This is How a Human Being Can Change:
There’s a worm addicted to eating
grape leaves.
Suddenly, he wakes up,
call it grace, whatever, something
wakes him, and he’s no longer
a worm.
He’s the entire vineyard,
and the orchard too,
the fruit, the trunks,
a growing wisdom and joy
that doesn’t need
to devour. -Rumi

Welcome to finally the first Psychedelic Sunday Show!

It's been a long time coming. For some reason, I kept putting off producing this show. In some ways, it's something that I wanted to keep to myself. But it was something Carolina said in an Imaginarium show, that said ok enough. Time to focus and make it happen. 

I put in a lot of work in planning, recording and editing this show. And I wanted to share this focus and attention with those interested. Here is the full show in two parts: 

The first part is the Meet and Great, where we introduce ourselves, Carolina Arevalo Adam Milward and myself. What happens when you bring together Two visionary artist and digital shaman? Sit back, drink some tea and smoke a bowl and find out!

The next part is where we get deep and personal, sharing our stories and now not so secret desires. 

(The orginal written opening for the show)

We are living in a very interesting and troubling time. We can either co-destroy or co-evolve.

How do we collectively dream? And how do we begin to co-create a better dream for the future of humanity? I think that’s our challenge and opportunity as we live at this time of convergence, where there are so many worldviews and beliefs systems- ways of processing reality.

Entheogens have long been used as catalysts for spiritual and visionary experiences. Many of these, which people report in shamanic journeys show similarities to those described by Jung in his explorations of the human psyche. This is especially evident in the process of individuation. It could be argued that shamanism and Jungian analysis are concerned with what shamans call “soul loss/soul retrieval,” what Jung might call withdrawal of projections toward individuation. Entheogens have been and are being used in shamanic practice as catalysts for exploring inner psychic realities. These two systems are complementary and mutually enhancing in the process of individuation, which ultimately helps us to reconnect with our own deepest nature. Plant medicines can be seen as substances, but also as emissaries, whose purpose is to catalyze consciousness in humans. Entheogens are the emissaries of Gaia, their sole purpose is to speed up the evolve of consciousness. Entheogens are unique technology, that shape and are shaped by the unique social and cultural conditions.

Jung had it right that we should live part of our life internally. We should do deep self-exploration, which also means transformation. And then combine, somehow in our everyday life, the deep knowledge and wisdom that could come from these states.

The transpersonal experiences revealing the Earth as an intelligent, conscious entity are corroborated by scientific evidence. Gregory Bateson, who created a brilliant synthesis of cybernetics, information, and systems theory, the theory of evolution, anthropology, and psychology came to the conclusion that it was logically inevitable to assume that mental processes occurred at all levels in any system or natural phenomenon of sufficient complexity. He believed that mental processes are present in cells, organs, tissues, organisms, animal and human groups, ecosystems, and even the earth and universe as a whole.

I have been releasing installments on minds of SatoriD Cut of Clips of the Show. Every Sunday I will release a new clip from this show, with new or different remix intros, outros, songs, cleaned up clips from Remix and Original Psychedelic Shows. So Look out for those.
