Episode 64 – Lost Tribes: Culture and the role of Spirituality in a Sustainable Civilization

Without the moral compass of a connection to the spiritual dimension, are we a lost tribe on the brink of extinction? As Western civilization slides into the Kali Yuga of materialism and a denatured relationship with nature, can examples from previous earth-based cultures show us the way forward? Is the return of the feminine and the Goddess part of the rebalancing? If so, why is it mainly men that are entheogenic spokespeople? What role have psychedelics played in the evolution of human imagination? What is the link between mystical experiences, neuroscience and parallel dimensions? Are we on the cusp of making the great leap forward into an evolved consciousness, and what does that mean to be aware of our place in the web of life?
