Dancing with the Shadow vs. Light-Washing Dark Truths with Matthew Schultz TPP204

Play

Matt Shultz Pic

In this episode I’m joined by Matthew Schultz, a distinguished multi-media artist, musician and ceremonialist with a vast array of experience in both modern dark ambient experimental music and traditional shamanic ritual and ceremony.  I discovered his work recently via the Psychedelic Salon podcast episode 607 and realized we have a lot in common. On parallel paths, we’ve both been evolving from unguided musical shadow practice, to seeking shamanic ceremony, and integrating higher consciousness and vibration based on our sonic discoveries and revelations.

We get to learn about his unique and adventurous music career, his diverse shamanic initiations and his personal struggles with reconciling music, medicine, magic, and the archetype of the sacred trickster.

We also commiserate on the rampant plague of “spiritual-bypass” and “light-washing” which keeps many in the new age scene from confronting dark truths within themselves, their spiritual communities, and beyond. We discuss the need to integrate a shamanic perspective an astral ecology and develop a modern scientific framework to understand astral parasites.

He provides a much needed catharsis for those who have been tip-toeing on the egg-shells of spiritual correctness. It was an exquisite joy to be able to compare notes and share many deep healing laughs about the state of the world.  A moderate dose of cynicism is counter balanced by a heroic dose of divine love and light that is truly contrasted by a clear gaze  into the dark abyss. Ultimately we share great positivity, hope, and enthusiasm for an ever more enlightened future as old paradigms melt away and the psychedelic movement moves towards more of a “localvore” approach to cultivating and harvesting medicine species.

Com and our journey together will begin podcast episode number 204 I’m being joined by Matt Schultz and he is really a jack-of-all-trades and nygma and an Intrigue to me now discovering his work based on the 2nd of ixalan podcast and he was on a on an episode recently that I heard in a really it really piqued my interest because we have a lot of residents in common ground in the extreme and underground and experimental music scene he’s got work in the pig face send lab report and he’ll tell us all about his his music scoring and soundtracks and really being a doing his sort of wizard witchcraft Alchemy in that space and also evolving into a someone who is Shaman escorts Shaman assure someone work within that those ceremony around tonight in that I weren’t just want to make an extra note to say that I feel like they’re I know you know that being in the various different scenes and Circles of of Ceremonies that there’s there’s definitely a cohort that is kind of post music industry or sort of post kind of not maybe some rock stars but definitely lots of just different people who been in the underground in the extreme music genres who find their way to ceremony either through their own rehab and Recovery or true just now getting bored what’s happening on stage in the entire world is a lot of paths that lead to it but it’s beautiful always to see the transformation of one’s people get switched onto sacred frequencies and toning chakras and 432 and cymatics I mean that’s that was my Story 2 of of having aha moments about understanding music and in in sound healing and want to be part of more than the solution unless it the Prof of somatic we speak and say I can’t wait to hear all about you and your journey it sounds like we do have a lot in common and I and I hurt and I do I’ll put a link to that that episodes people can catch up on that too but but feel free to just tell us all about your your your Evolution musically and spiritually and we’ll go into some of the issues that are going to give us a funny show title and we’ll reveal that later that’s great thank you so much for having me on it really is an otter and just chatting with you beforehand it’s true it there’s this it’s nice finding a resonant frequencies amongst people you know and it would this would be great talking to you so thanks again thanks for having me on. Yeah it’s it’s interesting cuz it has been a long path man is been a long path and I would say most kind of go back to the beginning here I did a lot of experimental film work when I was really young and started doing it because I’ve been thinking about this a lot to bring us up together podcast I wasn’t interested in playing music as I was in creating tones and I didn’t even know this is a kid and I remember buying this guitar and I would tip is Kemah stats and I clip them on like the second string down and stay like the top thing was like no Daddy right and I would use my fingers in the end of the hemostat and then like kind of isolated so that I can add to take the string in a Perpetual drone you know and I was completely fascinated by this capability of just creating these drone Tonk Central Illinois in the country I had no idea you know this is a long time ago and said it was his idea that I wanted a creepy stones and I was completely unaware of why I want to do that right but I I put headphones on these just monolithic drone tones and now I’m looking back on it I really do think that was like this this had to be a thing where I was affecting like the root chakra is it could be that the second chakra I’m trying to do something depending on my bike tuning then you know and without even knowing what I was doing and I think of years later that led then to the construction of the antitank guitar and I built this large stringed instrument and it had 10 strings on a basically the six were the same spacing is guitar in the other four were is the same spacing is a bass guitar instrument was 8 ft long and had a bridge 5ft the bridge to bridge is 5 feet and you know I use 18 gauge like string wire you know to the crate tones with this tank and again I was more about creating two things one would be like the tone and then the other would be that I retrieve these atmospheres to again you know what that time I had my own kind of definition of what I was doing but now looking back on it it was really just steadfast Shadow practice you know I mean with the other two band members we were creating pretty horrific sound Fields Miss I would put it and that really struck me as I was capturing the the collective unconscious of American culture and it was listen to it back it would be just absolutely horrific you know so again and I don’t even mention his name of the podcast a lot of that shadow practice was a form of catharsis for me it was cathartic and I wanted to listen to kind of go like holy cow you too let’s move away from this again it was okay Oka right like the sacred clown you know what I’m talking about the Hellcat a sacred clown like a Lakota sacred clown it’s it you know I do things that you shouldn’t do or the opposite of what’s normal to tell you what is normal like don’t do this right so so anyway I kind of sick think some of that early a shadow practice was exactly that you know it was creating this just nightmare horse Cape that could express to The Listener we’re not to be you know in a in a strange way and mind you this way predates like any new age you know we’re talkin like 80s New Age movement was extremely small back then are virtually unheard up you know the whole thing about total therapy and chakra tones and stuff like this was just completely unheard of so again I think it was a lot very intuitive practice which we can talk about later to like getting into chaos magic in this kind of following your intuition so I did that and then Martin Atkins from pigface he was in a different band at the time uniform pick base and he came to me was sitting form in this project you want to be involved and of course I did they were industrial Roxbury Chicago you know we’re talking 90 now it’s very Chicago Industrial Rock Ministry was just really keep getting into before men and by 91 or two we put out the first bass records that went on tour with that and again I really wasn’t too interested in in I mean I like industrial music and stuff but I was really there to do kind of this sustained tonal in a 18 minute intro for the show and I always considered it like a magic spell that we’re putting on the audience so they are like I have Sheltie do that spell will have them build it up and then they would come out and do their spells right and so I did that for a while and then after that I started working with Bernard Rose who did the movie Candyman and he was doing some Independent films now we’re in the late 90s by this point again I’ve been putting out solo records this whole time and I started doing horror movie soundtracks for him I mean directly did snuff movie and some tracks on iTunes ecstasy it said it was fun and I think that was probably more the conclusion of that kind of style of music you know that formative years let’s say and give it a little break its mid-2000s now I’m starting to hear about sacred medicines and Ayahuasca and frequencies all the stuff starting to come to fruition or at least to me and let’s see by 2007 I started working with Lakota Elder in Southern Illinois and doing sweat lodges and learning to be a fire tender or being a fire tender and learning to pour lodges and I did that for years and then I hooked up with some Mayan elders and spent a couple years on and off in Guatemala and Mexico with the Mayan Elders learning from them doing Thomas Carl’s there and and then one day they’re like Hayward initiating you and it was the Frog medicine and that had to be panically the most intense experience I’ve ever had like I helped you might really made Ayahuasca look like marijuana to in my definition that was very potent and it wasn’t necessary the Frog medicine as much as it was the datura they use a lot of datura and I and again posthumously so to speak I found out through research on the back end really what was going on to some degree with their medicine practices and I started practicing with some Shaman so Iowa skero’s here in the states that were from Brazil travel the world with them walk the Camino ended up in Peru working at Ayahuasca Center outside of Iquitos and now I’m back and I pour sweat lodges and I’m writing a book that’s a cautionary tale about sacred medicine in indigenous practices so there you go that’s that’s the nutshell awesome so yeah I I love hearing about all this and just to give the listeners a visual I looked it up on Wikipedia The anti-tank guitar I believe I can imagine you named that because it looks like a missile launcher A and B that seriously the the low bass tones I would use the woven garage door cable like in your garage that makes the garage doors go up and down right so woven cable and I have these humbucker pickups you know I mean we would use that like we would tour and and we would have you bring I forgot what a writer at it was like what they faced it was something like whenever 618 dual subwoofers and we would marry that up to the house system and I just push everything of the house system up to theirs you know what I mean in the end if people didn’t you know like we get there to a show at the venue and a promoter do you like you know who this is common to we can give you what you wanted what you going to do not play you know it’s a lot of times I can hold you captive and I remember a sound guy would go like mad can you go up there and Sanchez sound check that atg just a straight electric guitar right but these subspecies low bass strings for subsonic I mean I can and so what I do is I would use this knurled rod and I would agitate the screen again all the way back to my childhood right I would add to take the string and it would sound like somebody had a Nebo you know that the vibrating magnetic vibrating device for guitar strings one of their tops and so they would throttle the PA and then every time they be like that you know that Michael could you hit the low in and I would slap that bottom string and it would just shut the Pas off everything else this is total true story First shows we did with it I believe Houston or Dallas where were the Butthole Surfers were from and we were opening up is when the only time we opened up her cuz we’re headlining act but we opened up for the Butthole Surfers and it was a sold-out show it’s been you five thousand people there and you know that they come to you to go to your introspect I feel like I mean this is one of the first live shows in front of thousands of people I’ve ever perform on stage and I might start my interest very high and I could have taken almost minutes before I get to these lohit beats right well it’s so loud that I can hear it on stage which you know it’s musician a lot of things you can only hear your amp early on stage kiss the Pas in front of you right it’s very hard for you to be absorbed in the Pas on cuz if you worry about getting back anyway right I remember that it was so loud that all the pedals of everybody’s effects on the floor of the stage we’re literally bouncing across the stage and I absolutely I just knew I was like man this is going to end up happy in Guelph and I hit that low strength and it shut down the entire PA I mean like and I are sound asleep hoping he was like that every single switch is just to shut it the whole thing off right they had to repower it up and the audience of course. She know cuz I’m building up this energy right and I’m starting a load going for these guys just Rising drone and it came back on it had to be like 1/3 the volume and yeah they say stuff some of the stuff I’m working on now is the idea of being completely engulfed in that sound you know yeah man things I want to talk about regarding your the music all the tech some of the technical musical stuff and then get into the the medicine work where I think is it it really there’s going to be a lot of fun fun stuff in there but I’m curious so you this is something that for me I didn’t discover this but it came basically like a modern tantric yoga Guru figure came into my life the way that Tyler Durden came into the life you know in that movie and it was very a very ballbusting authoritarian smash your Paradigm you know rubbing your face in your own shit kind of initiation with that type of personality but he was a classic like a very well-respected music industry equipment manufacturer like he was basically making old-school analog equipment because he believed so strongly that the digitization of all the music was really not only just bastardizing at a dumbing it down but actually like destroying the the safety the sacred healing properties and he discovered that by studying cymatics so when he showed me the same out of scope videos was years ago now that was became what what I wanted to start tuning everything to my voice my instruments you know and then straight going down at 4:30 to kind of conspiracy rabbit rabbit hole and I got to know yet what your story of 432 and cymatics how that has has played out for you if those things as if you had some some aha moment along the way where you you know I have that kind of initiation of Sonic vibration initiation if you owe rudimentary aspect of it you know they teach you in these these cuz I like cello bows and the ebo to generate Perpetual drone it’s right and but again this is before I knew all this stuff so to me in retrospect you know it’s too bad I didn’t know what I know now because those intros could be like they would be much more of a man a true magic spell in the sense of you know if I have all the notation you know if they are like it’s it’s the standard C D E F sharp GA chakra from root chakra all the way to the crown chakra right so you could cycle the people through which is what I do in my sweat lodges with singing bowls so unlike the Lakota my my Lodge is Multicultural so I bring some lakotas the Mayan some other stuff and my singing bowls and I’ll spin through those chakras in the sweat lodge and so to me that’s kind of like part of that that journey travel right for the for the participant are you going to just cleaning house in the way while also being in the lodge know when the cymatics came around and again I can’t even tell how long ago that was when I when I ran across that do you know of a Buchanan I just oh my god I think I’m going to have to double-check the name Buchanan yes sound healer that actually invented like a machine that can selectively locate you whatever your cancer and then he’ll find the appropriate frequency to destroy that cancers out of Reno Nevada right and so I’m sorry to Robert Buchanan yeah I had gone out to Reno with some friends to visit him cuz they knew him and he took us to his laboratory and I mean he literally wrote the book on cymatics and somatic sound healing right and he’s got a spa so they’re in Reno and he’s also a conductor of the orchestra that means a really fascinating man and he kind of these little things of water and then he was coming up with all the somatic shapes and stuff in this is the first time I’ve seen this and it was after very recently after my Mayan experience so you know I was so blown open from that experience that I when I came back from Guatemala I was making all these mandalas and what I was doing was kind of incorporating the actual visual cymatic quality of the sound wave depending on the notation into the mandala so that if you listen to the song This is the eventual goal this if you go to my mandalas project if you go to match.com you can go to the mandala then and that’s called like or you can go to the actual website the mandala event.com and what it is is it has the stomach that was that I made and songs that they wrote using binaural beats which is also another thing we can talk about but it also uses of cymatics so like for instance I have the chakras as a visual cymatic poster a graphic that I created right and then you can listen to that notation at the same time and to me that’s a meditative practice that drives it all the way home because you’re forcing the visual as well as those are all right well that’s what they want for their supposed to be what you want isn’t mantras together right yes cool man well that’s amazing so and then it’s for the people who are not aware of cymatics in the same a task open this whole science do you can you put it in into your words I don’t think I’ve ever mention that I may have mentioned before on the show but but it’d be great to have you kind of give it an intro overview on what that is how I know I’m not an expert on any of this the idea is that Whatever frequency that you’re broadcasting right it’s going to create a like I say if you put water down or sand on a metal plate that’s one device that they’ve created it’ll create a visual representation right of the sound wave and so to me it worked more with like the hidden messages of water that in Moto but you know this idea that like your language creates a frequency that the water is reciprocal can receive okay so this gets into magic than this whole idea of like Abracadabra write these ideas of magic so you’re creating frequencies that the liquid will literally take on a physical representation of that frequency right so that gets you back to what you were talking about what she was like before 3 to tuning is the correct tuning for health and Universal well-being as opposed to what I and I get I don’t even know what the other what tuning do we use nelacar western or 4:40 is the Nazi conspiracy tuning that we have to go research that’s exactly right why are we here now because of 440 tuning right there’s some great documentaries are some really funny kind of spooky ones to online on YouTube but it’s it’s pretty amazing what some of these Millennials are doing with with YouTube and and fair use kind of phone hacking Montage V yeah it’s amazing some of the stuff on 432 I’ll just blow your mind in that pattern is just a visual representation in a lot of times if you do look at these different mandalas they are a visual representation of that so I can’t it I don’t know I’m not a you know I’m not a professional in this I don’t know the history of this and that you can follow it like you were actually brought that up earlier you can follow this culturally back you know to through many different cultures right yeah that’s what I’ve been told is that it’s it’s basically natural organic instruments kind of default to these to be some intervals or this December standard and he will say it’s the residents of the Earth and space safely you’re tuning yourself to the to the Earth frequency in that when when when the baddies figured out that they could create disease and agitation and disruption on the cellular level than they basically they had an elaborate conspiracy that’s pretty historically you know that you can I don’t I don’t have all the facts memorized and there aren’t there is some debate obviously about some of the more conspiratorial aspects but it’s very interesting the actual the actual what is factually known about this process that was used that was kind of a ruse like a rigged election to vote on which should be the standard tuning and the characters behind some of that rigging or people that we would think there’s distasteful character is in the history of politics it thanks but it’s interesting that yes no I mean that completely makes sense to me that completely makes the most simple emotional level like I mean I think even Beyond you know the technicality of the 4:40 or the universe has the 432 Hertz tuning horror movie you know it it’s it’s causing that this evidence that it’s not the visuals that are so horrific as much as it is the sound design you know and it don’t spoil you learn that in in your sound production companies you know our class has him so I’d say if it’s the idea that you know there is this sharp stop right and it goes to something else so which way you can almost like I could give you the laghetti or penderecki score from The Shining you know it ain’t that goes like you know it’s that pluck that’s the condo that creates this like shift in your body it startles you you know I don’t see how I mean I think that does kind of support the 440 not to see if there is a bad tuning right yeah so yeah I totally see that you know that we interesting attitude knowing that you have this the background in creating the the horror movie soundtracks can we zoom in a little bit on that and sort of what that’s a sort of bitters at that’s a ceremony of you’re creating and you’re making that music and you’re feeling into the Vibes of you know the director or the storyline and what not what would you say and I think that is it’s important that we were that’s all lessons hopefully we watch these movies and we become better people after we watch them cuz we see oh my God I’m about like two more relationships away from acting like that guy who’s the new that I almost feel like if you don’t if you don’t express your Shadow and dance with your Shadow then then obviously we’ll run you unconsciously and so I think there is a important place for for owning and in respecting these film genres even in in not trying to demonize them as it were until you have played a role in in channeling and hopefully in the air with a sense of ultimately doing good or better and are helping helping Souls evolved dino by exposing the steps I’m just curious if you could talk about like what how that felt or how that feels see you when you still into those rounds in that energy and then you allow it to possess you to create tones and and scores and stuff like that so interesting well then you could you bring up bring up a great point because I’d have to say and I’m going to dress this first while it’s fresh in my memory I dissolve lab report because there was a social because I realize you had to be responsible and I think we were being irresponsible I really do that project was completely dissolved because I thought it was being taken in the wrong direction it was being worshiped and adored when it should have been repulsive and and horrifying the people and we would you know this is back in the day before the internet right and so we had you know what y’all near album you put out that you got signed a record it was old school right we got signed to a record label I mean the first record we put out was actually final you know and and then the second record again I had Genesis Breyer p-orridge on Lydia lunch and so you know there is some big names coming in and we were creating quite a a horrific sound and we would get fan mail it stopped and I would always respond to this but quite frankly I found most of it just utterly disturbing you know and to me like the Helga II again Timbaland so empowering in really meet people where they’re at and as I’m thinking like this him in hearing you speak I feel like the if I had to explain to somebody who never heard the word Tantra before and you’ll people ask me to clients and we’re not where should I begin and what should I read and certainly there’s I really enjoy Urban Tantra by Barbara carrellas and also the jewel in the Lotus and also the complete idiot’s guide to tantric sex this one ever had I’m waiting for this I’m waiting I’ve been waiting for something like this every time yeah I just praise here at your style and approach and I really think the what it brings together is it just these two words kind of came to me these two terms just like that the self-help genre and the self-help movement is something that is sort of its kind of made fun of or it’s not it’s not really taking totally seriously or it’s kind of like oh yeah you’re there something wrong with you and if you were normal you would you would not need to go that route so it’s kind of like a weird thing where you might you might lose respect for yourself even by questioning that or thinking what am I to you having a midlife crisis I don’t need that you know what is going on but then with Tantra it’s so there’s such a almost like a martial arts kind of level of self-mastery and self-discipline I really is the sort of Jedi training and I think you bring that you sent the size those two for me those two opportunities where it’s like yeah you you’re actually using courage and bravery and becoming a warrior but then you’re doing all this really touchy feely deep emotional work and that should that should take care of people’s hesitation to go either on a warrior path or on a more self-help spiritual path that gives you your compelling people to take both and for when men I think they they seek that out maybe they seek the warrior path more than the spiritual path but there’s I think there’s a lot of marketing and hype around that for men but this is really good tip for a loved one country women’s use the word Fierce and they invoke that that energy and they Empower femininity with with that those archetypes so could you talk maybe a bit about what that means to you the that just reconciling masculine or feminine Shiva Shakti really kind of bringing these tools of of strength and resolve and discipline to two women who may be of this been crushed by patriarchy you know for Generations oh yeah that’s a big question right there yeah and that’s I mean being crushed by Peter I came that’s definitely why I wrote the book and I actually why you were talking I just wanted to mention that I have a section on their on you know telling women to how to stop denying that masculine energy or also men love because I find that you know because you know a lot of the women I work with the idiot had just bad experiences with men or with times that they’ve stepped into their masculine energy and so they’ve just been very hurt by it and then they sort of backed away from it and you know I try to work with them on you know it’s about housing balance of Both Worlds and really understanding what the masculine is and also the ways in which masculine and men have been disempowered you know and really starting to take ownership of that you notice a lot of times women are like you know when I start bringing in the masculine they’re like okay I know I bet that’s like to heavy like that kind of energy that they don’t want to work with that energy and they don’t want to explore that energy and so I say okay you know there’s there’s no pressure and there’s no rush cuz you got to do what feels right to you and a lot of time they seem. Just by like stepping in to do that feminine energy because it is fierce right it is courageous it is powerful like you said there is not Warrior quality to it I’m still by simply die do something like this to summon and energy you actually calling up you know those masculine aspect you’re calling up that strength that where your strength at the same time without really realizing it so unconsciously and and you’re bringing those forces them to bounce and I’ve seen that a lot of times with women that I’ve worked but I’m really like surprised at how the feminine wild like this actually you know it’s soft there is softness in the feminine but as you claim it and as you’re able to fearlessly stick with that and embrace set and embodying it naturally you know.. Here’s mess. Power starts to rise time to help stabilize their energy and so it’s pretty much really a magical thing it’s pretty amazing and so I have this part in my book about you know how to really heal yourself from what you thought maybe you know how house Gary masculine energy might be some time I’m sure there are practices that really going to that and yeah and then that’s really a big part of my work to because a man I mean we are in need of some major balance here on this planet and in this life in this world so I really feel the more that we can Embrace anybody and I’m leaning into the feminine that is rising right now in the more we can scan with that the more that we can make space for on the masculine to heal and balance and a bike ride but like Reno really hot like it in excess right but Valance in such a way that it kind of comes down to meet the famine in so that this beautiful kind of dance can emerge Amor Harmony and that would just make such a huge total impact and we just within the body the container of one individual body being able to fuse and merge those energies so powerful yeah I’m really is why I do what I do awesome yeah I can say from experience from the first couple of experiences and session work that I experienced with you then I really got I was able to feel the force so you know that if we’re going to be using that Jenna archetype you know in in there if you want to call Kundalini Shakti goddess energy which is I love calling I love I love hearing of Kundalini as a salmon in force and you were the one who activated that for me and it was just very unusual yeah I remember like it was yesterday and so I appreciate it in you you can get really philosophical and really theoretical but grounding everything into practices to make it as a workbook almost it sounds like this is amazing so you and it’s something that has to be felt in the body to really know what it is yeah it’s hard it’s hard to find words nothing will thank you for all that great work do you feel kind of complete as in that in this kind of brief introduction but but pretty I think it’s a pretty good overview I definitely thrilled to to go deeper with it and others will be as well so I wanted to give the bulk of this episode to this important news of promoting and getting the word out about the book and then but also address questions that I’ve had as a sort of I’ve become a sort of meta Godparent to a lot of different mothers who were rebranding as independent mothers who are in various stages of Court battles with baby daddies for custody and for child support and and I’ve just checking on this sort of I decided I’m not going to reproduce biologically all of my vasectomy but I will reproduce culturally by my being short playing that that more of a Shimano roll in peace and also keeping a little bit of distance from that that this is a an ancient sword of time tree thing of if you are not to be the guru per se but to be an Adept you may have to disengage from householding because there’s just so much mundane kind of learning and things you got to sit through so your country path is always going to be kind of a balancing act between how much of a household are you going to be and what roles are going to have within a community and then how far out you get to go on your own into your mystical practices so I have taken that past of offsetting my my familial obligations a bit so that I could study things from afar and then just go to be this force of will hopefully an Angelic sort of force supporting women who are in different degrees of Crisis that’s just a little bit of a of a context for why it’s important for me now to reconnect with you in a n n learn from you and share your teachings about Tantra parenting the pattern that has been emerging in the question is being asked of me and the view is is how does a woman who has just recently given birth and going through all these different chemical changes and hormonal changes how do you what’s the advice on keeping that spark of love and attraction alive with the baby daddy partner what are some some tricks and tips that you would recommend for for that really critical bonding you know six segments of Life first of all I’m not going to lie. I think the first thing to do is I mean really too kind of except that it’s not going to be the same but. It’s actually you know like I said with you know what having kids how you’re able to look at the things that really matter to you that was so when you actually are with your partner and you have those moments you know they might be less but we are going to be amazing because you are fully present and you’re showing up each moment you know and the end of a lot of for me it’s like when I first became a mom so I had my first son and it was really hard I was just like what cuz I was Dino stole so focused on your child and really wanted to be there to nurture that I and you are you know you’re you’re so deep into it into motherhood and it’s so new everything is so new and exciting and exhausting but I am in a few months I was just like oh my gosh like how how does this work how do we make this work and it was really really difficult very difficult but I found that by you know because I’ve had my kids almost 8 years now until I found that really what we eat sometimes you know if if we need to say like make an appointment with each other and that’s what we have to do if we have to put it on the calendar they okay these are the the two or the three days a week that were scheduling for ourselves for intimacy for connection then that’s we’re going to do that first there was a struggle because my husband’s like okay this isn’t sexy yo after he got over that initial thing it was like okay like we can do this we can make time for this we can we can be intentional about it for us really had to do that because not only was it you know hard navigating with kids now but also the work you know work in the balance of that it was just really tough so that was one of the things that we did the other thing that I want to say is that sometimes you know you you have good intentions but I got at the end of the day you’re exhausted and and then you just end up wanting to just sit there and whatever you want to do watch TV or you know just go to bed until I always like to say that really if you really want to keep that sparked going not to give up just because you feel like okay you know I don’t have that energy right now or I don’t have the time to put into this right now to really see and used Contra in a way that it’s really meant to be experienced right because Todd’s are really isn’t just all about sex right and having that fat set spark Tundra is it much deeper than that and so sometimes you have to tell yourself like okay even though we don’t have time to make love right now maybe maybe it’s just about lying down next to each other synchronizing out of breath making that I contact I’m falling asleep to that I’m letting that be enough you know before you know this night or this week or whatever it is like in the beginning it’s not to really put so much pressure on yourself but to use Simple practice is like you know that you have your own position and just sitting there together and being or maybe you know it’s one night you really need a massage right now you know I really just after having a long day or a long week and be with the kids so much that’s what I really need so communicating that to your partner and really staying in touch with that and not being embarrassed or not feeling like it’s too much or too much of a burden or whatever it is just really being clear about what you deeply need I’m in a lot of that comes down to really checking in you know with yourself all the time and seeing what’s there I really feel like things like that even though you know you might be cuz it’s also self-care right so you’re able to connect with your partner in that way and then you’re also able to have that time must be nurtured and a slowing down which is also key so I think everyone is going to work differently and it’s going to be unique for all of us but it’s really about finding those opportunities to stay consistent to really stay connected in those small tangible ways and mlc really accepting that it’s okay that you know your relationship has changed the amount of time might be able to have to devote to one another Soul has changed I’m not true but you can actually take all that and evolve it into something in a lot of cases that really goes much deeper than that you know because now it’s it’s amazing you know you have this this connection and you know going through motherhood and Emma strikes that that gives you time to actually be able to take that foundation and that strength and that those nurturing abilities and that expression being able to use that with your partner in your relationship I’m having that Foundation really can make me very powerful in a way that’s unexpected just as amazing as you always bring it back to the fundamentals of the practices this is not all hot air to talk about it tell about doing it doing the work and I just feel like it makes me think that I can think of I mean I know some couples will have the foresight to at least make prenuptial agreement but I can’t think of anyone who they actually said we are going to go through the most insane trans transformation of everything we know we can if its first time parents who have no clue what to expect and they and what if they were to get these to be the eye of a storm throughout anyting that’s the Abbey unless Ty gazing the synchronized breathing you can’t touch that space with anything so but but pure Bliss and whatever does need to get work through if it’s done in that space it’s going to be conscious it’s going to be a constructive and it’s going to be a firming so I feel like it’s the what I’m hearing you say and what diarrhea firm is two people listening if you were expecting and you want to keep this container of love together and ever strengthening then start doing his practices now and know that you’re going to really rely on them it’s going to be life-and-death okay we’re just going there so I can breed all right like can’t we just do that let’s just do that next week or let’s just all of that I mean once you start doing it and engaging and you feel that present in your body and the Net Connection you have to just trust that all of that and all of that adds up and all of that makes a difference in your relationship every moment of that that time that you have on to be able to connect in that way as powerful well thank you again for bringing it back to to those core practices again you could have a lot of compliments sure there’s a million complicated bits of advice that people could give for this but this is so practical and and I just I dare people could really do it in and I don’t think you can fail you know I don’t think it’s possible to fail if you have good intentions and you do the scratches so yeah so we were getting also to your kind of making a perfect segue to the next question which is more more about the the asymmetry of responsibility and Duty specially for breastfeeding mothers and mothers to be carried to full-term and whatnot it’s it’s like there’s such a the mail investment just as how I always make this joke there probably less violence in the world is men had to breastfeed but women actually held the babies in their room still so imagine that you wouldn’t be off to go into war and using weapons and guns and swords that she had breastfeeding on demand for whatever after 5 years income that would be great that leaves man with such an unfair and balance of freedom and privilege to not be bound to the those tasks so a lot of women are rightfully lamenting this sensitive of the men who are supposed to be there showing up to with the with the mother is hoping for is that yeah he’s going to go to work and put food on the table and make it so I don’t have to work hopefully or I can work you know in a way that I can still be involved in my children’s lives you know for God’s sake you know who something something not just not just the short maternity leave remind me that the CEO of YouTube is a yogini who is Hardcore advocate for way longer maternity leave or something yeah I didn’t know that I’ll send you a link to a video where it where you get to see that she’s actually really badass them she’s a fierce that ass woman who’s awake I have no idea how did you navigate and how do you recommend for women who maybe don’t have is as blessed of a of a beloved Fixer-Upper type type men how do you get them on board with really going the extra mile of of checking in about about the needs a mother you know mother would have if she is being assertive about her knees in about the new suicide where she would like how can you be humbled to her and just be asking and showing up to being serviced that’s a question that’s a really great question and I have to say that I’m really fortunate with Eric because he I mean he has just him and he is just been a tremendous support from the beginning but then at the same time it’s like I also have to do my part with him right of being very clear about I need you no because then it that this always with him you know in the beginning of special rub up against this when he just wouldn’t know you know and I would be just waiting silently expecting something but he wouldn’t really know that that was what exactly I was looking for right because for women it’s like having that ability to breastfeed and nurture and carry this baby. Room I mean just how we have those abilities so readily at hand and we know what we need sometimes it’s hard to say yeah I need this actually it sometimes it’s hard because where we can be so strong you know and we can put off the 15 so strong and like we have everything together and I know that I do that a lot of time where I’m just like yep I’m good I don’t need help I look what I’m doing all by myself I’m doing all these amazing but that really inside I’m like oh my gosh like what am I I can’t do all this by myself and just allowing your partner that opportunity like okay like this is really what I need and this is the support that I need and this is how I feel going through that and not being afraid to say I am overwhelmed right now you know and and can you please and saying this from a place of love right not from a place that judgment and like what are you doing for me and you know resenting that you know you have more freedom than me and Bubba blah and I’m here breastfeeding or whatever it is not doing it from that place but from you know from your center from a place of love like I’m I’m really overwhelmed I need help with this right now you know can you get up be up with a baby now for two hours because I only had 3 hours of sleep last night instead of just silently you know doing in that moment when you feel I mean I I just I know a lot of of moms and a lot of friends who dust will just be like okay well he didn’t you know my partner my spouse he didn’t step up and so I had to do it and then my will but did you say something and they’re like no or maybe they did say something but you know it wasn’t from that place you know of just clear intentional loving vulnerable until. I think that was one of the biggest things for me especially you know when our relationship I’m like okay and then you know my husband tries to tell me like he’s Eichler like he’s like really I want to be able to show up for you like I want to be strong for you I want you to feel good but he’s like I honestly don’t I just need to to hear it I just sometimes I need to be told or I need to be reminded because it doesn’t come as naturally to me and then show me be mindful of that and not you know not falling to being hurtful or resentful something makes me cute different do you know well that’s really really profound that that really gets to the hardest exactly what I’m seeing go wrong inside once at once that slippery slope really hard I mean it’s kids once this thing start to add up then breaking through that you’re really. It’s really snowballing and that’s your thing everything is this Noble thing I’ve seen it yet so that is great advice I think that work that I said the fly to something if x is kind of ridiculous that it reminds me of I remember seeing young young women and whatever middle school or high school and home home economics class and they will be given an assignment to have a baby doll with them for whatever and in that relationship it’s like okay honey we’re going to do what it’s going to feel like for me to be busy and need help from you and you put in your garden that would be funny if it decided to give people that sensitivity at sensitivity training cuz once it’s already ratchet up and then more expenses than what I’m seeing to notice let me know way more than I do but it’s like I don’t think I think people underestimate the cost of of multiple visits to the pediatrician a week you know it’s like figuring out food allergies and decoding the sugar all of the ways that sugar is is is surreptitiously inserted into packaged food and just it’s such a pill battle to be holistic and to be in at all so it’s just this this is all in on top of just I mean most people are just buying everything off the shelf from entertainment to toys to food to diapers and whatever it is it’s all just off the shelf but to have that effect of wanting to do better than the last Generations or to resist the marketing and be more green or whatever that’s a whole another layer of the building so you know it’s just to get more and more complicated and at the end of the day I see the women just getting ran ragged and the dudes just kind of blowing him off sadly to say but if we could he had say that actually kind of Segways a bit to another question which is and this I mean you could you could write a whole book just on this subject alone out so I don’t expect you to to go too far into it but maybe just some off the top of your head pointers and we can move along quick to know we’re getting close on time so so any suggestions for creative and educational and non-toxic toys just a few maybe went to one website or one store just don’t know anything I don’t know if I’d be the best person to ask about that because I not that they have a choice in general just because you know like all the plastic and everything I mean and we like literally their toys are like one corner of our house like a couple of containers and that’s it and they barely even play them to be honest with you I feel like the simpler the better you know I feel like I’m all about like art you know art projects you know the pain and the crayons and all the art supplies and things like that so that they can enhance their minds and use their hands that way and explore that way they’re into that but I found that you know the purchases that I made with toys throughout the years it’s like that use it and then they’re done and that’s like a big hunk of plastic sitting there are biodegradable and Wooden Spoons and then they’d be busy for 2 or 3 hours you know that they have gotten that I get them they’re like okay and then they open it and then they look at it for 10 minutes and then I end up you know it’s just a way so yes so we do more we like to do more stuff you know in nature I mean they like to play you know what they say they love gospel they love being outdoors they love Ari and they love puzzles and things like that so that’s why I hope that I hope and pray that we will all have abundant opportunities to being healthy natural environments and have plenty of more outdoor time the better cuz there’s some nature is like endless you know just being outside they’re like so fascinated by every little thing the backyard I don’t know it exactly how I like how did the people survived all of those many years ago without these big pieces of plastic and well that is exactly what I thought I hope to hear in and a very firm it if so this is another test of the last one here is probably the the most kind of universal so I don’t know if there is an answer to this question however I died would like to spend I would like to spend my golden years doing a lot more anthropological research on on foraging sigala Terry and societies before you spell hunter-gatherer societies who have basically none of the the neurotic issues that people in the modern world have and and I love to know I would like to believe that there is that there was a golden age of human Innocents where the terrible twos didn’t exist and then that we could decode that and figure out what is it more nurturing Less Talk toxins I mean is it just that there’s so much overstimulation and so many maybe you’re actually able to perceive carcinogens at that age and then you stopped being able to and that’s why I mean it could be anything less or I could just sent them know something very out of balance that’s just modern so I’m just wondering if you have if you were really idealistic about know I’m going to teach there going to be a master Yogi’s by the age of one so that the terrible twos happen though I already beat exam enough I don’t know why you if you were like I don’t know like tell me what that’s been like for you and then if you have advice for people who are in that approaching that Horizon will for me I really I really just try to go with the flow you know just so I’ll talk to style just like accepting every part of it I was just part of the the beautiful messy process of development and growth and exploration and sometimes I do know because otherwise then it’s just become so hard you know what I’m saying because you expect it is you’re going to have meltdowns right it’s not it’s not going to be easy is there at like going to be some very tough days especially in the beginning if it’s going to be hard you feel like what what am I what did I get myself into one of my hairdo evaporate the next moment you know you’re going to feel the most joy and Bliss and happiness that you ever felt like wow that’s amazing that I get to be a part of this process you know that I get to witness this human being growing and developing and it’s it’s just amazing so it’s really you know you know the whole ton truck idea of a flowing through those energy that accepting every moment no matter how chaotic and allowing those emotions and those feelings and those moments to move to you during this challenging time to witness in you know children and young children because it’s like they can like be so happy in one moment and literally within five seconds that can beat me on the floor it’s crazy right it’s like oh my gosh the wide array of emotions from moment to moment and not inhibit that till I I feel like you know it’s like wow for me initially seen that in the beginning and fidget with night was my first one and that you can just move so fluidly like this and just just like that and get so consumed by something else in another moment we just amazing to me so I think we can really take a lot of sign a lot of lessons and just being present at something to a Full Circle closed right now because what I am even before you started to reply that lesson for grown-ups really about about cycling through your full expression and not choking your body is response to a situation out and the full the full body response to a situation I was actually remember me on my phone while I remember a room full of adults it you and Eric’s condo and we were being instructed to behave like children having a tantrum so that we can feel good and actually know the nice that storm there’s like the sun and the blue sky and in the EXO baekhyun the funny faces and doing the monster dance and some just like well you’re probably realizing hits are the times of the exactly yeah it’s it’s pretty amazing to witness is there a word for like reverse parenting or something has got to be a word for the the the from children actually teaching adults what they’re forgetting and I didn’t mean well that’s really it’s a really heartwarming conversation and I feel like the people who are hearing this and who have experienced so much pain and distress that there is such a open source free to use to spend your own time studying it get this book read the book watch Roadies videos I certainly considered to be the highest resource that I like to share with folks because of the same reason they listen before adjusters I don’t feel like there is a knot a snake-oil aspect of what you’re selling and there’s not a sort of a shady ulterior motive saying a gender that I have to worry about and and I just can’t say that about that many people until I’m sure you know and I certainly feel for myself that you know I have I always want to be deferring is often as possible to sort of protect my Integrity to not be the what do they call it like the god cock Shaman is just a narcissistic people’s souls and that’s easy enough to it’s easier to take that route of that that black timeshare manipulate manipulate almost hard not to do it so I mean I’m making and I feel like we are making major effort cuz that’s the complete opposite of what you are and what you and body I mean from the very beginning so yeah no thank you I really feel like you are just I mean somebody who’s just really in there doing that you’re like doing the work you know and you like do it like with an open heart you’re just like in there and you’re talking to everybody and just creating this just really amazing platform. You should be really proud of well thank you again and again I have to say you helped start at all and one of my the first real social proof that I had was that was your gracious licensing of me to share some of the video work that we did together it’s been a blessing that go into detail but all that in that in that previous episode supposed to listen of that and I will say that we we were blessed and burden in this in this time of this episode to take to cover a good intro to the book and also to open this discussion about time to Parenting I definitely want to set the intention that in the future we will give more of a of a deep dive into your personal background and it sort of will let that be a cliffhanger to hear about your experiences early introduction of Tantra and just kind of the got your path of building that confidence and certainly the form give experience Syfy oh my God it all yeah we haven’t got into your filmography either still be there next time to say this for next time to talk about birth because yes I mean not as deep and my experience naturally delivering and doing it with Tantra as my Foundation is the only way that I said I survived it and actually enjoyed it. Arrington have the complete box set free thank you so much thank you so much for having me it was really great and most richest time in in a moment to to share this Basin and certainly yeah it’s it’s a got it just give you a big big bow down because this you were the one who helped me start this this whole journey I don’t know I don’t know who I’d be or where I’d be doing it if we didn’t have a Meeting of Minds you know so yeah I can’t believe I forgot to say this I mean you were seriously you were the first one who discovered my website you were the first one who reached out to me and one of the first that I’ve actually I will say the first that I taught that I didn’t know because I had started already like teaching but like you know friends and friends of friends but you were the first clean one like the first student I was like oh wow yeah that that walked in and like was the beginning of really that Journey so thank you I did not know that I did not realize that that that’s funny so funny I can’t believe I never told you that that’s very well so everybody just like get over your awkwardness and just represent just like bring your egg and no matter what things will come out you know it’ll all fall in place to get back to the Sam and yeah I give them my love and thank them for allowing you to to do the book and for all of the people who parted the sea so that you could get that book done and then provide provide that to us and so much more thank you I know it I just want to say thank you so much for Amy what you just what you spoke about earlier just blew me away how you been stepping up to support women and you know what your mother’s I mean you are really holding for me to space there and this is really something that you know I know that would indeed and you know a lot of them have been longing for so thank you so much for for being that person and for filling that role cuz it’s just amazing the work that you’ve been doing all these years I thank you you planning to see each other that they were they say that it’s the fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree at least in the sense of the guru to train me to be a womanizing pick up artist in the name of conscience so I guess that’s why we you know gravitated toward each other There Was You know. The little like energy so I think I don’t think you would have found that path that was not your will thank you so much again yeah so much so much good vibes and good times and we will be in touch soon and and best of luck with all of your your your book emotional adventurous okay great thank you so much fun.

Com and our journey together will begin hello dear beloved is welcome to Township Funk podcast episode number 100 I am on Skype with Rak razam my dear brother in arms in the shamanic Revolution and yeah we did we did in a perfect world podcast racks podcast episode number 100 at Venice Beach under a Terence McKenna mural that we happened upon and at that point we really opened up a sort of mutual Treatise on this projected future of a perfect world than that’s already we’re already in it we just need to sort of wake up to it and enjoy it really that was a lot of it and also just getting into the how we’re weaving in the science of psychedelic research with shamanic esoteric ancient wisdom and how to really bring and merge sort of hacking The Matrix with all this medicine work and now that it’s my episode 100 I wanted to have wrecked I want to have you back and have us catch up and have you open up with the everything you’ve been achieving and then we’ll get into some deep Next Level and tactics for the for this chapter of the shamanic Revolution so with that said brother please I’ve been good in general I think you’ve been it’s it’s a pleasure to be on your show again and happy 100th episode it was saying all fair that it is it is an amazing accomplishment you know it said to be engaging with the community on an ongoing basis and to be releasing conversations like these and helping seeds different Minds with different ideas you know I think it’s part of the circuitry of adjust the global so many cool wakening but this whole new paradigm that seems to be sprouting from the the debris of the old world as it crumbles all around us and so these are the times and we are the ones and yes yes this is this is this is very interesting is in what is it is it is it is and it is more than us as well you know just just just the other weekend when I had a bit of a romantic encounter one of the interesting things that happened is like you know I feel like in so many ways we will we still we still hooked up on the ego then we still hooked up on sense of identity and an individualism and it just struck me I had to sort of Consciousness shift and it was almost as if you know the cause justness of a larger Consciousness either the world Consciousness or just I don’t know of any larger Consciousness is almost phasing in and viewing the experience of the world through my Consciousness and then I could almost feel how you couldn’t shift to the person next to me is consciousness or trees Consciousness oh yeah like I guess it’s like what is it it is essentially life itself which is is opening up and is is is witnessing and embodying and experiencing this miracle of creation and of life itself through the vessels that it has grown for itself and the thing is I think we’re getting to the stage if we can even have this conversation about intellectual leave that concept that it starts to be you know the first outer envelope all been buddying that concept which means all right so you know if you can imagine it then it can become real and essentially that’s all lyrics about what imagination really is and how you use that to sort of kava the probability fields of reality and it’s always been like that but it was starting to get these to the non-jews died or Unity Consciousness or transpersonal city names are on the rise but essentially imagine that we’re not just what we think we are and then what it is is is source is the originating medium of existence which is a real euphemism for God and I know but it’s west of of of of a life discovery of up to recognize we might say who will we what are we what is our purpose in life and in reality we’re still anchoring you know the same question biller and Karine vanasse selves and I think the answer to what we are and you know that ass that was saying is we are rich but then what is it as you say and it’s like what it what is it up to is it doing how do we see this point mutation of Consciousness itself you know in in Alex’s tenses and the existence of a species and the existence of life itself on us and for me that that’s that’s the big question is not what isn’t it right though the ancient wisdom Zelda ancient questions are coming full circle what as as were exploring the semantics I’m just having beautiful flashbacks from episode 1 of shamans of the global village where I think the I think this is now my all-time favorite cinematic device was with when you were profiling the participants of the ceremony and their you’re getting a glimpse of them getting ready to take their hit and then you flash to their most extreme moment of doubt in total rapturous ecstasy and that’s it isn’t it being sort of blown you know it’s like a cartoon character with the smoke coming out of the year is and eyes bulging just absolute to the global village. Call me when you can find it at with Niles Heckman who is the director in my partner on that and he’s the one that sang for that you know beautiful Flash Forward into the splicing and nonlinear Arrangement as he say we we took a group of Weston has to Tiburon Island to shock Islands on the West Coast of Mexico where we will have your writing a Mexican originally GPA and now it’s too many to Sylacauga who works with the the Sonoran Desert Toad the bufo alvarius incilius which is incredibly powerful basically they’re the tub contains both prefer to name and 5 Meo DMT in high concentrations and when smoke and added to your own endogenous tryptamines including 5-mer produced is essentially a non-jew state or Unity State scuse me of them complete the obliterate of individuality into into the oceanic and Incredibly loving vibration of all that is and it’s it’s just incredibly transformative an end essentially what music throughout history have been calling that white light tunnel experience so that Unity Consciousness experience and Niles was very astute and brake lever in the way he portrayed some of the participants some sacred ceremony when did the real catches and funnily enough is a media maker I have all people have filmed a lot of my Journeys over the years pretty much do that exciting I’ve been in some loose talks with somebody I will make his wanting to do in Iowa vs everybody and I’m like in the locker and you get The Descent of ceremony and the shaman you know steering the ceremony but I had so Dak and be everyone’s just sitting there and pillaging you know I like it’s the same with 5 Meo with the toad potentially with most of the chamonix Ackerman season medicines which have a deep and profound spiritual connection and healing on the inside but on the outside when you feel nice things you just getting the flesh Bonnie and then when people say it you know what that’s okay Bo has quite a few videos on YouTube and it’s a bit of a catch-22 because he really wants to promote his work and help people and I share this with the world or what he’s doing but you know it creates a bit of a discrepancy in a dissonance because people can just log on with that any sense of context or ritual themselves and you just log on and see if Facebook video or YouTube video someone going through this experience it just looks like they’re they’re going through tolcher all day going through screaming or catharsis you said it just before it sinks tosses and this is really part of the casing out culture Western Global Western culture which is global culture nowadays as soon as I said it was taking over the world does not have a relationship on mess with spiritual practices obviously there’s lots of spiritual coaches and spiritual practices are on the increase still but I guess you know capitalist consumer everyday culture doesn’t have a relationship with spirit and in specially does not have a relationship with extensions which is the Greek word for ecstasy and in that what they mean it’s the Ecstasy of connecting with the Divine and this isn’t something we necessarily need an external Catalyst to accomplish this is something which is both. Both right and Al biological and neurological imperative you know what I’ve been doing a little work with another side project the Terra incognita project Terra being the Latin Woods it’s the TV off looking at you know the Neuroscience behind trip to Maine States and especially 5-meo and unity Consciousness and you know essentially we have this functionality within us and when we are in Optima configurations is human beings when we leaving in right relationship with yours without house with the other medicines of food with the medicines of our energy when we’re away from emfs and older sort of distractions and obfuscations and pollutions of 21st century living we can be sensitive enough to the energy and the the call of the planet and a spirit itself and on those deeper levels if you sort of pump that muscle if you if you work with the endogenous tryptamine sitter renewal yo yo wait where you can have this full-blown mystical experience which is not something just to become modified or treated as separate from s elves DC that there you know what all the spiritual traditions in the religious Traditions originally on the students to promote to add a great misunderstanding the God is within and the dino the Divine Essence as well sign before what is it we are Divine beings having a human experience and Al bodies are temples to both hold Consciousness but to hold the Divine and it when you think about that when you actually put in the horse in front of the car this is a message if all of history has been the wrong way round it’s like we think we’re individuals and I think with a physical bodies when in fact with a Spiritual Beings and when women say that what does that mean it means that from my understandings of mine on juul experiences with Dave sauce it said they go see any incredibly loving and not loving like your aunt doting on you or even well sort of like your mother loving you but lately if you could if you could imagine if you could reach her feet and explode woodlouse and answers transpose that on to being in the heart of the sun and the intense Atomic vibratory explosive power of what love really is as a vibration and then how that disseminates will radiates from Deep Source through the other astral of ecological levels to I almost like you know deep sources like this Oceanic experience is like the individual Consciousness in the ego at Consciousness which thinks it’s an individual it falls away whatever the psychic and actually the the scientific reasoning for this at the moment is that does default mode Network clustering areas of the brain which are involved in the sense of ego and identity and basically create a filter between us and the lodger off switch is welded Lodge mind at large and sorcerer Lodge and they they give us these Regional ability to function on The Trestle level and in doing that they crazy go constructs which help us navigate the complexity of information overload of what reality really is down here but in doing that as well like desensitize off to a true spiritual Neches because so much of the meditation practices and different coaches you know they they teach egolessness or the whole almost a cocktail a sort of movement you know which is great because there’s all these different mainstream sudden movements which are really getting involved in reducing the sense of ego just like psychedelics an empty gyms in the shamanic medicine and then what do they reveal it like they do nothing really but that science is really studied it and I’ve seen the wind the default mode network is Switched Off and this can happen with Buy psychedelics in shamanic medicine the medicine some cells are necessarily having the psychedelico that you know is it that that transpersonal essay switching off the areas of the brain with your inhibiting our relationship with the the interdimensional energetic Cosmos which is all around us and you know it’s true that LSD for instance is metabolized for the body was in about 19 minutes but the actual psychedelic Effect season usually felt in the in the Consciousness till about half an hour or so we know that we’re opening up at Consciousness and a bean and weary sensitizing and so disability for us to have this experience and to connect to a larger aspect of our selves it’s almost as if deep sauce is like deep ocean and then you got these shamanic sort of Astral ecologies and levels where you know there’s a multiplicity of states of being and potentially other entities and other beings and bodied and embedded within a Viber tree levels of existence and then you have the the matter world and the material existence we see all around now there’s an unbroken Continuum of arbitrary energy which you know is all of those levels of existence and everything is vibration at different levels of existence and so when you get too deep sauce it is this incredible of arbitrary atomic explosion of love and love is almost not a big enough word to to do a Justice because it’s the hot and you’re you are not that you were in the heart of the star you are the heart of a star and it it’s it’s unconditional love it’s a vibration is the Primal all my guess which different Buddhists in cultures that have ascribed to see what I’m getting at is what away on what it what is it it’s one in the same but the more and more the way sensitize and we let go of the ego that Divine potential is is Hobbit within the vessel the temples of our bodies and I think you know I’m just coming so much of even the shamanic movement of psychedelic movement the spiritual movements it can be really focused on the idea of Liberation or they said they were you know and it’s a skating be on but it’s almost looking at the wrong way around because it’s almost as if all we have to do is open the space within us for it to come through it’s not that we have to do something it’s it we almost have to not do something we just have to let go of this illusion of control this egoic sense of controlling everything and and so now it seems like so much of all these movements are actually you know gearing towards you can let go of control you can do the CNN still somehow we going but it’s a relationship what I’ve discovered that we have with with sauce Consciousness with inner animal relationship everyone awakens at the right time in their own time and you can’t you can’t rush it and Yukon faucet and you cancel the cross paths in a y Sousa people that have Mountain meditation people to join to Tantra people that have joined a shamanic exploration you know the same Central sauce and people will find their own expression of Awakening I guess I I feel that you have from really stood out as as a representative of the toad medicine and it actually could help bridge a lot of gaps in my 4-1 the the idea of encountering demons or Shadow biosphere parasites astral parasites all those fears and worries and anxieties that people would have with pretty much any other tryptamine for sure it sounds like the the toad medicine experience just bypasses all of those lower levels of being and you just go straight into the light into the unified Brahma and you know the truth unisex ultimate Supreme personality of the godhead undifferentiated into any any personalities or any any gendered personalities gods goddesses demigods deities demons you know whatever it’s all you just kind of bypass that which gives it a sort of um I guess a new appeal I mean Terence McKenna was all really I think if he can I think it was his wet dream if you could have had one day to hold a magic wand he would have you know not course if not in the course of way but just given the opportunity for everybody to smoke in in GMT right and that could have that could be disastrous because people keep get freaked out because they might encounter stuff that’s attached to them like go through the Bardo and not have their wits about them and be traumatized if not worse but this is a miracle if there is an experience of that level of extreme Revelation you know in a 5-10 minutes. It’s that pretty much bypasses that that potential I guess Hard Sell for the masses right and I’m not able to don’t you know there’s no spiritual bypassing thing is God bless you know st. Terrence of course so much of the American architecture of all these conversations and it’s almost like the house that we all inhabit was really the subdivided all the foundation’s what it was built by Terrence speaking through he’s on lens so he didn’t you know pretty much you know introduce DMT to the masses in in in a very tangible way it was also one of the early should have trouble guidance of Ayahuasca when it really wasn’t that well known in the early to mid 90s and at that time between you know the 60s culture the 90s could’ve Raves psychedelic Resurgence cultural and what we have now and you know Terrence it’s it it’s a very deep responsibility to be talking about this subject so I take it very carefully and what I say and and is he can really become a missile missile mythologizing you know a lot of stuff you can be very difficult to talk about these things and I know I’m guilty of this I’ve made a documentary about the Sonoran Desert toad but I also work with the name Gio Lockwood scientists and practitioners and I’ve seen a lot more depth to it that you know when we create media room we have these conversations it’s still only one facet of it so I try to have as many facets in this conversation as I can and I think just it to come around what’s a Terrance really did an amazing job of creating awareness around these modalities in or around the fact that there were these shamanic sacraments and he helped both will see do you know this how many coaches in the morning so many coach we’ve got now but you know what generation of the tenants at Aaron’s now we’ve got like almost the Flipside in a lot of culturally trees around the the best of that culture so you know as much as said I was curious as incredibly obscure South American Plant now they loved his old South America that is you know practitioners in communities all around the world is Ayahuasca churches you know the end is really pronounce tissues around the commodification of Ayahuasca renew reabsorption of into the Western culture which is sort of pattern matching their reabsorption and commodification of psychedelics in general the medicalization the control again all these potentially revolutionary substances into a very narrow band with some experience which yes can be amazing medicines and can heal and can help treat PTSD in you know will veterans or not people they doing legal studies we said the message you know the most multidisciplinary Association for psychedelic studies into terminal cancer patients with psilocybin or LSD MDMA things like that there’s a danger in it be in mainstreaming here at the moment everyone’s falling over themselves to to talk about microdosing LSD you know the business periodicals The Wall Street Journal you know Time Magazine you know all these entrepreneurial so it seems like oh my God everyone’s doing it you should do it too and cilantro in in in a time time for attention deficit culture the message is going out that these things which are used to be revolutionary and now Commodities to be integrated into your busy with a clock danger of that as well and so DMT interesting ly Nails how much walking this multiple tryptamines which contains dimethyltryptamine number one you could remember that the trip to means of endogenous to Al Consciousness to humans to mammals through the plant kingdom they’re all 3 night shot it seems to be that it’s very close to the truth the main thing in your transmitter they don’t quite say that it is but it’s it’s so close that travels down the serotonin Pathways if they still indigenous tribes I know of and I know men text via rounds Darkness rituals in Thailand a couple of times a year I’ve had some friends who go into them Mexican Shaman to run Darkness for traits if the human organism is in total darkness for like 10 days or more you start to lose the Melatonin which is you know crates your skin pigment and time sense and helps the absorption of vitamin D and sunlight is melatonin Troubles Down at Saratoga Popeyes in the daytime at nighttime the tryptamines trouble down the serotonin pause Waze so if you’re entitled darkness by 60 the Melatonin supposed to leave after a few days your brain will spontaneously Patrice pineal in which episode of is a booster it’s a trip to Maine to the next to boost it for the next Cascades by Bad Day 5 6 7 you start for juice 5 Meo DMT which is what we’ve been talkin about with the Sonoran Desert toad it’s also in many different plants across the world in Stellaris cross which was quite popular in the 1990s on the shamanic the burgeoning underground some in exchange for experimenting you know and it’s grass that grows and some of them to low you but if you get a high-yield grass apparently didn’t get a very tangible return on the 5 Meo in the in the garage switch replenishable and it’s not afraid the the the coach of the environmental load on a on a native species likely thing was I was going to end unfortunately we’re also saying with his snoring desert toad but 12 and up their kind of looking okay so if you’re 12 in the person you’re interested in is a little bit older than maybe but you need to be careful with that and I think the big problem comes in as when we have people are on the cusp so you have somebody’s 15 16 17 to date someone and then they turn 18 you know the other partner turns 18 now what so now you’re not supposed to be in this relationship any longer and now all of a sudden you cannot consent to this relationship I don’t know I feel like there’s a I understand the laws and I understand the reasons for it I think it’s great to protect people but I also think we don’t give teens credit for being actual sexual persons who can make choices for themselves yeah I was certainly with a lot of older women when I was under 18 so that would have I would have been upset and sad if anyone tried to step in and on that but it’s better than a master complicated certainly you I don’t know I guess in my area would have been that just as a rule of thumb male sexual energy was just kind of demonised is being predatorial. And now it’s a lesbian couple it’s a female identified female body young women who were yeah it’s a different just so many different Dynamic so who knows where it’ll lead at this point but at least the center for sexuality is here to have these conversations and do you have do you have do you want to talk about a bit about what your your passion is as an educator in the as a professor like what are you do you have any research that you’re doing your department so are you kind of um yeah like kind of locking into a specific topics that interest you amongst all these things I mean most of my work still centers around sexuality and I usually teach introductory an advanced human sexuality courses they also teach other classes so I teach mainly in sociology departments so you know I teach about society and culture and people but I really like teaching about deviance and doing research on deviance and identity and and all that kind of stuff so a lot of my research is about BDSM is about sex work is about feminist pornography is a kinds of fun stuff I’m presenting at a conference next month on a paper that came out about a year ago and the Journal of sex medicine my colleagues and I did a study on looking at BDSM as a Leisure activity so if we can say fine it’s not pathology let’s stop talking about it that way so okay then what is it and we thought well maybe it fits Weezer and if we look at leisure as not just a Pastime but as something that you identify with something that makes you feel whole makes you feel fulfilled is something that you choose to do then then I think it can fit into that category so that’s one of the big one of the big research projects I worked on very recently that’s awesome you have to make it makes me think that if I were to have to explain anthropologically or take that sort of the view of being an alien trying to understand what people are doing her I would kind of say well when when kids are pre-pubescent they make believe and they create epic worlds of Adventure and fantasy role-play and then when people come of age you become adults and they realize that they have these new toys that develop then they want to use them and actually be imaginative and creative in and use their whole potential of their erogenous imagination and their new toys and then they can actually play freely with each other where you know when when kids are playing playing games that you would consider to be somewhat violent and nature they don’t usually actually harm or kill each other you know so it’s not that hard it’s not that great of a leap of logic right to imagine that adults would reaxis some of that imaginary fun making instincts or hate American culture as we really look down on Leisure we would look down on play and we look down on make-believe and so we decide that’s just for children and it’s not for grown ups and I think that that’s a really horrible horrible perspectives of the world cuz you’re only a child for a very very brief point of your life and you’re an adult for a really really long part of your life and wouldn’t I don’t want to stop playing. Why would you want to grow up ever and so yeah I think of BDSM I think erotic play I feel like yeah it’s just this extension of your creativity and artistic and Tristan and your means of expressing yourself and now you get to have sex so why wouldn’t you add that and everything else thank you for helping to frame it that way cuz that it’s it’s so it’s easier to digest when you when I just have never heard that what that phrase before but it just erotic play being obviously it means that you could incorporate more than just your one monogamous married partner that’s just still only allowed that culturally they by the mainstream the idea of being sexually playful with a group of people in the community of people as a social activity like a cocktail party or a mixer or I mean why can’t you believe make break into play make-believe you know the okay fine I just I’m this is my partner this is the only person I’m going to have sex with her I’m going to be in love with or however you’re defining that but I can pretend for the next hour or two that there’s someone I’ve never met before or that there a superhero or that a magical being or whatever and that can really shift your erotic interest in your erotic pleasure I think you probably would be able to say that it will make a lot of relationships last longer and be more Pap more healthier happier for sustainable resilient cuz you’re not getting bored and giving up and going you know stoic that’s great so do you have a key tell it tell me more about the center and how it how it runs and functions is it kind of like a drop-in center or do you have only certain events at certain times or how does the facility time work out we don’t actually have a physical location most of it exists inside my laptop and out of and that means we don’t have to pay for rent so that’s why we go to where we need to go so you know we have regular meetings happen in my house or one of the other board members houses we do have some events here and there are a lot of our fundraisers or just online to make it easier to reach as many people as possible and of course we’re trying to reach a broader audience than just Los Angeles so we Skype workshops we Skype things we’ve talked to classes in New York and classes in Idaho and you know all over the place so you know we do a lot of different things we also have an academic Journal that you’re positive sexuality it’s free it’s open access anyone is welcome to use it and read it and submit work to it and you know that’s been going we’re now in our third year of publication of that and that is hitting a worldwide audience some of the countries that are accessing this are it’s all over in Australia and in Belgium and in various parts of the UK and it’s hitting parts of Asia Japan so it’s really really great so we have a very wide reach and what we do we have approximately 50 to 60 volunteers who work with us we also have an internship program so we get college students who want internship credits or what the work experience and so they volunteer for a specific. Of time and work on specific projects for us at different times of the year we get most of our interns during the summer but we get interns year-round and we have in our volunteers so we have Educators we have people who are research Affiliates and who published research and use the center is one of their professional affiliations we have research assistants who helped them we do you work with events so we do some Outreach events I think on Wednesday we’re going to UCLA sextravaganza which is been happening for several years on UCLA’s campus that we usually set up a booth are we do that with other things around town we’ve also have members some of our volunteers go to conferences all over the world and represent us at different places and in different areas where they were very popular in Melbourne just found out from a friend who’s been living in Australia for past couple years so I can’t I guess we’ll have to go there at some point cool it’s a new cloud-based model it’s elegant and overhead in the neighborhood drama and that there’s a lot of reasons to transcend that six location and you can if you can be a mobile you know unit then you can just take your your your laptop and projector and some you know what your handouts or whatever you have in this b a and again because true using Skype and using other types of internet programs you know we can get into a classroom you know that might not be able to bring us there physically but we can still do it will set it up on our end and and just stream live stream wherever we need to be and and it’s very helpful to cuz we so we have volunteers I think are farthest away volunteer that we’ve had so far was in Trinidad so we can have volunteers from anywhere in the world who can work with us medication programs and so they help us Creator update or education resources in our reference materials and putting together things to help teachers facilitate this in their classes they might actually be one of our Educators we train people to go out to those classes and to give presentations to places we have research assistants to make come in with a certain amount of background knowledge and how to do academic research and some come in just wanted to learn it and so we trained them and they work with people who are doing research in various aspects of positive sexuality and so some of them get to co-author papers and some of them get to work on the ground floor of research happening and get to really get into what that is and have a voice and have an influence in what’s being done in the academic world and this is course then starts to affect policy when we’re putting scientific research in front of people and saying here this is what the says that’s not the correct or let them besides these aspects and that can be very very helpful we work with other organizations so and CSF the National Coalition for sexual freedom is one of our sort of co-working his nation’s the community academic Consortium for research on alternative sexualities we work with them as well yeah I’m getting chills yeah I’m getting chills cuz this is a lot more than I bargained for and actually seeking a lot of what you’re describing and to have yeah we hope we have a good bit of time last time feeling compelled to ask you a little bit about I guess hey if you’re into taboos right blowing them there is all I ever believed starting this week there’s going to be the biggest psychedelic science conference in the history of humanity happening in the Bay Area it’s put together by that multidisciplinary Association for psychedelic studies and the there’s a lot of really important cutting-edge legal for the first time in decades studies happening all over the world with psilocybin you know I gave magic mushrooms and MDMA and Ayahuasca and marijuana and peyote and I will gain a number of other synthetic and natural organic you could say psychedelic compounds in a lot of it is at this point in this stage of the Renaissance of research it’s really about proving the safety the relative safety of different compounds getting the dosage to be sort of understood better at also having some really important clinical trials around ending ending addiction to harmful drugs ending cigarette addiction end-of-life anxiety sexual abuse and Trauma and PTSD from War veterans there’s all these different the demographics that are starting to have really groundbreaking results and they’re doing you know they’re putting in the millions of dollars to do the the research for all this and so I bring that up just to say that this is an interesting juncture for me because the a cultural cliche about sex drugs and rock and roll and you know the way that the culture of inebrians is starting to move a large part due to Raves and festivals it’s moving more towards entheogens than just Coke and heroin and meth and booze there’s more opportunities for people who are coming into their sexuality to have access to psychedelic experiences and so there’s the new Alchemy of innocent in these Generations between sex drugs and rock and roll and if it’s it’s it’s it’s a lot more sophisticated and advanced and and and just more diverse in many ways than it was in the 60s when it was you know Acid Rock and LSD and other birth of the the hippie movement in the 60s but I’m wondering if you have in your position they’re come across any any any people who are interested in in rigorous academic study of what this new sex and drugs and rock and roll Paradigm it is shaping up to become if there’s anyone interested in that that you know of he’s been there are definitely people who are starting who are doing research on these topics and very often the connection that ends up happening in the academic research is you know if we’re looking at the sex drugs and rock and roll that of course is going to look at the outcomes and too often I think the the outcome that gets stressed is okay so what’s the what’s the public health issue so is it possible or is it likely that people are might be transmitting STIs because they might be under the influence of something or maybe they can’t we do we have to worry about consent if someone is under the influence of something that then means that they cannot now consent to what happens at that point so what happens if everybody who’s involved have done that so where does that line get drawn so I think a lot of the issues that have come up in recent research has been either on public health topics around STI transmission or on consent topics recognizing that at least by law if someone is inebriated for example they can now no longer consent to sexual activity okay so what happens if everybody involved. That’s so interesting yet that’s exactly what I’ve been actually encountering and in just by life experiences it’s there’s there’s a lot of people now who were you can say you were having expanded Consciousness through empty agentic use meaning it’s kind of a nice way of saying psychedelic no drugs but but that’s an important consideration because just because you feel like you’re enlightened than that one with God doesn’t mean that you’re immune from being the perpetrator with that Enlightenment that you don’t think you have a potential for abuse and even if it’s not that sort of shady you know where that sort of Insidious there’s also just the issue you’re not in your body if you’re having an out-of-body ecstatic psychedelic experience how how do you get even if you can send it to the idea of something earlier in the evening that has to be held through somehow and if you lose the if you become somebody else or part of your higher self or whatever it could be theirs that’s some chicky territory for sure yeah so that’s I guess there’s you know that I’ve seen like at electronic dance music events you can call him Rave but that’s kind of more you know probably more accurate term these days cuz there’s within that whole world there’s different camps and it’s more no more more bride to just called electronic dance music these days but you know there is there’s sort of harm reduction education Outreach groups that put out one sheet kind of look like glass CD mailer cards you know about business matters and they have kind of a profile of what the different substances how did how to test and make sure that they’re real or are what you’re getting it like that there’s that whole harm reduction education Outreach approach that is kind of like what you’re talking about but it’s for the party scene in just for best and better practices around that but I could see that they’re being a sum interest group of people where they would want to see things the way you’re talking about it cuz I actually no way you’re framing it it it feels like there’s a lot more due diligence for people that want to be credible and respectable and using best practices to actually think with some of these analytical tools so I’m hoping you’ll be great if there was some overlap or or or Synergy with all this stuff I think more and more what is happening as we’re seeing the people who are actually involved in all of these different spaces you know the people were actually doing whatever it is we’re talking about having more influence on the research that’s being conducted so that it creates a more authentic overall experience and I think it adds a level of legitimacy to the research so rather than a researcher sort of from on high saying well I’m going to study this group and I think what they’re doing may not be safe and so we know the perspective that I’m going to come about with this is that well this is already inherently unsafe and now I’m going to show you why it’s in safe and I think more and more we have researchers who are in these communities who are in these faces or doing all of these things and you say you know maybe we need to do is talk to the people who were actually doing this and not talk to them with a preconceived notion of what’s going on or what they’re experiencing or what may be happening but go in just as a hey could give us some information to tell us about what’s happening and I think we’re seeing more of that so there has been research on for example like barebacking and there’s been research on sex workers experiences and there’s been research on sort of the the spiritual some of the spiritual Connections in the spiritual extremes that can be experienced through extreme SM activities light hookah coals and those kinds of things so we’re seeing more and more of that happening where people who are actually in these groups are part of the subcultures are also crossovers into the academic life and we’re just seeing an amazing amount of research that starting to Bubble to the surface and get a little bit of space. I think this research has been getting done for quite a while but it can be really hard to get it published because some of the academic Publishers don’t want to hear about it and I want you to my is any of these things so if they publish something on it they want to be really careful so with our journal and with some of the other journals out there we’ve been able to bridge. Cap and actually be able to show some I feel like more authentic stories well absolutely will now in this world have so many The Gatekeepers being dissolved by the power of the internet I feel like you know there’s a lot of bad journalism or untrained journalism so there’s got to be a lot of bad or untrained or Incredible or uncredible research but maybe it’s the methodology that can be what’s the word sort of feel like I could imagine what as you were speaking I was imagining will wouldn’t it be great to train the you know that like the anthropological participation observation ethnography kind of model but if you were to train if you were coming from that subculture and you wanted to sort of document your tribe and produce your own ethnography kind of amongst your friends kind of tabulate experiences and collect notes insured compare notes is there was you recommend any kind of Crash Course doing data collection for different types of research paper I’m doing ethnography in the field and sort of how that works and how you can sort of pull everything together there’s a really good little guidebooks you know a quick online search for for some of these guys are out there and ask her if she is amazing stuff I love doing a photography by the way I think it’s an incredible tool that doesn’t get use nearly enough and and it got a lot of researchers a colleague of mine she recently did a photographic ethnographic working with lgbtq Foster Youth and homeless Youth and kind of went out gave them all cameras and said take photographs of Your World of your life of who you are, and they did a whole art show you know like found a gallery in Downtown LA and just played everyone’s photographs and and you know really got people connected to them and seeing them as people who have life experiences and they’re not just sort of a category of disadvantaged kids so yeah I think there’s there’s an easy guide books out there just like a quick you can find some quick little things of how to do ethnography and how to do that and but I think a lot of that to starts with her own storytelling so things that you do and things that others do and and all the bloggers out there and everything of these are all forms of ethnography relay yeah that’s cool it’s just that it’s exciting and hopeful cuz I feel that I’m at a point where I’m doing kind of pseudo-scientific Rogue radical research that’s way too far out for any government agency or any academic institution to touch with a ten-foot pole so it’s it’s kind of on me and my colleagues and friends 2 do this sort of underground research but then hope that it it’s done in a way that it can be respectable or it can be legitimated later you know but it is probably good to do what you’re suggesting and actually have some some templates for collecting the data that mean okay here’s what would our experiment yielded and here’s the methodology in the procedure and you can test it on your own Hardy or lab or whatever replicate what you’ve done and so can you give enough information that would allow somebody else to replicate and get similar results in their own place or find totally different results which is also fascinating injured and interesting and yeah and I think that’s really I mean that’s science that is science Sciences pushing boundaries and science is you now let’s try a new thing and see what happens and science is telling a new story or New Perspective of a story and you know I think that that’s been lost over the past many years Society The Sciences inquiry science is asking questions and wondering why thing happens and how something happens and trying to figure that out and I think that we’ve sort of collectively as a larger society have sort of lost that Focus write the word crowdsourced crowd-source funding crowdsourced ideas and editing and an art I mean you were talking about that at that photo gallery exhibit and that’s a great example if you would call that a crowd-sourced ethnographic oh yeah photojournalism nice oh yeah that’s cool that’s that’s exciting time so I’m also wondering now do you have do you do you or your organization the Center provide any kind of consulting services or any kind of where you could be hired or you could be sort of commissioned to do research or to consult on Research I don’t know that we’re I don’t know that anybody is really hired to do research cuz wouldn’t it be fantastic if someone will pay for that but that doesn’t happen if we do get hired as consultants for a variety of things so either individuals within the organization or the collective organization May consult on certain projects or consult on like creative curriculum for a particular thing and we have individuals who are consulted on court cases and I’m legal issues so so there’s a lot of that we also get hired by professionals like to teach professional workshops on various topics so that happens as well because we’re a nonprofit although those things are often we you know ask for fee cuz usually the people who were asking for these services are people who can pay for it but what going out to the schools we’re going to colleges in touch or we have a student group asked us to come and do something with them or like what you know we go to somebody’s community of answer something we may ask for an honorarium but we’re going to do this stuff for free so we really depend on our donors and our contributors and the people who support us to kind of give us the funding that we need in order to do what we want to do and and to publishing and all the other stuff so our journals available for free most of our Outreach staff and education program is all for free so yeah a lot of what we do depends on donations as opposed to people actually hiring us officially to do something right on that sounds like a healthy well-rounded multi Revenue stream nonprofit you’re definitely fulfilling your mission in so many beautiful dimensions and I’m just really happy to know that we’ve connected to some really feel better about living in the world with you more offline 2 just to explore some of these Consulting opportunities that you have and see what we’re about and all of that stuff were completely volunteer so none of us are paid for what we do I don’t run a paycheck nobody wants a paycheck that’s completely volunteer and yeah we’re just we’re just trying to let you know we just try to bring it enough funds to keep going and to keep doing what we’re doing and to expand so we’re actually going to be expanding our face-to-face education program out to Chicago over the next few months so Craig can you do that that’s well thank you so much that’s great I feel like it’s it’s really refreshing to to hear that there are people out there who are so dedicated to the cause that it’s that you did not just going to slam the door in your face if you don’t write a check if you know the first five minutes if you’re not going to bill me for this podcast interview right now about an hour into it is do you have a sort of committee or task force or team or just even a person who is either because they are a trauma Survivor or because it’s just near and dear to their hearts whatever reason is there you do consent workshops in self-defense or rape and assault prevention and any any more of the or any any of the sort of preventative and treatment kind of education unpreparedness we do have programs around consent we don’t really specifically talk about self defense or or right prevention in the standard sense so we don’t really talk about here’s what you can do to prevent being raped we talked about here’s what you can do to not rape someone because really this is not on the victim this is on the perpetrator but we also talked about you know here’s other ways that you might think about your sexual self and your identity in the power dynamics that you may interact with and find consensual outlets for some of your interests and behaviors and the citiz and you know we talked about a wide range of those things so it would be great if the people who are doing the Rape Crisis counseling and who are just in the trenches of dealing with battered women and in and going in and and doing you know investigations to catch meant to prosecute the perpetrators of all ages if they were I would let it would be great if in it you know in a perfect world they were seeking you all to educate themselves on better prevention and better version or diversion from the criminal whole that the response like they’re coming as the First Responders two incidents that would have been prevented by a proper education on all sides right and we do have we do have information so some of our researchers and and because we have people who are social workers who have conducted research through us who have published on how to do how to have a sex positive approach to handling victims how to have a sex positive approach to handling offenders and that these approaches can really help reduce crime can reduce negative stigma can reduce it comes cool is that would that be on your website or at some if I if I can follow up

Com and our journey together will begin rackers I’m I’m so pleased and honored and delighted to be here with you under a Terence McKenna at his funeral be found here in Venice Beach and the thing I like to do with gas specially if you’re well established in you need no introduction is really jump right into a blue sky budget kind of visioneering discussion of what the world looks like now that we have achieved our greatest Wells hopes and dreams because the funds has been allocated for great you know Grande works and projects to be done so that the thing I want to ask you to focus on for this conversation is how would the world look now that the science the Psychedelic science of Astral ecology is firmly in place and we have things like Latin taxonomy and high school textbooks and a sort of standard of the discourse in different theories and laws and principles all that would comprise a burgeoning psychedelic Sciences will called astral ecology so you’re looking back now on all of your achievements and all the headlines to get to this point in the future where it’s firmly in place and well understood and the stuff that we take for granted is now substantiated what does that world look like from your perspective thank you so much gracias gracias Gracias Madre gracias Bend it’s a perfect world and I don’t think we’ve ever in this turn of the wheel understood what that me and I don’t think we can understand what that means just from the mind I think we have to feel it with the hot and you know not just the Psychedelic but all they’ve in the NT Jinzo even the word Shamanism but what that connects to which is the web of life and the Web of Life which continues and extends and permeates and radiates in vast fix soupy Union with and through all things I mean in my experience is what I’m coming more and more into enshrinement bar and more into recognition of is that Web of Lies you know it is that microorganism which is the sentience concrescence of Old Spice thyme into Masa decide the year of when we reach a perfect age course it’s always a wise perfect it just doesn’t feel that way and look that way because we’re stuck in the moment we’re stuck in note amongst the network or a particle amongst the wave when we remember our place in the web and remember that we are in fact the ocean not the drop then everything melts away and the unity of Oneness of everything becomes apparent again and in that scenario with some of my language are being superhero being around these he’s the galactivation to me I’m still unsure of how that incarnates and how that means we function as organisms on the material plane with an awareness that we’re Eternal working away like nodal Point reflections of God in matter or the sauce or whatever language you said to you care to delineate it with Phil essentially I think I’m coming around to a lot of the Dreamtime me thoughts of the Australian Aborigines an indigenous coaches they’d understand that we once lived in a world where all these invisible ecologies of the astral land of the Soul with visible all with tangible in some sense and that we engage with them on a daily basis in fact you know we may go into that in the dreaming each not when the sugar is the lowest in the trip to Maine’s the highest and what that reveals is the multi-dimensional plateau of Consciousness that is inhibiting certain templates they may not be physical as we understand the might be energetic then maybe physicalness on the Vintage Attic frequencies if you were to step into that frequency and Body on that frequency it’s the whole understanding that Consciousness is a receiver as well as a transmitter and then you just changing the channels on the dial and my current little reef is that it’s a pan galactic BitTorrent and that we’re all only different species have a different take me to the torrent Emerald cytosol proceeding any a life and Consciousness is that the program that is loading until I wonder if what it will be like and I feel like what it will be like will be what does indigenous cultures and said it said you wake up and there’s almost no discernible fluctuation between waking and dreaming it’s like your body is at rest your mind is rejuvenating and producing the neurochemical flush it needs to optimize itself for another day working on it and you know you wake up if there’s a transition from your dream Skype and then you’re back in the extreme Skype you change the channel with full conscious awareness to imagine being conscious 24/7 all the time all the time all the time and it even when you die you step into that Consciousness and are conscious of Consciousness all the time I mean you have then become a fully aware Go activate it being that understands the gift are coming down into these fleshly bodies with an off switch right and end the sacredness of the vessel that we inhabit and the reason why perhaps we had Galactic seasons are in a galactic seasons of Consciousness where there’s a ton of the world Asian you have the dog cage in the Bronze Age and you laid up in the Golden Age which is the Pinnacle way we’re receiving food 5 bug let it go ahead signal to read from the source of the Galaxy the black hole at the center of our galaxy and then Consciousness comes in and inhabits and connects us to what permeates from the center of the Galaxy which is life life life and life will be no light from the sun which accredited by the black holes but as the Mayans believe that the center of the Galaxy hunahpu was the womb of the great mother on this is social Consciousness radiating out woods so I’m imagining being this entity this being that is aware of my Galactic connection to all those things and the gift of my individuality and I’m going about my day in a dream time Consciousness where I can Pat see entities in the astral ecology around me and you know it’s like now with language we have stop signs over there do not answer Runway stuff we have things written on the sidewalks and things written you know everywhere and then is there’s information every way we choose to look on the linguistic level and if we look at the plants over there there’s information if we choose when Verizon into connecting to read the thing and you know I’m not telepathic super-union level we are communicating with all the old living things who recognized if they are us and we are them because we’re not limited to the understanding of our Consciousness in this individual form as a as a drop we have to remember that we are the ocean so at some level the grand Galactic Gestalt has self-organizing to cohesion and remembers itself so the whole point of Mystics the right time going up and transcending the body to achieve Union with the godhead all the sauce and then once you get there it’s all very wonderfully wonderful but then in truth you know what I realized is that the source pencil it’s time incarnating back down here into into the matter world and so those two Pathways and the terrain that they Traverse Halo extensions of it and when I describe myself I am extension of it and so are you and so with the listeners and so is that trade until it’s that freaking stop sign so imagine having a Consciousness which can hold these Concepts within not just your mind but your heart that you are connected in every waking moment to everything around you in unbroken web that’s distributed Consciousness that’s why the internet is coming that’s why I’m you know 1943 Albert Hoffman got that strange presentiments to go back to that 25th lysergi compound and go and it broke out through the lab to enshrine us as a psychic lubricant to get out of the egoic Linea time and of this understanding of cause and effect in just a Linea understanding of time yet this cause-and-effect but imagine if everything is connected underneath the root system of space-time then calls an effective is holographic right and so play walking through a day you making coffee you’re making love y’all making love to the world like it would feel to me completely galactivation Citizen and you need to wait for the thing is he wants permission from the fruit the vegetables the animal and this is what indigenous cultures understood you need to wait you ask that he go that tiger whatever and it’s like we need to continue out apparently individuated Lifeforce where I can you permission to give yourself up and if we eat you you will be, how does that sound cool but there’s an energetic transfer on a very big so many clever way that is very true you are what you ate and the web continues and the energetic vibrational entrainment of the knowledge of the creatures that you ate goes into your template and we merge on some level so I mention there’s a result of mystification from all the sentient creatures as we go about a diet understand that we’re in happening individual forms yet we are all emanations of the same Central sauce and in that my fellow Divine Network that connects a soul where where that says and so you can sort of Ted between browsers remember you’re gone for MemberSource Consciousness had back to record Consciousness had my way to Barrack Obama Consciousness or Donald Trump Consciousness and this is why it is so important that is so important in the unified field Theory grounding through the collective aided being that we understand that people is one even Donald Trump is off right that everyone everything down to the smallest microbe and the smallest insect up to the Dalai Lama is important and is part of the web of life and with the Dalai Lama you know he doesn’t kill mosquitoes when it kills thing because of you the stands and this is the giantest approach in Indian philosophy that if you understand that everything is fake red and sacred because he needs you and you are red you don’t want to divert the course of its flowering ring I need the expression of its course on Earth because that is called expressing itself through that creature and so if you can help it you don’t want to kill it and then if you do kill it do it with the responsibility of knowing that it will become you when you eat it and that you’re exchanging energies so then you go out into your world of these blows apart the the transforming 20th century powered on what reality then we’re at the stage now was like you know green means becoming deep green memes and entheogens and chamonix live streams integrating into into the Western culture is it is it may just with indigenous culture we have one world not necessarily government but a unified World which understands and merges Easton West and holding you and the binaries converge but we’re still looking at it come with in the Box we can have it now it’s still think all right so will Obi-Wan let permaculture Gardens ecovillages their Toronto be transformed will fix the planet who love one another we will share Adobe no money because when will reach you know Apple in Google merge into planet gopal in the lowline Shay’s 7 billion Shades as Citizens which you know voting rights and we’ll see the company to full maximization of goods and resources around the planet and all of that is true that is a perfect world that will happen but the icing on the cake was still not in boating and anchoring a hot is this connection to all living things and what that means to the systems we have in place now so that’s my breakfast after breakfast I don’t know I’m free I’ll see what comes out of things that come up for me as your speaking is like okay the the Practical laypersons guidebook to spiritually collage vocal hygiene and I like when you were talking about the you look at this landscape that we feel like we have know some people would say we feel like we’ve mastered if you know for lack of a different word but the idea of putting up all these parameters on the way we move and the stop signs on stuff if there was a a shamanic sort of them way to guide people through simultaneously existing in that higher dimensional ecology where there is a shadow biosphere with opportunistic entities that you know whether or not they’re consciously intelligently evil the way we might you know think of bad guys you know being possessed by demons or something but just the opportunistic entities that you would want to take a spiritual hygienic bad refresh your your your aura and have guidelines and standards that that even if you don’t understand all this higher-level philosophical and cosmological stuff the average person just knows you don’t want to sit there and just do on hating somebody that you resent for a long time because this is the Practical result and if you want to get the snapshot of it so you can go in a ceremony and you’ll probably be given you know some psychedelic Scott they use in to what you’re harboring and how you should probably you know scrape those Barnacles off your your chakras or whatever you know if you have any just off the top of the cuff kind of thoughts on after we Embrace this paradigm shift and people are really enjoying it more knowing the Continuum of ecology and they’re actually starting to get wiser about their habits in a global disa Global psychonaut movement which is still anchored more in the scientific and then you are chemicals that are frequency of things and there’s a global show many Precision switch is anchoring through the infusions and different traditions and lineages with indigenous people in plants and medicines and Earth medicines and they just two sides of the same coin but all of us are entering into a rain is a being within which we are opening opening basically all Rick fields and you know that the reason I bring language to this differentiation is that one. I might not agree on the language of the other and some countries of that as well but you know what it when you taken things you know you having an energetic activation and your body is changing and let’s Escola to bioelectrical feel dry your biological field is accentuated and shines and is it if we can figure Asian and if you look at it you know I’ll just Huxley was one of first look at it I’d give her the mind that Lodge and what happens potentially with the Brian is a reducing valve of information that’s always present that fool girl activated Consciousness which is always there that we have taken down and the band with has been reduced and when we open it up we getting more information if you if you extend that computer terminology if it was surfing the net without the right software and the antivirus software you can pick up malware in my friend safe are your rights of everyone does amazing Colin’s she has to tell Rick about you know you basically older substances go taking it like browsers and you’re you’re going out onto an it into the internet or of the Planet of the you know the intergalactic to the internet and there is there is other information that there’s other programs out there and you might get an agency which is essentially this is some program we should be safe out there we may encounter it and you may get Mel wet and you need to have protection so in the show Mannix would have power. I’m not that I would you no understand that using more language that small famiglio and looking at some of the structures in relationships that I might may say that it’s made it to you but they make all of the spirit and they may say that inhabit some realm and you going into that realm of that spirit and you just got crashed their freaking frequency man and so you know he was a French doctor who founded the tacky wants the Iowa clinic in tear apart are about 20 years ago I told him at the maps conference in 2013 and you know what he said and he’s beautiful stupid English and his bravery hot open man he was saying look at the Westin trying doctor his work with Ayahuasca is well and he’s helping cleanse and Purge people of unwanted energy to go pick up in their bio energetic field and there’s a scientific for the modality around that but eventually he’s also embracing the indigenous Paradigm of entities and spirits and he signed it if you don’t believe in these things it doesn’t mean they’re not going to affect you it’s like you’re having unprotected sex and Dunn believe you going to pick up in Eclectic exes to date you know what you might be fine for the first three four times in the first time when you get it and you know it it’s like the other Boy Scout motto be prepared you know I’m sorry I encouraged, notes and Psychonauts to be prepared and just to to have a practice and I have an understanding the matter what language they use and what their belief system is to prepare themselves what they mean Cancer and yes I can oats as well as always you know quite often report these encounters with entities in tryptamine didn’t a tryptamine Top Spice whether they believe in Jesus or not I think the thing with indigenous cultures and shamanic and Mystikal cultures across the world is that they have lineages and traditions image many of them have mapped these different frequencies and states of being and I can say all those things you know it is a phone so they they are so that’s why they’ve already encountered them they’ve mapped them they know not to trade in those fields but then even if you do you know how do you do so with your psyche Gomery the shaman you know has modalities at their disposal way then which they form relationships with Gordon straight allies they may use the black Puma the end of humor the jaguar or a dragon or you know you can do a lot of NLP techniques my other friend meriana dinkova she teaches a course in navigating open States and uses load of NLP techniques to potentiate your own belief system and those type of allies would for indigenous people because they know the power of the jacket with fur in Cincinnati now it’s one of the strongest animals in the jungle and they know that role for us the of that that entity and then I can draw upon that on the Astro to protect them from other entities for Weston is it’s just just a word that animal they might not hold any resonance with so she suggest drawing upon your own culture bank and drawing upon your own archetypes and you may you know you’re my like Batman why do men lie kickoff on the astral with Spider-Man as you don’t protect aghadoe invoking the qualities of Spider-Man on the Astro and you know during the web shooter thing with your fingers when you encounter an entity because if you believe it to be true it becomes true but that’s not to the degree that you are naive going in to confront you look so good with your web shooters but you know what I didn’t think the purest hot the thing is Grayson and so all these entities of vibration and then either attracted to people that already have certain vibrations and you know you might not in Canada, so I’ve been through right he’s a Bible maybe once or twice and counted doc malevolent things and I’m not saying I’m better than anyone I’m just because whatever reason I just don’t end up in those Realms if I did you know some of the early spring says I had that I recounted in my book higher Awakenings I remember the ceremony where there was this guy who was like a stroll suicide bomber let Lucy’s home Variety. Sand ceremony at everyone and then we’ll just spinning around everywhere in the curandera was creating his like Whirlwind voltex to suck them up and you know it’s just a matter of like forming a shield so I had this whole Cote II skin of electricity is Kim khazei wants to scribe you know you just work with whatever archetypes you truly believe in and push it where could you know pump that muscle because what you believe to be true to the degree these believe it accentuates and empowers you’ll psychic muscle and the purest of the mole you know play the pure you can be in your belief in your in pain and hold that I don’t think they can touch you so you know I would encourage people to investigate their own traditions and lineages from other cultures which may resonate with them I think that many of us have a past life connections or energetic resonances with different Traditions you made me to Buddhism you may be into Shapiro Shamanism you maybe into ceremonial magic in the in the western style he may be in Terence McKenna you know all of these are modalities which was the more you learn in the more you take off the the coal to train yourself and to find a lineage in to find teaches you can believe in and trust and you can make that lineage up by yourself you can patent mansion and we even have a bit of Spiderman here in a bit of should be by there and it’ll be okay if you believe it you know if you make it work for you and one single thing that comes up a lot is like the false dichotomy between the idea that entities are subconscious fragments that are embedded within one’s own personality they’re not free-standing discrete entities that have you know any ecology or a habitat of their own what not and then there’s you know the more shamanic perspective which is did they do exist in ecology and it’s kind of like mosquitoes you know you either have bug spray or you don’t and you’re going to feel them if you don’t haven’t been prepared like an interesting fact I think something has come to me that bridge is that. The economy is to say that you know whether or not you believe they exist only as you know Nation or if they are freestanding what what what can bridge that Gap is the idea that your reaction to the phenomenological experience of it either in powers or disempower them to the point of dissolution or completely take an arm wrestling match you know what I mean to do does that how does that bounce off of your thoughts today whatever is parasitizing you opportunistically whether it’s from within you or freestanding separate entities depending on what you subscribe to you are always in control and it’s about building at 4 of strength as a spiritual Warrior to me about that the Wolves you know there’s two wolves inside the young man one of them’s good one of us evolve which one’s going to wait feed feed the good wolf bad wolf I think that’s a lot if we have to be worried has its bad sharpening that blade and start taking responsibility for every thought every word every action every deed because it ripples out into the web and you are responsible and you do a tracks what thing is coming to your field and it’s all a lesson and you know it’s the ability to see that is how you grow from that and then you continue that possible so yeah I mean this it is this what to be done so so in the astral ecology if we’re going to get a little bit more nuts and bolts mechanics, a textbook ecology or biology something that I’m particularly interested in and control Gaston is the notion that as as as we’re coming to grips with you know Psychopathology being the function of infestations of Critters are creatures that are malicious towards us but for all I know there their they’re taking big bites out of our chakra energy to happily feed their their their young children to their reality they’re just you know taking a free lunch wherever we provided and I would call maybe you know smart parasites that know how to Dig Inn & Foster negative thought and behavior patterns that are going to be beneficial to them and harmful to us typical parasitism more and more about examples in nature of smart parasites that are going into jacking into the nervous system and literally if you want to use the word possessing possessing ants to drive themselves up against their you know adaptive strategies to survive to the high points the cordyceps is one example and then they do that with the answering this is the longest which infects the end particularly speciated to match other and does 1/4 steps of variation / different discs speciated type of different hats so it’s like so specialized the way that he first had to work and it’s like your population will be kept in check by your friend here the cordyceps that looks like this and function this way but they all they all function the way the Christians would describe demons possessing them into you no favors that are the original Hebrew week old testament’s type of mapping of the vanities where you have you know it was the Angels you got the dominions in the Thrones and the cherubs and there was like nine types of Angel and they have a dictionary of Angels in this 1002 e Logan than that yeah I’ll land in the AL assembly with that ancient Hebrew understanding as well the demons were Angels originally that fell with Lucifer from heaven and you know it’s so it’s like a sandwich when you turn it upside down everything Finds Its Own balance and residents and one Leia builds upon the next layer and repeated that language for a C5 everything eats when is eaten and everything is connected in the web so it’s a question of how much ortona me do we really have and you know the freeway versus predestination thing I guess comes into play but also it without giving up our Free Will and honoring our autonomy and the sacredness of that being in the gift we’ve been given how much can we then say well I don’t want to be possessed by a voodoo Louis. And driven to do things I don’t want to do all we using the Antonella Jeep with the fungus and it’s affecting it Levinson. Recent studies with the mad cat women and is toxoplasmosis I think it’s cold and it’s basically they discovered that there’s a there’s these bars to get into the mines and then the it makes the lights go right up to the cabin beaten by the cat and the cat is a carrier of this virus and he’s hosted in the cat and then it goes into the humans and they have these people usually women who ends up you know with 20/30 constant and it’s it’s scientifically pretty much proven that I think why don’t some of the year ago and so what we say Rodger perspective is that nature is an overlapping intersecting a set of relationships and what we’re trying to establish and and sementi is white relationship unhealthy relationships over what we perceive it for now individual selves as negative relationships because from the perspective of these viruses that great it’s like wow humans are a great feeding field to form relationships with infant them there right relationships but enough they may engender negative experiences but those ladies they get the companionship of the cat make it to hang out I get love from the cats the cats get mice it just for the mice that have to feed themselves into the web of left to become the cats so it’s somewhere in the chain something is always giving up its Owatonna to be eaten by something else now that’s not necessarily bad that’s natural for us is Sovereign beans and what we think of is the top of the food chain and in the spiritual food chain back in the Bible this is whole thing with a tomato is given dominion over or older animal and plant kingdom over the world and Adam kossman was the name of he was the one who named things and they had that level of Consciousness if I have spell out of the unity field when you not donate language but then in the naming of things you exerting power over them and distance and separation from them and in that relationship we will the man was meant to have authority and Dominion as the highest Michener in the food chain and so we’re not meant to be possessed by the things are written by other things because way we ate other thing I meant there’s a responsibility in that but you know it was the start of folding out of unity Consciousness in and leaving the garden which was the start of civilization as we know it which is where it all went wrong you know if it’s if that in itself was all is also a reflection of the Turning of the world ages in the fact I believe that what they saying in different world ages that there are different levels of consciousness would like cold 5 bog Lexie got a conscience and we went down to one bar or my is Nova and the eagle has claimed that sells Road the whole bunch of civilization when in fact and when you have full bandwidth you become the vessel for Unity Consciousness in you to be that Sovereign being and to be that spiritual warrior in the world into one to stand right relationship and do understand how to navigate their relationships with all the organisms including the micro bacteria and the astral ecology but having said that I would say that we done yet Philly want to be corrupted or infected with a negative relationship organism so we need to learn how to maintain our equilibrium and now energy required fields and go into these natural ecology and not take on board the shit right time is going into the ocean you he’s got to swim in the ocean here in Venice Beach you might step on Plankton and might be old microorganisms you may get bitten by a blue bottle Laura some animal in the water or you might just pick up something that gives you a skin rash you’ve gone by thing in the ocean unprotected so how do you know a low in tribally we know now we will do on pollution warnings in the ocean we wanted to the levels we applied science to the environment that we inhabit and this is why is science has to come back into Unity with what they perceive is mysticism which is only been split to five hundred years or so is chemistry broke off from Alchemy right now you look at The Cutting Edge Quantum science it is freaking fucking Mystikal I mean it’s just a different language but won’t the things they are saying types of of non-jew Consciousness and quantum entanglement and the future affecting the past and oldies type of mystical wisdoms which are exactly like the Traditions have said previously this is a different language fold them but let’s apply rigorous scientific inquiry to Inna dimensionality and let’s use these a hundred million dollars all I have a much this new Russian billionaire has given to the city program in the search for intelligent life and let’s just look at the ecology around us don’t you have to go to Alpha Centauri to find intelligent life that isn’t human you know let’s start really having a perspective that looks at the density of dimensionality and looking looking closer to home now did the podcast a few years ago with a woman could Susan Joy Rent-A-Center who is an astrophysicist and she also has a deep spiritual understand but just on the physic the line she wanted his old The Cutting Edge developments and verified double bond science which looks at what’s really happening and astrophysics is one of the most sly delek even surviving cancer and their appreciation of life itself and of what’s Happening you know the owner is now is we’ve crossed over the electric of the Galaxy and we both been bombarded with d-pad Galactic energies because we’ve been almost like in the back roads you know one one one Dirt Road Little Women and weight in busier and busier time so we’re getting hit by the energy of this magnitude which is a hundred thousand times more powerful than house on every seconds and that energy is being absorbed into the galactic and from the galactic into the out solar system every planet in our solar system verified by NASA you can look this up is undergoing its own form of global warming they’re all it’s overwhelming the Red Spot on Jupiter is changing I read somewhere recently you need to double-check this but that was saying that the conditions for an atmosphere of forming on the moon older different planets are experiencing just great change to the same level as us you know it because there’s energy coming in from deepest sauces and energy as we know it can’t be created or destroyed is only transmitted but it has to be anchored inside the Sun is out central point point of life in in our solar system it is absorbing a 64 Galactic energies and you know my shorthand for his son is having a sungasm is basically maturing as an entity and it’s having to almost like Celestial Tantra itself into had a deal with it and when a candle in the uprising and it is going to discharge his energies and have a mass coronal solo flight ejection it’s going to ejaculate rides those energies from the father-son which then it’ll bring down on that and we know that these type of solar flare events happened regularly in logical the time of a hundred thousands of years PlayStation gems it sells in or on one level you can say unfortunately it does burn the score to the surface of the Earth and it does extinguish you know 95% of whatever this is a very great degree of the species but again we get fixated on phone we get fixated on individuality and ego and being scared of death right in this happens all the time in the cycles of nature As Above So Below macro and micro levels so in nature when there’s a forest fire certain breeds of trees only a germinate they see when the shell has experienced enough hate to open and then when the forest by a goes through New Life is born and that’s the cycle it it does this earring in the scorching and it gets rid of the old to refresh and renew and rebirth than you and these this is the natural macro Scott’s cycles of time and if we don’t hold on to the idea of buying because the physical form is destroyed in these great solar flare events but what happens is the planet is in Dynamic tantric relationship with the sun and when does the sun gasm is Essence light itself has all the different component constituent Parts in the corner of light but it is also information it’s more than just a static mental understanding of what light is light is not just quanta is quanta that holds Quantum Code if you will write a net code is received reciprocally by DNA The Proven recently that DNA and meets its own biophotons and is sensitive to light it emits light and DNA is designed to receive light this is what a mini the Mystic tradition for saying not just about the pineal glands and all of that with DNA absorbs the code of life itself so when you comes in from source which is the Whitehall on the other side of the black hole and when it black holes birth starving to being which is what current astrophysics says with a Galaxy Y Jets of plasma which ignites by stopped in the constituent components which existing spice star is a born star radiates their own plasma entities and the electrical universal theory of the energy being transmitted and then they radiate that light which is not just a pleasant mcintee but is also a Quantum Code for DNA which forms on the wound versus of a habitable planets which again you know this is whole thing in physics which understand that they have for the great hero their life wouldn’t exist in the in the conditions for live are a miracle according to science to kiss thickly the anomaly is ridiculous get it does there’s a consensual Grace which exudes from Souls all the way down through all the constituent parts to oski now and as living beings on Earth in the womb verse of the earth as it’s an organism between Apostle when is solar flare mascarenas Hall of Fame induction comes down it burns through the biomass of forms Falls away and those bioelectrical fields which are anchored in our body that energy cannot be created or destroyed he rejoins the pool of biological field of the Earth itself and the next great blossoming begins this is what we have crossed the Event Horizon over into this is what we are leaving through this is the start and this is what climate scientist who won not tied up by the companies and I’m not afraid of the political ramifications of the word and hoping Silence by the great majority say they say we are at the cost of the next great Ice Age and then basically the global warming is the the initiatory process for the heat discharge the buildup of hate the melting of the polls global warming is happening yes there is manmade manmade you know contribution to the global warming but there is also a very large degree of energy coming in from out sun and from Galactic energies which the main driver of the process and they leave improving it recently in in physics and astrophysics physics that cloud formation is controlled by cosmic rays top of that planet it sits in a galactic an Intergalactic and it all one large micro purses and so when this activation galactivation prices happens this is when the phone rings of being pulled away but the energy goes back into the pool of being of the planet and the tantric relationship between the Sun and the Earth and the magnetic field connections a such that the activation code is is is transmitted and DNA itself receives it and I’ve done decoy line samples in the Arctic and I discovered that the cosmic-ray bombardment pretty much matches the species spurts when you species are born send you things are born so don’t be this this is a natural process right this is what is underway and the other thing about all of this is why is this shamanic Resurgens happening now with indigenous cultures have held this relationship with plant medicines and threw them in the plants the planet and then turns his Old Rip about the planet has a plan involving the plants right plan plants planet basically the idea is all these cultures around the world have how old is knowledge in this relationship and it how did ankapur it’s all the West lofts in the last turn of the wheel and the last Kali Yuga well that’s when we went down to one bar Consciousness and now what we’ve come full circle we crossed over the Olympics is the whole 2012 Western chronology but what that meant in in a galactic orbit is a we are now lying directly with galactic center of being bombarded by these energies and it’s on baby it’s on the way so the same time this is happening in Western culture specifically there is his renewal spearheaded from the 19th century on in the legacy of post-industrial culture which was totally making this dick and divorced itself from Spirit trying to deny God and say God is dead was totally atrophy from a spiritual connection and resulted in a global battery Farm civilization nine-to-five McDonald’s Paradigm that has crushed the heart love Spirit of the freaking planet but you cannot create or destroy these energy you know it exists this love vibration Easy Spirit exists and so what happened to Western culture is try to deny it creates an equal and opposite reaction under the laws of thermodynamics it spreads it and reinforce is it and the rebound and the blowback has been such that we are now living through a ton of shamanic Resurgence and Remembrance all down divine nature all them beings all about you know Divine spectral Soul bioenergetic field and we are now learning from the doctors does Maestro’s the monsters who have held the spice physically in that lineage with indigenous medicine people are shamans and the real teachers they connect with which all the plants and the plants drink in the lights the light is all right and so for the last 20 pity he’s in Western culture this shamanic surgeons has been inoculated and indoctrinating us to come back to the fold to come back to the Garden to come back he come the NSA helicopters now to come back to an understanding of right relationship with the plants the plan and the planet and this cleansing that has been happening in Albay winner Jared Fields where we stole all the negativity the old ahead sold the winds and all the entities that we’ve been connecting to unwittingly in Western culture once the cleansing has been a phase the cleansing has been like the the last phase of the old colleague of the Lost World age in the beginning of this next phase of the golden age and I believe that like the plan what time we have with them inside. We’ve been spending the Troopers once we are cleansed that’s the beginning it’s not the end right this spiritual Warrior ideas once you are cleansed you are a clean receptacle for the lot and this is what the plants do the plants drinking the light and they photosynthesize there is one molecule different between us and plants is the iron molecule which the chlorophyll works with that you know it’s like it’s one molecule different and we are being groomed to remember how to connect to the web of life and to connect to the lot and Beyond the plants is the life itself and built into a programming with the pineal gland and we got DNA itself is the hardware to receive light and so the plants a cleansing us and cleaning us and now I’ve been discovering this very very GC rich and sacred lineage with the another is medicine through both plants and the retarded switch x 5 Meo DMT so these great surgeon interest in tryptamines and DMT trip to Maine with Psychonauts as well as Shaman out across the globe and if you look on all the social media sites DMT interest outnumbers Ayahuasca 10 to 1 at least 10 to one and all the social media sites people think is more accessible and doesn’t have the baggage of all this esoteric mystical who hiring Shamanism but still just like Albert Hoffman in the lab the universal intelligence is getting through to wherever around where it needs to get through and inoculating and touching base and connecting with them to prepare for will be time for the Amelia Pond up so he’s a thing Define daimyo DMT is in the Sonoran Desert toad it’s in our brains it’s in the plant the Sequoia tribe who I’m really dealing looking forward to working with you next year they work with only the highest vibrations and they believe that when you establish a Monique relationships you go directly to the top of the food chain and said the short hand is that all the antigens I like bubbles on the Christmas tree all the Tree of Life at the top of the Christmas tree where they put the star the song the light the top of the tree of life is the light the crown right and there’s a high Rocky and is the right relationship and so we’ve been going through this cleansing with all these different modality antigens and psychedelics and they connecting us all preparation for the lights and working with the Sonoran Desert toad in working with the Sequoia width is 1 Visa which is there before y’all hey which contains not just the MAO inhibitor of the dumpsters copy Ayahuasca Vine they add me to plant I work with his won’t be so which contains high levels of 5 Meo DMT and in that Brew you will experience more want lots and more of those frequencies the high frequencies which I believe the Buddhist terminology for in the body that is that you getting closer up there the dimensional bada is to the source to the godhead into the white light tunnel experience which leads onto the Deep Oceanic lot the Inner Light Of God right of the unified field and I experienced the Sonoran Desert toad back in April with my dear brother Shaman friend Octavio Rettig in Estrella who works with this legally under the UNESCO or specifics because of his work with the fairy tribe in Sonora Mexico and he travels around the world in ministering the Sonoran Desert toad medicine legally it’s only illegal in 7 countries is fighting me out and he has the right the right credentials with United Nations backing and he’s doing amazing so many quick I just returned from Sonora and working with him in the documentary project to document this and my God I mean the most sacred thing I’ve ever experienced so what I’m understanding is the Sequoia also work with the Life and Adventures of the 5 de Mayo in there I was to brew and they say that you formed right relationships at the top of the food chain with the light and that makes you the unified future where your it can make you that if you go with that process and embody the teachings of the light and a buddy that in your energetic field and then when you come back down from those upper echelon dimensions of light into the morgue radiations all of the other levels of the astral ecology which is what n n dimethyltryptamine shut is us where there’s a natural ecology full of intelligent autonomous is a sentient or Sapient species you are empowered by the biological field It Go light not to fall prey to them not to establish wrong relationship and to be wooed by other dark entities who because you’ll feel your vibrational field he’s all of the lights the highest poisonous to the highest it doesn’t resonate you are protected by the lightning he’s to think this was my love podcast with Dan Schreiber it’s hopeless ultraline language on it and and patent medicine and should I pay his workers at Sequoia and he was also telling me about the darkness ritual which many tribes indigenous tribes across the world still do if you are some play nine days or 14 days in total darkness your brain will endogenous Lasik rate the trip the dimethyltryptamine Dri-Fit there was a Cascade and an order and a right relationship to them and this is where we need to be looking so basically you started with cheese out of 14 days in darkness your brain cells to secrete melatonin wichita’s naturally and melatonin and is like the MAO inhibitor which then strength is the body and get it ready for the next in the Cascade of trip to Maine for the next one is Penny Lane and the one after that is 5 Meo DMT what does and some practitioners who work at 5 Meo to that I helped they helping heal addictions that helping heal all these blockages in people on a somatic level in their bodies as well as they light-filled activation because 5-meo naturally when it comes guys from the brain will go through your body and it dearmas EDM is all the tensions you have stored in your energetic body and in your physical body and you might Purge and you might roll around and you might Express all the energy going through you on this 5 Meo experience but what is doing is it softening and it’s releasing somatic tension that you have stolen this is what your brain will do naturally to your body this is the built-in right relationship of the Mind Body dynamic I meant to be healthy we are meant to be long-lived we are meant to be we are not meant to get sick if we could remember Andre kick-start the right relationship with the wetware about Mind Body Spirit Dynamic it’s all built into a system to eat well to live well it’s in their eye and once the 5 Meo DMT is flushed to the body new release hold as tensions the crystalline grid of your being is anchored and is married with your somatic 40 and then the brain secretes n n dimethyltryptamine and then you trip balls body and you going to want the aboriginals in Australia coldrain time you going to what we discussed at the starred in a perfect world you go into the holographic consensual fractal merging of all things at once but you go in with the lot empowering you you’ll are energetic field remembers higher than that frequency so you do not get lost in that frequency you did not fall prey to the fractal line distributed consciousness of the n n dimethyltryptamine States you are a warrior in that state you can function in that States blank Aboriginal how many quarries did and do right the brain does bees naturally the Sequoia say you go to the lights first and then you do with it other entities in the terrestrial level right I feel this is the way forward and I feel that the wave of the last few generations of chamonix culture with a plant is leading up to the 5 Meo DMT experience to Ankara and flush and received a lot but I meant to let go of all these training wheels to then have a working pineal gland somatic mind-body-spirit activated system to then the song Gardens into the Earth we are going to be ready to receive that mass coronal solar flare ejaculatory gift from God take it in baby hold it in your bio energetic field and let it elevate youth let go of the Flesh and be born into your galactivation where does the temperature Redemptive are you know if Fearless beautiful leader as we sit in a

Oh My Goddess

oh my goddess
oh my god
oh my goddess
oh my god

oh my god/dess
you’re beautiful
i love you
i thank you

We must resacrilize
body temples as divine
Patriarchy has denied
Shamed and brutalized

Chakras are aligned
Connecting earth and sky
Holy serpents rise
worship them with pride

Sit on my lap
Legs around your back
Look into my eyes
Breathing synchronized

Cycle up the spine
The energy inside
Open the third eye
DMT will flood your mind

If you want to see the light
You must last all night
Pray between my thighs
Meditate while I’m inside

Sacred Sexuality, Divinity, and Shamanism

For hundreds of thousands of years, sacred practices were developed by traditional cultures to connect people to each other, the earth, the sky, the spirit world, etc. in a way that gave them a sense of place in the cosmos.

If something is deemed sacred it’s treated with respect, it’s engaged in ritualistically, and it’s done with full presence and undivided attention.

How many things can you think of that are treated this way in daily life?

Our synthetic reality is fast, disposable, cheap, easy, careless, thoughtless, shallow, sterile, life-less, devoid of spirit. Statistically for the average American, sexuality is the same. The average married American couple has sex for 3-5 minutes once or twice a month, and for the individual, masturbation is a sinful, guilty, embarrassing, and mechanical shallow pleasure. The dominant culture has desacrilized and commercialized sexuality. It’s consumed though magazines, tv, movies, and pornography. It’s sexist, male dominant, and exploitative.

We lack the sacred traditions to teach us about and train us in practices and methodologies to use it as a pathway to discover and apply divine energies in our lives.

So-called Western society has been at war with sacred sexuality for millennia. It’s committed global genocide and ethnocide not only conquer land and pillage resources, but to destroy any living reminder of what it was like to be free; to love the earth, to honor the feminine, to have reverence for animals, to connect to the divine through the body itself, through direct experience, through altered states of ecstasy.

Many of us have been traumatized by religions that have systematically eradicated the ancient universal spirituality known as animism where everything was alive and contained a spirit. Religions designed by murderous rulers of civilizations took the sacredness that lived in all things and all beings, corrupted it, masculinized it and shoved it into a few buildings, objects, and books.

When those who’ve liberated themselves from the torturous prison of patriarchal religion hear words like “sacred” and “spiritual” it often makes them ill. It triggers flashbacks of extreme guilt and shame, horrific visions of hell and damnation, of the absolute betrayal of love and trust by the family, community, and institutions that imposed the system of domination on their body, mind, and spirit.

Why would we want mix these toxic feelings with something wild and fun like sex? Is sacred sexuality about more rules, more silence, more standing still and being made to feel bad about everything that seems natural to a human animal, being made to cover our bodies?

No, it’s about reclaiming the sacred and the spiritual and making temples out of our own bodies to worship with and to be worshipped, as we are the human manifestations of divine energy.

Sacred sexuality is not religious self-denial and abstinent devotion to “god”. It’s not hoping to catch a glimpse of the divine by reading books in dungeons cloaked in robes that cover the whole body.

It’s about embracing the self and learning how to make oneself a conduit of divine energy. It’s not about the belief in the divine, it’s about the experience of it, an experience that’s not controlled by a ruler, a saint, or a preacher; one that’s not denied or persecuted by a clergy; one that’s not considered schizophrenic by the mental health establishment.

What is “the divine”, is it god, is it gods, is it a man, is it a woman, is it a man and a woman, is it an animal or animals, is it aliens? I think it’s all of the above and more…

My working definition for the divine is that which is beyond our untrained senses, is intelligent, and is more powerful, aware, and wise than we are.

By entering altered states of consciousness, human beings can transcend the limits of normal waking conscious and gain access to realms beyond consensus reality.

To me, it’s not one entity that I can name and worship, it’s an ecology of inter-dimensional beings, energy, and information that exist in hyperspace, beyond space and time.

Normally, our senses block out 99% percent of what surrounds us. Imagine that in the one percent of perception that we call consensus reality (the reality most of us agree is real because we can all see, feel, taste, smell, and hear it), we’re just one little tide pool, unaware that we’re actually just a tiny micro-ecosystem within the greater ecosystem of the ocean.

If you asked starfish in a tide pool what lies beyond it, one might say, “well, there’s nothing beyond it,” another might say, “what lies beyond it is all one giant singular being that looks like me,” another might say, “I don’t know,” and another might say “maybe it’s a just a greater array of diversity similar to this tide pool.”

Whichever one of those starfish you are, or your parents are, or your nation’s dominant religion is, one thing is universal: every culture that’s ever existed is absolutely obsessed with what lies beyond our senses and will do anything to try to explain it.

The difference between force-fed religious dogma and traditional spirituality is that one is a based on “precepts” and the other on “percepts”. In other words, divinity is described by elite religious leaders and the followers must believe in the precept as it’s preached about or depicted in words or art. Traditional spirituality is perceived directly through one’s own experience of ecstatic altered states.

In shamanic cultures, tools and techniques are cultivated over generations and students are trained to preserve and carrying on the traditions. Shamans help guide the members of society into and back from the spirit world but the point is for people to have the right to chose to access it and learn from it whatever they want, to go in as deep or shallow as they choose.

In the shamanic framework, the earth and the universe are alive and filled with beings that have dimensionality beyond our normal perception. The infinite cosmic drama is ever unfolding, it’s not codified in one set of rigid mystical stories. Of course there are origin stories, and other constructs that hold a peoples’ identity together. But the mythology is alive, it’s open to new experiences, new insights, new revelations. The truth can’t be crystallized, and it doesn’t need to be. Only cultures based on fear need the security of a dead world and universe governed by a patriarchal ruler.

Most of the shamanic tools and techniques that open up our access to the divine have been banned and outlawed if not destroyed and erased.

But all the doorways inside of us are still there. The now dominant culture just locked the doors and threw away the keys so we’d stay imprisoned in its dead reality. But they can never destroy the doors, never take them away.

How can we reopen these doors? There are many sacred plants and sacred practices that act as magic keys.

In the 1960s an explosion in consciousness expansion occurred, the introduction of Eastern philosophy, transcendental meditation, psychedelics, new forms of music and more all broke the American psyche out of its stiff, straight, coma and things were groovy for a while. But it didn’t last because people lacked the life-long discipline of real shaman. Experiencing the great beyond was recreational, inspirational, “trippy” and “far out”, some people became modern shaman to the best of their ability and with their own devices, but most people were just tourists without a map. They’d either get lucky and fall down the rabbit hole into Disney Land, or end up spending a “Night on Bald Mountain”. But the power to gain access to healing energies, deeper insights, develop rapport with other sentient beings, the ability to see the future, communicate with the dead, and so on, has not been reclaimed.

Sadly it seems that it would take many generations the after the collapse of modern civilization for any of its former inhabitants to truly regain these skills. Luckily there are many intact shamanic cultures to learn from today and many of them invite outsiders to partake in their ceremonies.

Our individual access to the other side is highly restricted, and the opportunity to explore it with the guidance of real shaman is remote but we still have a few powerful keys we can develop. One of the most powerful, effective, free, legal, non-drug induced means to access the divine is the cultivation and application of sexual energy.

Whether alone, with a partner, or in a group, ritualized, sacred sexual practices heighten human consciousness into some of the most ecstatic altered states. With the mixture of eye contact, breathing, energy circulation, relaxation, duration, build up, words, intentions, presence, focus, consciousness, etc. the doors will open to the divine.

Sexual energy is the most powerful energy we generate, when cultivated and directed consciously it can be a magical tool to supercharge the manifestation of our visions for the future, it can be directed towards healing diseases, it can be used to transmute negative emotions and trauma into positive energy and empowerment, it can clean the spirit and enlighten the mind.

Great sex is usually just thought of as a wild ride, like an amusement park without purpose beyond satisfaction, but why waste the power that’s generated when it can be used to reclaim lost magical powers?
