The Wilderness of Language

an interview with Diana Slattery

Diana Reed SlatteryIn this week’s episode, Dianna Slattery speaks with Joanna about: xenolinguistics, new species of language; meeting the Other/s, presences larger than life; playing the maze game; communication with a living language; going to school in a different realm; the work of becoming more conscious of our human and spiritual possibilities; outer and inner support systems; the balance between taking risks and safety; healing with psychedelics; entheogens: at the beginning of a vast exploration; ex/plaining the visionary experiences; the essential religious impulse, without intermediaries; the freedom of forming the future, personal and collectively; the primal, wave-like language of energy; a living laboratory for human creativity.

Diana Reed Slattery was born in time to compile a full 60s resume: civil rights photojournalism, peace marching, communes. Social justice, self-exploration, and LSD went hand in hand. She went on to co-found an ecologically oriented K-12 school with working farm, dairy, livestock, and forestry that held the first renewable energy conference in Oregon. She later continued her career by founding, funding, and managing a series of not-for-profit organizations. In 1999, in an altered state of consciousness, she acquired a strange, alien script, Glide, beginning a ten-year psychonautics investigation of linguistic phenomena in the psychedelic sphere. Out of this solo – and secret – adventure came a novel, “The Maze Game”, a million words of session reports, software to work with the language, and a PhD in xenolinguistics. Slattery lives in california, and has presented her work at numerous art, technology, consciousness, and psychedelic conferences over the past 15 years. Her newest book is “Xenolinguistics: Psychedelics, Language, and the Evolution of Consciousness”.

Born to Be Blissful

an interview with Joseph Chilton Pearce

Joseph Chilton PearceIn this week’s episode, Joseph Chilton Pearce speaks with Joanna about: what he considers his best work; the key for us to tap into our enormous potential; the radical importance of nurturing  human beings from the very beginning; the work of Michel Odent; special care of pregnant women; the possibility of ecstatic birth; beyond the fear of death: bliss and joy of the pure Spirit; the difference between joy and the state of bliss; the supreme, creative, expansive intelligence of the heart.

For nearly half a century Joseph Chilton Pearce has been probing the mysteries of the human mind. One of his overriding passions remains the study of what he calls the “unfolding” of intelligence in children. He is a self-avowed iconoclast, unafraid to speak out against the myriad ways in which contemporary American culture fails to nurture the intellectual, emotional and spiritual needs and yearnings of our young people. he is the groundbreaking author of transformative books such as “The Death of Religion and the Rebirth of the Spirit”, “The Biology of Transcendence”, “The Crack in the Cosmic Egg”, magical Child”, “Evolution’s End” and “The Heart-Mind Matrix: How the Heart Can Teach the Mind New Ways to Think”.
