A shaman searches the rain forest of Paraguay for medicinal cures.

Personally, I’ve always been fascinated by cosmology – curious about the big picture. For as long as I can remember, the esoteric has pulled at me like the tide. In fact, I’ve found that I’m much more at home talking about the nature of reality than I am the weather...

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: One fascinating quality of non-ordinary reality is its lack of being anchored in linear time, or really any time. The spirits do not exist in the realm of time.

Picture this: A row of attached homes, and like a ribbon being blown in the wind, they dip and wave on the crested hills of a seaside town in the UK. The neighborhood has a lovely, soft, comfortable feel to it. You watch kids riding their bikes, dogs being walked and people returning from the market...

Dream Medicine

by Tom Cowan

With so many crises raging around the earth, we teeter on the brink of despair.  Despair that there’s nothing we can do, or despair that things are not going to get better, or despair that the good things may be gone forever.  I’d like to wallow in this despair for a few moments—aware that there are things we can do—and to step back from that sense of urgent action and reflect on the feeling of despair itself...
