Cross James Merrill, H. P. Lovecraft, and Carlos Castaneda -each imbued with a twenty-first-century aptitude for quantum theory and existential psychology-and you get the voice of Daniel Pinchbeck. And yet, nothing quite prepares us for the lucidity, rationale, and informed audacity of this seeker, skeptic, and cartographer of hidden realms.
Throughout the 1990s, Pinchbeck had been a member of New York's literary select. He wrote for publications such as The New York Times Magazine, Esquire, and Harper's Bazaar. His first book, Breaking Open the Head, was heralded as the most significant on psychedelic experimentation since the work of Terence McKenna.
But slowly something happened: Rather than writing from a journalistic remove, Pinchbeck-his literary powers at their peak-began to participate in the shamanic and metaphysical belief systems he was encountering. As his psyche and body opened to new experience, disparate threads and occurrences made sense like never before: Humanity, every sign pointed, is precariously balanced between greater self-potential and environmental disaster. The Mayan calendar's "end date" of 2012 seems to define our present age: It heralds the end of one way of existence and the return of another, in which the serpent god Quetzalcoatl reigns anew, bringing with him an unimaginably ancient-yet, to us, wholly new-way of living.
A result not just of study but also of participation, 2012 tells the tale of a single man in whose trials we ultimately recognize our own hopes and anxieties about modern life.Learn More$12.49

Tribal shamans of the Andes and Amazon have long known how to enter an altered state of awareness in which they journey to other locations, seeking the wisdom of inner spiritual guides. During his travels in South America, author and teacher John Perkins has learned these psychic journeying techniques directly from shamans of the Shuar and Quechua peoples. He explains how they perceive nonordinary reality through heightened senses, and like the shamans, he uses rhythmic music to guide you through the process of finding your own power animals and inner guides, as well as exploring your dark side and opposite-sex side, in order to benefit from the physical and spiritual healing they offer us.
In workshops, in books, and now in this audiocassette, Perkins describes his experiences learning directly from shamans.
The work of John Perkins continues to bridge the gap between Western culture and that of the indigenous people of the rain forest, facilitating an exchange of knowledge while helping to preserve not only their teachings, but their increasingly fragile environment.Learn More$10.95
