StephenGray Vision interviews Michael Stuart Ani. Michael is a truly remarkable character. He has spent much of his adult life with indigenous people in Central and South America where he has learned a number of the languages and has been instrumental in helping keep ancient knowledge alive. Michael has dedicated himself (and sometimes risked his life) to honour this mission because the knowledge that has been nearly lost but still carries living threads is essential for the survival of humanity as we enter ever more deeply into a crisis that calls out urgently for a radical re-understanding of our place in nature and the cosmos altogether.
As an added "bonus," Michael is a lovely and wise soul with the gift of the silver-tongued raconteur.
Dennis McKenna is truly one of the great elder spokespeople of the psychedelic, plant medicine world. From his youthful adventures through wild jungles of South America with his still-influential brother Terence McKenna to his continued commitment to educating and inspiring, Dennis is still going strong and clear.
In this interview he shares sharp insights on topics such as: the true function of the "plant teachers" and their role in global awakening; our proper place in nature and the cosmos; the limits of science; and the rebirth of mystery schools.
Chris Bache is a brilliant visionary. Between 1979 and 1999 he undertook an extremely demanding journey of 73 high-dose private LSD sessions (with a sitter.) In every session 'he' broke out beyond the self into the vast intelligences of the universe. The "diamonds from heaven" Chris brought back and shares with us are absolutely paradigm-shattering and essential material for anyone who cares at all about the condition and fate of humanity. We're in for massive changes now, yet this is ultimately a hopeful and beautiful vision.
