Why is the Internet important for change?

Psalms: Talking Back to the Divine

I thought it would be nice to write about something that wasn’t astrology for once. I keep telling people I’m not an astrologer… So let’s talk about Psalms. Most of the Abrahamic sacred texts are variants and interpretations of the Divine talking to humans. The Psalms are humans talking back to the Divine. They contain…

The dangers of practicing plant medicine with poor supervision

I and a number of my colleagues have seen a surge in the number of clients seeking assistance post-Ayahuasca ceremony. Some people present as stuck in trauma trance, and their energy looks like broken mirror shards. The challenge is that many facilitators are not trained well enough, and it is dangerous.
