Stephen Buhner – Plant Intelligence and the Imaginal Realm: Part Two

June 10, 2014

This is a two part interview. Part one is here.

Stephen Buhner discusses his book Plant Intelligence and the Imaginal Realm: Beyond the Doors of Perception into the Dreaming of Earth which reveals that all life forms on Earth possess intelligence, language, a sense of I and not I, and the capacity to dream. It shows that by consciously opening the doors of perception, we can reconnect with the living intelligence in Nature as kindred beings, once again become wild scientists, non-domesticated explorers of a Gaian world.

Buhner explains how to use analogical thinking and imaginal perception to directly experience the inherent meanings that flow through the world, that are expressed in each living form that surrounds us, and to directly initiate communication in return. He delves deeply into the ecological function of invasive plants, bacterial resistance to antibiotics, psychotropic plants and fungi, and, most importantly, the human species itself. He shows that human beings are not a plague on the planet – they have a specific ecological function as important to Gaia as that of plants and bacteria.

Buhner shows that the capacity for depth connection and meaning-filled communication with the living world is inherent in every human being. It is as natural as breathing, as the beating of our own hearts, as our own desire for intimacy and love. We can change how we think and in so doing begin to address the difficulties of our times.

David Jay Brown – The New Science of Psychedelics

September 1, 2013

David Jay Brown discusses his latest book The New Science of Psychedelics – At the Nexus of Culture, Consciousness, and Spirituality. For as long as humanity has existed, we have used psychedelics to raise our levels of consciousness and seek healing, first in the form of visionary plants such as cannabis, and now with the addition of manmade psychedelics such as LSD and MDMA. These substances have inspired spiritual awakenings, artistic and literary works, technological and scientific innovation, and even political revolutions. But what does the future hold for humanity and can psychedelics help take us there?
