While we were sharing the Lucia No.3 in the VIP room at Paleo f(x) 2018, I heard that Dennis would be speaking in the next room. I asked my associates to take care of the VIPs while I went to hear him speak. I apologize for the challenged video quality. I didn't have my tripod and my arms were shaking a bit trying to keep my somewhat heavy 5D trained on him.
You may know of him as he and his brother, Terrence McKenna, are responsible for introducing Ayahuasca to the western world. He is also on the board of the Heffter Research Institute which mentors and supports psilocybin researchers, evaluates new approaches, and supports proof-of-concept studies in an effort to gather the evidence base for therapeutic treatments.
Consider checking out his new book about growing up with Terrence: "The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss", I'm certain he would appreciate it .
Anthony Peake is the author of bestselling titles The Out-of-Body Experience and The Infinite Mindfield speaks of his experience with the The Lucia No.3 hypnagogic light device.
He is a member of the International Association for the Study of Dreams, The Scientific & Medical Network and the Society for Psychical Research. He's been interviewed by and written articles for many magazines, including Kindred Spirit, Mindscape, Odyssey, New Dawn, PKD Otaku and Paranormal. His work has been featured in the Fortean Times Paranormal Handbook.
I awoke with a desire to create, moisture in the air, and a yearning for beauty. I created the image below after an epiphanous dream that I believe was inspired by reading a surfing excerpt from Daniel Duane's A Surfer's Year on the California Coast shortly before bed.
"I thought how, with the peeling wave as an ideal of perfection, the surfer's object of passion becomes the very essence of ephemerality-not a thing to be owned or a goal to be attained but rather a fleeting state to inhabit. So much more of my time, after all, passed in the dreaming and searching than in the actual riding of waves; so much more time spent driving the coast and floating between sets. Of a whole year of devotion, probably no more than a day was spent truly on my feet and surfing, so I couldn't view such a moment as this without an ardent, frustrated desire, a near-religious craving for wholeness. Unlike so many other passions: while on might, I suppose, wish for a bloom to remain in blossom, for a ripening grape to hang always on the vine-yearnings John Keats made his own, for fleeting beauty and youth, the understandably hopeless hope that we might freeze our world's better moments-the wave's plenitude is rather in the peeling of the petal, the very motion of the falling fruit."
― Daniel Duane, Caught Inside: A Surfer's Year on the California Coast (p.99)”
When examining consciousness, we would be remiss not to speak of death and what we think happens to our consciousness when we make the final transition in this plane.
We want to introduce you to a friend with an expansive experience practicing and teaching meditation who has written a book called Overcoming the Fear of Death, Kelvin Chin.
As a teacher of meditation for 40 years, Kelvin Chin has deep experience in the field of self-development, and brings a refreshing "pragmatic idealist" approach, grounded in "knowing oneself," to his work in legal services, business development, mediation, meditation, and overcoming the fear of death.
He has been working with audiences on death and dying issues since the 1980's and has taught numerous seminars for the healthcare industry, was a Long Term Care Ombudsman for the California Department of Aging, and a co-founder of the Center For Medical Ethics and Mediation.
His book is unique. He outlines 4 belief systems regarding death that underlie all religions and cultures. His approach is nonreligious and aims to increase readers' understandings about death through their own lens of belief without creating a need to modify their individual belief structures to reduce their fear of death.
He explains 4 Main Belief Systems About Death:
1) No Belief in Afterlife
2) Afraid of Heaven or Hell
3) Looking Forward to Heaven
4) Belief in Past Lives
He walks people through the process using personal stories from friends and family in a way that humanizes the subject, making the book a ‘fun read.’
Kelvin has taught meditation in living rooms, schools, businesses worldwide for 40 years and does work with individuals in person and via phone, Internet, and Skype. Kelvin has taught more than 1,000 people from extremely diverse socio-economic groups an easy-to-learn technique of naturally Turning Within with no concentration or religious affiliation required.
