100: In a Perfect World with Rak Razam

What does a perfect world truly mean? Ben Lawson from the Tantra Punk podcast interviews shamanic facilitator and media maker Rak Razam to discuss what a post-shamanic galactivated world might feel like as consciousness is aware of the macro gestalt web of life being that we are. What value is the notion of individual ego in a distributed consciousness-mesh network between humans, plants, the Gaian matrix and entities on higher astral levels of being as IT remembers ITself? Is the ultimate flowering of unity consciousness even able to be held in individuated form, and if so, if we all hold that awareness, what do we become? Is this the return of Dreamtime Consciousness and how can we be heart-based spiritual warriors? What is the role of 5-MeO-DMT and the Light in the hierarchy of entheogenic activation? What is the cosmic and the astral ecology of entities and how do we anchor best relationship with them? A little slice of heaven in our #100th podcast, all conducted under a mural of Terence McKenna, live in Venice Beach, Friday July 24, 2015. JOIN US!

Join Peter Gorman, award-winning investigative journalist and author of Ayahuasca in My Blood and Sapo in My Soul, as he talks with Rak Razam about indigenous 'ordeal medicines' and the rise of shamanism in the West. Gorman first drank ayahuasca in 1984 and is one of the first modern wave of intrepid explorer-adventurers to document this medicine. He also introduced sapo, the secretion of the Phyllomedusa bicolor frog used by the Matses, to popular attention. What is the role of these substances in the wild, and how are they being used as the West absorbs the shamanic medicines? How can the sustainability of the vine and the frog be ensured, and how can commerciality be balanced with spirituality? A robust, provocative discussion on the state of the Western shamanic community and its impact on indigenous cultures, with Gorman and Razam.

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.

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. For more info: www.martinball.net/.

Join experiential journalist Rak Razam and Dr. Octavio Rettig, a Mexican doctor who works with the sacred medicine 5-MeO-DMT found in the Sonoran Desert Toad, the Bufo Alvarius. Rettig has worked with the Seri Tribe of Sonora, Mexico, to help treat methamphetamine addicts, reintroducing the use of the medicine to the local culture that had lost it. He has learned the ancient songs and rites of the Seri, apprenticing to 'Don Pancho', an elder shaman, has been authorised by the council of Seri elders to use this most powerful of shamanic medicines in the West. What is the connection of the Bufo toad to the local environment of Sonora, and why do the toads have the most powerful natural psychoactive in their glands? Why did previous Mesoamerican cultures worship the toad and what shamanic realms does it reveal? How can this medicine be used to initiate people on a spiritual path? What are the dangers? Why is 5-MeO-DMT so powerful, and what exactly does it do? Dr. Rettig's book The Toad of Dawn is forthcoming from Divine Arts. For more info: Octavio Rettig contact page.

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. *

94: Facing the Shadow

In shamanic culture facing the shadow means confronting the issues pushed down and away from the light. Psychospiritual maturity is the ability to stand in the presence of yourself and see what traumas influence your behaviour. Someone who knows that well is consciousness researcher, writer and podcaster James W. Jesso, author of "Decomposing the Shadow: Lessons from the Psilocybin Mushroom". Jesso has faced his own shadow, and come out the other side. Join Jesso and experiential journalist Rak Razam as they talk about the use of psilocybin as a healing modality, and the counterpointing McKenna-flavored 'cosmic mushroom' paradigm. Is the psychological model for psilocybin more useful for global culture in need of spiritual healing? What about the reported ability of psilocybin as a language catalyst? Or for neurogenesis and improving interconnectivity in the brain? How does that affect language, syntax and symbolism, and the physiological basis of our consciousness? If language comes from the necessity to convey information, is our language evolving to help map the realms entheogens take us to? Is the mycelium network connecting us to larger networks of consciousness across space and time? For more info see: http://www.jameswjesso.com

Ayahuasca tourism is on the rise, for better or worse. Join experiential journalist Rak Razam as he meets the kingmaker of Peruvian ayahuasca tourism, Alan Shoemaker, on the Boulevard in Iquitos. Shoemaker is an influential and sometimes controversial gringo in the global ayahausca scene, and author of the recent Ayahuasca Medicine: The Shamanic World of Amazonian Sacred Plant Healing. Once a curandero-in-training with various curanderos himself, he was part of the early 1990s wave of western gringos drawn to Peru and engaging with indigenous shamanism. He has successfully run businesses that revolve around ayahuasca shamanism, from ayahuasca tour groups to founding the annual Amazonian Shaman Conference. He has also founded Soga Del Alma–the Vine of the Soul church, been an exporter of medicinal plants, and been busted by the American authorities and forced to become a fugitive. And as the wave of ayahuasca tourism has increased almost exponentially in recent years, Shoemaker has played an active role, promoting his conference, shamans, and pathways to hungry western audiences. But what are the repercussions of ayahuasca tourism? What are the effects on indigenous culture, and how do westerners mediate the two worlds of Grace & Madness? Photo credit: Vance Gellert

It's 2015–find the OTHERS! Join experiential journalist Rak Razam as he talks with the Executive Director of the International Evolver Network Magenta Imagination Healer about another world that is sprouting from the cracks of the old… Evolver connects individuals and 'spores' into a global network that supports multiplatform initiatives to sustain new paradigm society, from permaculture to urban farming, shamanism, new economies and social resilience, co-operative timeshares and food co-ops, and so much more… But how does one best evolve a modern distributed network that facilitate individuals and still achieve consensus? How can we have right relationship with the earth and draw upon indigenous tribal logistics without misappropriation? How does a global network facilitate knowledge about plant medicines and non-denominational spirituality without becoming a cult? How to best embrace global diversity whilst creating the support structure for common change? Is the R-Evolution upon us, and will Russell Brand be at the fore? Seize the future, today! You are not alone! For more info see: http://www.evolvernetworkwork.org

91: COSMIC CHRIST

art montage: Alex Grey/ Matthew Fox Experiential journalist Rak Razam talks with brilliant theologian, author and religious heretic Matthew Fox, once an ordained Domenican priest, expelled by Cardinal Ratzinger (later Pope Benedict) for his radical theological leanings… Fox later joined the Episcopolian church to redefine ritual and worship for the 21st century and find ways to make religion matter in the modern world. He formed a series of rituals called "The Cosmic Mass" which he still runs to this day that blend trance/dance and the rave as a techno religion for the masses to bring direct experiential consciousness back into religion under the doctrine of "creation spirituality". Does the original biblical idea of the "Cosmic Christ" parallel modern shamanic and scientific understandings? Fox discusses the perils of Western "fast mysticism", fad spiritualities, and the need for authentic elders, as he delineates in his recent book Occupy Spirituality. How can modern mystics, spiritual warriors and prophets be in service to the global community? How can we balance the healthy sacred masculine with the sacred feminine to sidestep dogma and express joy in our spiritual relationships, to be warriors for the planet? Can ritual help us face negativity and suffering in the world, and be creative and transformative? Is this the beginning of a new religious consciousness?
