Dream Time Toads at the End of Time

3

What is DreaMTime consciousness, and how do plants, toads and humans relate to it? Is the planet excreting the unfolding of unity consciousness? Do the Australian cane toads and the Sonoran Desert Toad, literally dream the landscape into being? Can the toads activate endogenous DMT and the visionary state in our own bodies simply via their sonic icaros? What is the difference between ayahuasca and yage, and how does it relate to the various types of tryptamines in nature and our own brain? Can a tribal darkness ritual reset the body and the soul via a tryptamine cascade? Can the toads really be entheogenic caretakers between the land and us humans, and is LOVE really ALL THERE IS? Find out in the ultimate discussion on 5-MeO-DMT with Dan Schreiber and experiential journalist Rak Razam… For more info: http://www.starseedgardens.com.

In A Perfect World – Being Martin

3

Join experiential journalist Rak Razam and author, visionary artist, musician, podcaster and entheogenic explorer Martin Ball, Ph.D., as they engage in a far-reaching discussion about entheogens, DMT, “radical nonduality” and the Mind of GOD. Ball is one of the pre-eminent experts on 5-MeO-DMT, having written about it in his book Being Human, and other books like Being Infinite. Sacred icons like Terence McKenna, the shamanic paradigm, entities and the projections of the ego are dissected… Should we evolve the ego, not eliminate it, in altered states? What is Mirrored Bilateral Symmetry and how does tryptamine activation express itself in this symmetry in our body? Is this the origin of yogic mudras and asanas? Do fractals point to a language of the Divine? Is God lonely? Listen to this rare meeting of minds as Razam and Ball compare experiential field notes on their 5-MeO-DMT journeys and discuss Ball’s theory of The “Entheological Paradigm,” a Grand Unified Theory of all of reality from God to the direct experience of each human being.

Standard Footer: This audio interview is an excerpt from the on-going real-time here-now science-fiction story “homomorphism”, the story is devoid of plot, characters and themes, which have been totally outsourced to the milieux of the listeners, what remains is merely some object-oriented linguistic super-glue. Just because the story is called “homomorphism”, it is neither asserted nor warranted in any manner that the story is homomorphic to the real-time reality of the theorised listeners. *

Ayahuasca Retreats – Peru

3

If you’ve read the book or seen the film, you’ll know that ‘Aya: Awakenings‘ takes you on a journey of shamanic discovery into the heart of the Amazon and the powerful plant medicine ayahuasca. Now you can be part of the awakening with these special 10-day healing retreats in April, June, Sept and Dec 2015 with Writer-Producer Rak Razam and legendary curandero Percy Garcia Lozano.

This will be an intensive medicine plant-retreat designed to introduce you to ayahuasca and the healing it can provide on physical, psychological and spiritual levels. You will be guided by Percy over five ayahuasca ceremonies to awaken to your own inner nature, with deep healing supported by dietas with different medicine plants and/or other healing work as needed. Percy’s shamanic work is based on the highest ethical standards, including personal integrity on every level. He makes a special effort to create a peaceful and safe environment in which the healing process can be more successful. Small numbers of clients enable Percy to follow and monitor the entire healing process of guests from the moment they come until the moment they leave.

Facilitator, Rak Razam says: “I’m delighted to be going full circle back to where it all began to lead ayahuasca retreats under the integral guidance of curandero Percy Garcia. I want to do something very special with these retreats, and blend my own knowledge and wisdom of the ayahuasca-shamanic-resurgence with the larger process of awakening I see happening in our Western culture. Between ceremonies I’ll be lecturing on consciousness and evolution, the Western understanding and history of altered states and the new paradigm that unifies it all together. I’ll be leading group discussions for deeper integration of the process we’ll all be going through, and developing individual plans with each participant to maximize their awakening process. Special attention will be given to integration and anchoring your experiences towards meaningful change so you can return empowered and with clear direction in your life.”

Come on a Hero’s Journey of departure, initiation and return with our three ayahuasca shamans–Percy Garcia, Ron Wheelcok and Borka Cafuk–opening up, breaking through and cleaning you out on a psychic and energetic level, and Meriana Dinkova and I will be lecturing on consciousness issues and teaching how to navigate altered states and integrate the experience.

http://www.aya-awakenings.com/watch From the Santa Cruz afterpanel of Aya: Awakenings: Rak Razam asks if ayahuasca is becoming a global plant religion for westerners that have rejected the traditional religious structures?
