111: The Politics of Consciousness

Tue, 2016/08/02 - 8:41pm

A seminal conversation over the integration, absorption, commodification and correct relationship with entheogens and psychedelics by Western culture between Dimitri Mugianis and Rak Razam. “Psychedelics are regarded by many as a tool for personal and social transformation. And yet, even at this moment of rising racial tension, the psychedelic community mirrors the white privilege common across much of our society. What is the role of psychedelics in the current racial atmosphere? Why are the descendants of the indigenous peoples who are the source of profound plant spirit traditions so disconnected from the medicine lineages of their ancestors? What can be done to defend against the cooptation of sacred indigenous traditions by Westerners in search of novel "experiences," and who exploit these traditions for financial gain? Is there an unexamined bias and racial exclusion that continues to be a part of psychedelic culture?” For more info: https://psychedelicsandrace.splashthat.com, http://www.dimitrimugianis.com, If you like this podcast support the emergence of new paradigm media by contributing to: https://www.patreon.com/rakrazam

110: AYA: Awakenings 10th Anniversary Audio Journey

Mon, 2016/06/27 - 10:20pm

Ten years ago this June experiential journalist Rak Razam took his virgin trip down to the Amazon to explore the mythic archetype of #ayahuasca and the role of the #shaman in the 21st Century, a journey which became the book Aya: Awakenings A Shamanic Odyssey, and later the critically acclaimed documentary of the same name (http://www.aya-awakenings.com). In this extended audio narration you’ll hear the original readings from the book launch at Sera Phi, San Francisco on Sept 28, 2009, which later formed the sonic backbone of the film’s narration. So sit back and listen: "But what science cannot explain is the psychic effect of this “mother of all plants,” the sense of the numinous and the spiritual world it reportedly opens up. Those who drink say that each ayahuasca journey is unique. They say that the spirit of the vine comes alive, it guides and teaches, and on the other side nothing is ever the same. Or so they say." Come on your own ayahuasca retreat with me and curandero Percy Garcia this Sept 10-19th, 2016. http://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/10-day-ayahuasca-awakenings-retreat-in-peru-sept-10-19-2016-with-rak-razam-and-percy-garcia-tickets-15049426239

109: Supernatural River

Sun, 2016/06/05 - 1:29pm

If you like this podcast support the emergence of new paradigm media by contributing to: https://www.patreon.com/rakrazam A stream of consciousness bro chat between Rak Razam and fellow podcaster Jordon Eggleston, aka Supernatural River. In which they discuss the burgeoning global consciousness tribe, the role of the shaman and the seasons of consciousness that are now shifting. Is consciousness itself rising? Do we all have the potential to be our own shamans? What does the ‘Awakening’ really mean? Can we see that process in ourselves, in science and nature, in the rise of podcasts just like these? Is the illusion of individuality falling away? Are we ready for what that really means? Is it, as Jordan says: “We are the observers of our individual streams of consciousness. Our streams are joining together. Our streams of consciousness are becoming a Supernatural River.” For more info: jordoneggleston.com, www.shamansoftheglobalvillage.com, www.rakrazam.com.

108: Sexual Entheogens

Mon, 2016/05/02 - 2:00am

If you like this podcast support the emergence of new paradigm media by contributing to: https://www.patreon.com/rakrazam What is Tantra? How has an ancient modality utilizing life force energy been diluted to a western sexual practice? Can we harness and secrete our own endogenous sexual entheogens? Author of Advanced Spiritual Intimacy: The Yoga of Deep Spiritual Intimacy, Stuart Sovatsky posits that a there are advanced stages of kundalini awakening for spiritual intimacy and orgasmic pineal maturity that activate endogenous psychoactivity. Sovatsky argues that beyond the genital puberty there is a state of spiritual awakening via the yogic maturation of the hormones, neurotransmitters and sexual fluids into innate sexual entheogens mediated by the pineal gland. This shamanica medhra is a ‘maturation beyond the genital awakening’ and feeds the life force energy or Seed of Life into a harmonious flow of family and spirituality to anchor the Divine on earth, but it has largely been ignored in the West. Does the psychedelic experience itself tap into this pineal puberty expression? Can we endogenously activate the entheogenic potential within us using tantra?
