Guest speakers: Michael Garfield & Matt Pallamary

PROGRAM NOTES:

Today we only go back in time a short way, back to December 12, 2012 when Matt Pallmary and Michael Garfield took a break during their work on the stage production of Matt’s novel, “Land Without Evil”, in Austin, Texas. In this wide ranging discussion between salon favorite, Matt Pallamary, and long time saloner, burner, artist, and musician, Michael Garfield, one of my favorite topics was Michael’s very positive take on the long-term impact of the work of Terence McKenna, regardless of the fact that the Timewave theory had obviously been disproven. Michael is also a regular performer on the festival circuit, and his schedule may be found online at

Guest speakers: Bruce Damer and Lorenzo Hagerty

PROGRAM NOTES:

Today’s podcast features the first of the recordings from last weekend’s workshop (titled “Terence McKenna: Beyond 2012”) that Bruce Damer and Lorenzo led in the Los Angeles area on January 28, 2012. In addition to Lorenzo’s remarks and some comments by those in attendance, three videos created by Bruce Damer were shown. Those videos are embedded below.

The second part of the podcast is the Occupy Movement update, which features a conversation between Lawrence Lessig and Chris Hedges. During the course of their conversation they debate the relative merits of pushing for a Constitutional Convention verses non-violent civil disobedience. Also included is a sound bite from one of OccupyFreedomLA’s live video feeds in which a speaker addresses the actions now being taken by those who are suffering from the foreclosure epidemic that is facing so many people in the U.S.

Republic, Lost: How Money Corrupts Congress–and a Plan to Stop It

OCCUPY SEGMENT:
“The Occupy Movement seems deeply rational for not engaging in normal politics, because normal politics gets us Barack Obama.” -Lawrence Lessig

“All of the correctives to American democracy came through movements that never achieved formal political power.” -Chris Hedges

“Which in my mind means the system is not reformable but will have to be pushed aside. And I think in that sense the Occupy Movement is, in sort of classical terms, correctly defined as a revolutionary movement.” -Chris Hedges

“The legislative branches, both at the state and the federal level, are wholly owned subsidiaries of the corporate state.” -Chris Hedges

“But this is a moment, this is more the French Revolution moment. This is a moment when everything is falling apart at the same time, and it’s another reason to be pushing on every front at the same time.” -Lawrence Lessig

This is the YouTube video from which I extracted some of the audio for this podcast.

Guest speakers: Eileen Workman and Matt Pallamary

PROGRAM NOTES:

Matt Pallamary interviews Eileen Workman, co-founder of the Universe Project who spent sixteen years working in the financial services industry, most recently as a First Vice President of Investments with a major Wall Street investment firm.

Her new book, Sacred Economics: The Currency of Life has been praised by many, including Barbara Marx Hubbard, co-founder and chairperson of the board of The Foundation for Conscious Evolution who says of it:

Occasionally in human history a clear voice of good sense and compassion rises from the multitudes caught in the memetic mud of obsolete ideas about current reality. Thomas Jefferson was such a voice when he stated: “All men are created equal” at a time when there was no equality, at all. So now Eileen Workman sends a clear and intelligent message: We can live beyond the current monetary economy better, longer, kinder and more joyfully, and here is how to begin. Even though it might seem impossible, as the system continues to breakdown and the inequalities grow, her voice increasingly serves us as a guide to the next stage of evolutionary economics. We should all read it and place our faith and actions in the good sense it offers us, guiding us toward the next era of economics in the coming age.

Guest speaker: Missy & Andre Nobels, Mateo Pallamary

PROGRAM NOTES:

Andre & Missy Nobels and Mateo PallamaryMATEO: “Here’s the thing about divine creativity, and that really pegs it because creation is divine, and we are creators. And when we tap into that cosmic oneness and unity, spirit comes through, and we give ourselves up to spirit and allow spirit to move us instead of trying to move spirit.”

MATEO: “So, when you tap into divinity the ego basically disappears, and you’re in the sweet spot, you’re in the zone, and then you’re listening to yourself, and you’re blowing yourself away with what’s coming through, because it’s beyond you. It’s beyond us. It’s spirit talking.”

MATEO: “Time is just a thing that the mind does to try to make sense out of reality.”

MISSY: “I know it’s heart, for me it’s heart, whatever that is. And because the heart’s in the body, if I get in my body I can feel my heart. And I let my heart move my body so that’s my way of finding, or taping into that creative divine, or that spark.”

Missy & Andre NobelsANDRE: “You get to that point where the ego can just rest because you know your body has it, you know your being can take care of the physicality, the mechanics of whatever you’re doing, and then, once I think you can rest in yourself, in that place, then there’s space for that divine to come through.”

ANDRE: “This pocket we’re talking about, this divine spark, it’s not something you can hold onto. The tendency when you fall in love is you want to hold onto that beloved, to grasp and try to posses. And in a sense, what you do is you kill that spark. Especially when you’re doing something delicate and creative, you have to be really in the moment, because the moment you try to hold onto it, it’s gone.”

Guest speakers: Terence McKenna and Matt Pallamary

NEW! … Two of Matt Pallamary’s books are now available on Kindle:
Spirit Matters … Kindle Edition
Land Without EvilKindle Edition

PROGRAM NOTES:

[NOTE: The following quotes are by Terence McKenna.]

“Shamanism is not some obscure concern of cultural anthropologists. Shamanism is how religion was practiced for its first million years. Up until about 12,000 years ago there was no other form of religion on this planet. That was how people attained some kind of access to the sacred.”

"Land Without Evil" a novel by Matthew Pallamary“The sine qua non for obtaining a psychedelic experience is humbling yourself to the point where you admit that you must submit to the experience of the plant or the drug. This act of surrender is the major technical function you will be called upon to perform during the psychedelic trip.”

“Cultural conditioning is like bad software. Over and over it’s diddled with and re-written so that it can just run on the next attempt. But there is cultural hardware, and it’s that cultural hardware, otherwise known as authentic being, that we are propelled toward by the example of the shaman and the techniques of the shaman. … Shamanism therefore is a call to authenticity.”

“The same organizational principles which called us forth into self-reflection have called forth self-reflection out of the planet itself. And the problem then is for us to suspect this, act on our suspicion, and be good detectives, and track down the spirit in its lair. And this is what shamans are doing. They are hunters of spirit.”

“I don’t believe that shamanism without hallucinogens is authentic shamanism or comfortable shamanism.”

“Don’t diddle the dose. Once you have done your homework, go for it.”

[NOTE: The following quotes are by Matt Pallamary.]

"Spirit Matters" a memoir by Matthew Pallamary“I’ve gone through some really dark places, and I’ve done that so other people don’t have to do that.”

“One of the underlying themes about ‘Spirit Matters’ is that it’s a map, and it’s a guide, and I’m way out on point.”

“Altered states of consciousness are fascinating, and they are a part of life and part of experience, and they’re here for a reason.”

PROGRAM NOTES:

(Minutes : Seconds into program)

Matt Pallamary - author of "Land Without Evil"04:48 Matt: “Ayahuasca doesn’t hide anything. . . . It can amplify perceptions, but it can also amplify fears or shadow aspects of yourself, the dark you’ve been avoiding. Ayahuasca has an intelligence to it that seeks out your fear and exploits it, and it’s a wonderful teaching tool.”

08:39 Matt explains how the ayahuasca brew is made.

10:19 The legend of how ayahuasca was first discovered.

15:44 Preparation for an ayahuasca experience, beginning with the diet and what prescription medicines to avoid before the journey.

17:56 Details about the ayahuasca diet.

26:03 Lorenzo: “While this is true of all psychoactive substances, medicine like ayahuasca is sort of like nitroglycerine. You have to handle it with care.”

27:16 Matt: “What it comes down to, ultimately, is that you have to respect it, and you have to respect its innate intelligence. That’s why, generally speaking, the closer you stick to the diet the better experience you have.”

29:51 Tips for planning a trip to the Amazon for an ayahuasca experience.

32:19 Matt: “There’s a lot of responsibility that goes with this, because it’s a very powerful plant. And one of the things that I learned is that power, power in and of itself, is neutral, but the intention you put behind the power is what makes things happen.”

33:58 Matt: “It has to come down, ultimately, to integrity. Integrity is the core of everything.”

34:41 A discussion of chemical analogues to ayahuasca.

38:49 Matt: “It’s made to be done in a circle, and in a circle you join the energy collectively as a group. So if one particular person in the group is getting healed, everyone in the group is helping to heal that person.”

39:58 Matt: “I heard it said once that ayahuasca is the river, and the icaros and songs and things are the boats that carry you on the journey.”

PROGRAM NOTES:

(Minutes : Seconds into program)
Author and shaman Matt Pallamary and his eagle friend12:18 Matt provides some background information about his wild youth.

20:37 Some thoughts about what at what age it is best to begin deeply exploring one’s consciousness through the use of sacred medicines.

21:31 “This is one of the key tenants of shamanism, all you can ultimately go on is your own experience.”

23:40 “I want to stress that there are a lot of substances that are not good. Crystal meth, bad. Obviously, heroin, bad. Crack cocaine, bad.”

30:30 The discussion turns to shamanism.

32:33 “The medicines teach you to learn how to connect with your heart, and to follow your heart instead of your head, because your heart is actually a superior ‘brain’.”

34:23 Matt talks about the course of shamanism study he has been pursuing.

37:44 “The absolute best thing you can do for yourself, and for everybody, for the universe, for the cosmos, for the race, for humanity, truly the absolute best thing you can do for everybody, is to work on yourself and heal yourself. Because when you heal yourself you heal part of the collective, and you begin to realize that everybody around you is a mirror. Because we are all one”

39:28 Matt explains the difference between shamanism and organized religion. . . . “Shamanism, on the other hand, is based on experiential knowledge. Period.”

43:31 “Ayahuasca has a way of finding your deepest fears and bringing them out. So when you do it within a sacred circle that’s protected with a good intention, then those parts of you that you’ve been terrified of will come out, and you can deal with them more on your own terms.”
