, even went to see my punk band, considered that to be my talent show, year long membership, traded him one of first permaculture podcast websites

did our own value add/function stacking design of a student and master

made it work, to get the pdc into the hands of the working class, not enough has been done to get out of mlm pyramid scheme

people don’t make their money back on course

how many certified permaculture designers made the cost of the course back

this is the most priceless education you could ever get, if you take this course and don’t figure out how to make a sustainable living doing whatever you love…

I don’t think you can say it’s too expensive, can say it’s not accessible, amount of time, you need, multiple courses over weekends

radical movement, came out of various earth sciences, disgruntled looks at destructive poisoning, end game of industrial agriculture,

how to look at ethnology and anthropology of horticultural societies

frame work, infinitely scale and branch out in water, soil, trees, land forms, biomes

all from ecology, plus ecological anthropology

sophisticated academic scientific methodical

what were some big take aways, ah has from first course

when it clicked for you

super practical, how come this is not already mainstream

first moments of revelations

educational piece

quick intro to permaculture

MM:

crucial element obtained initially through pdc, understanding that the perfect system is the system that we are all birthed into, nature, nature doesn’t have flaws, as far as I’m aware of, it’s all creating its all consuming, everything feeds and everything eats everything else so there is no waste, fascinating

every ecological niche is included there

main thing with that would be observation of any of those elements

bees, ants, fungus, bacteria, trees, we can just go on and on, how water flows, on and on, comes back to these elements, naturally occuring

something aware of before first pdc

some of most successful systems built, we all use, the internet, sending packages through modems, and routers

my understanding the awareness of how to make that an effective system was done by watching ants, and how ants transfer data along their path,

mimicked how ants transfer data, this is how we’re transferring data right now, ,audio, files, the way that’s going to get from point a to point b mimics pattern for which ants send signals down the line

primary things clicked for me, first pdc

we’re already doing this, just not on a holistic scale, just in these little niches, and people win awards for it

observing nature, apply its patterns to whatever you’re looking to do

standing back and observing

mind gets in the way, nature doesn’t have that

observation, then implementation, perpetual process

never a one and done thing

everything is revolving around observation of the system you have designed to mimic nature

merely humans a piece of nature

our ability is hindered

we have to sit back and observe and see where we were incorrect

see if our observation changes the course of the pattern

we can be benefactors of that production and consumption

TP: love that, some new giving me chills awesome riffs, definitely be integrating that, hadn’t heard about the ants,

for the person who is now thinking okay permaculture, its a way to somehow in the course of the course you will feel confident to begin thinking using the algos of nature

exemplifying that logic

closing that loops, inputs and outputs, systems feedings systems, things be elegantly designed, not a lot of wasted effort, not a lot of toil, so much leveraging of energy, pretty much infinite coming from the sun, capturing and storing, trip trap trip trap, capturing and storing energy, putting it work, gets in engineering

early permies, electrical and mechanical engineers, impulse to construct and build, fix, take apart,

masculine, tendencies, exploring nature

balance of energy of gaia and energy of guys

genders in between

once you get to point of super power of thinking like nature,

being abundant, feed yourself and community, heal landscapes

scale, fold fertility onto itself, green eco magic, green the city green the city, do anything

bill mollison, real rebel, reapplying more natural paradigm to death culture of industrial chemical, agriculture and farming

bridge in time line to where you’re doing commercial enterprise, taking horticulture and permaculture, fighitng the system of agriculture, by subverting it from the periphery, creating new strategies to feed people, that subvert the evil empire of ag,

how you deployed yourself for permaculture and against the dominant paradigm of ag

MM: a mantra I really have embodied within myself, creating the conditions for things to occur

biomimicry, learning how to create the conditions for things to occur, then standing back to see if you were right, if it worked

shotgun blast with certain things, put out a 1000 seeds, don’t always have a 1,000 seeds pop up, if you’re lucky, half will

not of same species, may not be a aware of whats going to cultivate under x given conditions

a lot of time talking about all these systems generally roll back to some form of capital, it made me think about a great book that’s out there, the 8th forms of capital, and the brother that has brought us together, while he has had amazing implementations of design, he’s also had an even greater effect from a social capital perspective, being able to bring us together, creating conditions for whatever to occur

group that we’re all associated with, through his social capital, knowing all of us, create conditions for things to occur

co-aligned over the years, and at this point co-aligned on a project moving forward

TP: permabros

beloved brother, 2009-10, first started hanging out, seeing these giant wall size dry erase boards with mind maps

epic, back yard and front yard permaculture food forest, really living the dream, tickles me to no end, this very moment could have very well been a thought bubble on one of his mind maps

#wetrainedforthis

we need to do our craft, take center stage in this moment, ambulance chaser, I’m doomsday prepper, permies seen as apocalyptic

realized, the curse of that world utopian, or utopianism, way for realists to moderate the visionaries

such a curse to be put in that category, destined to fail, like 99% of back to land projects of 70s, may as well stay right in center of system and follow their rules

I know how to hack that curse, as the world gets more dystopian, whatever was utopian 10 years ago, life before cell phones, families talk to each other at restaurants, reading books

utopianism is driving forward looking in rear view mirror

utopian urge to live like the ancestors

knifes edge of industrial progress

utopian that’s easy, parents they chopped wood, but we’re gonna have robots doing it

myopic cultural amnesia

bring it to what the fuck we are doing now

we have been in the shadows, training, doing our own things, and hoping that we can create personal abundance, share the teaching, fruits of labor, no pun intended, brings us into full on the story of this site we’re on, without blowing our opsec and giving it away

so the story of this property in the best way you can deliver it without blowing our cover until we’re ready to unveil offerings to the public

you were already in utopian impossible future before me, you’ve been in this very sweet spot for a quite a while, many things done right

zelda flute planted me here

said vows to spirits, I take care of you, you keep me here

ancestors, animals, plants, minerals, what do you need from me, how can I stay here

big slice of heaven, promised land

big thank you, back to question, what’s the story of this magical little slice of heaven on earth?

well as an NLP practitioner in 2010 he was inducted into the order of hereditary Knights Templars of Britannia and filled the speaker to you and do you want to give a bit of background how how did you arrive at this point in your life to where you’re doing all this great work in the world being led my friend to another really not started out Consulting in the financial World coaching Traders I’m one more I realized it wasn’t the tools they were using it but the lifestyles they were leaving and in the process of been transforming my own life restarting various things like martial arts meditation alternative spirituality Tantra and I saw that these people needed coaching and much more than their trading techniques overtime started coaching them more and more about their lives and Lifestyles I got certification as a life coach life coach is an NLP practitioner and boy just more and more got into that side of it and Beyond just leading a normal life with many people Define a successful but adding in the energetic and the esoteric element where a lot of people don’t look and as you well know a lot of problems and successes both can originate someone more started going that route met a fantastic young woman who’s also a meditation coach we kind of traded techniques combined to techniques and that’s helped me know by formed I found a really effective way to work on each other and then eventually started working with it on other people and the festivals kind of grew out of that we started with a simple one day one night events and eventually agree to producing weekend-long 3-day Festival is now because it’s the same kind of idea gets the light out but now two more people at a time awesome and Ira curiosity is that did that evolve into a romantic partnership as well or is that she’s happily in a relationship with her boyfriend got married and no okay well we energetic awesome lot of people are surprised to hear that but yeah potential for that kind of dynamic could go either really well or have life challenges so I was curious if it did if that was the dynamic if you have tips for how to have successful co-creative relationships on that kind of plane but you really got to feel it out and it’s Unique to every circumstance and in our case we were both happy and her present relationships and yeah anything physical could muck things up with you we kind of already got past all that and went straight to the energetic so I really didn’t see much point in Miceli taking a step backwards and don’t feel like we’re missing anything that’s awesome I feel that there’s an interesting concept that I was turned onto not too long ago from a scholar of Dallas sexual Kung Fu and other more of Chinese traditional stuff and introduced me to the concept of what he called spinal puberty where he said that once you really get into these more deeper and take practices will you bring the energy you know how to pass the genitals been working with this creative life worth energy and to the other and higher chakras then everybody gives you more dynamism with all of your relationships you know plants animals family Divinity soil solutely people forget that we have six other chakras to play with and that is no understatement I had some really intense and deep meditations with people but some of some of my favorite are with animals or what’s Plants because they’re in that state already most of the time in a friend of mine said absolutely no say things like get everybody out of there like we went out to dinner once and she is like I’m sorry you know if you think I’m crazy but I like to make love to my food so can everyone put a little bit of intention into their consume me know from all of the pantry classes and workshops have taken in my life by far the sexiest one I’ve ever attended was one called conscious eating oh my goodness look at your food and appreciate it and smell it and hold it in your mouth for a while before you start to chew it and take your time to chew it and it’s so erotic I mean people that rush through their day and kind of scarf their food down I mean they’re still kind of missing out I was missing out for years and has the analogy of junk food sex vs Gourmet Stacks in life how you practice your craft how you do your work you can do it on a very kind of surface superficial get it done get it out of the way level or you can really take time to Lose Yourself and savor every single task friends that is the weaving of the energy to send Pink Floyd prison and even when you’re dealing with some adversity you know they’re so I always have something you know I pop a tire or something or you know even even has been times for my car’s been towed because I thought it was a for no Tollway and it would be ended up being a three or something and that would just stop and breathe even go okay I’m going to look around cuz some gift is in this environment and I’m not going to give up waiting right around the corner if you only take the time to look for it to break down once by the side of the road before the age of cell phones and it was a beautiful night for a walk I found out gas station was only half of my luck sometimes it’s blessings in Disguise and I remember I was going through a tough period in my life and a friend of mine told me and it’s really stuck with me I know it’s hurts but relishing the pain because it highlights the spectrum of what you can feel as a human just like you can take pleasure to its intensity so you know if you’re in an unfortunate situation it’s experience it’s a chance to experience the depths in the range of what it means to be human integrating the light in the Shadow with this world I know Alex Grey I watch this really amazing documentary where he talks about his just a cosmology that he expresses to his art and saying that he sees it it’s it’s it’s definitely a swirl with a great when it comes to the dark in the light so it’s really gets it on the Deep level one of my favorite people I got the photographs and painting on one occasion play music for him while he was painting on one occasion so I got a pretty magical tell me about your music that you Creighton I do mostly I do mostly mixing and producing at this point not too much composing that’s been the area has been focused on just we’re hearing stuff in other people’s music and really bringing it out polishing and making it even better that’s what I’ve really been enjoying and what types of music movie the most I mean I’m generally tend towards electronic music I started out as a rock producer actually every once in awhile we’ll do the occasional Rock Records still but I like electronic everything some things that make you move and dance two things that are really ethereal and take you on a journey also bring it up for me one of the things that we have been chatting about little bit just starting to chat about which made me excited to talk more which is it all kind of introduced the idea and see what you think about it since I’ve been studying Tantra I just I had the blessing of I have my first instructor being a singer and actress and a really powerful and really smooth and eloquent speaker in answer to him see if he would conduct the meditation ceremonies which I’m sure you got to know us as an instructor you have to develop the skills you can’t you got to really be an MC with it to get people to drop in and it’s and also you do they mail piece of you know the Richard bandler kind of found tonality stuff instead of just feel many things that have to hurt when they are really coming together they just you really go there and it’s it’s night and day with people who are kind of awkward with their delivery so I I had experienced you know early on as I got into was getting the Tantra and and and I was I always thought I was getting into more electronic dance music that the Pinnacle of the potential of Contra guided meditation would be for there to be massive sort of Festival scaled crowds dancing that were actually being conducted almost like a symphony where a country would be designing the Shiva Shakti choose choose an energy to resonate with you know all genders welcome to choose for this moment you know for this track or whatever we’re going to get in these formations and actually that’s what I’m not just having a yoga Workshop or two going on in the sidelines but for example the last one we did this spring Cosmic Carnival that’s pretty much what we did, Donna was her headliner who you might know he’s a very very esoteric Leo rented DJ makes a lot of his own music and definitely that element is present in it we actually meditated with him before he went on stage we had five experience meditation structures on stage and that’s exactly what we were doing one mass-energy working over the whole crowd while he’s going to his set well and so were you were you were all in sync sort of on the stage projecting the group field energy field that I’ve heard that’s what we do meditation technique is somewhat grounded in white pants ride comes from that tradition but it’s it’s very much about connection we don’t do have any chance we don’t stare at mandalas we don’t look at a candle flame cuz we found you know if you’re counting your breath you’re counting your breaths do not meditating staring at a candle flame you’re doing all the work not the candle flame it’s possible to get there on your own doing it that way but it takes years and years and years of practice what we do is very different we in this is why I took meeting somebody else to really kick it into high gear we going to the meditative State for the student and then we simply projected out so everybody can focus not on doing some technique but literally I’m sitting back and experience fan that’s the whole idea and when we do it larger scale at a festival we use the music as a carrier weigh so yeah we’re totally in sync with each other that’s what we’ve been training to do for more than a year now we thinking to each other than we just blast it out into the crowd over the music that’s awesome do you have you seen any effects from that people reported or that you observed anything particularly absolutely and the brats and depth of the experience really varies from Individual to individual those who operate cash see what’s and get right away what’s going on and you know they go into it right away and they help the crowd around them go into its others might just feel really good happier than usual you know it really doesn’t matter if they’re into what’s going on or not some can get a really deep profound effect out of it something just leave feeling better than they did before doesn’t really matter if they understand why right you know what this is this is really going in a an interesting in an awesome Direction cuz I feel like I’m I guess I went from a rock background specifically punk rock and heavy metal with your some of the I mean not just heavy metal but Extreme kind of metal and modern extreme metal I guess and and it took meeting a guy who had to turn me on to the 4:30 to trip and show me cymatics videos and unless you got to as a musician you got to take more responsibility for what you’re doing to people with your music Marilyn Manson Nine Inch Nails and then kind of me like why do you feel yourself with such painful negative emotions and then worked so hard to cleanse yourself out of it and when I looked at it that way I was kind of like that kind of music genre of music I want to relax at home that usually doesn’t come up any more you know it was the same with food I grew up eating meat my background is Russian so we need like three times a day and for a long time I’ve wanted to go vegan because of you know how I feel about the treatment of animals and also what I read about the benefits of it healthwise every attempt always fail tell a teacher told me you’re thinking of it in terms of what you’re giving up think in terms of what you’re gaining and that really turned it around for me neuro associative conditioning is Tony Robinson call it right or so she did in the totally are you running from Pain are you running towards pleasure it’s a very very different effect hell yes it’s very much what you’re gaining I remember when I completed my first month I’m like okay I did it I’m going to go celebrate grab a burger from Jack In The Box I feel terrible in my stomach I couldn’t wait for my body process at 6 contrast yeah you know once you don’t do it for political view you don’t do it for some boy or girl you’re trying to impress you do it for you because because of what you’re gaining not because of what you’re giving up write the whole $0.42 for 32 thing absolutely I seen cymatics of both for 32 and a for 4440 is of course how modern musicians tune there a and every other string is usually tuned on a ratio off of that a432 is known as Verdes a and it’s actually how they used to tune their instruments in the old days the Practical upshot actually is very few of us have heard a classical piece of music the way the composer intended it’s because they simply tune their instruments differently back then and the time attic waves there’s there’s a reason these things form these patterns that tend to resemble sacred geometry once you get beneath matter Einsteins the MC squared shows with his energy there’s energy and light was quantum physics it’s trying to solve right now this riddle of how an electron can be in two places at once you know because when you look at the world energetically as opposed to physically based on the Newtonian model it behaves very differently it’s not subject to the same rules all matter originates as energy energy is what holds it together under the surface we now know that only 5% of our universe is actually matter 20% of Dark Matter 75% is this thing we call Dark Energy you know astronomy and physics fully acknowledged it but the moment we have human beings start talking about energy people look at you funny like you’re some new-age hippie but we know it’s 75% of the universe less than 5% of physical matter so how does this stuff get shell together will energy behaves in waves and when waste cross each other to standing points and standing waves that are created and that’s exactly what these geometric patterns Flower of Life and sacred geometry are trying to illustrate Forest highway is intersected behave together and through these crafts cross points create what we experience is physical matter knowing all that wow you have a frequency that’ll take a pile of salt on a dish and form a really beautiful geometric pattern or you have a frequency that totally scatters it it kind of makes you think yeah I know I know I’ve experienced the effect has several websites you can go online where you can hear a piece of music for a few minutes at 4:32 and then suddenly they switch to 4:40 I feel every cell in my body is upsetting my there is definitely a difference and anybody who dismisses it as though it’s just conspiracy theory tried out for yourself experiments that were done on water with the different words and intentions projected into them and how it changed their structure that is a great analogy because you have water that’s taken to the point of freezing and held there so it freezes slowly as it absorbs the vibrations of either the frequency or you know the word experiments are the most fascinating because they show that sought has a vibration to a retention has a vibration to it that can be felt the reason these crystals formed the way they do growing out their little tentacles is here against are responding to the frequencies that already exists the subtle energy that underlies everything they form according to those patterns to those vibrations all right so good-looking that for me I said that when I had this transformation going into more sacred dance music obviously I felt a few things were kind of obvious on the surface for one guy after being a musician who is inducing bloody drunken lazy mosh pits for in almost 20 or 15 years or something like that was my contribution to the world not that there wasn’t beautiful things like people being empowered inspired and and sort of awaken to political Consciousness in and joining movements then different kinds of Eric wasn’t much and I’m proud to have been a part of that but absolutely it’s a good way to get a message across to good way to release frustration as you said it does energize people but there are things if you didn’t have that contrast that you would think they would be left to be desired so I felt like an imbalance you know if after all those years and when I got into psytrance and I started to move me and I started to just surrender to the Shakti in before I even knew I get from a tantric perspective what that means to to to to be a man that becomes graceful because he moved by Angelic goddess possession you know if variable way to put it to the energy it feels amazing and it moves you to be grateful even if you’ve never been trained to dance and it’s just clothes and then you see the different kinds of patter set patterns that emerge on the dance floor where people or completely just so melted into Bliss and there’s no hostility and everyone is sort of I mean homophobia is just totally melted away and everyone should running me over by Care Bears there is just like this beautiful beautiful contrast Jimmy wants to try to get into it and then seeing things happen like people winding up with like snowballs a giant snowball is winding up these massive love energy balls and just throwing them at each other hurling hurling each other and just feeling explosions of a positive energy and I really thinking while I mean I know a lot of people from the darker the more you know how to spell sounding music on Earth it just killed him so to the route they’re raping people and beating each other up and that really sorcerer the quick for me that this is psychotherapy it’s it’s like purging demons it’s incinerating demons it’s doing all of this all these different things and always different levels and and I really feel like the the potential of it is let’s say I guess this is kind of throwing outside experiments in in visions that I’ve had that I’ve just imagine maybe this can kind of kick off for a discussion of how let’s say we had infinite funding and it was in and all of the patriarchal dominator Gatekeepers and holders of of wealth and power we’re just to surrender and say okay we need we need to have a new age of psychedelic goddess worship that’s what’s going to save the world and let Susan find some people who have been working with this and give them the resources to roll this out as a solution to solve The World’s problems get the feminine aspect expressed through all Sexes and genders the feminine aspect guide some political and technological decision-making and let’s clean up some of these messages that have obviously are bringing us to the point of Extinction and how do we ice I guess one of the one of the things that I would launch as an initiative with infinite funding and then I’ll hand it over to you for what it what comes to mind for you and we can you know hospice idea back and forth but I wouldn’t I feel like the most compelling kind of one of the most compelling projects that I’ve had in my mind was to see the potential of taking all of you know the people who are really suffering the masses who are suffering with all of the neuroses the mass Neurosis that’s been induced by all of these toxic inputs into our biological systems and all these toxic and harmful and puts into our mental psychological systems in all this stuff and just began to create massive group exorcisms basically that are happening with trained like you’re projecting the sake of geometrical sound patterns and having the Angelic trained country cos and and healers from different traditions and being able to have these sort of massive immersive experiences where the people who just have not had mystical experiences and it had been sold these horrible products and it just suffered for them to be able to go through the gates into a festival and just be in this massive shock The Vortex where they’re going to get to Stout and transformed and then sort of initiated into and given you no training and tools and all the things I feel like the the transformational festival movement has been like a think tank or laboratory doing the research to retool us as the white blood cells for human going to be able to all we need now really is sentenced to get these Laboratories to just roll out and execute efficiently and not an authoritarian way not in a cultural revolution kind of love are you touched on a key element I just read an interesting quote from Buckminster Fuller he said you don’t get there by trying to fight the existing system you get there by inventing a better system and the rest just takes over on its own there’s a very interesting effect I’ve noticed as a meditation teacher there’s more people than ever interested in the stuff I heard I can feel energy I heard I can see energy show me people from all walks of life not just yoga types there’s definitely been an increase the interest and also as an instructor I’ve noticed we’re shifting people much faster that used to take several classes several sessions the vast majority of people were Shifting the very first session we’re usually doing it within the first 5 10 minutes so not only are more people interested but it’s becoming easier and easier to shift them into that space are you familiar with the Schumann resonance that’s the Earth the natural vibration of the Earth’s electromagnetic field cry right it’s been measured at 7.86 Hertz and it’s been by the way also a sacred geometry number and it’s been at that frequency for at least 300 million years constantly as soon as we’re able testing made-to-measure it’s accelerating the last three years it’s been averaging 8.6 hurts it’s been reported to spike a ties 14 so there’s a very profound thing but that implies that more people that start taking on this work and working to better themselves reach deeper levels of understanding within themselves in the universe around them the Earth is responding and as the Earth response more and more people become interested in it and it becomes easier to make that shift so there is very much and accelerate Tori feedback loop at work that’s been tangibly metric and it’s very very exciting the revolution is happening is happening without anybody having to force it there’s simply a better way that’s been discovered and I would argue rediscovered if if we look at history at over the long-term and not just as far back as Egypt or Mesopotamia I would say rediscovered we rediscovered a better way of being of existing of relating to each other and it’s contagious you know it is spreading the Earth is responding and accelerating that change there’s a documentary being made about this very thing I called the shift you can go on YouTube and see a trailer of it it’s starting to happen yes there’s chaos and turmoil and wars and violence starvation and global warming in the world but there’s another change bubbling under the surface as well you know turbulent times are turbulence because change is happening and the cool thing is the hundredth monkey effect what we’ve observed first in monkeys learning to wash their food and it’s very quickly spreading and becoming a species y practice to the experiments been duplicated in England with birds learning to take the Caps off of milk bottles from the birds far away off the island was starting to do it in there was no communication between the two sets of words the exciting thing about this hundredth monkey effect is you don’t have to change the majority you don’t even have to change clothes to 50% in fact what are observation of other species in nature shows as you have to shift about 1% of the population and then suddenly the change rapidly spreads and become species wife silence so that there is the darkness there’s those that you don’t want it’s listening to 432 and being locked into it all the time I heard in the UK the government will provide you a radio if you can’t afford one that’s how important it is for them or 32 are they they bury it in fiction but it’s there you know there is a message behind every great work of fiction there’s the frequency there’s the corn syrup they put in our food at the fluoride in their water a lot of people are worried about chlorine the good thing about chlorine is let let your water stand for half an hour to an hour at evaporate at room temperature fluoride is actually the more dangerous wanted calcifies pineal gland and a meditation it’s all about the pineal gland of proverbial third eye it’s in the direct Center of your brain know it doesn’t sit on the surface of your skin the way it’s usually drawn in people if you were to take a cross section of the brain front to back and look at it from the side you would see the Eye of Horus the Ancients knew all about this stuff the the Vatican knows about the stuff you would think in their Courtyard there would be a big statue of Jesus or across or something but there’s a Pinecone the pineal gland have a kind of the key to this Awakening and we’re putting fluoride in our water which calcifies it right so let’s let’s get into well if I can ask you let’s say said that you know you had this infinite budget and we’re pretty we’re pretty keen on a lot of what these obstacles are and what the intentions are of what say we can use different words for put the evil eye like I said there’s no reason to feel great hope and just feel that the transformation is happening and it doesn’t have to be at or tearing or violent it can be beautiful and and a design Revolution is kosher folks but he don’t like to say so the pope actually just recently actually met face-to-face with some of the sexual abuse survivors been tried to control them and how good for him and throw it up in the air asking God essentially acting as though he is dumb very puzzled about what’s actually going on which would be obviously kind of a whitewash your PR stunt kind of saying thank you for criticizing and what is he really going to do and it’s much worse it’s has to be much worse than then what’s being admitted to but I thought let’s stay somehow he could be reached because if he’s clips that question out there what’s happening why don’t know I have God’s not telling me okay well I can think of a few goddesses who are Mighty pissed off that I have direct communication with through my journeying who would love to have a group of people sit down with this guy and this is just sort of sort of drinking kind of like a like a comic book or something you know what this come to Jesus effective what it what if the men who are who have been putting all the control an iron grip of domination that’s really resulting in just more Pathways of of the worst types of of abuse to just to just take hold so from of people on this planet it’s if they did have some Forest bring them to their knees to surrender that power to the authority of the Divine mother archetype of a goddess you know what what kind of Justice would would be meted out and if it were to just say okay all the gold in the Vatican its going to the Psychedelic goddess worshippers because that’s where the answer is that they’re looking for so it’s so it’s it’s like you want to know what to do with all that power to figure this out I say give it to the people who are who are working to restore the authentic relationship to the feminine aspects in and let’s build the sacred architecture and the agricultural systems in the music and build build culture from that place of of restoring that energy and not obviously persecuting it denying it and it burning at the stake and and suppressing it restoring it is the key word of it’s It’s Not A New Concept here again if we look before Mesopotamia a lot of these ancient civilizations were made sure I could matriarchs typically based you know Toby actually restoring what Humanity has already experienced stairs are very great documentary you can watch it for free on YouTube called the great year that talks about some of these larger Cycles 13th 2026 thousand year cycles of which 2012 was apart a lot of people think it just flipped like a switch it’s actually a transmission that will take us through 2160 the transition itself takes time 2012 just kind of kicked off the beginning of the transitory state but you look at the cycle and you overlay it over history use you start to also understand the balance between the patriarchal Societies in the feminine base so we’re just completing the loop as as cool as all this stuff we’re discovering about ourselves on an energetic level and quantum physics about the universe around us is we’re just starting to scrape the surface of this is the very beginning to touch on what you talked about the societies of the future the festivals are kind of an experiment at that but in the end you know we’re still find supplies from the outside world we’re still bringing them and we’re still packing our garbage and taking it out ideally you would want a permanent intentional community that grows its own food instead of bringing it in that live this kind of Lifestyle full-time not just a couple of weekends out of the year and I remember reading one study like you would think primitive peoples with having to hunt for their own food or grow their own food build your own shelter farm near crossed that they would have no time at all left to enjoy life but we work a 40-hour work week 8 hours a day 5 days a week that’s study concluded you granted you would work 7 days a week but about two to three hours of your day would be taken up with survival matters leaving the whole rest of the day to explore Consciousness art raising your kids properly instead of popping them down in front of the TV creating things building things discovering things and there’s already models in the world we can point to there’s an intentional community that was started in the 70s in Northern Italy in the mountains about Turin they have now been acknowledged by the UN as a model of sustainable living they were granted Federation Ship by Italy they circulate their own currency now and not only do they live a better healthier life but some of the research that’s been coming out of there is mind-blowing they’ve figured out a way to communicate with plants the electromagnetic waves not only encouraged them them them to grow bigger and stronger and healthier without the use of fertilizers but they’ve gone as far as doing concerts with bushes and trees where they take the electromagnetic field at these plants emanate and a Amplified and translated into an audio signal that we can hear and have it work it’s just playing along with it answers given by plants as they are working on growing meat right now you know maybe you won’t be able to convert the whole world to vegetarianism but maybe you don’t have to maybe there’s a way to grow the meat without the animal that’s much more Humane there’s no consciousness that your extinguishing so it’s it’s really mind-blowing and groundbreaking and they’re called down on her which is the Egyptian word for city of light and they’ve got a website at down on her. Or check it out it’s really inspiring and I’m wondering if there were more budgets if more of these communities sprang up all over the world wow what can we accomplished and there won’t be any need to convert those that hold the keys to power now there won’t be any of them to really punish them they once enough of us do this still have no choice but to go along with it and the worst punishment you can inflict on somebody that’s harm someone emotionally sexually energetically is to open up their capacity to feel because once you realize what you’ve done there is no greater punishment needed going back to the example of when I gave up meat that’s what really sold me the day I got sensitive enough to actually feel the last moments of the cow was the last hamburger I ate I didn’t need anybody lecturing me or listing the pros and cons once you feel it I believe human beings are inherently are good for lack of a better word not evil I view it in terms of not so much good and evil but maintaining the status quo there are those who are in power who fear losing that power they live in a world of scarcity that if they gave up there if somebody else was in power they would have to give up some of their powers they don’t live in a world of abundance where everybody can be empowered so they’re their battle their Quest is to maintain the status quo they’re not necessarily trying to do bad to us they just want things to remain as they are because they like where they’re at Naturally but once there’s a better way that’s clearly better and they see they’re not giving up any of their own power of privilege by letting us coexist it’s it’s kind of going to go from there on it’s own I feel yeah I have a lot of faith in that Tipping Point critical mass Hunters monkey stuff out of food that you picked in the Gardens at morning than you do out of food that’s been sitting in a truck for a week yeah that’s the key that’s the key I think leverage point is to plus I have so much personal faith in Ben permaculture design I feel like it’s the electricity bill in motivation for each person by if it truly is a better way of life it’ll catch on and if it’s not we’ll keep refining it still we’ve come up with something that is so do you you probably I’m I’m really we really don’t have a choice by the way right we’re running out of time civilizations watching from other dimensions are planets which I personally feel like they’re certainly are as they’re probably gambling some of them are just betting on us you know your mining up your own planet and polluting it when you have a helium Rich moon in you know what constant fear of synchronous orbit and Tesla hundred years ago gave you the means to project electricity wirelessly yeah it’s this is the B on the eleventh hour and I hit my I think they’re probably laughing their Glenn cash you guys you’re so close I have this I know I had this I had this Epiphany I I wrote about it and I’m kind of developing it is an idea to just an entertaining thought experiment about how I can imagine a key leverage point which would invert the pathology of arrows the sexual scarcity that’s imposed on people that’s making them become addicted to pornography and and now younger and younger males throughout the world as the Internet connected world or having erectile dysfunction and inability to function emotionally or sexually with with actual human partners because they become so desensitized to sensuality and just completely numbed and actually just deformed in many ways through this massive very recent high speed internet which is relatively recent for and end up extreme just that it’s being one one monstrous disordered disease of what’s happening on the on the planet and I’ve been deeply researching this and trying to find a way out of this disaster in MN try to analyze where it’s coming from and I believe there is a way out of it, it involves us getting past sexuality as this awkward taboo Ray we’ve been culturally conditioned for 5,000 years to think of it either and something for procreation or something really really dirty to not talk about in Barrie under the sheets you kind of touched on it yourself to getting desensitized by porn because they think that’s what sex is pornography and sensuality are actually pull it off if that’s the goal of pornography is to get off this very little sensuality in that right as you know from tantric practice particularly Dallas practice that it’s actually anti getting off you try to prolong it as long as possible literally are Polar Opposites but getting people to the point that they’re comfortable with each other and with themselves and with sexual energy as an energy is it is really where it begins a lot of Contra as you know is it is not even involving sex there’s a lot of gazing there’s a lot of breathing that goes into it and most people the form of meditation we teach is an open eye gazing meditation I can tell you first-hand people feel really really awkward just sitting in front of a person and looking at them it may feel really really weird so is it any Wonder we have all these hang up to when it comes to physically touching a person being also it really could learn to interact together on a different level as a species we kind of have to go back to and start with sex we got to get over these feelings of awkwardness write this it the scarcity in the articles are completely artificially imposed illusion of scarcity about the food supply right that we both know and Buckminster Fuller if you know we can be a human success or we can be a success on this planet and all of the ecological mechanical means technological means or are here it’s the matter of overcoming the opposition will and having a political will to take back the those the power to defeat ourselves and also so I I send that to this problem of how people are denied like you said shamed and while we’re this this sexual shaming culture that’s been imposed all across the world know I see that the the effective it has become quite consciously in it while I was conscious right word but very strategically is a business model get take away their sexual sovereignty and then sell nipples and you know fragmented two-dimensional images of it associated with products and essentially bottle stick human sexual activity even to the point where you’re getting turned on by things that are not even real or things that are actually really harmful and destructive and then people are it’s now stuck and he’s extremely like painful and debilitating addiction Loop and I feel that if you look at its you know that the effective the entertainment industry and I guess where I’m going to where I’m going with this idea of Leverage points for how to roll out a transformation now that I feel like we have we have a more compelling experience for people as cultural read designers you know we have Shakti we have high Neil Novation we have better food better music on the frequency level there’s all these things that I think her are powerful medicines that are bit really do lyrics just really compelling and when we went when we can demonstrate I think through you know through sharing a beauty of these fees for the ancient rediscoveries I guess then the aspiration of young men specifically throughout the world to become essentially rapists and pimps that that’s that’s the most glorious aspiration thanks to the modern pop of the music industry and the images that are being projected and what they think sex actually is which is this completely you know lower chakra reptilian get it over with and conquer the next potential mate so that this final puberty kind of thing of look let’s bring I want to see the that’s why I made that music video that that you seen you know since this is trying to redefine the potential of our potential for people so they associate that the tenderness and the focus in the attention can make spiritual transformation and growth happen and that is more more valuable and rewarding than being cool or tough or having well you can’t then you can’t conduct race that you can only lead them to experience at the end once you experience the alternative set this really no calling back and it’s not just the males that need to be re-educated obviously it’s a huge part of it but the females also they are either ashamed of or freighter feel awkward about their power once once a female really fully experience is what it is to be a goddess is magnificent transformation that takes place but there are a lot of Hang-Ups to work through to get to that point with a lot of people it’s amazing as you do a survey how many women have never experienced an orgasm even more how many women in general are just not interested in sex or view it as something they give to their men as some kind of reward you know the whole idea of Shiva and Shakti and dual circulating energy has just lost upon people really and it’s every bit as much I think a re-education that needs to take place with the wind as with the men make it simple for people when I say things like normal so I think most of the things that are wrong with the world are the result of people not spending hours and hours and hours completely in awe of each other in the bedroom there you go and are you going Waking Life really in love with your garden in love with your children in love with your partner in love with your definition of spirituality begin take this agitated the hyper the hyper masculine female and the hyper masculine male are out there cutting down trees and will they help because they’re not horizontal with take it back if you find me any any any woman that thinks of sex is something they do for their man has never really experienced sex of any man that thinks sex is something they get from their woman has never really fully experience it but once you do once you realize there’s a whole other way to relate to people in to connect with people you’ll you’ll see it not just that you’re a man with the females in your life you’ll find yourself relating differently to the men in your life and the women will relate differently to the women in their lives and it’s a sign of relating differently to plants and animals that will be much more difficult to cut down a tree when you view it as a living Consciousness and not just something that is in your way blocking your view I meant that’s really where it starts the fundamental level just like you know they know about frequencies that’s why 4:40 is so prevalent and not for 4:32 they know the profound effect of it they know the profound effect that a reawaken the age of sexuality would bring that’s why they want us thinking of it only in pornographic or procreational turns the way you bring about that Revolution. Gandhi told us you know be the change is very hard to change individuals it’s even harder to change a society but work on yourself start with yourself try how you relate to your partner or find a partner that you can relate to in that way make your focus studying yourself take up meditation take up a better diet become more conscious of what you put in your body and how you exist what frequency of a vibratory rate you spend the majority of your life in take on that work and you will see you know my relatives see me at Family reunions feel like my goodness Trey you haven’t paid and I’m like would you like to know why her whole lifestyle little pieces on Dell make little improvements and they will inspire their friends and neighbors and if that’s really how these things start be the change focus on what you can change which is yourself in your immediate environment around you your immediate relationship will you have the mainstream which is now projected all over the world. Just say the music industry in Hollywood the image factory of what of what human sexuality what the potential is about I had a very interesting experience about a year-and-a-half ago I got to interview Oliver Stone Son I was also a filmmaker and he told me about the origins of the word Hollywood there’s a certain kind of wood from the holly tree that Druids use to make their wands out of and actually very many spiritual Traditions used to use to carve their sacred relics out of and it is the the wood from the holly tree apparently that name was chosen Hollywood so that people the people in power would remember that their job is not just to entertain or tell stories their job is really to cast and maintain the spell over people we’ve got these two extremes it’s like that the cancerous disease of destructive shallow disconnected sociopathic are the majority right now but their time is numbered that’s what the great year shows us is civilization goes through cycles and chest they are in power now they are the majority but their days are numbered so let’s talk at more about how ice I would say or I want to act as soon as you a question let’s see I know I have you know this. I have much less experience on the ground in the transformational festival seeing in N circuit than you do so I’m curious is is he okay you’ve experienced it send it on a totally different level because you you felt the profound effects of it right we’re still we’re on the same page and I have some there’s things about I guess it’s so complex you can’t really make any generalizations about it looks fake but I’m curious from your perspective it would say let’s say that is a huge influx of of capital came into being able to roll the stuff out because that’s a people are just so fed up and Andrew just willing to have a major change and they’re like bring it on as soon as possible you know we’re ready and do you feel like V this movement worldwide movement and again it’s very diverse but is it ready are there is there enough training within it enough discipline and training within it to be able to mobilize really effectively and actually bring let’s say you know the best time to do something is when you’re not completely ready for it if you have to go through waiting for the perfect moment it’s in a used to keep waiting I wasn’t ready for my first meditation class when my teacher plus me down they just inform me once I will by the way I want you to sit in on tomorrow’s class I was scared I would didn’t know I was ready to go in front of a group of people especially the kind of work we do on an energetic level the best time to do something is when you’re not ready because you will rise and you will grow to the occasion and as far as the influencing the people with money and power it’s happening I read a very interesting article concerning this year’s Burning Man festival the reporter was really down on the fact that it’s becomes a new Silicon Valley hotspot everybody was there through kirberg Sergei from Google the founder of Twitter they were all there and they had kind of their own Elite rich people’s Camp they Park their RVs into and around it so nobody could get in inside they had servants they had celebrity chefs cooking their meals they had air condition and this article was really down on the fact of hey we don’t want these rich, this isn’t the Burning Man experience they’re changing it isn’t the point of Burning Man radical inclusion all the time it’s not just people that are like you and hate isn’t there now about 10 billionaires that experience to our way of life and our going home really thinking about it well yeah yeah yeah it’s so so maybe the idea where one of these guys funds either an ongoing festival or you know closer to home or maybe even one day a permaculture intentional Community along these lines I think as a result of this Burning Man that day just got a lot closer in a lot more possible and I don’t view them coming out and hang out doing their thing as a negative thing at all because they can’t help it they took home a piece of our culture and lifestyle whether they like it or not no matter how much they try to insulate themselves from it right at least people have the money in the power to start influencing people and hey you know what I’m glad it was the founders of Twitter Facebook and Google and not say you know the chairman of BP because these people are that much more open to what we have to offer a lot about the internet being being the feminine aspects coming to life and wiring Consciousness and empathy and compassion together it’s all about in their own activity isn’t it yeah if their hearts are cracked open and they see that future and they realized it be it would say they are total egomaniac send and I’m not I don’t like to judge anybody I think everyone is everyone is either a psychedelic goddess worshiper or they don’t they have lived in your life yet that’s my only judgment from New York lottery tickets they are in their own way and you know while I don’t necessarily condone it there they’re getting a taste of it and they’re going to be touched on some level even if it’s under the surface and subconscious for now they are being exposed to it and that little by little and that Trend can only continue while we’ve been talkin here I just saw the nearly full moon come out from behind the clouds so Gloria site that took my breath away for a moment I mean there’s going to be you know even if it’s a moment to look up at the moon and appreciate where you are in your place in the cosmos people are starting to have more and more of these kinds of experiences where they haven’t connected the dots yet like you and I have maybe but don’t get there right now we’re filling them with ideas and with experiences and with things that are bubbling under the surface and their subconscious and before too long these things will bubble to the surface this brings me back to finish what we started with which is a ritual design this has been happening even though it hasn’t been by conscious design it has been happening I remember 10 years ago when we were looking around for a place to hold a moontribe we talked to a Native American reservation and then like so you want to get a bunch of people together to stomp your feet of Mother Earth yeah we totally get it of course you can use our land we were doing rituals back then or anything sacred right over people that got the deeper meaning of it even if we didn’t and they let us do our thing and be transformed subconsciously by it even though we didn’t know what we were doing on the conscious level and look here we are now now we’re throwing these music events specifically for the purpose of people getting together experiencing a different frequency a different vibration a different way of living of eating of relating to each other even if for a temporary piece of time now it’s intentional now that’s exactly why we’re doing it you know and one one thing that I’ve had asked of me people are like what you’ve had enough have a diverse background you know you make something EDM music and you teach meditation you know that isn’t that kind of a dichotomy of sorts and I keep coming back to Tesla’s flotation if you want to understand the secrets of the universe look at frequency and vibration all frequency whether you look at how matter emerges from energy and is held together whether you look at music whether you look at meditation even an artist painting a canvas color is a frequency starts the colors they choose to use and how they make some together in the end it’s all frequency in all we’re trying to do is raise the vibration through whatever medium is available to us there was a kind of a Heyday of this reclaim the streets this is before occupied way before I can pee but there was kind of a Heyday of politicized ravers I don’t know how much of it was supposed to say psytrance or what I don’t know exactly what they’re what they were jamming but they would do these amazing events in I know in different parts of Europe where they would have these amazing Street parties anxious shut down City centers and have massive portable Raves that they would just throw and talk about vibration and is that any different than what Gandhi did Martin Luther King when people would walk down the street holding hands singing their favorite songs write a dimension that has not yet been may be tested or explored but you’re you’re on The Cutting Edge of this and I’ve got some ideas for what could be you know what potentials are but I’m seeing I guess this is to backup a second I feel I feel that there is a lot of what’s happening is the unconsciousness of people feeling there’s no they don’t have a card opening experiences so how if you can structure put a little bit more structure not you know nothing too heavy but a little bit more design and structure and form with this conscious conscious sort of design design elements so that I mean cuz I’ve had experiences where it was okay there no one who left this ritual can say that there isn’t intelligent life in the universe be on this planet, you can’t say that there isn’t divine feminine energy you can’t say there isn’t Divine masculine energy because we just sculpted a whole massive like Palace of Otherworldly healing nurturing energy that took very good took the form of the and the textures of the emotions that were guided through and it’s just a whole journey we’re your kind of leaving a leaving this some tangible energetic sculpture that is isn’t it it’s more than just sort of seeing people Groove and kind of jump around like popcorn you know just kind of hit me kind of morph into some sacred forms and stuff but for the most part people to music festival artists in their own world and sometimes or kind of Link arms and square dancing dosey doe and stuff around which is beautiful and like I said I’ve seen people just sex throw snowballs of Love energy at each other but I I really want to see the future of you know with this idea that looking at the electrical engineering schematics of the ancient concert pooches and going well will you scale this up and you’re going to have your going to like he’ll the chakras of the planet if you’re going to create these massive and if you were to stay connect on different latitudes or different times and do some of those 6 p.m. it’s like they did with the the global meditation for peace you know what is the earth dance and stuff like that but they have actual Tantra ritual design elements in Mass Massachusetts it’s coming it’s coming if you look at a map of where all these pyramids and sacred sites are located on the earth be at South America Egypt Bosnia now they’ve discovered pyramids that are even older than some of the others they’re not placed randomly their place to bury strategic points around the earth and these are devices for amplifying human energy you know this before it has happened and it will happen again and I believe extraterrestrial entities more so than a possibility I think being alone in the universe is a statistical impossibility and that’s just on this plane once you add all the other planes of existence laugh our own reality the universe is of very very populated place and there’s entities watching us who are just like here again not necessarily evil maybe just Pro status quo you know they’re watching us with fear and trepidation over what we may become and the same time there’s entities that are watching us maybe even helping us were excited about what we are to become because it’s necessary to be evolution of the universe we we play a much greater role in this than we realize and it’s not just us intuitive as individuals that sucks as a species it’s our planet as an instrument that was designed to collect and amplify and send this vibration out right it’s not just change on a planetary scale that we’re at the precipice of this this whole planet has a role to play I Believe In the galactic evolution these are exciting times my friend the reason we chose to reincarnate during this time that’s awesome bro I’m feeling I can feel the energy right now in this last five minutes I’m just standing in a ball of positive check the energy getting thrilled thinking about this do you have sex I’ve ever had my full body energetic orgasmic blast-off Third Eye Activation and and if I want to just hand it to you if there’s anything more that you feel like you want to explore and how do you feel do you think this is I would say if there was a message I wanted to leave people with its don’t be afraid of the unknown I spent the better part of my life having psychic and metaphysical experience isn’t being afraid of them either think of it as thinking of it as something is dark and spooky or being afraid of myself that I’m come freak my goodness inside only started this journey years ago I I Relish in and now my business card says metaphysical professional why why hide it if you have been having strange experiences explore them don’t be afraid of them dive headlong into it don’t be afraid of your sexuality either if your current partner is afraid gently lovingly encourage them and if they still won’t change find somebody who’s willing but explore what you’re capable of as a human being Explorer your Birthright become all that you can be and not just on a physical playing you know Gaius monetary success physical fitness all that stuff’s important but my goodness explore your energy side we when we say energy we save visualized as if it’s something you have to imagine energy is very real very tangible we think of air is nothing that says two people sit in front of each other we assume there’s nothing between us but empty space and yet if air is such a substantial force that it can move a 747 from one side of the world to another energy is just as substantial just as important and it’s time we stopped treating it as something we imagined or visualize and really start exploring it with ourselves with each other and seen what it can do seen what we are capable of as human beings and as a species it’s time to really reclaim our Birthright and all this other stuff we worry about how to change other people how to create this Global shift that will, sweet just start becoming what we were meant to be you know what the destiny thinking about set me free samples by Contra from the outside about it it’s daunting to think how complex the ancient life spiritual life path in life style was compared to what people have time to Connery data books or maybe maybe get initiated by someone from a lineage but maybe not but there are fundamentals for the simplest thing for example and I’m sure you’re thinking about it because it’s just talking about the Federal Energy and Aaron and what time if you think is if when people just do one thing quit and on one another’s heart just about to say that funky sexual position to get to get into sit in front of somebody you really love and respect just look at each other’s eyes really gave deeply into each other’s souls and put your right hand on each other’s hearts and just try that for 10 minutes and see what it feels like that’s as good a place to start as any you will be amazed
