Disinfonauts! The long wait is over for The Hermit and pre-Orders are now available.

This book is my follow up to The Quest For Gnosis and serves as a memoir of the brutal trials that await the willing initiate who seeks to find living magic in the crucible of raw existence.

I give the brutally honest account of a depressed psychedelic vagrant in the struggle to transform while floating through the highways and cities of the American wasteland from LA to New York, to South Carolina, the Badlands, Seattle and the hills of Humboldt county, encountering violence, passion, absolute loss and the blinding light of personal revelation.  I hope you will come with me on this fantastic psychedelic tale!

“The bus ride was somber, the plane ride was somber; the color of the world had been sucked out and all I had was the emptiness of growing distance.Read the rest

“You as you know yourself are not the final term of your being. You must die to that, one way or another… Life is always on the edge of death, always. One should lack fear and have the courage of life. That’s the principle initiation of all heroic stories.” – Joseph Campbell.

We lose sight of what it is that each and every one of us is charged with just by being alive– We’re born, we do our best on this planet, decade after decade, then die. It’s a positively gargantuan task in and of itself that shouldn’t be diminished.Read the rest

WTF Is Gnosis?

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 9.54.15 AMI explain not just what gnosis is, but also why it is an important bridge between every single human.  It’s a term that can appropriate and blend concepts from virtually any wisdom tradition including those with scientific materialist leanings.

Hipgnosis is a unique book that focuses on the term ‘gnosis’ and its modern applications. Classically, Gnosis is a feminine Greek noun, which means “knowledge”. It is often used for personal knowledge compared with intellectual knowledge. At first glance this may seem like a trivial term, but it is anything but! For a further explanation of the term and its application, please take a moment to read my recent article at Reality Sandwich, titled, Gnosis As A Bridge Between Us:

While some may only find gnosis in between the notes of a freeform jazz solo, others may only find it watching their child at play in a park. Others of us may find ourselves deep in the mystic mystery, outside of anything familiar, touching the divine and hoping to never put our feet back on the ground.
