I was surfing around looking for Dumbo and Hierophant and encountered these videos by the wonderful and wise Dr. James Fadiman who wrote the book The Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide: Safe, Therapeutic, and Sacred Journeys (http://www.amazon.com/dp/1594774021/ref=as_li_ss_til?tag=thebibwhe-20&camp=213381&creative=390973&linkCode=as4&creativeASIN=1594774021&adid=0VK5ZCP2BXWHHMFNZHMZ&&ref-refURL=http%3A%2F%2Frcm.amazon.com%2Fe%2Fcm%3Flt1% 3D_blank%26bc1%3D000000%26IS2%3D1%26bg1%3DFFFFFF%2 6fc1%3D000000%26lc1%3D0000FF%26t%3Dthebibwhe-20%26o%3D1%26p%3D8%26l%3Das4%26m%3Damazon%26f%3Dif r%26ref%3Dss_til%26asins%3D1594774021) which I have been reading this evening. I attended a full day workshop that he gave at the Cartagraphie Psychedelica Conference last week. It was a "mere coincidence" that I bumped into this page because it was located in DUMBO, Brooklyn! Ha! I'm loving the synchronicities!

In the second video, Jim quotes Ralph Metzner as saying: "Society has been moved by Deep Ecology, a transcendental, out of this world experience, from which you realize that everything in this world has an intelligence with which you can communicate. Thinking differently, we transform our relationship with the natural world, and we become an enhanced network of higher beings."

Now that's some serious thinking! Better ban those entheogens! Next think you know, folks might quit wanting to killing each other and won't need Prozac! And that's bad for business.
