I of the Sun

| | | | | |

 In ancient days the sun was worshiped as a living entity, life giver and destroyer all wrapped in one… Entire cultures sacrificed and fed energy to the sun, understanding that the delicate cosmic web must be maintained, and that the process of life works both ways… As we near the time of galactic alignment on Dec 21st 2012, the sun and our solar system has risen above the galactic plane and are now being bombarded with intense galactic energies. The sun is changing, waking, and the earth is following suit, as solar flares affect our magnetic field and change consciousness itself. Join experiential journalist Rak Razam, shamanic practitioner Darpan and the visionary founder of Starseed Gardens Dan Schreiber in an intimate tribal discussion about the living sun and its connection to the sun within, how to cleanse and heal our energy bodies and the assist the process of true illumination.

This is an advance look at of one of the key presentations at the forthcoming  Entheogenesis Australis 2008 Symposium...


The Medical Marijuana Movement, alongside the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) and others are doing great work to publicise the medical benefits of psychedelics, but greater effort is needed in promoting a return to the entheogenic foundations of religion and the spiritual arena. The time is right fort each of us advocate that organised religion reinstate the Earth/Ecological Sacraments, at least at special Earth Masses and Retreats.

Taking the top off the saucepan was like lifting the lid on the last four years. That was the last time I’d smelt this abominable odour, the last time I’d attempted to drink cactus juice. I screwed my face up in anticipation. I knew what was coming but I had to remind myself it was a short-term sacrifice (the pollution of my tastebuds) for a long-term gain (up to sixteen hours of orbiting the stratosphere). It was a sacrifice I was willing to make.

Capitalist Christmas So I'm an Art Dealer now... I'm living in Manhattan selling 'original' prints of Alex Grey through a New York visionary art collector whose name is not Anna, but that's what I'll call her. Anna wasn't in town when I arrived but she contacts me on my cell as soon as she gets back into the country. A few hours later we meet up in Central Park and spend the afternoon wandering the green heart of Manhattan beset on all sides by the towers of apartments and business.

The ACTiVIST DESIGN GALLERY is a new section of Undergrowth.org devoted to the creativity in design used by political campaigns in the form of posters, stickers, stencils, advertisments and even billboards in the process of social change around us. We believe these ephemeral pieces of pop art are actually important cultural artefacts which show the ongoing dialogues of the larger culture in transition that is the dynamic of activist culture. It is the ephemeral skin of the shifting sands of the city. The conversation of the street and the home and the hand to hand transmission of ideas... To contribute your favourite activist design piece, contact: art@undergrowth.org
