  • Great video.....some excerpts that caught my attention:

    "We have no tradition of journeying into these mental worlds"

    "The Western Mind is a house of cards"

    "a Shaman is someone that swims in the same ocean as the Schizophrenic but the Shaman has thousands of years of sanctioned technique and tradition to draw upon"

    "we have gone sick by following a path of untrammeled rationalism"

    "when you tease apart these archaic impulses, what is at the very centre is the desire to return to a world of magical empowerment of feeling"

    "get with the program of a living world and the re-empowerment of the imagination"
