In the Arms of the Moment

an interview with Philip Shepherd

Philip ShepherdPhilip Shepherd has a passion for adventure and exploration that has guided him for most of his life. At 18 it took him from his native Canada to cycle alone around the world through Europe, the Middle East, Iran, India and Japan. But that trip, adventurous as it was, merely expressed a commitment to a more crucial adventure – coming  to understand the subtle and often hidden aspects of our culture that affect us all, compromising our sense of self, our connection with the living world, our freedom of expression, and our creative engagement with the present.
In 2001 Philip began to write “New Self, New World”, and over the next nine years worked on it continuously to pull all the strands of his understanding together, and challenge the 10,000-year-old story of our culture, which tells us what it means to be human.
Philip speaks with Joanna about: a vivid relationship with what is; a mutual calling into existence; “the bubble age” of distraction; radical wholeness; allowing the world to touch our core; a grounded sensitivity; finding wholeness; remembering from the ground up.

He is an award winning teacher, international speaker, and author of “Lifecyles: Reincarnation and the Web of Life”, “Dark Night, Early Dawn: Steps to a Deep Ecology of Mind”, and “The Living Classroom”. His work explores the deeper dimensions of human psychology, including collective consciousness, reincarnation theory and philosophical implications of transpersonal states of awareness.

Through the Doors of Perception

an interview with Stephen Harrod Buhner

Stephen.jpgStephen Harrod Buhner is an Earth poet and the award-winning author of twenty books on nature, indigenous cultures, the environment, and herbal medicine. Stephen lectures yearly throughout the United States on herbal medicine, the sacredness of plants, the intelligence of Nature, and the states of mind necessary for successful habitation of Earth. He is a tireless advocate for the reincorporation of the exploratory artist, independent scholar, amateur naturalist, and citizen scientist in American society – especially as a counterweight to the influence of corporate science and technology.
His most recent works are: “Plant Intelligence and the Imaginal Realm: Beyond the Doors of Perception into the Dreaming of Earth, “Healing Lyme Coinfections: Complementary and Alternative Treatments for Bartonella and Mycoplasma” and “Herbal Antivirals: Natural Treatments for Emerging and Resistant Viral Infections (Including Influenza, SARS, West Nile and other Encephalitis Viral Infections)”.
Stephen speaks with Joanna about: seeing without preconceptions; opening the doors of meaning; into the metaphysical background of the world; trusting oneself to Nature; aesthesis: the exchange of soul essence; changing the map of reality; the primal feeling sense.
