Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Shapeshifting is a classic shamanic experience or state or practice. It can happen on many levels, though of course we are always most intrigued by the physical shapeshift. John Perkins has studied and written extensively about shapeshifting, and he has practiced it in amazing and deep ways. In essence, he has gone through an incredible personal shapeshift - a transformation from the inside out - in his career and life - moving from a shady economic terrorist (supported by both corporations and governments) to an incredible teacher and shaman of the art of shapeshifting.
Editor´s Note: Michael Pollan, notable and talented author of several books, including his new released "Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation", speaks out in this video on coffee and tea. He discusses the history of the caffeinated plants and how early on coffee and tea became acceptable, giving individuals a mood change when consumed. He compares the plants with other plants, not so acceptable like tobacco, and confirms that the mixture of caffeine compounded with other properties in coffee and tea, is what we crave and look forward to every morning.
Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: If you've ever worked with tones and colors you know the power they both encompass for transformation and balancing. This simple yet powerful meditation uses sound and color to help balance and harmonize your chakras. Treat yourself to a chakra balancing by watching.
