Hi Lew, well, probably I'd need to spend some time contemplating the matter to give you a sufficient answer, but the immediate answer is perhaps. I wrote about it in The Shamanic Odyssey: Homer, Tolkien, and the Visionary Experience: the Hopi prophecy. You can access an excerpt from the book, describing the relating (not transmission!) and content of the prophecy, here: Best, Robert

Hi Lew, the best analogy I've heard for the practice of brujeria is to viral diseases. They get into your system like viruses, and the use of them is somehow akin to biological warfare. Not at all pleasant. I'm around if you want to discuss it further, but I'll confess I'm grateful not to be much of an authority on the topic. RT

Hi Tom, I was deeply touched by this message, and read it to Susana. Of course, the genocides of indigenous people are a great taboo topic, throughout New Age as well as other circles. I think part of the reason is the grief is too great, too piercing, and our conditioning is too profound. We've been looking the other way as our elder brothers and sisters are slaughtered for so many centuries now

Hi Aine, There's a long and short answer to this question. The long one is soon to published in a book I am co-authoring with anthropologist Frederique Apffel-Marglin, tentatively titled "Sacred Soils: How Pre-Conquest Amazonian Ecological Wisdom Can Revitalize Our Soil and End Global Warming One of the main points of our book is "reality" as experienced by modern Westerners is

Thank you, Lew. Interesting thing about immersion in indigenous cultures. They teach you that our tendency to look to the stars for intelligence may blind us to the lovely fact that we are surrounded by animate nature every day. The rainforest, and work with sacred medicines within it, taught me that Outer Space isn't actually "out there." When I realized that our image of the heavens

Certainly there is a lot of very serious brujeria going on in the shamanic traditions of the rainforest. I actually think most Westerners who work with plant medicines underestimate the power of predatory animism. I could go on, but I'll stop there. It's a pretty distasteful topic. RT

Hi Michael, I'm not much of a theorist in the realm of quantum mechanics and parallel universes, probably because I don't feel much need to reference them to give validity to indigenous experiences. Nor actually do I attempt to offer metaphysical or mathematical theories about how such uncanny parallels can come about. I'm just not very mathematically minded. I work with models of consciousness

Thank you, Graham. I'm writing you from Peru, where my co-author and wife, Susana Bustos Ph.D. and I have been immersed in the vegetalista tradition of shamanism and battling it out in the crazed ecological catastrophe of the San Martin province. My book, The Shamanic Odyssey, was actually triggered by a conversation we had in the rainforest with an Ashaninkan curandero that we apprenticed wi
