Via SacredGeometryInternational.com and Grimerica.ca

Randall_Profile_Meme
Randall Carlson is back in Grimerica to once again smash your paradigm with sacred geometry, catastrophist theories, renegade scholarship and much much more. He’s on the quest for the Cosmic Grail.

It is the mission of Sacred Geometry International and The Cosmographic Research Institute to investigate and document the catastrophic history of the world and the evidence for advanced knowledge in earlier cultures; through educational programs to advance a deeper understanding of the implications of this knowledge for both past and the future of planet Earth and Human civilization upon it; and to promote strategies for successfully coping with the inevitable change that is to come.

The guys chat about alternative history – ancient archaeology pre and post ice age. And what a delicate culture we really are with the potential catastrophe via natural planetary disaster or asteroid impact. Throw in a little bit of sacred geometry and anti Al Gorian climate change talk.… Read the rest

Media Roots Radio – Charlie Hebdo & 9/11 Islamophobia Flashbacks


Robbie and Abby Martin discuss the hypocritical and deceptive nature of mainstream and alternative media coverage of the Charlie Hebdo shooting in France and why framing the event as a ‘freedom of speech’ issue is an opportunistic attempt to hijack the narrative into “the terrorists hate us for of our freedoms”. The intense global wave of Islamophobia following the attacks is examined and compared to post 9/11 hysteria.

Sex Coaching – From Shame to Shamanism

sarah rose brightSarah Rose Bright is a sex coach far beyond the vanilla kind.

“Conventional sex therapy just deals with talking,” she explained in a recent interview with The Eternities podcast. “A lot of people carry a lot of fear, a lot of shame and tension, and all sorts of things that are difficult to address with talking only. For many people, a more practical approach can take them a lot further.”

Sarah talks in the interview of how her own life was transformed via an intensive course of sexual self-development that began with her attendance on a Tantra workshop for her thirtieth birthday. Instantly, she knew she had found her calling.

She now has more than ten years experience as a somatic sex coach and sex educator, with training in sexological bodywork, NLP, Tantra, shamanism, and Taoism, and the tutelage of sexual pioneers such as Dr Patti Britton, Barbara Carrellas and Joseph Kramer.… Read the rest

IMG_6310How many of us can truly say our lives will tell a story? That when we, or someone else looks back on it, we’ll find real development, defining moments and a worthwhile central cause?

Clearly, living a life of legends is far from simple. Just getting around the obligations and momentum that are built into being a modern human can be a tough, if not insurmountable task. Depending upon your roll of the dice, you might be grappling with debt, illness, family issues or any number of other inhibitory obstacles that coerce you into living your life in a way that’s less than ideal. But, aside from that, I’m willing to bet that most of us are actually holding ourselves back.… Read the rest

Art, Artifice, and Entheodelic Storytelling

Screen Shot 2014-12-14 at 5.26.40 AM

For my inaugural podcast, Electric Lyre: Alterations of Consciousness, I sat down with J.F. Martel (author of Reclaiming Art in the Age of Artifice) and Benton Rooks (Disinfo writer and author of the graphic novels KALI YUGA and TRETA YUGA).

In the tradition of the multi-hour podcasts I find myself often listening to – like The Joe Rogan Experience and DTFH – we rambled on art, culture, and consciousness for nearly 2 hours. Benton discussed his work with KALI and TRETA YUGA, two of his graphic novels, the notion of entheodelic storytelling, and J.F. Martel talked about his upcoming publication through North Atlantic Books – Reclaiming Art in the Age of Artifice: A Treatise, Critique, and Call to Action.

We also explored the topic of art commonly labeled in psychedelic counterculture as “visionary,” or “psychedelic.” For our part, Benton, Graham Hancock, Rak Razam and myself developed the term “entheodelic” as a means to describe art that is intentionally spiritual, or mystical: initiatory art. “Etheodelica is an anti-brand with zero dogma,” Benton writes here, “an international paradigm that exists to respect and explore the central mystery of consciousness.”

I hope you’ll enjoy my foray into the podcasting world, Disinfonauts.… Read the rest
