FIVE WAYS AYAHUASCA IS CHANGING LIVES FOR THE BETTER by guest blogger Rachel Harris, PhD, author of LISTENING TO AYAHUASCA
By Publicity Admin

Ayahuasca is a tea composed of two plants from the Amazon rain forest. It’s considered a medicine by the growing number of Westerners who are drinking ayahuasca in sacred ceremonies in search of psychospiritual healing.

In my research, “A Study of Ayahuasca Use in North America,” published in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs, eighty-one people completed a sixteen-page questionnaire describing how they changed after their experience of drinking this powerful brew. In addition, I personally interviewed another fifty people, again focusing on what happened after the ceremony, asking, “How are you different? How has your life changed?”

WAKING UP IN TIME: An Excerpt from THE LEAP by Steve Taylor, with a Foreword by Eckhart Tolle
By Publicity Admin

In these challenging and unknown times, it is easy to lose hope. But can difficult times actually create more awareness and even a shift in consciousness? Can we in fact have an “evolutionary leap”? 

In Steve Taylor’s The Leap: The Psychology of Spiritual Awakening, we find that the world is always giving us opportunities for deepening our presence and awakening to the beauty and happiness that are always available to us. In fact, when our reality gets more intense and overwhelming, it can be an even bigger invitation to “wake up,” spurring an awakening process that we go through collectively as a nation and beyond.

WHEN SOMEONE YOU LOVE IS DYING by guest blogger Lisa Smartt, author of WORDS AT THE THRESHOLD
By Publicity Admin

When her father became terminally ill with cancer, Lisa Smartt began transcribing his conversations and noticed that his personality underwent inexplicable changes. Once a skeptical man with a secular worldview, he developed a deeply spiritual outlook in his final days — a change that was reflected in his language. Baffled, intrigued, and compelled by her linguistics training, Smartt grabbed pencil and paper and tracked his final words.

The inquiry that began with her father’s near-death language went on to become the Final Words Project, in which she collected hundreds of people’s final words and analyzed their linguistic patterns and themes.

NEW WORLD NOW PODCAST, Episode 11: DON’T BE A JERK with BRAD WARNER
By Publicity Admin
When Brad Warner randomly signed up for a class in Zen Buddhism as a young punk rocker in Akron, Ohio, in the late 1980s, he didn’t expect his whole life to change, but it did. Now, some thirty years later, he’s an ordained Soto Zen priest and the bestselling author of books including Don’t Be a Jerk and Sit Down and Shut Up. He is celebrated for his hilarious, edgy approach to Zen, and in this great conversation he explains how the practice of intentionally sitting down and shutting up every day has the potential to improve not only our individual lives, but the world around us as well.

HOW TO FACE THE MESS WE’RE IN WITHOUT GOING CRAZY: An Excerpt from ACTIVE HOPE by Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone
By Publicity Admin

The challenges we face can be difficult even to think about. Climate change, the depletion of oil, and a politically divided nation create what can feel like an emergency of overwhelming proportions. In their book, Active Hope: How to Face the Mess We’re in without Going Crazy, authors Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone show us how to strengthen our capacity to face this crisis so that we can respond with unexpected resilience and creative power.

Drawing on decades of teaching an empowerment approach known as the Work That Reconnects, the authors guide us through a transformational process informed by mythic journeys, modern psychology, spirituality, and holistic science. This process equips us with tools to face the mess we’re in and play our role in the collective transition, or Great Turning, to a life-sustaining society. We hope you’ll enjoy this excerpt from the book.
